Evgenia says she first started to put on weight when she had children.
She explains: ‘I had never been skinny but I was not fat either. During my first pregnancy I naturally put on some weight.’
Happily settled into motherhood, she didn’t try and shed any extra pounds and focused on raising her children.
After her second child, she says her weight further increased, spiralling to an unhealthy 280lbs and leaving her feeling depressed.
Evgenia says: ‘I could not look at myself in the mirror. Everything was fat, cellulite, my skin was like orange peel. I was ashamed to post my photographs in social networks.’
Although happy about motherhood, Evgenia, [pictured during pregnancy], gained a lot of weight in the process. She was motivated to fight the weight gain after feeling depressed and unhealthy following her husband’s betrayal

However the pressure on social media to look slim she says, saw her time trying to edit her photos: ‘I spent hours with my phone trying to use Photoshop and make myself slimmer but failed.
Initially supportive of her figure, her husband told her that he liked her curves.
He tried to deny it, saying he was just talking to her. And he began to blame me too…saying I had post-natal depression…
However, their relationship hit the rocks with her former partner becoming ‘rude’ to her and frequently staying away from home.
She found out from checking his mobile calls that he was in touch with his ex-girlfriend.
The mother-of-two says: ‘He tried to deny it, saying he was just talking to her. And he began to blame me too. He said I had a post-natal depression and he needed advise from this lady on how to deal with me.’
She said: ‘After this betrayal I revised my values. I understood it was time to change.
Now the would-be model spends her time updating her followers on social media with her weight loss.
Evgenia, seen [center], with the reality show producers, is now a familiar face on Russian TV after appearing on a dating show ‘Let’s Get Married’
‘I decided that neither children, nor business or anything else is more important than myself.
‘I thought that if you want to change your life, you should start with yourself. I set a goal – to lose around [133 lbs].’
She gave up her beloved meat and fried potatoes, along with sausages and pastry and began eating healthy foods. She also drank a slimming drink that contains fats, proteins and carbohydrates plus minerals and vitamins to accurately monitor her calorie intake.
She has since starred on Russian TV show Let’s Get Married as she seeks a new partner.
Of her appearance on the show, she says: ‘I was very flattered and in the final I did get a man,’ she said.
‘He was incredibly handsome. We are a great match and we are still in touch. He lives in St Petersburg. If he calls me to come and see him, I will surely think about it.’
