Jenna Jameson talks realities of body image and drugs: ‘I was worried I couldn’t lose the weight sober’

When Jenna Jameson gave birth to daughter Batel Lu April 2017, the former adult actress found herself at her highest weight and without her standby weightless tool: drugs. She was afraid she would be unable to loss weight with her new sober life, but was determined to do it in a healthy way for herself and her family. In a new Instagram post 44-year-old mom of three shares some of the anxieties and realities of her body image journey over the past year.

“Let’s talk about the mental aspect of losing weight and getting healthy. I’m going to be honest with you, when I was heavy I hated leaving the house. I felt judged,” she revealed. “I felt eyes on me everywhere. I could hear others internal monologue saying “damn, Jenna Jameson let herself go” ugh.”

“I was worried I couldn’t lose the weight Sober,” she further explained in the confessional caption. “I’m being real with you. When I was in my addiction it was easy to stay thin. Sobriety and being overweight was new to me. I kept telling myself if I could beat addiction and stay sober, I can easily lose the weight… and I did. The healthy way. And as of today I can say my mental game is STRONG. I feel I can do anything, I conquered abuse, addiction, PTSD and depression.”
