Talk about a transformation story! Two overweight best friends with a shared dream embarked on a weight loss mission together two years ago. Two years later, both Jamie Jewitt and Henry Rogers are now high fashion models starring in campaigns for major labels, including Tom Ford, Armani and Dolce & Gabbana. Growing up as shy and self-conscious as teens, both Jamie and Henry dealt with weight problems that left them insecure and unhappy. One day, they both had enough and chose to tackle the journey of losing weight together. They took up strict vegan diets and began working out. Two years later, their hard work paid off. After losing close to 100lbs, Henry took a job at Abercrombie & Fitch, where he was spotted by an agent and signed with Models 1. Jamie, pursued modeling himself and found almost immediate success. Now, Jamie and Henry use their stories to inspire and raise awareness about body confidence in males - a topic rarely discussed. Henry told Elite Daily:
For some reason, men don’t feel like they can admit they are insecure about their looks, that they don’t feel the same pressure that women do. But with all the women paving the way for us and speaking out so confidently about their insecurities, we thought, why not admit to the world that we’re not always comfortable in our skin, either?To promote their inspiring cause and raise awareness for the body struggles men face, the pair will be starring in a photo shoot for Attitude/ Ateen, set for release this summer.
