As I type this, there is a man in Great Britain sitting in a dark room, staring at a wall, obsessing over what could have been and where it all went wrong.
I don’t wish this torture on my worst enemy. Regret is the hottest of hells.
The only thing hotter is the woman this man dumped, adding an extra jab from Satan’s trident.
Jen Atkin was dumped by her fiancé for being “too fat” after the 26-year-old office administrator climbed to 247 pounds no thanks to a garbage diet and sedentary lifestyle.
According to the New York Post, Atkin met her ex in March 2011 when she weight 203 pounds and admitted to become “a weekend recluse” who consistently spent $26 a meal on takeout.
This is Jen 28 pounds lighter than her heaviest.
“In the week, I would eat huge portions of pasta or pizza then a family-size chocolate bar.
“At weekends, we’d turn into virtual recluses sitting on the sofa in our pajamas eating takeaways – spending $26 each time.”
In 2015, when she weighed nearly 240 pounds, her betrothed decided to hitch his horse to a slimmer wagon, leaving her equal parts devastated and motivated.
“The day he left I thought my world had ended – I cried for weeks and used food as my comfort.”
Fast forward to today, and Atkin’s is down 112 pounds and was recently crowned Miss Great Britain.
“When we broke up, I was devastated but it ended up being the best thing that’s happened to me.”
That’s can’t be good to hear for the Man In The Dark Room.
Really not ideal.
It gets worse for The Man In The Dark Room. Jen has moved on and is now married to a man who is not him.
Life comes at you fast.
