A&E's "Heavy" star inspires Wilmington women to lose weight

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – "Get fit" was the message Thursday night as Debbie Daniels, from A&E's weight loss show "Heavy," talked to a group of women at a gym in Wilmington.

Daniels spoke at "Fitness Motivation" to a support group of women who want to lose weight.

WECT featured Daniels in a story earlier this year, but she didn't want to go on camera Thursday night, as she's saving her big reveal for a future story.

Anita Harrell is the gym's owner, who also talked to the group.

She says putting weight loss on your list of New Year's resolutions may not work as well as wanting to work out without prior to that.

Harrell says having a support network also helps with weight loss.
