A man was divorced by his wife after he followed a strict weight loss regime and lost weight.
The couple, who weighed nearly 136kg each, had mutually agreed to follow a good diet plan to live a healthy life.
"We were both approaching 300lbs (136kg). As a couple we could barely walk the few steps from our car to our office," the husband explained on Reddit, according to a report in the Mirror.
"We didn't vacation, we didn't go for walks, we didn't do anything but stare at our phones when we went out to eat."
"We ate takeout three meals a day and were pretty miserable."
They decided to make some important changes and the husband began to strictly follow the regime.
"I just walked, downloaded a calorie counting app and made sure I never exceeded my daily calorie limit," he explained.
"Well slowly but surely, my weight started to come off."
Amid this, his wife struggled.
"My wife, on the other hand, quit her gym and trainer after about a week."
"I lost about 10lbs (4.5kg) a month and after four months, it really began to show. It was at this point that she became intensely hostile towards me."
"She started making me sleep in the guest bed (she claimed it was because of my snoring). We communicated through email and texts and even those were hostile."
He added that his wife started posting things on Facebook about "losing the genetic lottery" when it came to weight.
"A favourite quote that became her Facebook backdrop was "change your world, not your body".
"When she was home she watched Netflix in her living room and we'd only talk to make Uber Eats plans."
"She said: 'I'm sorry to do this to you, but I am deeply unattracted to both your new body and your new attitude.
"I never thought you would remind me of my bullies but that's exactly what you've become. I'm contacting a divorce lawyer on Monday morning," she wrote in a message to her husband.
The husband, however, hopes to win her wife back.
