Bio: 27, a Google consultant and floral designer from San Jose. She is single. Height and weight: 5-foot-6 and 248 pounds.
Being overweight is just not acceptable within Asian culture, Ada says. So she turned to every diet she could find: At one point, she lost 50 pounds on Atkins, lost 70 pounds on the Lemonade Diet -- but always ended up gaining it all back. She said she feels shunned and rejected by her family for her weight. She said she is highly motivated in her professional life -- she is a consultant for Google and owns her own floral business. "But weight has been one of those areas that I can't get control of." (One of the perks of working for Google is an endless supply of free food -- and Ada said she gained 60 pounds as a result.)
