Zsalynn was never too ashamed of her weight. “She was the fat girl rock star!” A wife and mother of a 9-year-old daughter, Zsalynn no longer thinks of herself as this proclaimed rockstar, although her husband loves her larger figure. Her life has become a daily routine of immobility. She watches 7-8 hours of TV a day and deals with her feelings of inadequacy by eating sugar. As a young child, Zsaylnn was of normal weight until she reached 8-years-old. From freshman year to senior year in high school, Zsalynn went from 170 to 375-lbs. After graduating, Zsalynn found NAAFA (The National Association to Advanced Fat Acceptance); she was flown around the world to visit men who enjoyed the company of large women. This became her life – a life of parties, overweight women, and men who paid Zsaylnn’s way to travel the world. Now, a wife and mother, Zsalynn has deteriorated to living her life secluded in her home. Weighing close to 600-lbs, she no longer accepts herself because she relies on other people to take care of her daughter and do what normal sized mothers can do. Zsalynn is at her breaking point. She “hates being this size” and finally wants to do something about it.
