As Scott had an extremely busy schedule, she didn’t have much time to take care of her health. With the passage of time, Scott’s weight only increased and reached an unhealthy situation of 263 pounds. The gained weight started slowing Jill down.
But she was quick to realize what was happening. Scott knew that if she didn’t take action at the right time, things were going to be even more complicated. So, she consulted with her doctor, who suggested she lose some pounds. And this is when Jill decided to embark on the journey to lose weight.

Jill Scott’s Weight Loss Journey
It was decided that Jill was going to lose weight. However, what was still undecided was ‘How?’. How was Jill going to lose weight? After taking advice from her doctor and consulting with multiple trainers, Jill decided to go through a natural way.
She decided to lose weight by improving her lifestyle. By improving her lifestyle Scott meant that she would cut down every unhealthy activity or food in her life, which was furthering the problem. Jill decided to make radical changes to her diet plan.
Along with altering her diet plan, Scott also decided to engage in activities that would help her in achieving her goal. Now, her only goal was to shed the unhealthy pounds and get healthier. To engage in those activities, Scott joined a gym.
She worked out in the gym for an hour. But it was not only her diet or workout, which we will discuss later, which helped her in getting lighter. There was a whole different mindset behind it. She made big changes to the way she saw her weight as well.
Accepting The Reality and Working According to It
The most important factor that played a part in Scott’s 63 pounds weight loss was her mindset. She didn’t give up or took too much pressure. Rather, Jill thought with an open mind and weighed the possibilities. First of all, Scott accepted the reality.
Jill said, “I’ll never be a stick figure”. And that’s okay. She accepted the fact. A lot of us try to be perfect. While doing so, we forget to see that we aren’t even doing okay. Whenever we decide to lose weight, we make big plans. We note this or that workout plan.
The most important thing, however, is trying. Trying every day with consistency. Because that’s what is going to solve our problems. Just like Jill, we should accept reality. Now, of course, that doesn’t mean that we should never aspire to be a “stick figure”.
What should we do, however, is we should accept our limitations as humans and accept the fact that changes occur with time. There is no magic trick that is going to solve our problems. We have to do it and they only happen with determination, consistency, and time.
Jill’s Diet Plan
After being realistic, Scott started making changes to her lifestyle. The first and foremost change that Scott made in her diet was eliminating sugar consumption. Processed sugar can be a fuel for obesity. She limited her alcohol consumption as well.
Besides making these changes, Jill also gave up eating every kind of processed food. She didn’t follow an extreme diet. Rather, Jill kept it all simple and realistic. She ate 3 meals a day. Another big change that Scott made to her eating habits was limiting meat to only 3 times a week.
In this way, most of the time, Scott only ate vegetables or fruits. She also drank a lot of water. There were two reasons behind it. One, that Scott wanted to keep herself distracted from all that unnecessary and untimely hunger. Second, she did a lot of exercises so water kept her energy level up while at the same time maintaining her hydration level.
Jill’s Workout Plan
While maintaining her diet plan, Scott gave equal importance to exercising. At first, exercising felt like hell. Talking about which, Jill said, “I’d walk up nine steps and be out of breath”. However, as time passed, slowly and gradually Jill became used to exercising.
Now, she workouts more than before. Talking about her workout plan, Jill said, “I do 60-minute cardio and strength-training exercises three times a week with my trainer, Scott Parker.” By following this healthy and consistent workout routine, Jill has successfully transformed her health.
