A single mother lost over £ 203 and spent $ 20,000 on plastic surgery after finding out her boyfriend cheated on her.
30-year-old Samantha Rawley of Orange County, California, was always abused because of her weight – bullied in school as a child.
But her confidence hit a new low when her boyfriend cheated on her in 2018 and shared photos of another girl on social media while the two were still together.
To make matters worse, her ex Samantha kept a secret from his family and friends. It gave her the motivation to drop the weight and get the ultimate revenge body.
The mother of one child had a stomach cuff and lost 204 pounds, went from 362.6 pounds to 159.6 pounds, and then spent $ 20,000 on reconstructive surgeries to tone her arms, abdomen, and legs.
Samantha Rawley, 30, of Orange County, California, lost £ 203 and spent $ 20,000 on reconstructive surgery to get her "revenge body" after her ex-boyfriend cheated on her. It went from 362.6 pounds to 159.6 pounds
"I turned it on and off as a secret for about a year and a half, which means absolutely no one knew we were dating," Samantha said.
& # 39; He actually started dating someone else and wasn't keeping it a secret, which resulted in us "breaking up".
“It was hard because I felt like I had always tried to make him happy and never lived for myself.
“I was so insecure because I was being kept a secret, that I was just emotionally exhausted.

“When I finally found out that he was dating someone else and was sharing it on all social media, I realized I could finally do this for myself.
“I've always been a pretty confident tall girl, but deep down I haven't reached my highest potential. I felt like I had reached my "ceiling" and had nowhere else to go. & # 39;
Samantha's diet was a roller coaster ride and her eating habits were unpredictable.
Some days she didn't eat all day and instead ate fast food at night, causing her weight to spiral out of control, peaking at 362.6 lbs.
The slimmer one was not ashamed of her body before her weight loss (picture), but said the fact that her boyfriend was hiding her from his family made her "insecure".

She said, “My diet was so unstable.
“Some days I wouldn't eat all day and then go to a fast food place and let off steam.
"My typical McDonalds order was a 10-piece chicken nugget and two cheeseburgers."
Now better known as @therealslimsammii on Instagram, Samantha shares her body transformation with 27,200 followers.
Samantha admitted that her previous diet was "unstable" and could see her fasting all day before doing a fast food binge (see previous picture).

Samantha Diet during her weight loss journey
Breakfast: usually an egg white, half a piece of toast and some fruit.
Lunch: A chicken wrap with a low-carb tortilla, buffalo sauce and spinach.
Dinner: either chicken or salmon with sautéed vegetables.
She underwent gastric cuff surgery in September 2018 and completely changed her diet by eating healthy and nutritious foods throughout the day.
Samantha also went for walks around her neighborhood to exercise, but this year she went to the gym and built weight training into her fitness program.
The mom has lost 203 pounds in total and dropped her weight to 159.6 pounds.
She's also spent $ 20,000 on tummy tuck, arm, thigh, and breast lifts to remove the excess skin from her extreme weight loss.
She said, “When I made a change, I really realized how unhappy I really was and just led a life of discontent.
Samantha was a connoisseur at heart and enjoyed hearty foods and alcoholic beverages before losing weight

“My mindset has changed 100 percent and I'm much happier and more positive now because at this point I feel like I've broken through my ceiling and it's just from up here!
“I was bullied in high school and of course random comments from people, but I think my biggest obstacle was myself and the attitude behind the scenes.
“I really didn't think I could lose the weight I wanted. I had a tummy tuck, an arm and thigh lift, and a breast lift!
Pictured before. Although she didn't realize she was unhappy beforehand, the super leaner said she felt happier and more positive about the future now than ever before
Samantha hugged her new body, showed it off in workout clothes and posted her recovery from the surgery on Instagram

& # 39; Recovery for the tummy tuck was pretty easy.
"I had a lot of swelling, but I would rate it four out of ten on the pain scale." The arm raises were a breeze, three out of ten and I would do it again if I had to!
& # 39; The breast lift was a solid five out of ten and the thigh lift was eight out of ten, it was my most painful surgery.
"Recovery on the thigh lift has been very slow as it's my biggest cut so far."
Samantha can now be more active with her 11-year-old daughter Alexis who travels to Disneyland and can now ride her, which she was unable to do in the past due to her weight.
She said, “My daughter and I have always been very close, but I feel like she is watching my transition and seeing me go through everything that has brought us closer.

“She is very helpful and sweet and knows exactly how my diet works and supports me!
“I can actually help train her softball team, take her to Disneyland on certain trips, and just be more active!
“I really am the happiest I've ever been.
“I can't even put into words how grateful I am for this type of experience and what this trip has brought and taught me.
“Next, I'd like to make a difference in the weight loss community in terms of mental health. This is currently my main focus and educating the community! & # 39;
