From the Newark Star Ledger:

Today Vasti Cedeno will leave for Fort Jackson, S.C., to start nine weeks of Army boot camp….  When two of her mentors were killed while serving in Afghanistan, she decided her “life’s mission” was to join the Army. But even with her mind made up, her body kept her down. Cedeno weighed nearly 275 pounds….

Cedeno turned it around. Through diet and exercise, the Emerson resident dropped 112 pounds in a year!

Robert Sciarrino/The Star-Ledger. U.S. Army soldier Vasti Cedeno dead lifts 155 pounds as she works out under the supervision of Steve Macioci the owner of Crossfit Ignite, a garage/gym in Westwood. Cedeno, who is 27-years-old, lost 112 pounds so that she could join the Army.
