At 26 years old, Jennifer Ginley of Liverpool in the U.K. felt completely defeated. She weighed 270 pounds, but more importantly, she wasn’t happy with herself.
Luke, her boyfriend of 11 years, loved her inside and out. He desperately wanted to propose to Jennifer, and she knew it — but she made a vow to not get engaged until she lost weight.
It wasn’t that she didn’t want to marry Luke; she didn’t want to be an “overweight bride.” The dress shopping, the photographs… it all seemed too overwhelming and emotionally scarring.
Then came a family vacation to Disney World, where Jennifer couldn’t fit into some of the seats. Strangers watched her struggling to fit on rides, only to be turned away.
Humiliated beyond belief, Jennifer had had enough. She signed up for a weight-loss program and was determined to transform herself once and for all.
She made dietary changes, drank more water, documented her progress and kept herself accountable. Meanwhile, Luke already had her dream engagement ring ready and waiting. All he needed was for her to give him the A-OK.
In the video below, you’ll see what Jennifer looks like just over a year after she started her new journey. You won’t believe what she looks like now.
