When you go through a harsh break-up there are quite a few options to take. You could go down the route of consistently going out with your mates, spamming your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds, letting your ex know you're having no trouble getting over them. You could also go for the indirect status technique, though that is endlessly annoying and you never should.
One thing to do that is becoming increasingly popular now that we have easy ways to show it off, is losing a shit ton of weight.
This woman, from Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, felt that the best way to get over her ex-boyfriend was to transform her body, turning the negative into a positive.
"I was so sad when we broke up but, actually, it was the best thing that could have happened to me," 25-year-old Sian Ryan told the Daily Mail. "When my boyfriend broke up with me out-of-the-blue, it changed everything. I was sad and worked out on my emotions at the gym. I wasn't trying to win him back, I was trying to take my mind off him."
Ditching nights out and takeaways for the gym and a healthy diet, she managed to shed seven stone in 18 months, heeding the words of Khloe Kardashain: "The best form of revenge is a good body."
From 19 stone to 12 stone, she now feels better than ever.
"I would party all the time and eat junk. I'd drink litres and litres of sugary, full-fat cola and loved takeaway pizzas. I'd go to McDonald's and get two portions of food. I never touched vegetables. It was never-ending," she told the Mail. "I now eat oats for breakfast, lean chicken and lots of veg and protein. Most off all, I love feeling strong.
"I was fat and sad. Now I'm healthy and happy."
This is such a great effort, and now her love is all for the gym.
If this doesn't make you stop being lazy and get your arse into gear, we don't know what will.
