Texas lunch lady loses 100 pounds on cafeteria diet

A Texas lunch lady is 100 pounds lighter after eating her her own cafeteria food every day for a year.

Tammy McRae works at Carver Elementary School in Baytown.

McRae started out as a dishwasher and was quickly promoted to cafeteria manager because of her upbeat attitude.

"I took the job and I initially lost 15 pounds out of nervousness," McRae said.  "I felt so much better after I lost that weight."

So in September 2015, at 260 pounds, McRae decided to ditch her junk diet once and for all, including breakfast donuts.

“I would go to Wendy’s and get supersize everything or McDonald's and get supersize everything,” McRae said.

She started eating breakfast and lunch from her cafeteria menu every single day. One example of breakfast includes fresh fruit and cereal. Lunch options might include broccoli and cheese baked potato, boneless chicken wings or sun butter and jelly.
