‘Everyday I look at my body albeit very quickly and I don’t recognise the body looking back at me. 

‘The human body is a wonderful thing as it created and feeds and comforts my little love but it also cause me sadness and pain because I don’t like it anymore. I can respect it but we are not friends right now.’

Jess, who has been going to the gym routinely and documenting her sessions on Instagram, added that she wanted to hire a personal trainer, ‘to bust my but into gear because I have a whole wardrobe of clothes I want to wear again.’

‘I went on the show thinking I was strong and confident, but when Dave made me question myself, it was very eye-opening,’ Jess told the publication. 

She then began a rigorous diet and exercise regime, and proudly showed off her 10 kilogram weight-loss in a photo shoot for Woman’s Day.

‘I’m pretty proud of myself,’ Jess said at the time of her slimmed-down figure.
