Good News: San Jose's Jeannie Mai Talks 17-Pound Weight Gain!

As a woman, I'm OBSESSED with weight loss before-and-after stories. I look at transformational photos on Instagram all the time. I follow women who have lost lots of weight, and I fantasize about my OWN transformation. Yet, this weekend I found myself reading Jeannie Mai's recent post about her 17 pound weight gain and how she couldn't be HAPPIER. She said online, 

"On the left is the first time I tried on this dress, at a weight I've kept for 12 years, 103 lbs. Staying 103 came from my self control to lose "chubby" teenage weight and a stressful idea that my body was built to look best "thin". As I'm nearing my 40s, I realize that I've been thru so much shit mentally and emotionally, why the hell should my body be forced to suffer (from my over controlling ways) too? So 3 months ago I started a new eating plan and training program and gained 17 lbs. I don't have a weight goal..just a promise to be as physically Strong as I am mentally Indestructable . So far I'm 3 months of eating more, (clean protein and saying Yes to carbs!!), lifting heavy weights (best therapy ever!!) and truly loving all of Me." 

I was so proud and happy for her!! First, she looks phenomenal. But what I loved most was how she truly looks like she's embracing HERSELF as a woman. A woman with curves. A woman who is owning herself and the body she's in. And a woman who's TIRED of obsessing about her body. Read her entire post below....congratulations Jeannie! Kudos (and carbs!) to you!!

Love,

Not sure where I'm headed but I know I'm gonna look the best I've ever looked because Im spending quality time on ME. Here's to Mai first #transformationTuesday. What tips you want me to share in my journey? Cuz I'm def learning now that a figure with curves offers interesting angles 🖤 #summerbodyhereIcome #leanmuscle #StrongisthenewSexy
