An inspiring woman is rising above bullying, and her transformation is the perfect revenge after her ex called her a ‘fat piece of garbage.'
A toxic relationship can be hard on a person. Being insulted and bullied, victims find it hard to believe in themselves, because their significant other treats them so poorly. This 32-year old mother, Alvina, found herself in this exact situation when she found herself in an emotionally and verbally abusive relationship.
Because she didn't love herself, she stayed with the man and became overweight due to depression and an unhealthy habit of overeating to cope. This caused her to weigh up to 274 pounds. Her health started to cause an impact on her daily life. And she could barely get herself up the stairs or spend active time with her kids.
Alvina found herself in the headspace where she was too weak to leave her abusive partner. When he called her a "fat piece of garbage," she finally had enough and wanted to take her life back.
