Weight gain is often a consequence of one’s lifestyle and surroundings rather than a fault. This was the case for Brianne Dias, who turned to food when she faced psychological and emotional trauma in her childhood.
Brianne Dias said her early years were spent like any other child, but once her siblings came into the world, she felt like her family ignored her. Her father, a member of the Air Force, couldn’t handle his daughter gaining weight and began imposing rules and regulations on Brianne, which affected her psychologically and emotionally. To escape from reality, Brianne turned to food. Thus, Brianne’s downward spiral into weight gain began.
Brianne Dias’s weight issues further deteriorated her relationship with her father. When she was a teenager, Brianne weighed over one hundred and eighty pounds. Her father, enraged by this, cut off Brianne’s access to the refrigerator. A teenager who is denied food is likely to rebel, as Brianne did. At 18, she began partying and drinking to get back at her father and, in turn, further increased her weight issues. Brianne also struggled with sexual abuse during this time and turned to food for comfort.
Brianne Dias thought she had found happiness when she fell in love and married her husband Rick, but soon discovered that her weight was causing problems in their married life. Also, after weighing 450 pounds at the age of 20, her weight continued to increase unchecked.
It was a difficult time for Brianne when she visited Dr. Now’s office and asked for his help. By then, her weight had exceeded the 700-pound mark and her father had cut all ties with her. Dr. Now warned her that if she didn’t get her weight under control immediately, she could end up bedridden for the rest of her life.
Brianne accepted the challenge and completed her program, ultimately ending up victorious. Initially upset at having to drastically change her habits and exercise, Brianne stuck to her routine and, with her never give up attitude, took charge of conquering her obstacles.
At the end of her episode, the audience realized Brianne’s resilience and hard work when the scale showed that she had lost 382 pounds during the time she was under Dr. Now’s guidance. She was given the green light for surgery, and the future looks bright for Brianne.
What Happened To Brianne Dias From My 600-lb Life?
Sometimes, our biggest demons aren’t the most obvious ones. Brianne was able to overcome her weight issues and is leading a healthy life after the episode. There is no longer the fear of being bedridden and not being able to move well. Brianne has transformed almost beyond recognition and has changed her life for the better. Yet, weight was not her greatest enemy.
While she was away getting treatment from Dr. Now, it was alleged that her husband cheated on Brianne with an old friend of hers. It was reported that Brianne’s husband was seen with Jamie Moon in Florence, Oregon, while Brianne was in Houston, Texas.
Brianne, who was deeply in love with her husband, was devastated by this development. She claimed that Rick broke her heart, but vowed not to let the situation bring her down. Starcasm reported that a source explained that the woman Rick was seen with was considered a “Demon Woman” who had been kicked out of three churches and also had numerous no-contact orders against her.
Her husband’s betrayal wasn’t the only obstacle for this brave woman. Brianne, 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, thankfully, Brianne had to face the terrible ordeal of a miscarriage.
Life still had more curve balls for Brianne to endure. Shortly after her pregnancy, several sources claimed that Jamie Moon had apparently accused Brianne of cheating. Sources said Moon allegedly accused Brianne of cheating on her husband while she was in Houston working on her weight. Although the claim was never proven, there is also no confirmation that Jamie Moon was the one who brought this accusation against Brianne.
