'Half-Ton Killer: Transformed' sneak peek: Mayra Rosales' weight loss regime
Now, Rosales has lost more than 800 pounds, which TLC documented in a new special, "Half-Ton Killer: Transformed," airing Wednesday (Dec. 4) at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Zap2it has an exclusive sneak peek at the special showing the beginning of Rosales' massive weight loss. She's in the hospital eating a restricted 1000-calorie diet, and manages to lose 100 pounds in a single week. Still, her massive legs feel like shackles.
"I've lost some weight already, but from my waist up I'm smaller than the rest of me. I feel like back when they would get people in jail and tie around them, like, a big ball. I have those balls attached to my legs and I can't move," she says.
