Betsy Ayala was heartbroken when she discovered that not only was her husband cheating on her, but he and his mistress have been bashing her for her weight in their private messages. The Texas mother found the Facebook messages between the two where her husband called her a "fat f**k" and a "cow." Instead of going ballistic and karate chopping that prick in the nuts like most of us would do, Ayala got revenge by losing over 100 lb.s. That works, too.
In 2013, when Ayala was her heaviest weight, she weighed 262 pounds. She had just given birth to her daughter, and instead of being a supportive father and husband, Ayala's spouse/childhood sweetheart started hooking up with a coworker. Motivated by his cheating, Ayala set out on her fitness journey, telling The Daily Mail, "I decided that this wouldn’t define me and I was going to change for me and for my daughter."
She started by doing Zumba three days a week. Before long, she also started lifting weights and running with her sister. Betsey now hits the gym six days a week, watches what she eats, and uses HerbaLife Shakes to keep her weight in check. Today weighs 159 pounds.
On top of the 103 pounds she lost, Betsy also dropped that nasty husband of hers. Looking back on it, Ayala says that her husband cheating is one of the best things that could have ever happened to her. "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 told The Daily Mail. "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."
Well, you know what they say: success is the sweetest revenge.
