Woman Who Was Fat-Shamed By Her Husband, Loses Weight And Then Dumps Him

A woman who was fat-shamed by her husband after a cruel jibe had the last laugh when she lost almost half her body-weight.

Kennel supervisor Hayley Bienert, 27, from Irvine, California, USA described herself as always being a ‘little bit chubby’ after growing up without a father figure in her life and being in a toxic relationship with her husband who constantly put her down, Mirror reports.

She says this cycle caused her to binge eat and saw her reach 16st 3lbs and a UK size 18-20.

Before her dramatic weight loss , Hayley would eat a foot-long Subway, bag of crisps and four cookies for lunch which would be washed down with a coke.

Fast forward three years and Hayley has swapped junk food and sugar for meals packed with lean turkey, chicken, fish and vegetables. She is now a super fit 10st 5lbs and a UK size 8-10.

She also got rid of him.

“Growing up with a father who would rather play video games than help his daughter build a birdhouse can cause issues later on in life,” said Hayley.

“I do know that it was an accumulation of the way I grew up and the toxic relationship I put myself in with my ex-husband. I have always been a little bit chubby, and when my ex and I got married we partied a lot and ate horribly.

“I had gained more weight and he didn’t like it. One night he had been drinking and he told me in so many words that I was fat and he wasn’t attracted to me anymore.

“When I heard that, it was like a switch had gone off in my brain, I never saw my body the same way after that. I felt inferior, I felt ugly and I felt unworthy. So I ate. I binge ate until I ballooned to more than sixteen-stone.

“After I had grown the mental strength to leave my ex, I realised that I needed to change something in my life.

“I couldn’t change my overall current situation, but I knew I had total control over my body and my health.

“For so long, I had felt as though I didn’t have an identity, that my body fat percentage was my identity, that that is all people ever saw, including my ex.

“So I cut my hair, dyed it red and purchased the a beach body workout programme and in three months I lost more than three-stone.”

Before losing weight, Hayley never exercised but now she hits the gym between five to six times a week. Despite her new healthy regime, she still allows herself an occasional treat of ice cream or diet coke.
