Jacqueline Adan, 30 anni, è una “Guerriera del perdere peso”. Così si definisce sul suo blog, dove documenta la battaglia che l’ha portata a smaltire ben 159 kg.
Su Instagram ha condiviso uno spiacevole episodio capitatole di recente. In vacanza in Messico, forte dei suoi progressi, Jacqueline ha compiuto un gesto che non faceva da lungo tempo: ha indossato un costume senza un pareo a coprirle le gambe.
Losing weight is hard. Yes I have lost over 350 pounds, but it was a journey. Everyone has their own reasons, challenges, and struggles as to why they ended up needing to lose weight. For me, I used food for comfort. I had an unhealthy relationship with myself and with my image. I did not take care of myself. I got myself into a position where I ended up weighing over 500 pounds before I woke up and decided I needed to change. As much as I love before and after pictures, there is also something that is …tricky about them. It is easy to look at someone else’s progress and think “wow they look so good I wish I was like that”. What these pictures don’t show is how much hard work it took to make those changes. For me, it was a lot of blood, sweat, falls, self doubt, self love, changing my ways, my thinking, wanting to give up, never giving up, laughter, pain, injury, happiness and lots and lots of tears. These pictures don’t show all of the hard work that went into those changes! So when you find yourself struggling or thinking “I wish I was like them” know that you can do it too. I hope you can see this picture and know that anything is possible. You can live a healthy and happy life that you are proud of. You can do it too!! With hard work, dedication and always believing in yourself anything is possible! . . . #jacquelineadan #jacquelinesjourney #effyourbeautystandards #selflove #lovemybody #lovemyshape #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #extremeweightloss #wlstories #onaquest #bodybuilding #bodytransformation #bodybuildingcom #poparmy #transformation #transformationfitnation #trainlikeabeastlooklikeabeauty #transformationtuesday #tuesdaytransformation #fit #fitspo #igweightloss #fattofit #naturalweightloss #fitfam
“Ero molto agitata ad andare in piscina o in spiaggia senza un pareo”, scrive la donna. “Dentro mi sento ancora quella ragazza di oltre 200 Kg… poi è successo. Non appena ho tolto il pareo, una coppia seduta a bordo piscina ha cominciato a indicarmi, a mormorare, a ridacchiare di me. E io cosa ho fatto? Un bel respiro, un sorriso e sono entrata in piscina. Per me è stato un momento di svolta. Ero cambiata. Non ero più la stessa ragazza”.
When we were on vacation in Mexico a few weeks ago, it was the first time I had worn a bathing suit in a long time, and it had been even longer since I wore a bathing suit without a cover up. 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. 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. So what did I do? I took a deep breath, smiled and walked into the pool. That was a huge moment for me. I had changed. I was not the same girl anymore. Yes I still have a lot of loose skin, I may still feel insecure at times, and yes I may still get made fun of. To be honest, yes it bothered me. But I was not going to let people like that affect me anymore! I am not going to let what other people think of me stop me from living my life. They do not know me. They do not know how I have worked my ass off to lose 350 pounds. They do not know how I am recovering from major surgeries. They have no right to sit and point and laugh at me. That’s why I smiled. It does not matter what others say or if they try to doubt you or try to bring you down. What matters is how you react to it. How you feel about yourself. Loving yourself just the way you are is hard. Others might not like that. That’s ok. I hope you love yourself. Love your body. I hope you keep doing you and just keep smiling! . . . . . #jacquelineadan #jacquelinesjourney #effyourbeautystandards #selfloveclub #selflove #lovemybody #lovemyshape #loveyourself #teamself #extremeweightloss #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #wlstories #onaquest #bodybuildingcom #bodypositive #bodyconfidence #bodyposi #transformationfitnation #motivationmonday #mondaymotivation #fitfam #fitspo #bodytransformation #igtransformations #transformationjourney
“Certo, ho ancora tanta pelle in eccesso, a volte posso sentirmi insicura e sì, possono ancora prendermi in giro. Sinceramente mi ha dato molto fastidio. Ma non lascerò farmi influenzare ancora da persone come quelle! Non permetterò che il giudizio di estranei mi impedisca di vivere la mia vita. Loro non mi conoscono. Non sanno il cu*o che mi sono fatta per perdere 159 Kg. Non sanno che mi sto rimettendo da operazioni chirurgiche importanti. Non hanno il diritto di sedersi, indicarmi e ridere di me. Per questo ho risposto con un sorriso“.
“Non importa cosa dicano gli altri o se cercano di farti dubitare o di buttarti giù. Quello che conta è come reagisci tu. Come ti senti con te stessa. Amarsi per come si è non è facile. Agli altri potresti non piacere. Io spero che voi vi amiate. Amiate il vostro corpo. Mi auguro che voi continuiate a essere semplicemente voi, e non smettiate mai di sorridere”.
#tbt to about a week ago when I was trying on a bathing suit for the first time in a looonng time! This was especially challenging since I had to find one with sleeves. While on vacation I am trying my best to keep my incisions covered and away from the sunlight, since the sun can make scaring worse! So when I found a bathing suit with sleeves I told myself “you have to try it on”. I was filled with so many emotions as I tried this on. As I looked at myself in the mirror, for the first time I did not worry about my legs, what my body looked like in a bathing suit or what other people would think of me. I saw someone who worked damn hard to get to this place, this exact moment. I was debating sharing this photo, but I asked myself “why wouldn’t you?” So…that’s exactly what I am doing! My journey is far from over, however being able to try on a bathing suit, share it with all of you, and be PROUD of how I look..that is what counts! Love yourself…always!!! . . . . #jacquelineadan #jacquelinesjourney #fattofit #bodybuilding #bodybuildingcom #bodypositive #bodyposi #goals #extremeweightloss #noexcuses #losingweight #weightloss #weightlosssupport #weightlosscommunity #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #weightlosstransformation #weightlossbeforeandafter #weightlossblogger #onaquest #fit #fitspo #obesetobeast #perfectlyimperfect #fitfam #fitspiration #fitness #workoutmotivation #effyourbeautystandards
