This Woman Lost 300 Pounds, But Her Journey Isn’t Quite Over Yet

excess

I have massive respect for people who turn their life around by losing a lot of weight. However, some of them get so big and then lose so much weight that they’re left with a lot of excess skin that requires surgery to be removed. One such example of this is Jacqueline Adan. She weighed over 500 lbs in 2012, but through dieting and exercise (the only real way to lose weight, I might add) she managed to lose well over 300lbs.

Anyone would be satisfied with an achievement like that, but Jacqueline still has a long weight to go, as she is unfortunately left with the aforementioned excess skin.

Her journey is far from over, though.

She began the surgeries in 2016, but the surgeries do take a lot of patience to remove all the skin.

So far, she’s had an upper and lower body lift as well as a back and arm lift.

In 2016, she began a series of skin removal surgeries.

So when she and her family went for vacation this summer, Jacqueline was both excited and nervous to put a swimsuit on for the first time in forever.

She was pleased with her progress, but she wasn’t surprised at the comments she received after removing the wraps from her legs.

“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.” Jacqueline stated.

“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.”

“I hope you love yourself. Love your body. I hope you keep doing you and just keep smiling!”

Kudos to Miss Adan for promoting self love and confidence, and especially for actually losing all that weight!
