One woman worked hard and changed her life to lose as much weight as some people weigh.
Tracy Plumb lost 150 pounds after receiving an email.
Plumb had been invited to her 10-year high school reunion. That is when she decided her life needed a change.
She said she put on 120 pounds since graduating from high school.
"When you're getting ready for social things and you're going to go to a party and you're trying to figure out what to wear and you're to the point where you've tried on everything you own and you're in tears because you look horrible in everything you're going to wear and nothing's gonna hide 50 pounds!" Plumb said.
Plumb said a perfect storm led her to use food to manage her feelings. One factor was her father’s death.
"When you are heavy you are aware, especially when you eat in public, everyone's watching you and judging you and thinking, ‘Well that's why she's fat. That's why she's overweight because she's eating that,’” Plumb said.
The reunion gave Plumb the motivation she said she needed to get her weight under control.
"I had to get my mind right. I had to get my life right. I had to be prepared to start the diet, full force and follow it every day,” Plumb said.
She said she worked out religiously and changed her routines. Half the battle was her diet.
