After watching her grow up on 19 Kids & Counting, it's hard to believe that Joy-Anna Duggar has finally reached adulthood and is actually planning to marry Austin Forsyth. But lately, fans have been worried about something else: her weight. Joy-Anna looks slimmed down in a new photo, and this has provoked a lot of controversy.


Over the weekend, the Duggars shared a new photo of their daughter on their official Facebook. At a glance, it's a seemingly harmless pic of Joy-Anna posing with Josie (who's so big already!) as they celebrate "sister time" together.
