3.Painful Bed Sores Are Main Reason Why She Wanted to Lose Weight

Obese people, especially those who are morbidly obese have to deal with painful bed sores. Since they continuously sit at one place without moving, they develop painful sores on their body. Due to excess amount of fat deposited under skin, it is very difficult for them to clean or wash themselves. Mayra decided to lose weight as she thought it's better trying to lose weight than suffering from bed sores.

4.The Tragic Death of Her Nephew

This is the incident that changed her life completely. In 2008, in an unfortunate incident, Eliseo Rosales Jr. (son of Mayra Rosales sister Jaime Rosales) died after his mother Jaime hit hard on his head. Mayra Rosales lied to police and made a false confession that the kid was dead because she accidentally rolled over him. Mayra did this to protect her sister, as she thinks her life is already over because of her obesity. With autopsy reports showing the kid was dead because of a blunt force trauma on his head, the authorities started doubting Mayra's confession. In the end, Mayra told the court that it was her sister who accidentally killed her son, by hitting him on head, when he refused to eat. Jaime was sentenced 15 years in jail.
