LECWOOD, Washington - Two days after her 45th birthday, the news that Lori Yates told her about the news came: laboratory results that confirm the diagnosis of diabetes. At 306 lbs - "fatally obese" - and often consumed by suicidal thoughts, the diagnosis of diabetes was another burden that was not simply borne by Laurie.

Shortly before receiving a call from the doctor's office, predicting the diagnosis of diabetes, Lori entered the door of a small fitness center under construction near her home and asked her owner what she could do to help the club open up as soon as possible. draw? Spaces in equipment? Laurie told the club owner that she wanted a two-year membership and wanted to start now.

Wild mood swings and desperate acts were not new to Laurie. She says she tried to commit suicide for the first time at the age of six. Several years later, doctors diagnosed it as polarity.

All this makes the honor on Lori last week more than wonderful.

Ishopstar Fitness, the largest fitness club chain in the world, named Lori as one of four "National Members Success Award winners" for 2010.

"You have to see Lori working in the gym to believe her," says Mark Daly, national director of national media at Anytime Fitness. "It's stronger and more determined than anyone I've ever met."

In just four months, with the help of a personal trainer (Alex Seale) at Anytime Fitness Club in Lakewood, WA, Laurie lost more than 40 pounds. Better yet, medical tests confirmed that Laurie was no longer diabetic.

Fourteen months after joining the club, Laurie lost 120 pounds and turned herself completely.

"It was amazing to see her when she came back," Laurie doctor Leslie Baker says. "It was a great success. [Laurie's story] was often used to provide motivation and inspiration to my other patients."

She says that the despair that once consumed Laurie's life has been replaced by new feelings of hope.

"I never thought, I think, that there will be a day when I love myself, I love my body, I love where I am in my life," says Laurie. "I have to tell you, it's very amazing, something I will not trade for anything.
