Brittney Gigante used to eat a bagel or breakfast sandwich in the morning and grab takeout most days for lunch and dinner. “I didn’t know how to order healthy options, nor did I want to; I was totally out of shape,” said Gigante, 25, who weighed 155 pounds after graduating from Daemen College in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration.

Sally Donnelly spent years missing out on family memories, and she just felt “horrible.” But now that she has lost 68 pounds over the last year, that will all change in July.“I have a 14-year-old grandson and he lives in Texas. When he would come up in the summer, I was too heavy to really enjoy going out, swimming, fishing and doing all the things that I know I was capable of doing, but couldn’t in my body.
