How These People Dropped Half Their Body Weight
New Year, new you... these people have inspiring weight loss stories.
Heather Patterson is a health coach from Georgia who used to weigh 257 pounds. She's now a svelte 130 pounds after dropping half her body weight.
She told INSIDE EDITION: “I had horrible eating habits before. Loved dairy and I could eat a half a gallon of ice cream every few days, and did.”
Patterson said she knew she had to lose weight when she saw a photo of herself on her friend's Facebook page.
“Now, instead of a gallon of ice cream every couple of days, I might have a cup of Greek yogurt,” she said.
Heather's story and others like her are featured in People magazine's “Half Their Size” issue, on newsstands now.
Austin Shifflett is a good-looking student from Virginia who used to weigh in at 324 pounds.
“I stepped on the scale at my friend's house and I thought I would be around 250 pounds, the scale said 324 and I was like way too young to be this heavy,” he said.
He now weighs 158 pounds after shedding 166 pounds.
