According to the Daily Mail, she wrote an essay featured on Extreme Weight Loss trainer Heidi Powell's website. She said: "I was mortified! Once I got out, I laughed it off, but at that moment, I had never felt so much guilt, shame, and embarrassment, and I couldn't believe that I had allowed myself to get that big."

She also recalls how she had to be pushed around the theme park in a wheelchair as she couldn't walk all the way round.

Jacqueline said she had always been overweight, writing: "It seemed like no matter what I did, I could never stick to any "diet" plan and would end up gaining the weight back, plus some, or I would just quit when it got too hard and would turn to food again."

One the blog, Jacqueline explains: "In February 2012, a few days after my 25th birthday, I remember waking up one morning and deciding I needed to change — I wanted to change. I decided to call Jenny Craig, not knowing how much that one phone call would change my whole life!"

Jacqueline has documented her progress on her Instagram page.







Within the first year she had lost 100lbs. At the end of 2013, she had lost 200lbs, and another trip to Disneyland, in which her boyfriend Kevin proposed, kept her spirits up.

In 2015, she started a boot camp, attending four to five times a week.

She wrote: "Currently I have lost around 350 pounds, I am still going to boot camp 4-5 times per week, and I am still eating Jenny Craig food. My weight has stabilised for about the last 6 months; however, I am still seeing drastic changes in my body.

"The only problem I am now facing that I have lost the weight is all of the extra skin. I am trying to be okay with it, but mentally, it still causes me a lot of issues. Physically, it is causing me headaches, severe neck and back pain, and rashes/irritation. On top of all of the medical issues the extra skin is causing me, I am still in the process of fighting my insurance company to cover the costs of surgery because they are deeming it cosmetic. I'm trying not to let this stress me out too much and keep my mind and body positive and calm, especially since I'm still recovering from my first skin removal surgery I had on 28 July."

At the end of the blog, she quotes Disney, and writes: "Anything is possible, you just have to have a little faith, trust, and a little pixie dust."
