A British woman lost over 100 pounds and won a beauty pageant after being dumped by her fiance for being “too fat.”
Jen Atkin was devastated after her fiance left her when she ballooned up to 247pounds. “In the week, I would eat huge portions of pasta or pizza then a family-size chocolate bar,” said the 26-year-old.
After the couple broke up, Jen joined a gym and dropped over 100 pounds in two years. She had participated in the Miss Great Britain beauty pageant twice before in 2017, she made it to the semi-finals and in 2018 she made the finals.
She tried a final time and won. Atkin has since married and says her win “…felt absolutely incredible, I’m over the moon.”
