The Half Ton Killer’s transformation continues as evidenced by her amazing weight loss photos.

As Popdust previously reported, Mayra Rosales unwittingly shot to fame after she was embroiled in a bizarre murder case.

The then-1,200 pound woman faced years in jail after confessing to causing the death of her youngest nephew, Eliseo—claiming she had rolled over and accidentally suffocated him.

However, there were a number of glaring inaccuracies in Rosales’ story and a subsequent investigation found that it was actually her sister Jaime who caused the boy’s demise after beating her son to death with a hairbrush—she is currently serving a 15 year prison sentence.

Mayra’s story made headlines around the world and TLC produced a one-hour special, following the 32-year-old as she underwent a number of ground breaking surgeries, extensive rehabilitation and physical therapy in her bid to lose weight and adopt her incarcerated sister’s surviving nephew and nieces.

By the time Half-Ton Killer: Transformed, aired last December, Mayra had lost an astounding amount of weight and was almost unrecognizable from the hugely obese, bed ridden woman who was willing to take the rap for her sister’s crime.

Fast forward seven months and Mayra’s transformation is complete as evidenced by photos posted on her Facebook page.

It’s like night and day as you compare photos of Mayra then to the smiling, beautiful, confident woman she has become—but, don’t take our word for it, check out the gallery below.

The story of Mayra Rosales has been a sensationalist and amazing one right from the get-go.

And the next chapter is just as compelling as the woman, who once weighed 1,000 pounds sheds an absolutely astounding amount of weight—and Popdust has photos and video of her transformation.

Rosales shot to infamy as the “half-ton killer” after claiming she rolled over and accidentally suffocated her young nephew—she has since been cleared of all charges after it came to light it was actually her own sister who murdered the young boy by beating him to death with a hairbrush.

Since her acquittal, Mayra has begun taking the necessary steps to save her own life by attempting to lose a huge amount of weight in order to fulfill the dream of adopting her remaining nephew and nieces as her sister languishes in jail.

Tonight, TLC air an hour long special about Rosales’ amazing story, titled, Half-Ton Killer: Transformed, documenting her extreme weight loss journey—and Popdust has a sneak peek.

“However, learning how to live and cope with her newfound independence presents several new challenges. At 32 years old, everyday tasks such as buying groceries, job hunting and shopping for clothes are completely alien experiences to Mayra.

TLC

“Each step takes an enormous amount of willpower and patience, but adjusting to her new life is a battle she must conquer in order to prove that she’s capable of not only caring and providing for herself, but her nieces and nephew as well.

“For Mayra, the real journey begins here.”
