Woman Loses 112 Lbs. And Wins Beauty Pageant After Boyfriend Dumps Her

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Jennifer Atkin is in the news after revealing her motivation for the massive weight loss that led to her being crowned “Britain’s Most Beautiful Woman.” A break-up pushed her to make the major life change, and over two years, she shed 112 pounds. She went from a size 22 to a size 10.

Then, she entered the beauty pageant, and won, saying the break-up ended up being the best thing that ever happened to her. Her ex dumped her because of the weight she gained while they dated, but as she explained in an interview this week, she says she had an unhealthy relationship with food well before him.

So our question of the night: what’s the most drastic thing you’ve done to get over an ex?
