Man lachte sie für hässliche Beine aus. Aber nun ist sie nicht zu erkennen
Manchmal kennt die Grausamkeit der Leute keine Grenzen.
Jacqueline Adan weiß zu gut, was das heißt, ein Opfer von Schikane zu sein. Das musste sie fast ihr ganzes Leben lang ertragen.
Wie Newsner berichtete, wollte sie einen Brief an die schreiben, die sie wegen ihres Aussehens oder wegen ihrer Beine auslachten.
Adam nahm mehr, als 150 Kilo ab. Wenn man so viel auf einmal abnimmt, wird die Haut nicht automatisch kleiner, sondern bleibt hängen.

#tbt Disclaimer- this is not me now! I wanted to share this photo again to talk a little bit about my #selflovejourney. For me, it actually took me getting made fun of at the pool in Mexico to fully realize just how important #selflove is. This vacation was the first time I would be wearing a bathing suit in...a very long time. I had lost over 350 pounds, had 2 #skinremoval surgeries and I told myself that I would be brave enough to wear a bathing suit without a cover up. As soon as I took my cover up off and started walking towards the pool, a couple started pointing and laughing at me and putting me and my body down... I froze. In that moment I had 2 choices. 1-I could go running to put my cover up back on and go cry in the bathroom 2-get into the pool. I chose option 2. At that moment I never felt more alive. I was proud of my #hardwork and I was not going to let the opinions of others stop me from living my life. They did not know what I had been through and they do not know what I am going through. They have no right to judge me or laugh at me. So I smiled as I walked past them and got in the pool. I did not allow them to have the power. I had the power. I know how hard I worked to get to this exact moment and no one was ever going to have that power over me again. Yes it hurts, but that does not define me. So...you might be thinking that is great but how does that help me. Well, once I realized that I was the one in control- to #loseweight, make my own choices and decisions, what I feel and say about myself and how I treat others, it was so much easier for me to hold onto that power and just focus on me. No one knows what you are going through. They may have their opinions and judgements and of course they will have their comments, but no matter what, people are always going to have their opinions. You can never please everyone. So stop trying! If you are #happy, and you are making the best choices for you, that is all that matters. If not, you have the power to change it. #nevergiveup on loving yourself. No matter how hard it may seem. Own who you are, and never let anyone take that power away from you!!! #bodypositive #bodyconfidence
Sie beschloss, in Urlaub zu fahren, zum ersten Mal seit vielen Jahren zog sie einen Badeanzug an. Ein Paar beim Pool fand ihre Beine „abscheulich“.
Adam wog mehr, als 220 Kilo, als sie verstand, dass sie etwas ändern musste. Sie machte Übungen und fing an, regelmäßig gesund zu essen.

#Strength comes from within. It’s is not always about how heavy you can lift or how fast you can run. Strength comes from you. Every time you fall, you stand back up. When things get challenging, you never quit. When you mess up, you dust yourself off and keep going. Fitness is not a destination. Fitness is a lifestyle. What are my #fitnessgoals? Keep getting stronger and #stronger. When it gets hard, I wipe the sweat off my face, take a deep breath and find that #innerstrength. Even though I am already a few months back from my #skinremovalsurgery on my legs, I am still in the recovery stage and it is hard. Working out is hard. But my inner strength is stronger than any hardships I face. I will #nevergiveup I will not back down. Sometimes we have to dig down deep...find that strength. We all have it inside of us. #trustthejourney. Trust your journey. You are stronger than you think!! Xoxo
Zuerst machte sie sich Sorgen, aber die Frau beschloss, dass sie nicht aufgeben wird. Während des Urlaubs fühlte sie sich mutig genug, um einen Badeanzug anzuziehen. Das machte sie jahrelang nicht.
Als das Paar sie auslachte, atmete Adam tief ein, lächelte und ging weiter. In Instagram schrieb sie, dass das „ein wichtiger Moment“ für sie war.

Let’s talk #motivation. How did I stay #motivated to lose 350 pounds and how do I continue to keep myself motivated? The thing with motivation is that when you have it, it’s great, you feel like you can do anything. But what about when it leaves and you have absolutely zero motivation to go to the #gym, #workout or eat your #healthyfood...what happens then? I get asked all the time about how I stayed so motivated to make such a #transformation. Well...motivation does come and go it’s is all about #creatinghealthyhabits and being disciplined. For me, I go to work, then immediately head to the gym. It does not matter if I feel like going or not. I created this schedule. I know that it works for me and I know I can stick to it. When I wake up and I am just not feeling it...I still eat right and go to the gym because it has become a part of #myroutine. It becomes part of your everyday life. Of course there are days when I want to stay in bed all day and do nothing. Don’t get me wrong, there are days when that’s exactly what I do. But we need to remember that in order to #seeresults it takes dedication and time. If you #eatright and workout everyday for a week you probably won’t see much of a #change...do it for a month or maybe a few months in a row and you will begin to see results. #Discipline...does not happen over night. So create these habits and be disciplined enough to stick to them even when you don’t feel like it. Make this a #healthylifestyle so that when you have days you just aren’t feeling it, you are disciplined enough to just do it anyway; out of habit and routine. Remember you will not always be motivated. You have to learn to be #disciplined so than even when you aren’t feeling motivated you can still keep working towards your goals. It’s all about choosing between what you want now and what you want most! . . What helps to keep you motivated?? Let me know in the comments down below!!
Sie verstand, dass sie auch weiter ausgelacht wird, weil für viele nur der Körper wichtig ist. Das macht Adam zwar traurig, aber sie hat verstanden, dass man Grenzen setzen soll. Keiner wird sie deprimiert machen, egal was passiert.
„Ich will mein Leben leben und da ist es mir egal, was die anderen denken. Sie haben kein Recht, auf mich mit dem Finger zeigen und mich auszulachen.“
