Anchor Kevin Kelly Profiled Rebecca Privitera's story.

We told you she was one of four finalists in the Beachbody contest.

Well...she won the contest and is $100,000 richer -- thanks to your votes.

Before beginning her weight-loss journey, Privitera weighed 381 pounds. That was before she lost 221 pounds.

She says the turning point in her life was when her mother-in-law talked her into doing a 5K race in May 2011.

After being winded and out of shape, she decided to change her life.

she began working out to a Team Beachbody DVD and started shedding the pounds.

She entered the contest and won the grand prize.
