Texas mom Betsy Ayala always struggled with her weight. After she gave birth to her daughter, Betsy’s postpartum depression exasperated her eating issues.
She fell into a vicious cycle of eating to self-medicate, reaching her heaviest weight: 261 pounds. However, just six months after giving birth, the mom discovered that her husband was having an affair with a co-worker.
“I had been with him since I was 17 and pretty much devoted my life to our relationship and him,” Betsy told Caters.
What’s even worse is that Betsy discovered Facebook messages between the two of them where they called her a “cow” and “fat.”
“I was devastated. I found out through some messages I read on his Facebook where they were calling me a cow and a fat f*** and just trashing me, and my whole world fell apart,” she said.
What was odd is that her husband had never criticized her appearance to her face and even encouraged her unhealthy habits.
