B Inspired is a weight loss movement that inspires people to look beyond the pounds on the scale. We conduct health/fitness as well as empowerment sessions to help people grow and look beyond the mirror. The founder of B Inspired, Jessica Key, was 319 lbs. in January of 2016 and decided to take her health more seriously by making changes one meal and one workout at a time. Recently, she has written a book called Confessions of a Buddafli: Relationships, Food, and Self-Esteem. This book takes readers on a journey that is intertwined with poetry and self-reflection. This book encompasses a journey of discovery and self love coupled with true transparency. Jessica now travels across the country telling her story and providing services through B Inspired.
