Lorna Shelton, 58, was not very lively this time last year. The Centralia, Washington native weighed nearly 250 pounds and had trouble walking.
“I had to have both knees replaced, I was walking with a cane,” said Shelton.

“After I had gotten 40 pounds off, the next ten pounds seemed to take forever, I needed to do something different,” said Shelton.
