Jesse, a 32-year-old Chinese photographer, took major steps to transform the way his family lives. When his mother moved in with him and his pregnant wife to help them with her grandchild, Jesse decided to invite his father as well. At first, it was a move to tighten the family bond, but it quickly became a transformative reunion for the whole family.
In response to his father’s drinking habit and beer belly, Jesse decided to help him lose weight so that he would regain his appetite for life. They started slow, with fast-walking, moved onto jogging, and then they started hitting the gym. Soon, the whole family joined, went down the rabbit hole of weight loss, and came out the other end looking like an entirely different family.
Jesse photographed the entire process to use as a catalyst for the family as they go through the mental and physical challenges that come with losing weight.
The exercise regime began in late March and ended in September.
Here’s how much they changed in just about 6 months!
To make the beautiful transformation even more meaningful, Jesse stated that the best part of the whole thing was that his father became more confident.
Reportedly the family will stick to the exercise regime as their lifestyle.
