(Scroll down for video) A woman is sharing her story of how she went from an obese bearded man to a hot-looking woman.
Sona Avedian, 33, lived as a boy named Matthew, until her courageous transition that began three years ago.
Avedian said that when she was 4 years old, she was left embarrassed as her mother caught her crossdressing. Since then, she hid her secret from the world.
Avedian joined the U.S. Marine Corps in an attempt to find happiness. She served six combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.
After finishing her service, she went to visit family in Armenia, where she met a nice woman, got married and had a baby girl.
However, even though life seemed to be perfect, Avedian was still very unhappy. Her weight ballooned to 240 pounds and she let her facial hair grow wild.
Avedian then decided to move her family to Austin, Texas, where she came out as a transgender. Avedian admitted that it was a hard time for her and her wife.
The couple since divorced, but stayed in contact for the sake of their daughter, who is now 5 years old.
Avedian said that she lost many friends due to her lifestyle choice, but she also made lots of new friends.
Avedian has a good relationship with her daughter, who only remembers her as a woman. Avedian posted a number of videos to her YouTube channel, showing her enjoying time with her adorable daughter.
