The Biggest Loser contestant Sherry Johnston to speak at OCC

If you're looking to lose weight and you need a little inspiration, we may have found it for you.

Sherry Johnston lost 99 pounds on Season 9 of The Biggest Loser. She took part in the show with her daughter Ashley who lost more than 180 pounds and more weight than any woman ever on the show.

Appearing on Today in Central New York on NBC 3 this morning, Sherry Johnston says she has completely transformed her life. She says healthy living was never a part of her daily routine until she learned how to balance eating well and exercising. She's managed to keep off much of the weight she lost on the show. Johnston also credits better sleep habits with helping her shed the extra pounds.

She will speak at an event at Onondaga Community College at 5:30 p.m. tonight. The event is free and open to the public.
