The TV host has battled weight gain ever since going under multiple fertility treatments, before getting pregnant in 2014. Ada has been body shamed on several occasions on social media.

"You try not to pay attention to the comments," the 44-year-old cancer survivor told Suelta la Sopa. "I’m not saying they don't affect you. But the way I see it, I always try to find the positive side, and that’s in general, in life. Sometimes I just think that people reflect how they are feeling when they talk, and that’s what they express. If they are going through good times, they make nice comments, if they are going through tough times, then they are just reflecting how they feel."

She vowed to lose weight and is accomplishing her goal. 22

In February 2018, Ada made the commitment to lose weight. She promised publicly that she would go to the gym on a daily basis, which she admitted to not having done since she gave birth to Alaïa almost three years ago. "I’m aware that I would like to lose weight for my health, but not to satisfy the people who think I should lose weight."

Girl, you look fabulous!
