“No importa lo que digan los demás o si tratan de bajar tu autoestima para que te derribes. Lo que importa es lo que tú mismo piensas de ti” - argumenta Jacqueline Adan

Hace sólo cinco años, Jacqueline Adan pesaba 226 Kg. Sin embargo, finalmente decidió luchar por su salud y bienestar. El duro trabajo combinado con algunos sacrificios dio sus resultados: semana tras semana su peso disminuía y adelgazó 158 Kg.

Las apariencias engañan

En lugar de palabras de admiración, Jacqueline tiene que lidiar con algunos comentarios no muy agradables. La razón es el exceso de piel que le ha quedado después de la pérdida de peso. Como ella dice, la gente a menudo no se da cuenta de lo heroica que es la lucha de la gente obesa contra su exceso de peso. Juzgan con demasiada facilidad, centrándose únicamente en lo que ven.

Sometimes it is hard to look at the girl on the left. It's hard to believe that girl is me. Sometimes it is hard to recognize her. When I see that girl I see someone who so desperately wanted to change. Who felt trapped, lost, scared and did not know where to start. Someone who always wore a smile, and tried to hide her sadness and pain from everyone. But at the same time I also see someone who loved herself enough to finally put herself first. Who took the first step in making the changes she needed to better her life. Who stood up every time she fell down. Who did not let her fear of failure stop her. Who pushed on even when others told her she couldn't do it, and never, ever, stopped moving forward, even when it was hard. The picture on the right, is that same girl, who finally decided that enough is enough. Who went against all odds and fought to take back control of her life… and is winning! Both of these girls are me, and I am proud of both pictures! I hope when you see these pictures you truly believe that no matter how deep of a hole you feel like you are in, you have the power inside of you to get yourself out!! I truly hope you believe in yourself and that you know that anything is possible! . . . . #jacquelineadan #jacquelinesjourney #fattofit #bodybuilding #bodybuildingcom #bodypositive #bodyposi #wlstories #extremeweightloss #transformationtuesday #losingweight #weightloss #weightlosssupport #weightlosscommunity #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #weightlosstransformation #weightlossbeforeandafter #trainandtransform #onaquest #fit #fitspo #tuesdaytransformation #perfectlyimperfect #fitfam #fitspiration #transformationfitnation #workoutmotivation #effyourbeautystandards

Jacqueline decidió enfrentarse a los haters. Durante sus vacaciones en México se puso un traje de baño, aun a sabiendas que oiría comentarios desagradables. “La pareja que estaba sentada junto a la piscina empezó a reírse de mí y a señalarme con los dedos. Hacían chistes sobre mi persona. ¿Qué podía hacer yo? Respiré profundamente, sonreí y entré en la piscina. Este fue un gran acontecimiento para mí. Había cambiado. Ya no era la misma chica que solía ser”, escribió en Instagram.

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

¡Eres hermosa!

La mujer argumenta que nadie debe mirarse con ojos de extraños. “No saben lo difícil que he trabajado para adelgazar estos 158 kilos. No saben lo dura que fue mi recuperación después de la cirugía. No tienen derecho a sentarse, señalarme con los dedos y reírse. Por eso sonrío yo.”

Añade: “No importa lo que digan los demás de ti. Si están tratando de desmotivarte y derribarte. Lo importante es cómo reacciones. Amarte tal como eres es muy difícil. A los demás puede que no les guste. Pero es bueno. Espero que te ames a ti mismo. Que ames tu cuerpo. Que siguas haciendo lo que quieras y sonrías.”

La imagen de la sonriente Jacqueline y su actitud impresiona a los usuarios de Internet. “Eres hermosa y fuerte. El mundo necesita este tipo de personas”, “¡Buen trabajo! Eres hermosa por fuera y por dentro”, “Te felicito por tu enfoque y coraje”, es lo que podemos leer en los comentarios de Instagram.

“Sé que no es fácil. Pero no estás solo y juntos lo vamos a lograr. ¡Nuestras diferencias nos hacen hermosas!” – resume Jacqueline.
