The winner of the Miss Great Britain 2020 title spoke about how she suffered from excess weight and shared the secrets of losing weight. Reported by The Sun.
In 2016, 26-year-old Jen Atkin worked as an airport administrator and weighed about 108 kilograms - now she weighs half as much. Thanks to her lifestyle change, she won the Miss Yorkshire competition in 2018 and became Miss Britain in 2020.
The girl said that at school she was constantly bullied because of her completeness. She was called "Jen the Fatty", which made her very complex. Now Atkin admits that her weight was indeed overweight, and gives advice to people with a similar problem.
"You should call fat what it is - an unhealthy thing that will take years of your life and limit your lifestyle."

The girl emphasized that she supports the idea of body positive, but opposes attempts to deny serious obesity. So, she herself had health problems due to excess weight that began in her teens, and she is glad that in the end she took up herself. Atkin shared the secrets of success, thanks to which she lost a lot of weight: so, at first Jen signed up for a gym and began to run and swing a little with her friend. Then she began to follow what she was buying in the supermarket. If Jen used to prefer cookies and chips, then she gradually abandoned such products and carefully monitored the calorie content of the dishes.
