Lately we’ve seen all sorts of men make absolutely ludicrous requests that are supposed to motivate their girlfriends into marrying them (remember the 300 sandwiches lady?!). But what do you do with a boyfriend who tells you that, if you lose some weight he’ll “put a ring on your finger.” The answer, of course, is dump him.

Hopefully that’s what this woman who talks about her awfully abusive ex on Monday’s episode of Katie did. Check out the video below. Ms. Couric talks to a number of women about body image issues on October 21, and if any of the other women’s stories are like this one, it’s going to be a whole hour of us getting pissed off. Someone needs to make us a sandwich, or 300.
