An obese woman loses 130 lbs — and gets revenge on her ex-husband
Lisseth Expósito is originally from Venezuela but now lives in Kent, England. At the age of 15 she started dating José, a 19-year-old Venezuelan-born man. Everything was going well for the two teenagers and after three years of dating they decided to get married. Lisseth, only 19 at the time, was pregnant with her first child. But the fetus was not the only thing that made her belly grow.
The couple had a bad habit of eating junk food, almost daily. But while José's weight stayed the same, Lisseth became increasingly overweight. During the pregnancy she would eat a full English breakfast followed by cakes, pasta, and McDonald’s burgers every day. She soon weighed over 300 pounds.
While she was pregnant, her husband appeared supportive and assured her that she would lose weight after she gave birth. However, after giving birth to their first child, her weight stayed the same. "I kept eating for two people," she confesses. "I was only thinking about the next meal."
Lisseth thought that her husband’s love for her would overshadow any feelings about her weight, but unfortunately she was wrong. "We spent every moment together and every night before we went to sleep he kissed my cheek and whispered that he loved me. I felt like the luckiest girl in the world,” Lisseth recalled nostalgically. “But when I got fat, José looked 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."
And the insults did not stop there. One night Lisseth was shocked when she heard him call her 'elephant.' Little by little they grew apart: "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." In those difficult times, Lisseth consoled herself by eating more and more. And José consoled himself in the arms of another woman.
When she discovered that her husband was cheating on her, she couldn't stand it anymore. She found out when she saw messages on his mobile phone. They were soon divorced and Lisseth wanted to regain control of her life by getting thinner. It was a long, slow process, but with a lot of effort and determination she managed to lose over 130 pounds! "I lost weight for me. I dumped my junk food diet and my rubbish husband."
The couple's daughter stayed with her father on weekends. Every Friday José would pick her up and when Lisseth began to lose weight, he started staring in amazement at the transformation his ex-wife was going through. One day José told her something she had not heard since their early days together: "You're hot,” he said. She laughed and closed the door on him.
