A Florida couple is engaged to be married after losing more than 200 pounds and finding each other on a Weight Watchers message board.
McDonald, who lives in Florida, had lost more than 100 pounds. Switzer, who lived in Iowa at the time, had just gone to his first Weight Watchers meeting, the newspaper said.
Switzer said he noticed that his starting weight of 307 pounds was the same as hers had been, and e-mailed her asking for advice. She told him her story and they soon became friends.
After about a month of phone calls and e-mails, he flew to Florida to see her.
"As soon as I got off the plane and saw her, I knew at that very moment that I was going to be with her forever," Switzer told USA Today.
