Determined Mom Undergoes Major Weight Transformation To Get Back At Her Cheating Husband
While losing weight just to get back at someone is not always a good idea, people are sometimes left with no choice. This woman's journey may have been inspired by hurt and pain, but she still managed to turn her life around.
Texas mom Betsy Ayala was over 260 pounds when she gave birth to her daughter in 2013. A few months after the child was born, she was heartbroken to discover that her now ex-husband was cheating on her.
What made the matter even worse was that she discovered some messages on his phone where her husband and his mistress were making fun of her (Betsy's) size.
The mom was devastated. With a six-month-old and unsure what to do next, Betsy decided it was time to make some changes. Today, she has lost over 100 pounds by changing her eating habits and exercising more.
Speaking to HoneyNine, Betsy said her husband's action was a blessing in disguise. At the time she desperately needed something to change so to her, her prayers were answered but not the way she expected. Her marriage falling apart gave her a chance for a fresh start.
While her cheating husband might have caused Betsy to take a second look at her life, it was her determination to be the best mom for her daughter that ultimately kept her going.
I wanted her to be proud of her mum and I wanted to be an example for her.
She had always struggled with her weight, she said, so getting past all of that has been amazing. She's incredibly proud of what she has been able to accomplish and today, she inspires many more women with her story.
I’m a completely different person both on the inside and outside because of my outlook on everything.
As for her ex, Betsy said it did take some time but they are now good friends as she was able to eventually forgive him.
Khloe Kardashian sure can relate
The reality star once revealed, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, that part of her motivation for losing weight was as a form of revenge. It was not at one particular person, however, but as a way of getting her life back after being bullied and jeered at for being fat most of her life.
In fact, she was so on board with the concept that it became the birth of her reality show 'Revenge Body With Khloe Kardashian' which airs on E!
Both of these women know what it means to be truly hurt by other people's actions due to their weight. And they remain an inspiration for anyone out there who feels ridiculed. Anything is possible.
