• Fat Joke Inspires Woman to Lose 100+ Pounds and Become a Hooters Waitress


    Call it oddly inspiring, but after Cearra Swetman was the victim of a drunkard’s comment about her clothing, she sprung into action. Cearra weighed 250 pounds at the time, and was sporting a Hooters t-shirt. The rude drunk walked up to her while she was dining with her family and proclaimed, “You don’t look like a Hooter’s girl I’ve ever seen.”

    Right at that moment, something clicked for the Florida woman, and she set her mind on two goals: losing all that excess weight…and getting a job at Hooters.  “I didn’t feel attractive, I just felt out of shape and didn’t feel good about myself,” says Swetman, who spent most of the year that followed working out every day and eating a proper diet. By the end of it, she had lost 128 pounds–over half of what she weighed before.

    Cearra now happily works at Hooters while pursuing a master’s degree.

    While no one condones teasing or bullying people, sometimes it only takes one cruel comment in order to motivate someone to turn their entire life around. Bravo to Cearra for setting a goal and achieving it. If people are going to stare at her, I’m sure she’d rather it be for flattering reasons.
