Mayra Lisbeth Rosales used to be known as the biggest woman in the world. Her story of change is amazing and inspiring.
Her journey began when something terrible happened to her sister’s child and she had to take over as the main parent.
This was the moment that changed her.
Mayra had a number of surgeries with the help of a dedicated medical team in her drive for change.
Because these surgeries were complicated, she needed special tools to get to the hospital. She fixed the damage her extreme weight had done to her skin and muscles over the course of 11 surgeries.
Mayra was determined to take care of her sister’s kids, which is what drove her to stick to exercise plans that doctors had approved. She worked very hard and lost an amazing 400 kilograms, which is about 80% of her full body weight.
