At 277 pounds, Cherita feels limited by her large body. A homemaker, Cherita put herself aside to concentrate on her family and gained weight while she was taking care of everyone else. She wants to lose weight, get healthy, and spend the next 50 years fulfilling all the passions she put aside in the first half of her life.
Cherita and her daughter, Victoria Andrews, come from a very supportive and loving family with a history of diabetes, heart disease, obesity, stroke and cancer. They are fiercely dedicated to changing the legacy of their family from one of premature death and disease to one of strength, health, and vitality.
