#12 Heather Palumbo
#11 Chris Jones
Heather’s husband, Chris Jones, was a successful businessman and a loving father. For him and Heather, it truly was love at first sight! But, as Heather began to make some healthy and positive steps towards improving her life, Chris’ usually happy demeanor turned jealous, angry, and vengeful. Still, Heather kept going with what she knew was good for her!
#10 A Dramatic Transformation
After years of being fed up (pun intended) with her body and being overweight, Heather began a serious diet and exercise plan. She was thrilled with the changes she saw in her body, and the 160-pound weight loss the scale showed certainly helped her confidence! Unfortunately, someone else wasn’t quite as happy…
#9 Newfound Freedom
As Heather lost weight, her confidence soared. This led to her feeling more comfortable going out and meeting people, running in local 5k races, and socializing with those other than her coworkers. This all made Chris incredibly jealous. He feared Heather was going to leave him for a younger man. At one point, he even told her that she needed to gain all her hard-lost weight back!
