Lisseth and Jose were a happily married couple.
Their wedding day was the best day of their lives. They were deeply in love and enjoy each other’s company. However, a few years into their marriage, things changed, the once happy lovey dovey couple could no longer stand the sight of one another.
When Lisseth was pregnant with their daughter, she indulged in a lot of unhealthy foods together with her husband Jose. They ate all kinds of junk food you can think of. Unfortunately, they did not realize that this was going to be the cause of their failed marriage.
Little by little, Lisseth started putting on weight. By the time she gave birth to their gorgeous baby girl, her weight had tremendously increased. Her old clothes could hardly fit, she was now wearing the largest sizes when it came to clothes. Surprisingly her husband Jose who was her partner in crime in eating did not gain a single pound.
Jose started bullying and body shaming her. His once beautiful wife was now ugly to him. Often times he called Lisseth “fat.” These insensitive comments slowly made her lose her self-esteem and dwindled her confidence as well.
Her weight greatly affected their marriage and sex life.
Lisseth told Daily Mail, “I’d try to show affection in bed, but he’d turn over and go to sleep. I repulsed him and cried myself to sleep,”
Unfortunately, this only worsened the situation, due to lack of affection from her husband, she took, even more, solace in food — her only friend.
Lisseth’s husband, Jose, became relentless after she put on baby weight. The husband called the mother of his child “fat” after she went up to a size 24.During and after her pregnancy, the couple consumed unhealthy foods like a full English breakfast, McDonald’s, and desserts. Jose was lucky to never put on a pound, but Lisseth continued to gain weight.
One day she heard him call her an “elephant.”
“Jose wouldn’t show me any affection and food became even more of a friend,” she 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.”
She added, “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 told Daily Mail.
“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.”
Unknown to her, Jose was secretly having an affair with another woman.
After a couple of years of constant bullying and hearing mean comments from the love of her life, Lisseth decided to make a drastic change in her life.
It was not so long when she finally found out why her dear husband was acting the way he did – treating her like trash and constantly bullying her. Lisseth was shocked to discover that her once-devoted husband was cheating on her. She was heartbroken to learn that the man she loved dearly was having an affair with another woman. In that moment, she saw her marriage falling apart.
She revealed, “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 said.
“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.”
She was crushed when she confronted Jose and he blamed her for his promiscuous behavior.
That’s when Lisseth filed for divorce and decided to completely transform her life. When she visited a doctor, he told her gastric band surgery was her only option — she didn’t listen. She decided to completely change her lifestyle and eating habits in order to lose the weight she had gained over the years.
Surprisingly, it worked. Her weight started to drop off me slowly, Lisseth felt great and proud of her new body, she even had to go shopping for new smaller sizes of clothes because her old clothes were new baggy for her now petite body.
Even her husband Jose noticed the difference between the old and new Lisserh. When he came to pick up their daughter, he was shocked to see her new transformation.
“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, 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.” Lisseth said.
Now Jose admits he screwed up and was cruel to his ex-wife.
He told Daily Mail, “One of the reasons we split up was because she was very fat and that was the thing that made me go with another woman. I regret what I did.”
