When you get pulled over by the police, usually you worry about getting a ticket and losing money.

But for one woman, it was a wakeup call.

And she lost a whole lot more.

Police pulled her over in March of last year because she wasn't wearing a seat belt.

Turns out she couldn't click it because she weighed over 400 pounds.

So she changed her life and since then, she’s lost 200 pounds.

Janette is still trying to lose more weight and hopes to motivate people through her Facebook page.
