Being raised by drug-addicted parents, Nicole's only comfort growing up was food, which led her, at just 23 years old, to tip the scales at over 700 pounds. "Even as a toddler, I remember food was what made me happy," she said on her episode of the show.
"When I was little, me and my mom never really got along because she had a really bad temper and would explode on me for things that I just didn't understand. And when that happened, I would always run to the garage, because my dad would be out there working on something. So I would just sit with him, and he would give me a snack. And that was safety."
By the time she reached her early teens, Nicole weighed over 200 pounds, and when her parents’ drug addiction worsened, her weight increased rapidly. These days, things are looking up for Nicole. She's taking care of her two children with her fiancé Charlie and actively updates fans on her Facebook page. "Im sooo in love with you!" she wrote on March. 8. "Your [sic] my forever, 5 years strong my love. No one has ever made me feel the way you do."
