Cearra Swetman, a woman from Southwest Florida, is in the news today for losing HALF her body weight after a stranger said something rude to her. A year ago, she was having dinner with her family and wearing a Hooter's t-shirt. Apparently, a stranger approached her and said, "You don't look like a Hooters girl I've ever seen."

"I didn't feel attractive, I just felt out of shape and I didn't feel good about myself," she told WFTX Fox 4.


Swetman, who was 250 pounds at the time, snapped and took action. She began changing the way she ate and working out. Within a year she'd lost 128 pounds....and landed a job as a Hooters waitress!

Have someone ever said something insulting that actually motivated you? Would love to know your thoughts!
