Spoiler alert: She didn't stay with him!

Chloe Cooper was 23 when her boyfriend got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. While this sounds like a fairytale in the making for the couple, it was actually the beginning of the end. 

According to Yahoo, Cooper's boyfriend at the time presented her with a ring that was too small for her, and when asked why he bought it too small he told her she could "wear it when you lose weight". 

She said, “When he gave me the ring I couldn’t even get it over my knuckle."

Like most of us would, she kicked him to the curb. The couple had been together since Chloe was 16 and he was five years older than her. By the time he proposed, Chloe weighed approximately 98kg and was wearing size 20 clothing.

Chloe added, "Looking back now, I know he was putting his insecurities on me." Once the relationship ended, Cooper decided to start exercising and cut out chocolate and sweets out of her diet, losing around 25kg.

She said, “I never thought I would be lifting heavy weights… But now I absolutely love it.”
