Not even a year after her first appearance, Stacey appeared on The Oprah Show for its second anniversary in January of 1988 to give the audience an update on what had happened since her first show: Stacey had lost 170 pounds!

"Miracles took place in my life," she said. "I was able to get into a recovery program and get help for my disease."

In addition to dropping the weight, Stacey told Oprah that she also had a brand new outlook on life. "I [used to live] my whole life for the day I became thin, and I'll no longer do that," she said. "My obsession with food is now gone."
