At the brink of turning 40, Corinne says she's the heaviest she's ever been—198 pounds. "I have had a bad back, bad knees, arthritis, but after watching your program ... I decided that they were all excuses for my underperformance in not making myself a priority," she says. "I was so inspired by your program that I decided to take action now. Thank you for reigniting my flame."

This London resident has saved her seat for Oprah and Bob Greene's weight loss webcast at 9/8c on Monday night and Skypes in to share her aha! moment with Oprah. "I think it's you actually saying that you don't like exercise," Corinne says. "I thought you don't like doing the exercise, but you did it. I need to do something for myself."

After watching Oprah's confession, Corinne says she immediately found a Soca dance and aerobics class in her area. "I like to dance. I can exercise to it, so I did my first aerobics class in four years on the same day," she says. "I felt great when I was doing it actually, which I was quite surprised. And I think that's why for me the thing is doing it to music that I enjoy that I forget about the exercise."

With her weight loss fire burning bright, Corinne has already attended two Soca classes and says she's starting working out on a Pilates machine. "After being on this, all my family, they're going to say to me, 'You can't be on Oprah and not stick to your word,'" she says. "So I'm definitely going to do it!"
