“I would eat when I was bored,” she said. “I’d eat three huge meals a day, and then snack in between. Sad or happy, I’d turn to food for everything.” Standing 5 feet 6 inches, Misty reached her heaviest weight at 300 lbs. “I just sat in bed one night and was like, ‘”I can do this,” “I need to do this.”
