The incredible transgender transformation of a former United States soldier will shock you as she sheds his huge weight and beards to become a stunning blonde beauty.

Sona Avedian, 33, was assigned male at birth and lived as a burly lad called Matthew until her brave transition three years ago.

Sona says she knew she was a girl from the age of four, but growing up in a conservative family it was a secret she expected to take to her grave.

For nine years the Michigan native worked overseas as a Marine. She married a woman, welcomed a daughter and "overcompensated" for her true feelings with a large beard and a big truck. 

With a beautiful wife, a young daughter and a respected job, she was living the American dream - except she was harbouring this huge secret.

"I became 238 lbs. of sadness," she says. "I was exhausted and I could no longer hide." 

In November 2012 Sona finally came out as transgender and started taking hormones, received laser hair removal treatments and got breast implants.

She also lost 98 lbs. by cutting out fast food and picking up yoga.

Now amicably divorced from her wife, living in Texas and working as a Lyft and Uber driver, Avedian said, "Personally I'm much happier, I don't have any conflicts with who I am. I am definitely a tomboy and that's okay. Before I couldn't stand myself and I couldn't interact with people." 

"The wife, the child, cars, guns, the Marines, everything – I have zero regrets," she says. "It was part of my journey."

She shared the story of her transformation on Facebook and YouTube, where she documented her life post-transition.

She hoped to inspire others with her story. "It's about being you," she said, "no matter what society thinks!"
