Biggest Loser: Kathie Dew


WATERLOO(KWWL) -- If you want to keep up with Kathie Dew, you better be prepared to sweat!

This highly active grandmother of four has discovered the fountain of youth and she is drinking life by the gallon. 

Three extreme exercise classes, a session with a personal trainer, and then she closes her week by literally dancing the night away!

"Dancing has helped with my self-confidence," Dew said.

Ten years ago it was self-confidence that Dew sorely lacked. At that time Dew was married with four children, she was the head of nursing at a long term health facility, and she was 100 pounds heavier than she is today.

"Being overweight makes you tired. You're just tired from doing your regular everyday activities,"  Dew said.

Dew lived an unhealthy lifestyle until her father got sick.

"Dad got sick from cardiac disease. Mom died at 49," she said.

"I'm not the person that I used.. I am the person I was meant to be and it is truly amazing!" Dew said.
