The couple, both 29, met when Preston weighed 227 pounds and Hoover tipped the scale at 339 pounds, People noted. They began their romance in secret during the filming of the reality TV weight-loss competition and had their first real date days after the show's finale aired.
"We have a lot in common," Preston told People. "Going through something like we went through is life-changing.
"We are not the same people we were before all this and we are both at a point in our lives where we know what it's like to be fat and miserable -- and what it's like to be happy and healthy."
