Loving yourself and your body is very important. If you’re not happy with the way you are, you should probably change something, or your mental health and self-love will suffer. That’s exactly what this single mom from the United States named Samantha Rawley did. After she found out her then-boyfriend was keeping her a secret from his parents because of her weight, she decided to lose 200 pounds to get revenge. But it wasn’t all about him—she mentioned that a lot of failed relationships later, she finally decided to find herself and who she really is, deciding that she first has to love and respect herself.
Samantha used to weigh about 363 lbs. After trying, again and again, to lose weight in the traditional ways and failing, she decided to get an operation done. After spending 20,000 dollars on gastric sleeve surgery and other expenses, she lost over 200 pounds and looks absolutely stunning. On her social media, she shares that the journey was difficult and it took a lot of work to get to where she is now.

We got an interview with Samantha and she told us more about herself: “I’m 30 years old, I live in Orange County, California. I am a single mom to an 11-year-old daughter. I work in real estate full-time and I have an Instagram show called VSGTea that I have created with my best friend Bre. Growing up, I always wanted to inspire people and find my ‘why,’ and it wasn’t until I found this community of people in the weight loss community that I really discovered my ‘why.’ I love talking to people about weight loss surgery and plastics after surgery and just helping them along their journeys!”
