Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Jessi Gupton and her voters for helping us donate to our injured United States military veterans!

What would you recommend to others who want to be fit and healthy?

Time and persistence. You need to love your body during the process of losing weight and becoming healthier. There is no, “get skinny quick” magic pill or drink. It can take years to achieve results, and you must love yourself through that time in order to stay in track and not lose sight of your goals.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I suffered from chronic headaches and IBS throughout my childhood and high school years before I started working out and eating clean as a young adult. Now, I have neither. I feel better physically and mentally now then I did when I was a teenager. It’s amazing!

If you were the next Ms Health and Fitness, what would you do with $20,000?

I would love to go back to school and get a degree in nutrition and exercise science. My dream is to open a gym and not only train people, but help them with their nutrition.
