Every New Year you promise yourself that you’ll cut back on the calories, and exercise to lose weight. In fact, it’s one of your favorite resolutions. But somewhere along the way, you lose focus and fail to stay fit. But when was the last time you actually tried to get fit with your family? If you’ve ever needed some inspiration, then this Chinese family of four will definitely prompt you to change. Jesse, his wife, and his folks decided to hop aboard the fit express, and they documented their amazing results on Instagram. Now through willpower and dedication, Jesse and his entire family have undergone an amazing transformation.The 31-year-old photographer decided that he was going to document his family’s fitness journey and post it on Instagram. And in just six months, they became leaner, and even added a brand-new member to the family.
The idea began when Jesse’s mother told him that she was going to move in with him temporarily so she could help his pregnant wife during and after the baby was born. Naturally, Jesse, asked his father to move in as well. Both father and son became super fit.
He came up with a weight loss program that would help every member of his family out, because as you can see from this photo, a family that sticks together, and loves each other, can definitely beat the battle of the bulge.
Everyone got the chance to eat some healthy options on the table in a buffet-style setting, which is common in some Asian cultures. But most importantly, only healthy food items went into their tummies.
They needed to burn some calories, so the family started going to the gym and working out. The boys did a lot of weight lifting, which definitely improved their musculature and physique. In the process, it tightened their bellies.
The family now had a collective goal to shed some pounds, and it was that dedication that led to bulging biceps, rippling, rock-hard abs, and a toned stomach for Jesse’s mom. Their bodies changed a lot, but so did their faces, as double chins disappeared for good, and you could definitely see their features getting more and more defined.
This allowed Jesse, his family, as well as their 3,074 Instagram followers to see just how much their bodies were improving through exercise and healthy dieting. Within six months, it became obvious that the weight loss program worked!
They take the concept of dad bod to a whole new level. But now that the family’s gotten a taste of the effects of dieting and exercising, it doesn’t look like they’ll be going back to their old ways anytime soon.
Eventually, the father and son duo added jogging to their daily routine. And as their bodies started looking more chiseled, the two didn’t mind taking off their shirts and showing their well-defined, muscular chests in public.
Of course, the biggest change was the new addition that Jesse’s mom is holding in her arms. Now the family of four has become a family of five, and they’re all healthy enough to ensure that they’ll stick around to see that little one grow up.
