Associated Press - January 11, 2014 9:27 pm

An Emporia woman who lost more than 200 pounds is telling her story to a national audience.

Denise Wolford, the office manager for the Lyon County Department on Aging, lost 217 pounds on Weight Watchers and will be featured on the company’s website later this spring. She’s also scheduled to appear on NBC’s Today Show on Monday.

The Emporia Gazette reports Wolford began losing in June 2011 when she joined Weight Watchers. She weighed 346.8 pounds at her first weigh-in. She reached her goal in April 2013 and has maintained her weight. She now weighs 129 pounds and walks several miles a day.
