How a former bartender transformed her figure from sluggish to shredded in just eight weeks

When Jaimy Chappelow first moved to Brisbane a couple of years ago, she was completely lacking in motivation.

Working at a fast food restaurant with a part-time job at a bar, she found she spent her days eating burgers and fries, and her nights drinking heavily with friends.

Deciding she wanted to take charge of her life, the 27-year-old joined a gym and embarked upon a workout program that saw her exercise for just one hour a day six days a week.

Eight weeks later, Jaimy’s body completely transformed – and her mind shifted along with it. Here, Jaimy reveals how she lost the weight, and how you can too.

According to Jaimy, when she moved to Brisbane, she was not in a healthy mindset. 

‘I was eating Ben & Jerrys ice cream at night in bed, working at a fast food restaurant where I ate lots of the food, and drinking alcohol with friends in the evenings,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.  

‘I had just moved away from my family and was lacking any discipline,’ she added.

Wanting a ‘complete lifestyle overhaul’, Jaimy discovered HIIT Australia online, which she said ‘looked like a massive family’ with plenty of positive attitudes.

‘I decided to join and set myself up for one of the challenges to see what would happen,’ she said.

Before she knew it, the 27-year-old found herself working out six days a week for an hour each time: 

‘I could only afford to train once each day, for an hour, but that was all I needed,’ she said.

Alongside this, the now personal trainer swapped fast food, ice cream and nights out for complex carbohydrates, protein and tracking her macros. 

‘In a typical day, I would have a bowl of oats, natural yoghurt and blueberries in the morning,’ she said.

‘I’d pair this with egg whites, spinach and tomato.’

Later on in the day, Jaimy said she has plenty of lean proteins like chicken and salmon, along with fresh veggies and brown rice.

She also factors in countless snacks so that she doesn’t get too hungry at any point during the day.

'I would say by week six of the challenge, I was walking past the mirror and not recognising myself,' Jaimy said (pictured before and now)

‘I would say by week six of the challenge, I was walking past the mirror and not recognising myself,’ Jaimy said.

‘I also began to get compliments at the fast food restaurant and bar about how I was looking. Not only this, but I was also so much full of energy.’

By the time she had completed the challenge, Jaimy said she decided she wanted to train as a personal trainer – and she no longer craved the fatty foods she used to.

Speaking about her tips for others who want to take charge of their health and fitness, Jaimy said it’s all about having open eyes and being willing to learn:

‘You learn so much on a challenge if you want to,’ she said. ‘It’s all about re-framing your mindset.’

The 27-year-old also said that you should never get obsessed by the number on the scales, as ‘muscle weighs more than fat and you will often put on weight in muscle before losing any’.  

‘Progress is not linear,’ she explained, saying that she has actually gone up in weight during the challenges from 54.8 kilograms to 61, while her body fat percentage has dropped.

‘There’s no point in thinking of it that way.’
