This Girl took best revenge on her boyfriend who wanted her to be fat
We know that women are very weight conscious and anything said or commented on their bodies usually is taken pretty personally by them. This can cause serious issues of self-esteem amongst younger kids, both male and female. But for females, it is very difficult to come back from that spiral and become fit again.
One such woman wanted to change herself and become better looking and get healthy. She needed all the support that she could get and while her family was with her, her boyfriend declined to support her and even went on to discourage her efforts to get better.
Here is how she got one of the best possible revenges on her boyfriend. Read the whole story.
1 The woman
28-year-old Christine Carter weighed 275 pounds at her heaviest and was continuously eating in order to deal with her feelings. Christine, who is known for her glamorous Instagram profile, was once in a relationship which took a heavy toll on her health and in order to go away from all the abuse, she started finding solace in food and that caused her weight to balloon to enormous proportions. She slowly started eating and within very little time, her weight was more than 275 pounds.
She says, “Being overweight, I didn’t feel I deserved anything better – I went from a place of being ‘fat and happy’ to just ‘fat’. It was taking a major toll on my body and instead of dealing with my feelings I was eating them.”
2 The boyfriend
Her boyfriend, now her ex, wanted her to stay fat so that she could not leave him and did whatever he asked her to do. Christine’s eating binges used to cost her $2,000 dollars every month. The boyfriend was abusive and any efforts made by Christine to lose any weight were brutally knocked down by her boyfriend who kept her self-esteem at the lowest. She told a news weekly, “My ex was very controlling, told me what to wear and I believe he wanted me to be fat so that I wouldn’t leave him.”
The breaking point came for Christine when she attended a family reunion and most of her family members, especially her uncle couldn’t recognize her.
3 The revenge
Against the wishes of her controlling boyfriend, Christine started the transformation in 2014, by undergoing a gastric sleeve surgery, knocking 50 pounds off her weight. She then hired a personal trainer and got to work, exercising daily and doing the hard work, which resulted in shedding another 100 pounds.
From being on tens of medications for different ailments in 2014, Christine went on to lose a total of 150 pounds of weight. She had to undergo another surgery to remove the excess skin and also having got breasts implants, Christine proudly flaunted her new look in late 2015. She also shared her transformation story with her 26,000 followers on Instagram.
Christine, who hails from Dallas, Texas, USA, said: “I had a few triggers for my weight gain – I quit smoking and transferred my addition from nicotine to eating.” She added that the other factor was that she was in an unhappy relationship. Her boyfriend was very controlling and wanted her to be fat so that she couldn’t leave him. He didn’t even want her to be with her friends.
4 The reaction
Her weight loss also lost her something more. She ditched her jealous boyfriend after he became severely insecure and started berating her for getting in shape. She said that it all ended her relationship as her ex became very insecure and jealous and then she gained the confidence to see that she was not in a healthy relationship and just needed to get out of it. The whole thing also helped her progress in her career. She says, “Opportunities present themselves to me daily that I would not have if I was overweight.”
She says that she cannot recognize herself in her old photos and said that apart from her physical health, she needed to get help for her emotional health as well. She said that though her entire struggle was very hard, she basically began to love the struggle and the harder her boyfriend tried to dissuade her from her goal, the firmer her focus became and the result is for all to see.
