About Jemma Lucy
So, here in this article, we’ll take a look at British television personality Jemma Lucy, who overcame such hurdles and impressed us with her weight loss body transformation.
Jemma Lucy, born Jemma Henley stems from the beautiful city of Oxford, England. Born on 16th May 1988 to Robert and Jayne Henley, she is a British reality television personality, international tattoo and glamor model. She had a troubled childhood as she was always rebelling against her parents. Additionally, she has also been detained multiple times for shoplifting.
Her romantic relationships with various celebrities like Ashley Cole, Marty McKenna, Kirk Norcross, Rogan O-Connor to name a few has been flashed in the tabloids frequently.
With TV shows like Brat Camp, Signed by Katie Price, Ex on the beach and celebrity big brother to her name, she has a current net worth of 600,000 dollars and is the mother of a beautiful baby girl. She has maintained silence about the father of her daughter, saying that he is a person who isn’t in the limelight and maintaining anonymity will help her efficiently co-parent their child.
Despite her controversial online presence, she has regularly stated in interviews that she will be very open about it to her children. She isn’t proud of everything she has done, but it has got her to this place where she can afford a certain lifestyle and will like to pass it down to her children in the future.
Known for her fiery temper and no-nonsense attitude, she succumbed to emotional and mental trauma when she found out she was pregnant. Vigorous shooting and modeling schedules made it impossible for her to hit the gym regularly and eat healthy. Eating out and irregular sleep patterns added more pounds to her overall body weight.
She also struggled with chronic insomnia which left her feeling tired all the time. This prevented her from not only hitting the gym regularly but also prevented her from one of her favorite activities: horse riding.
Apart from this, she also had to gain fat for her bum lift surgeries. Her doctors had advised her to gain weight before taking up the procedure. She used to painfully stuff herself with food to complete her calorie intake. The four bum lift surgeries that she underwent due to her insatiable want for larger bums took a toll on her. The excruciating pain due to the surgery and numerous painkillers that she had to gulp her made her unable to get out of her bed.
She was in a very bad place. Often crying and breaking down in the middle of the night, she even slowly moved away from the limelight. But it was then that she decided that if anyone could overcome this, it was none other than her. She had to be her own savior. She cut herself from her wild lifestyle of partying hard and boozing and decided to embark on the path of a healthy lifestyle again.
According to her, she thought that the baby would be overdue. So she decided to lose weight during her pregnancy rather than wait for the perfect moment after her delivery. She started hitting the gym regularly again. Cardio plus strength training five days a week was the plan she followed. Diet is a very important part of losing weight, and she strongly believed in this. Eating healthy and maintaining a calorie deficit was what she focused on.
Her diet mainly consisted of Green salads, healthy veggies, and an ample amount of protein from various sources. She focused a lot on cutting sugar from her meal plan. Her fans also embarked on this journey with her via her Instagram profile, where she shared her progress pictures and gym routines frequently. Soon supportive comments started pouring in. People loved her sheer determination for staying fit not only because her job required her to but even during pregnancy when you are going through an emotional turmoil.
Binge eating and emotional eating is what plagues the fitness goals of every woman when she undergoes her pregnancy. The increased body calorie requirement also adds a few pounds, but the aforementioned above suddenly puts on a lot of pounds which becomes very hard to lose post-pregnancy.
But all was not sunshine. She received a lot of negative comments on her post-pregnancy toned looks as people thought that it was aimed at mothers who gain weight during their pregnancy and the post literally body-shamed them. In addition to that, one of her posts was banned by American broadcasting association as it promoted ‘fat cutter syrups’ which wasn’t at all healthy for pregnant women. It put her in negative limelight, and she was called various derogatory names.
Despite her controversial career and private life, she has maintained a healthy lifestyle. Proper exercise, combined with good nutrition, has enabled her to overcome stretch marks due to pregnancy and maintain a toned and photogenic body.
Today she stands proud at 5 feet 7 inches with a bodyweight of 54 kgs and a voluptuous build that cameras can’t shy away from. She has faced many ups and downs, but her regular routine gyming for the past five years along with her strong will power has resulted in what she is today.
We are proud of her progress, and this will surely inspire other women to maintain a healthy lifestyle despite the challenges of pregnancy. She overcame every hurdle which came her way and ultimately flaunted her achievement with grace. Her immense hard work has surely paid off!
