They Lost Half Their Size!

Meet the real people who literally lost half their body weight – without surgery or diet pills


Teresa Williams
Age: 27
Occupation: Medical assistant
Starting Weight: 310 lbs.
Why She Wanted to Lose the Pounds: "I was sick of being 25 years old, huffing and puffing," says Williams, who lives in Burbank, Calif. "[I couldn't] even go up a flight of stairs without stopping to breathe. I hated shopping – I was a size 24. I wanted to have kids, I wanted to have a family. I wanted to live."
