Kate Puncher, 31, is a former model from Glasgow. She perfectly knows what dieting is. Since she turned 18 years old, she started to develop an eating disorder. It was because her boyfriend said he would break up with Kate if she gained any extra pound.
The girl stopped eating. She ate nothing but mints. She was starving, throwing up after meals and taking laxatives. She reached her lowest weight of 4 stone in 1999. She was so weak she couldn’t hold a spoon in her hands. She spent much time in hospital, and, surely, her boyfriend broke up with her.
Her life changed in 2005. This was when she met Barry. The two fell in love and dated for two years when the firefighter proposed. However, he threatened to break up with her if she… didn’t put on 3 stone before the wedding.
To motivate his second half, Barry bought her a wedding dress two sizes too big and set a deadline.
Kate was eating three meals a day to gain weight. She managed to overcome her anorexia and in the summer of 2009 the couple got married in Cuba.
