By now I think weve all come to the conclusion that selfies are here to stay. Ill let that sad fact sink in while I introduce you to a brand new form of selfie thats been giving ex-boyfriends all over the world many a restless nights sleep: the revenge selfie.
Christine Carter, 28, went through a perfect case of the revenge selfie when she lost 150 pounds (along with a controlling, jealous boyfriend) in the space of 16 months. At her heaviest, Christine, from Dallas, weighed a whopping 275 pounds. She claimed her boyfriend wouldnt let her lose the weight in order to stop her from leaving him.
Christine continued: Being overweight, I didnt feel I deserved anything better I went from a place of being fat and happy to just fat. It was taking a major toll on my body and instead of dealing with my feelings I was eating them.
She would spend the day binge-eating on unhealthy food: I would wake up and eat all day long sometimes I would eat in the middle of the night.
After losing an incredible 150 pounds, Christine took to Instagram to document her textbook revenge body. She has since gained 26,000 followers and uses her captions to inspire others:
I found this little gem in my drawer the other day: my before swim suit. Same suit. Just not 100 sizes too small anymore
