‘GMA’s’ Tory Johnson Makes the ‘Shift,’ Losing 72 pounds in 20 Months

“Good Morning America’s” Steals & Deals guru Tory Johnson had a wake-up call in December 2011. One of her bosses told her the clothes she was wearing weren’t doing any favors during her TV segments. She got the message. This morning, Johnson revealed that since that wake-up call, she’s lost 72 pounds. She writes all about it in her new book, “Shift: How I Finally Lost Weight and Discovered a Happier Life.” It’s out today.

An emotional Johnson recalls, “being fat when you don’t want to be fat, it’s like being in shackles it’s like being in a prison you can’t escape. You feel like there’s no way out.”
