Weight gain is often the result of a person’s lifestyle and environment rather than their own fault. This was the case for Brianne Dias, who turned to food after experiencing psychological and emotional trauma as a child. Brianne said her early years passed like any normal child, but when her siblings came into the world, she felt ignored by her family.
Her father, who was a member of the Air Force, could not tolerate his daughter weighing and began to impose rules and regulations on Brianne Dias, which affected her psychologically and emotionally. To escape reality, Brianne Dias turned to food. Thus began Brianne’s downward spiral towards weight gain.
Brianne Dias’s weight problems further aggravated her relationship with her father. By the time she was a teenager, Brianne weighed over one hundred and eighty pounds. Her father, furious, denied Brianne access to the fridge. A teenager who isn’t given food is likely to rebel, as Brianne did. At the age of 18, she started partying and drinking to fight her father, which added to her weight problems. Brianne also struggled with sexual abuse at the time and turned to food for comfort.
Brianne Dias thought she had found happiness when she fell in love with and married her husband Rick, but soon discovered that her weight was causing problems in their marriage. What’s more, when she weighed 450 pounds at the age of 20, her weight increased uncontrollably.
It was a difficult time for Brianne Dias when she visited Dr. Now’s office and asked for his help. By this time, her weight had already passed the 700-pound mark and her father had cut all ties with her. Dr. Now warned her that if she didn’t control her weight immediately, she could be bedridden for life.
Brianne Dias took up the challenge and completed her programme, eventually emerging victorious. Initially, Brianne Dias was apprehensive that she would have to drastically change her habits and exercise routine, but she stuck to her routine and took it upon herself to overcome her obstacles with her never back down attitude.
At the end of the episode, viewers learned about Brianne’s resilience and hard work when the scale revealed that she had lost 382 pounds during her time under Dr. Now’s guidance. She was given the green light for surgery and Brianne’s future looked bright.

Sometimes our biggest demons are not the most obvious. Brianne Dias managed to overcome her weight problems and has lived a healthy life since this episode. Gone is the fear of being bedridden and unable to move properly.
Brianne Dias has transformed herself almost beyond recognition and turned her life around. Yet weight wasn’t her biggest enemy. While she was away being treated by Dr. Now, it was alleged that her husband cheated on Brianne with an old friend. It has been reported that Brianne’s husband was seen with Jamie Moon in Florence, Oregon while Brianne was away in Houston, Texas. Brianne, who was deeply in love with her husband, was devastated by this development.
She claimed that Rick had broken her heart, but vowed not to let the situation bring her down. Starcasm reported that a source explained how the woman Rick was seen with was considered a “Demon Woman” who had been kicked out of three churches and also had several restraining orders against her.
Cheating on her husband was not the only hook for this brave woman. Brianne Dias, who always wanted to be a mother, found out she was pregnant after returning from Houston. Overjoyed, she wanted to share the news with her husband Rick. But fortunately, Brianne had to go through the terrible ordeal of terminating her pregnancy. Life was about to throw Brianne Dias more curveballs. Soon after the pregnancy, various sources claimed that Jamie Moon had apparently accused Brianne of cheating. Sources said Moon allegedly accused Brianne of cheating on her husband while he was away in Houston working on his weight. While the allegation has never been proven, there is also no confirmation that Jamie Moon was the one who made the accusation against Brianne.
