Terri used to consider herself an emotional eater who ate when she had a bad day at work or got into an argument. She comes from a family where food is very important and loves to cook for herself and others.

She is worried about her 10-year-old son Tony, who is already overweight and snacks after Terri goes to bed.

Her weight affected her love life until she met Charles, who "sees what's on the inside." They are engaged and Terri hopes to lose the weight before their wedding.
