Amazing teacher worked hard & dropped 227 lbs!

Kathleen Riser knew she had a weight problem. Standing 5'4", she tipped the scales at 383 pounds. But, her attempts to get in shape were met with judgment. She was mocked at the gym and she was discouraged.

Then one day, the middle school teacher struggled to make it up the stairs to her classroom. That was Riser's breaking point.

She enlisted a trainer and started to eat right and exercise. The best part? As Riser lost the weight (227 lbs. so far!), she gained confidence.

She and her trainer will be talking to Mike Galanos today at 12pm EST on HLN Now. to share more about her amazing journey.

Go Kathleen Riser!!!
