How This 25-year Police Veteran Lost 121 Pounds - An Inspiring Weight Loss Story
Play • 30 min

After calling her "Fat Butt," this 25-year police veteran became a hermit crab and sank lower and lower into shame and guilt. But hear what happened when she found Code Red and lost 121 lbs.

She is now a speaker, author and living her best life at 54 years old. I am talking about Liz Weber, whose weight loss journey is so inspiring and unlike any other, we have done before. Her story will inspire all of us and resonate with many police officers, firefighters, and other first responders.

Working as an overweight police officer came with numerous challenges. Her weight often held her back, and faced ridicule from her fellow officers. Even though she enjoyed her job, it was getting difficult just to physically do the job.

Once she retired, she let herself go and became completely overweight at 261 pounds. At rock bottom with no hope, she came across Code Red and joined the 10-pound takedown challenge, and her weight started falling off.

Tune in to hear her amazing story, including some advice to overweight first responders on how they can seek help to get their life back.
