Sexually Abusive Childhood and Food Binges

Weighing 605 pounds then, Brittani revealed her spiral into a life of morbid obesity after being abused by a family member when she was five years old.
The abuse continued for six years, and Brittani sought refuge in binging on food. She was overweight her entire life, and at the time of her high school graduation, she weighed 400 pounds.
Brittani feared that she would be alone all her life, But when she met Bill, her husband, he told her that he liked big women.

Appearance on My 600-lb Life
Fearing her weight would affect her life and marriage, Brittani appeared on the show where Dr. Now and therapists gave her help and advice.
“My husband doesn’t see my undress most of the time [sic],” Brittani said. “I don’t walk around naked because I am afraid that he will be absolutely disgusted if he sees me and that he will never look at me the same way again. So, I hide and do nothing all day.”
Brittani also confessed to thinking of food all day long and said, “I think about food nonstop from the moment I wake up until the moment I go to bed. I know that’s not normal, but I can’t remember a time when food wasn’t the most important thing to me.”
Even a simple task like showering was the “most exhausting” part of Brittani’s day. She feared that she wouldn’t be able to ever have kids with her husband.
