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.”
Two weeks ago Jameson posted another side-by-side comparison of herself wearing a size 6 jeans on the right and a size 16 jeans on the left. In the caption she explained that a combination of Keto and intermittent fasting has been successful for her weight loss.
It’s time for another #tuesdaytransformation . Guys, I fit into size 6 jeans! ? the picture on the right I’m wearing size 16 jeans ? the fit of my clothes is catapulting me forward now, not the scale so much. Oh, and can we talk about “muffin top” it’s gone! I feel like keto paired with #intermittentfasting has been my riddle solver! I’ve officially weaned off my poison sugar free creamer and am now drinking black coffee with stevia and coconut oil! ? on a side note I want to acknowledge all of you taking the leap with me to get healthier, I’m SO damn proud of you!!!! Love you guys so much! #transformationtuesday #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #keto #ketodiet #ketoweightloss
