Jaqueline Adan: 350+ pounds lost
In 2011, blogger Jaqueline Adan embarked on a weight loss journey that would change her life. According to her website, she hit rock bottom that year when she stepped on the scale and saw she weighed 500 pounds. From that day forward, Adan took a natural approach to weight loss that involved joining Jenny Craig and exercising more.
Cut to December 2019, when Adan had lost more than 300 pounds and undergone two skin removal surgeries to remove the excess skin left by her transformation. Despite the weight loss and surgeries, however, Adan still faces criticism for her figure. In September 2019, she took to Instagram to talk about a particular .
"I was nervous to take my cover up off and to walk into the pool or walk on the beach. I still felt like that same 500 pound girl ... then it happened," she wrote. "A couple sitting by the pool started laughing and pointing at me and making fun of me as soon as I took my cover up off."
Rather than hide, she "took a deep breath, smiled and walked into the pool." As Adan later told Refinery 29, that incident marked a major milestone for her, as she realized she was finally confident.
"I know it's not easy to love yourself all the time and love exactly who you are, especially if you have been criticized and made fun of all of your life. I know it is hard," she told the website. "But your opinion of yourself is the only opinion that matters.
