When Diane Naylor, now 63, resigned and moved from Fresno to Oakhurst, California four years ago, she found amazing natural surroundings, where she could enjoy outdoor activities such as climbing, biking, hiking etc.
The only problem was that she weighed more than 400 pounds and didn’t want to be outdoors. In the interview she gave TODAY, she said “I felt miserable and depressed because of my weight. I wasn’t active at all and I couldn’t do all of the things I wanted to.” Although she had had several attempts to lose weight in the past, she always quit before finishing her weight loss plan. But, everything changed when she saw an episode of the TV show “Castle,” which spurred her to give weight loss another try.
“One of the medical examiners was telling the lead actress she should follow her dreams,” Naylor explained. “He pointed to the corpses and said, ‘All those people had dreams, but their time ran out, so don’t let that happen to you.’ It was like a light bulb went off — I had a lot of dreams, too, and I wanted to accomplish them.”
The next day, she didn’t want to lose any more time. Here, she explains what steps she took to drop amazing 225 pounds.

“Don’t put it off,” Naylor warned. “No one gets any younger, and the younger you are, the easier it is. I started at 59, which proves anyone can do it. Why start six months from now? Start today”
