Nancy's Weight Loss Story on Oprah

Weight Loss Show Stoppers on Oprah

Guest: Nancy Total
Weight Lost: 530 pounds
Current Weight: 173 pounds

Topping the scales at more than 700 pounds, Nancy did not leave her house for three years. Winded from simply getting up to use the restroom, Nancy found a community of weight loss support through online chat rooms. But these were not diet journey online forums; rather they were political chat rooms where Nancy could voice her witty humor and her political beliefs and connect with others who shared in her views and laughed at political pundits. Brought out of her social isolation, her self-worth began to grow as her portion sizes and need to compulsively eat started to decrease.

She also quit her three-pack-a-day cigarette habit and today, is still in control of her eating habits.
"I don't know how to explain it except that I really don't struggle to stay away from four pieces of cheesecake anymore," Nancy says. "I don't deny myself one, I can have one. I just don't want four anymore."
