This is Alvina Rayne. It was her abusive relationship that helped her gain the weight that she dreaded and forced her to eat food for comfort while suffering depression. She is also a mother of two!
She turned to food as her boyfriend verbally abused her and even called her a “fat piece of garbage” when she reached 274 pounds, the heaviest she has ever been. Her boyfriend even told her that she would never lose the weight nor would she ever find another man to love her.
In 2009, she knew she had to make a difference in her life for both her and her children. She knew that her lifestyle of buying men’s clothes just to fit in had to change and she did just that.
Her reluctance to leave her boyfriend only made matters worse, but eventually, she knew she had to cut him before she could cut any pounds off of her.
After finally dumping her boyfriend, she made a goal to revamp her entire lifestyle. She did what is called a “low-carb keto diet.” She used her ex’s hurtful words as fuel to power through her diets and workouts.
She eventually lost about 130 pounds! She even documented the progress with a video blog to inspire others that her achievements are possible for everyone. When her ex’s mom saw her again, she eventually told her ex and he called her up. “I heard you put on some hotness,” he said in a phone call, before he tried to get back with her.
She told her that “there wasn’t a chance in the world,” and she held herself to that! She’s now married to this man, Sascha, who treats her like a loving boyfriend actually does. “I want others to know that they can start their life completely over…you don’t have to stay where you are…it’s so powerful to realize that you are in control of your body and life.” Truer words have never been spoken, Alvina.
