Mayra Lizbeth Rosales (born 1980) went from 470 to 90 kg in 5 years time. The dramatic turn over in her life was when she was declared innocent for the death of her nephew Elis – with her the enormously big and grotesque body.
Mayra Rosales originally told police she had accidentally put to death two-year-old Eliseo by rolling on top of him while babysitting four years ago. Her 1,100lb frame became her defence – as investigators proved she was so heavy she could not have committed the crime.
She had an “happy ending” in front of the court, because her sister confessed that she mistreated her child and now she is sentenced on 15 years prison. Losing weight is a huge process, it’s not over yet, Mayra will have surgery and a gastric bypass will be installed in her body.
Her life was a drama. Even she can not tell how she survived and lived life as the heaviest woman in the world, full with sorrow, helplessness, in bed and depending on the help of others.
When she put to death her sisters’ son, there was a tribe, and she was in the world media in 2009. Accused that she fell accidentally guilty a 2 years old kid with her weight.
Yet, in 2011 she was realised, because the scars of the head of the kid were a result of abuse, and not suffocation. – I just said that it was my fault, because I wanted to help my sister. That’s why I said that it was my fault, even though I knew that it wasn’t. I knew that my sister is abusing the kid, yelled at him and batted him.
The court was on the side of the justice – said Mayra. When she was liberated, the turnover of her life started. Now her nutrition is rich in fruits and veggies, with low intake of carbohydrates and fats. – I thought that I am dying.
Everything before this was not life and even now I see some things. I learn to move, to do some regular stuff like going to the shop. I get use from my new body. Now things are very different – says Mayra, the woman which had great success in losing, thanks to numerous operation, workouts, changes of diet, but also hard physiological sessions
