For Elizabeth Alteri, her weight loss journey has been a long one, but one that she is tremendously proud of.

The 29-year-old Ellsworth woman has lost 110 pounds over the past year and changed her life in so many ways.

Alteri decided to get fit after giving birth to her second son last year, and has achieved great things. She's been eating healthy, hitting the gym seriously, running, training for a half marathon and even become a leader with Weight Watchers of Maine.

I had the opportunity to speak with Alteri about her weight loss journey. Here's what she had to say.

What's the next notch in her belt? Alteri will be making an appearance for a short segment on the Rachael Ray Show. She and her husband Philip both recently flew to New York for the taping of the show and a complete makeover.

Now, I should mention that Alteri is no stranger to television. She attended the New England School of Communications in Bangor, graduating in 2007.

The Rachael Ray episode she will be on will air on Monday, April 21st. Tune in and check it out!
