Woman who lost 222 pounds is now running marathons1/17/2013
Aimee Smith is half the woman she used to be after losing an incredible 222 pounds. The 44-year-old is now competing in triathlons and 10K runs. She had no idea how heavy she had let herself get since her scales at home only went up to 300. But when she finally mustered the courage to check and discovered she was actually 427 pounds of Wisconsin woman, she knew it was time to make a change. While gastric bypass surgery can take some of the credit for her incredible transformation, she puts the loss down to using food "as fuel rather than a friend." [Source]
