Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson has had an amazing transformation over the years from her changing looks to her weight loss. Here are some amazing before and after pictures.
Little Mix started off their career as one of the quirkiest girl bands we’ve ever seen and Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock are far from their X Factor audition days today.
With all the leopard print, geek glasses, neon colours and suspenders being left in a simpler time, the LM5 girls have all had their own individual glow-ups as we’ve watched them mould more into themselves over the past few years.
In a heartfelt post, she penned: "6 months ago this girl was someone I just wanted to forget. I wanted to erase her from my mind and everyone else’s memory."
"I didn’t see her as Jesy I saw her as 'the fat one from Little Mix'. Up until now I hated her not because she’d ever done anything bad but because I was made to hate her by endless amounts of trolling."
"Since filming my documentary for @bbcone and @bbcthree I’ve learned so much more than I ever expected to. Thanks to all the inspirational people I’ve met on this emotional journey, I now love the girl in this photo."
"I’ve made this documentary for 2011 Jesy and for anyone who might be feeling like she did. I refused to speak about how I was feeling for so long. I was embarrassed and scared to. But I was so wrong to feel that way. Please if you are feeling how I did, SPEAK ABOUT IT. Talk to your family, speak to your friends, there’s always help out there."
"If you’d have told that girl one day you won’t feel sad anymore, I’d never have believed you....and here I am. Now when I look in the mirror, I don’t see Jesy the fat one, I see Jesy the happy one!”
27-year-old Jesy has since embraced her body confidence on another level and we are so here for body positivity!
She often shares stunning pictures on Instagram, where she proudly flaunts her abs and toned body - and we don’t blame her one bit!
Her most recent isolation looks have definitely had people scrolling through her Instagram page and double-tapping on each snap they come across.
Jesy is absolutely killing the game and has been a massive inspiration to girls who have fallen victim to online abuse.
The 'Holiday' singer is never afraid to switch it up, and most recently rocked a platinum blonde wig whilst stepping out with the band to chat at Capital FM.
Jesy loves to try out wigs in true Kylie Jenner style, and pairing it with her trademark baggy jeans and top to show off her enviable abs, we're buzzing to have the girls back with us!
