The actress admitted that the criticism of her figure that erupted after being photographed in a bikini in 2007, while on vacation with her then-fiance, Scottish actor Ross McCall in Hawaii, caused problems for the actress.
"I felt like I had disappointed people," J-Love told the mag. "I questioned everything I put in my mouth after those photos."
The beautiful brunette said she donned oversize outfits following the photo incident, but finally made a decision to change everything.
"I just decided I wanted to be in a healthier place," she said.
Before that happened though, Jennifer revealed to People that she tried some unusual fitness routines.
"I've run on my treadmill in heels thinking that it would make better leg muscles," Jennifer said. "It doesn't. It just hurts your back. And I've gotten on the treadmill with a scoop of ice cream. I was like 'At least I'm working out.'"
