Woman ‘too fat to date’ has last laugh at ex

A woman who received cruel comments about her weight has revealed her ex had a change of heart after her recent transformation.

Scrolling through her DMs, Sophie Patel’s inbox is bulging with messages from guys wanting to date her.

It’s a stark contrast to two years ago, when the messages she got were downright nasty.

At the time, the 29-year-old British woman was a size 16 and who weighed almost 90kg.

She ate takeaways and fizzy drinks most days and didn’t exercise.

But cruel comments from men online telling her to “get down the gym” – coupled with a worrying reality check from her doctor – inspired her to make a change.

Two years on she is a size 8 and now weighs 55kg.

“I’d always been a bigger girl. But it was only when I started to receive negative comments and messages on social media from men telling me to lose weight that I decided to do something about it,” the receptionist told The Sun.

“Now I look and feel amazing.”

Out of control

Growing up, Sophie said she struggled with her weight – but it didn’t affect her until she hit her twenties.

“While I was always bigger than other girls, it never really bothered me. But when I was 23, my eating was out of control.

“I would binge on McDonald’s, KFC or Burger King every day for dinner, along with four full-fat bottles of Coke a day, cakes and doughnuts.

“I got to the point where I didn’t care about my health anymore. I did no exercise and ate fast food all day long.”

By the time Sophie was 27, she was a size 16 and weighed 89.8kg.

In February 2020, Sophie was diagnosed with anaemia and had to undergo infusions where iron was injected into her body.

“I was constantly tired and weak. I was extremely unwell,” she said.

“When I started to feel better, I went to the doctor for a check-up and he warned me that I had a high risk of diabetes if I kept on putting on weight.”

Vile trolls

For a while Sophie didn’t take any notice. It was only after receiving cruel comments on her pictures and messages about her weight that she decided to take action.

“I looked in the mirror and hated the girl staring back at me,” she said.

“Whenever I went out with my friends or spoke to men, I felt so self-conscious and would always cover myself up.

“The negative comments that I started receiving were horrible and really made me second guess myself. I had to do something about my weight.

“One comment said, ‘Get to the gym’, while another said, ‘Wow, you’ve put some weight on.’ It wasn’t nice to read.”

‘Addicted’

In August 2020, Sophie decided to overhaul her unhealthy habits and embrace fitness.

Every day, she cooked healthy meals and adopted a calorie deficit diet.

She also began working out and often took walks in her lunch break at work.

“I started to follow healthy recipes online and every day, I’d either do a brisk walk, jog, or do a HIIT workout,” she said.

“At first I didn’t believe that I’d be able to do it. But then a switch flicked in me.”

After working out and eating healthier, Sophie noticed both her physical and mental health were feeling the benefits.

“I found it so relaxing,” she said. “When I started seeing the results, I felt so proud that I’d stuck with it.”

After a year of hard work, Sophie had lost 38kg.

Now that she has lost her weight, she does strength training multiple times a week to build muscle.

“I now restrict myself to 1600 calories per day and increase this when I work out,” she said.

“But if I want to have a treat, I allow myself to. When I go out, I make much healthier choices than I used to because I now have the knowledge to do so.”

Dozens of DMs

Since losing weight, Sophie said she receives a very different kind of attention online from men and gets asked out on multiple dates every week.

“Now that I’m smaller, even my exes have got back in contact with me saying that I look amazing, which has definitely boosted my ego,” she said.

But for Sophie, her weight-loss journey was about feeling confident in her own skin.

“Before I would cover my body up whenever I got the chance to. Now, I embrace it by wearing short dresses and crop tops.

“When I look at myself in the mirror, I’m so happy.

“Two years ago, when I first started my journey, I’d never have believed that I’d get to where I am today.

“I’m so much more confident and healthy than I was before. I’m a completely different person now.”
