Diane had just moved to Oakhurst, California, and was pretty excited as it had a variety of options for outdoors. But there was one problem- her weight. She weighed 400 pounds. And it's not like she hadn't tried to lose the fat. It's just that she never found the right motivation.

Time to lose weight!
