Jorine - 18 - 5'3" weights in at 198.8 lbs. She wants to go to college and study fashion merchandising because she loves fashion and wants to lose weight so she can wear the clothes she loves.
Mother died when Jorine was 7 yrs old of cancer. Father couldn't or wouldn't take care of Jorine and her two older sisters, Sharline and Debbie. They spent 2 years in foster care until their Aunt Marguerite and Uncle Jean took them in. Their blood relationship was never made clear. The sisters spent 8 yrs at their aunt and uncles home until Debbie left 2 yrs ago and Sherline left 1 yr ago. Jorine started putting on weight at the end of 8th grade. She fights with her aunt. Her aunt doesn't like her. Jorine tends to hide in her room. She has her own frig up there her own food and supplies. It's as if there are two separate warring households in the home.
Yeah, Yari from Delray Florida is the trainer and she is giving Jorine 70 days to lose 60 lbs.
First workout Yari learns that Jorine ran cross country in high school and their longest practice run had been 8 miles so Yari makes Jorine run 8.5 miles on the treadmill. Jorine falls of the treadmill .... shades of Biggest Loser but yari makes her get back on and Jorine finally finishes it.
I do like that Yari is showing Jorine what kind of food to shop for and showing her how to cook up a salmon filet and portobello mushrooms using coconut oil.
Day 56 - 2 week weight in - 185.8 - loses 13.0 lbs
Jorine is upset that she fell 1 pound short of her goal and cannot celebrate she has lost 13 lbs. Yari observes that Jorine gives up on herself and needs to believe in herself.
Day 50 - 184.8 - loses 1 pound
There are only 49 days left and Jorine is upset - "life is always bad", "everyone else has everything" "I have nothing", is what Jorine tells Yari during a workout. Yari asks Jorine if it is OK if she sets her up with a therapist to discuss these issues. Jorine goes to therapy.
Later Yari sets up some workout sessions with Jorines sisters as they are her support system.
Day 42 - weights in at 177.2 - loses 7.6 lbs
Day 19 - the sisters have lunch with their uncle and aunt at Stoneforge Grill. Jorine realizes (after therapy) that she cannot change her aunt only herself and how she reacts.
Day 0 - weight in at 159.0 - lost 18.2 lbs.
Three months later Jorine is having dinner in NYC with a group of friends and her sisters. She has lost another 5 lbs and weighs in at 154.
