‘You look smoking hot!🔥🔥,’ said one. ‘So happy for you! 😊’
Added another: ‘Looking fit Jelena, been watching your progress. Well done 👏🏼!’
Said a third: ‘Gosh! What progress! How much weight are you down already?’ Another commented: ‘Is that an old photo or recent...wow.’
Sharing her inspiring weight loss journey on Instagram, Jelena said: 'Today is my tomorrow. It's up to me to shape it, to take control and seize every opportunity,' she revealed in one of her posts.
'The power is in the choices I make each day. I eat well, I train, I live well. I shape me. It comes down to one simple thing: How bad do you want it?
'Because I want it really bad and I will get it.'
Earlier this months she admitted that her weight had spiked at 120kg - 54kg more than her playing weight of 66kg.
'I was thrown into retirement not knowing what direction I wanted to go in,' she told the Herald Sun of her battle with emotional eating.
