Pamela Doyle, like so many of us, fell in love with a high school sweetheart and looked forward to the day when they would tie the knot. The wedding was all set, but it didn’t go to plan. Her groom left her at the altar. His reasoning? She was “too fat” for him. This shocking event inspired Doyle to make some changes in her life.
Pamela Doyle always struggled with her weight, but she believed she’d found a man who thought she was beautiful both inside and out.
She met her boyfriend during high school and together they planned a dream wedding in Glasgow, Scotland.
Unfortunately, what was meant to be a perfect day ended in disaster. Doyle’s groom jilted her at the altar.
Why did he do this? Well, apparently he said he was tired of her “weight issues”, claiming that she was just too fat for him to marry.
The news was a huge blow to Doyle, but it motivated her to make a change.
“He ended the relationship because of my weight and the issues surrounding it,” she said. “It was making him miserable. I was devastated, but it was just the thing I needed to spur me on to lose weight.”
At the time, Doyle weighed in at 238 pounds. She became so self-conscious of her image that she barely left the house.
“I even did my shopping online because I couldn’t face people. Now I feel amazing,” she said. “I have regained my confidence and I don’t think my ex could quite believe his eyes when he saw me.”
“My weight made me feel very depressed,” Doyle said. “I was moody and when my boyfriend came back I would hide myself away and not come out of the bedroom. He kept on at me about eating healthily and he tried to help me but I was difficult to be with.”
Like so many people with weight issues, Doyle managed to find comfort in food that was bad for her. Whether it was fast food or processed snacks, food was the only thing that made her happy.
Fortunately, she made the necessary changes to her diet and lifestyle, and now weighs in at 147 pounds.
Apparently, Doyle’s ex has seen how she looks and has since come crawling back.
Interestingly, she says that she doesn’t hold a grudge against him for doing what he did, and she might even get back together with him!
