Janelle Brown admits you may not know it by looking at her.
But she also admits the following:
This Sister Wives star has never felt better about her body, her strength and her weight loss journey in general.
Earlier this month, Brown celebrated July 4 by donning the same red, white and blue outfit she wore on the previous holiday.
“Everyone looks different to lose weight,” wrote Janelle with these side-by-side photos of her from July 4, 2021 and 2022.
She posted them to Instagram last Friday, adding:
“I’m always hesitant to share my progress publicly because let’s face it, everything I share, there are always 10,000 people willing to judge me.”
It’s also worth noting that Janelle celebrated America’s birthday without Kody Brown by her side, fueling the rumor that the two are barely in a relationship right now.
But that is not the focus of this article.
“I suspect you have people in your world who are like that,” the mother of six wrote of her critics.
“But in the past year, not only have I increased my strength (I almost hit a 200-pound barbell squat you guys!) but I’ve lost pounds and inches in my own unique way.”
The 53-year-old continued:
“I never thought I would feel as good as I did when I was 18 and finally felt like I was on my way to my ultimate health goals.
“This is not an overnight solution. Nothing is really worth it.
“These shorts I’ve been wearing for 2 years are almost too big to even keep on! I couldn’t be more excited about my progress.”
Of course it’s great when Janelle feels that way.
But she concluded her message like this:
Happy to chat if you’re looking for progress instead of perfection! More also at @life_with_health_and_happiness.
That tag takes you to the Instagram account of the dubious weight loss company for which Janelle and Christine Brown work as salespeople.
Janelle has always linked it to comments she makes about her own figure, which often makes us wonder if she just got caught up in a pyramid scheme here.
On New Years Eve 2022, Janelle shared a photo with ex-sister wife Christine, when she wrote:
“Health isn’t a one-size-fits-all thing, and it may not look the same to everyone, but it’s worth fighting for.
“Change comes first with the decision to try it. Trying comes with the decision to continue.
“Continuing comes with the decision to be committed. I wanted and needed something, but I didn’t know what.”
