When Kate, who's 5'7" and weighs 304 pounds, recently went into a bridal store, she was told that no dress in the store would fit her — leaving her crushed. "I refuse to have a wedding ceremony until I'm comfortable with my weight," says the 22-year-old. "I don't think I deserve the wedding of my dreams."
Even tying her shoes and going up and down stairs has become a struggle. "When I look in the mirror it's hard to see any good in me," says Kate, adding that her fiancé, Patrick, deserves better. "I don't feel worthy of Patrick's love ... I'm not living up to what he deserves as the mother of his children."
