26-year-old Jen Atkin was engaged to a guy back in 2015, until he dumped her when she gained weight. She says she got up to 238 pounds, mostly from bad eating habits.
So after that, she decided to get in shape . . . joined a gym . . . and lost 112 POUNDS. But that's not the end of it.
She also started entering beauty pageants. And a few days ago, she was crowned the new MISS GREAT BRITAIN . . . which is the U.K. equivalent of the Miss America pageant.
She also won best personality, and says that was kind of her secret weapon. Quote, "Although my body has changed so much, I don't think my personality has. And I think that's really helped me."
She's also been dating someone new, and says getting dumped ended up being the best thing that ever happened to her.
