Recovering Anorexic Woman And Obese Man Planning To Marry After Meeting At Eating Disorder Clinic

Lizzie Elsburg weighed roughly 90 pounds when she entered a California clinic for treatment for anorexia and bulimia. Since getting healthy was her top priority, she didn't expect to meet her future husband there. But Elsburg and Chris Glasgow, a patient at the clinic for overeating, are engaged to be married, just months after meeting.

"I thought he was a nice guy," Elsburg, 24, says in the video above. "It ended up progressing to more." In February, Glasgow, 28, proposed.

"I said 'yes' pretty quickly," she says.

Now a healthier 126 pounds, Elsburg says the wedding is "contingent" on one thing: Glasgow's continued weight loss. He has about another 110 pounds to go before he's satisfied, according to the video above.

And while they might seem to be the living proof that opposites attract, Elsburg says their individual struggles with food are in fact very similar.
