It is horrifying to know that your partner for a long time has betrayed your trust by being unfaithful.
Although having deep conversation may fix the problem, there are times when the partner becomes too much and unbearable. A woman from Northfleet, Kent took this situation as an opportunity to change her life for the better.
Lisseth Exposito, 25, started to gain weight during her first pregnancy. She and her husband, Jose, ate full English Breakfasts, fast foods, and other unhealthy meals that contribute to her mass. Jose had fast metabolism rate and didn’t gain weight, but Lisseth gained quickly.
Since then, Jose emotionally abused her by calling her “fat.” He also started to lose interest in her, leaving Lisseth disheartened and stressed.
“I’d catch Jose looking at me in disgust. As I ate my dinner on the sofa, I’d hear him mutter ‘fat girl,’ as crumbs bounced off my belly,” Lisseth said in an interview. “It started with little digs, but soon it was cruel jibes. I was desperate to be the curvaceous hourglass girl he had fallen for, but I had no willpower or self-esteem to diet.”
“Jose wouldn’t show me any affection and food became even more of a friend,” Lisseth said. “The words made my stomach flip and I hit an all-time low. Food became the only thing to give me a moment of happiness. I was eating around 4,000 calories a day.”
One day, Lisseth found his text messages to another woman. She confronted Jose, but he blamed her weight.
“I got hold of his phone and found myself scrolling through texts, and hundreds of incriminating texts littered his inbox. I felt disgusted, but something changed in me. When his key turned in the door that evening I pounced and told him what I’d found,” she shared. “He didn’t deny it and told me it was my fault as I was so fat. He told me I’d always be ugly. I was devastated, but determined. This man would never hurt me again.”
Lisseth was broken and depressed. She decided to file for a divorce and jump to the next chapter of her life. The strong woman decided to change her lifestyle and eating habits to lose weight naturally. Eventually, she lost 126 pounds!
When Jose saw Lisseth’s beautiful transformation, he tried to get back together with her.
“Every weekend, Jose would pick up Lissmar and do a double take as he looked at me. Then one Friday he told me I was looking hot,” she expressed. “I closed the door on him. I would never let him back in my life. I am a role model to my daughter and I proved him wrong.”
Isn’t she beautiful and amazing? Lisseth was brave enough to change her life and be the best version of herself! What are your thoughts on this story? Let us know in the comments section below! Please SHARE this story on Facebook to help inspire women around the world!
