"Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition": obese Jacqui is desperate to lose weight

On Sunday night's episode of "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition" (Sun., 9 p.m. ET on ABC) viewers met Jacqui.

The 30-year-old office worker weighed 355 lbs and was desperate to lose weight and start a family. Her long battle with weight and body image had started when she was raped at the age of 14.

With the help of fitness expert Chris Powell, Jacqui embarked on a year-long journey to fight the flab.

She even quit her job to concentrate on her fitness plan, with the full support of her firefighter husband, Shawn. He said her weight loss journey was "far more important than this particular job."

At the end of a grueling year it turned out that all of Jacqui's hard work was worth it. She had lost a whopping 207 lbs and said she felt like she'd been freed from prison.

New stories of inspiration and struggle are featured every week on "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition," Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
