Meet Mayra Rosales, a 1,000 pound woman who lost nearly 80 percent of her body weight after undergoing intensive liposuction. Probably just as shocking, she falsely claimed to have accidentally killed her nephew by rolling on him in an effort to cover up for a murder committed by her sister Jaimie.
Her claim was proved false after autopsy results showed her nephew died from multiple injuries to his skull, injuries inflected by his mother. Her trial made headlines after — get this — she had to be cut out of her house to attend court.
Jaimie eventually confessed to the crime and was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
In 2011, Mayra underwent surgery to remove more than 800 pounds of fat so that she can take proper care of her sister’s remaining children. She received 11 different operations, including skin removal procedures.
“Food to me is I have to eat to live,” she told ABC13. “Before it was living to eat, and now you know, it’s just something normal.”
Man, I still find it hard to understand how people can get so unbelievably fat…
