SPECIAL REPORT: Losing to Live

Posted: Updated:

Obesity is on the rise in the United States.

As waistlines expand, so do medical costs as bodies literally crumble under their own weight.

Theresa Borawski was well on her way to giving up two years ago when she weighed 428 pounds.

Then she didn't.

Theresa fought, watched what she ate and lost more than 275 pounds without surgery or trendy diets.

Now about to turn 50 and less than 150 pounds, Theresa is finally living for the first time and spreading her message that no goal is too big to take down.

In his two-part special Report, 9&10's Eric Lloyd has Theresa's amazing journey and what you may be able to do to help yourself "Lose to Live."
