A formerly obese mother lost a huge amount of pregnancy weight after discovering her cheating husband and his lover calling her a ‘fat f**k’.
Betsy Ayala, 35, from Houston, Texas, tipped the scales at 118kg after giving birth to her daughter, Isabella, in 2013.
Six months later, the marketing manager discovered her ex-husband was having an affair and found messages to his lover that attacked her weight.
However, the tough mother vowed not to be defeated and began to work out with her sister and switched sugary snacks for healthy shakes.
Now the single mother, who hits the gym six times a week, is a svelte 71kg considers her husband’s cheating a blessing in disguise as it gave her the fresh start she hoped for.
She said: ‘I didn’t know what to do with myself at the time.
In an attempt to get healthy, Betsy turned to Herbalife shakes in 2013 and lost 27kg in four months, but the real tipping point came when she discovered her husband’s affair.
She said: ‘I started having more energy and losing weight, even though that wasn’t really my intention at the time and slowly started to get better.
‘I had been with him since I was 17 and pretty much devoted my life to our relationship and him.
‘I was devastated. I found out through some messages I read on his Facebook where they were calling me a cow and a fat f**k and just trashing me and my whole world fell apart.
‘He would always tell me I looked fine or would try to get me to eat junk all the time which is why I was so devastated when I read those messages because it was almost like he enabled me or wanted me to stay that way.’
Betsy said: ‘I’m a completely different person both on the inside and outside because of my outlook on everything.
‘I know that I’m capable of so much and I’m so happy to set a good example for my daughter which is extremely important for me.’
She added: ‘My ex-husband and I are actually good now.
‘It took me a while to get to that place of forgiveness but what he did was about him and not me.
‘My journey has really helped me understand that.’
Morning!!! Happy Memorial Day Fam … Ok so throughout the last couple of months with all the love you guys send me there have been on occasion those who message me saying there’s no way my results are legit without surgery and that I’ve had a tummy tuck or a boob job or that I photoshop my pics because it doesn’t look like I have a tummy etc … we’ll you cant alter a video so there you have it. I haven’t had any surgery the boobs are real yes they aren’t as perky after having kids and losing over 100 lbs but they’re there, yes I have a tummy and loose skin and stretch marks because I’m HUMAN, I got pregnant while being over 200 lbs and was probably over 285 lbs at my highest … Nothing against surgery which I plan on having early next year by the way 😊 I could care less about the cynics but I do care about those who are on the fence about making a change in their life but think it’s not realistic or unachievable because of the large amount of weight they have to lose. GET AFTER IT !! 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 If you don’t know how to get started contact me 🙋🏻 info in my Bio … Love You Guys!! 😘 #motivationmonday ——————————————– #21dayshakechallenge #lightthematch #alwaysinpursuit #noquitters #joinmyteam #Herbalife #herbalife24 #queenb #getfitnowaskmehow #relentless #fitmom #fitchick #girlswholift #momswholift #motivation #noexcuses #bestlifeever #consistency #fitness #fitspo #weightloss #transformation #bodyafterbaby #wellnesscoach #fueledbyherbalife #boss #mommymakeover #weightlosstransformation #beforeandafter
