Columbus, NE (AP) - Two Nebraska sisters have been supporting each other as they dieted and exercised their way to a combined weight loss of 270 pounds.
Forty-nine-year-old Kathy Ladehoff, of Columbus, is overjoyed by her loss of 160 pounds over the past year. She told the Columbus Telegram that's she finally living, "not just existing."
Ladehoff's 44-year-old sister, Wendy Konz, of Genoa (jeh-NOH'-uh), weighed 335 pounds at one point. She's lost 110 pounds and has dropped from a size 26 down to size 16.
To drop the weight, they exercised, changed their diets and eating habits and took a weight loss supplement.
Their mutual goal is to reach 150 pounds.
