Cathi's Weight Loss Story on Oprah

Weight Loss Show Stoppers on Oprah

Guest: Cathi

Total Weight Lost: 340 pounds
Current Weight: 190 pounds

When Cathi bought a two-tiered wedding cake decorated with fake names, and ate it by herself within a 48-hour period, this 506-pound young woman finally admitted to herself that she had a problem. Rather than opting for gastric bypass surgery, Cathi took matters into her own hands and began researching other successful weight loss plans and began to swap out frosting and white flour for veggies and lean proteins.

In her first year, she dropped 90 pounds, but because she weighed so much, the lost weight wasn’t noticeable on her large frame. So she stepped it up and began exercising in a cemetery to avoid having anyone see her. When the first frost hit, she braved the gym, but only at 4:30 a.m. to once again protect her privacy. The morning gym crew became her ardent cheering section and within another few years she dropped more than 200 pounds. Cathi also completed a marathon in 2005.

"I feel invigorated, energized, empowered, emotionally and physically strong and powerful," she says. "I want others to get to this point and feel as fantastic as I do now!"
