5. Something Was Always Missing
Jennifer always felt like there was something missing from her relationship with Tom. Anyone who’s experienced troubled times with a partner knows that the stress seems to seep into your bones.
It’s no surprise that she was stressed and turning to food for comfort—who hasn’t done that?
4. Even Though He Enjoyed Junk Food, Too
Jennifer later realized that she wouldn’t have been so careless with her weight if her fiancé had seen the light. She explained that he also enjoyed junk food and made it a frequent part of their meal plans.
(Strange that he ended up calling off their engagement, considering that irony.)
3. No Longer Tipping Scales
Jennifer now weighs in at a sweet 130 pounds and says that she feels “extremely beautiful” thanks to all of the changes she’s made.
She even entered a beauty contest in her hometown—she didn’t win this year, but the fact that she even competed is far beyond the dreams she once had!
2. What Happened Next…
While she used to make attempts to hide her weight, she now opts for an entirely different wardrobe. Over her clothes, she carries a newfound confidence.
Something really strange ended up happening, though. Cute, driven girls don’t tend to stay single for long if they don’t want to…
1. She Started Dating His Cousin
Seven months after her engagement ended, Jennifer started dating Tom’s cousin Chris. The two were married soon after, giving Jennifer a happy ending that she’d never imagined possible!
Her story continues to inspire plenty of women who need a reminder that their dreams are definitely within reach.
Sometimes, things just have to get worse before they get better.
