116 kg girl rejected by many finds love in fitness trainer half her weight

A 257lb care worker who gave up on relationships after ex-boyfriends told her to diet or be dumped has finally found love with a man half her size.
Brittany Jacques, 23, struggled with her self confidence after previous partners put pressure on her to lose weight from her size 22 physique - despite the fact that her curves were something that had initially attracted them to her.
But after almost giving up, the singleton from Ontario, Canada, met personal trainer, Matt Montgomery, 23, on Facebook in August and hit it off straight away.
Now the couple are engaged and say it was love at first sight - even though they're regularly taunted for their 117lb weight difference online
Brit said: 'We had both almost given up on dating when we started talking. We hit it off right away from the moment we met. 'I was a bit hesitant at first. I've been in relationships where guys have told me that they will dump me if I don't start dieting or trying to lose weight.
'It did affect my self confidence and at one point I did start working out and trying to change my size.
'But then I realized that if I did that I wouldn't love myself anymore and I would be changing myself for someone else's perception of beauty.
I wasn't sure if I was ever going to find someone who really loved me for who I am but after meeting Matt I couldn't be happier.'Instantly attracted to Brit's self-confidence and body positive message, Matt revealed that his previous relationships with skinnier women had been littered with problems because of their body insecurities.At a candlelit snow covered scene in the countryside near their home, 140lb Matt popped the question to Brit on Saturday.
He said: 'I've been in previous relationships with skinny girls and they've not been happy in themselves at all. 'They weren't positive people or they constantly felt like they needed to change things about themselves and it got me down too. 'When I met Britt she was so confident in her own body, I loved that about her, she doesn't want to change anything and I would never ask her to. 'I love food as well so that's a plus I'm not worried about tracking her calories or dieting, I just want her to eat what she wants and be happy.' Matt said: 'I do notice people staring when we walk down the street but most of the comments we have had have been online.
'People comment on Instagram and suggest that I'm not big enough or man enough for her.'But the couple have dismissed suggestions that they can't love each other because of their size difference and insist they want to see more mixed weight relationships normalized. Brit said: 'I wish mixed weight relationships were more common and more in the norm.
