BAYTOWN, Texas (KPRC) – 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.

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

She said she would also eat donuts for breakfast on most days.

Fast-forward to the end of September 2016, and McRae weighs 160 pounds. “I’m a better manager, I make better decisions and it’s not because I’m thinner, it’s because I’m healthier,” McRae said.

McRae said she plans to stick to her diet and doesn’t ever want to go back to her old ways.
