I left his house immediately because I was so upset and went and told my grandmarried's like to start a diet program. Two stories of hard work, determination and perseverance leading to extraordinary results.

They're about to show us all right now. All right, but before we see what Austin and heather look like I want to bring in Charlotte Triggs, senior ed of "People" magazine. First of all what inspired you about these two stories in particular. These people that face struggles that a lot of Americans do. They struggled with their weight for years and really only once they saw this huge number on the scale did they take action and did it with Normal methods.

Healthy eating and working out and this is something that really everybody can be inspired by and take away the tips to use themself. I want to show everyone the door at home. This is the before picture right here. Austin and heather and let's open the door and welcome the new year. Look at them now. Hey, good to see you, Austin. First of all let's go over the Numbers. You lost how much weight, health injure.

About pounds so -- That's right, You lost to bring you to That is incredible and Austin, the Numbers on you, pounds, you're not at You lost pounds.

So what was it for you? You were with a friend. You both decided to weigh yourselves. He was always trying to gain weight and I hasn't weighed for a very long time.

I got on the scale and I was about 80 pounds heavier than I thought so that kind of like hit rock bottom. Heather, for you it was an image on Facebook seeing yourself looking bad. I think everyone has that dreaded moment when they get tagged on Facebook and don't know what's going to show up. I realized that's what I look like to everybody and I was tired of feeling bad enlooking like that and I was ready to make a hang. It crystallized it for you. Some of the bad habits. It looks good though to me.

You can tell I love dairy. Show us what you did to change that. Well, I turned to my life around and my eating happen byes. These are a lot of the things I eat. Instead of a gallon of ice cream I'll have Greek yogurt and put blueberries on them. Spinach with egg whites for extra protein and it's what I love to eat. Austin, show us how you turned your diet around. This go the burgers. I want the burgers.

Yeah, the burgers are great but now I just drink a lot of water. No more sodas and these Atkins shakes, I drink them a lot. Before and after work yous even as a meal replacement. A lot is self-motivation and you guys stand here as proof that we can do it in the new year.
