Claire and Stephen are lovers from the United Kingdom who share the same dilemma—losing weight. You can’t blame them. We are all aware of how modern society gives importance to having the perfect figure. We live in an era where people who are slim are praiseworthy while those who are overweight are bullied.
Because of their size,the couple deemed themselves as physically unattractive. In Claire’s case, she couldn’t have cared less about what strangers say, but when a relative started making rude comments about her physique, she told herself it’s time to do something.
Discontented with her 200-pound belly, Claire refused to marry Stephen until she’s able to prove something. “I was a comfort eater. My health was in jeopardy, and I was a bad role model for my daughter Molly,” she said.
