(MTV News) – Misty Shaffer has struggled with weight all her life. When her husband was deployed to Iraq for a year, she decided to use his absence to re-commit herself to losing weight so she could surprise him when he came home.
Shaffer, who wore a size 20 then, watched the pounds melt away. At her heaviest she weighed 315 pounds, after trying Atkins, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig and a slew of other weight loss programs without any success, she fell into depression and her marriage almost fell apart. She couldn’t afford surgery and didn’t know what to do next, until she saw Doctor Oz talk about Garcinia Cambogia and Colon Cleansing. Misty decided to give it a try, considering she had nothing to lose. That day changed her life forever. Now others are following her lead.
