See What 'Extreme Weight Loss' Star Jacqui McCoy Is Doing Today After Her Transformation

By

Fans watched as Jacquelyn McCoy overcame her mental and physical demons, shedding nearly half her body weight in a year-long transformation journey on Season 2 of the series Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition

The then 30-year-old weighed more than 350 pounds and feared that she would not be able to have children in her current state. "I was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome, knowing that because of my weight, we're unable to have a child," she said. 

In a 2016 interview with Heidi Powell (trainer Chris Powell's wife), she opened up about her decision to start losing weight. "I had accepted being unhealthy and overweight as my lot in life until I saw it might take away my greatest dream of starting my family and being a mom," she said. Therefore, she applied to be on the weight loss series and was eventually chosen.
