This undated photo provided by TeleTech shows Michelle Ebert, director of a Morgantown, W.Va., center for Colorado Based TeleTech Holdings Inc. Ebert played basketball, volleyball, tennis and softball in high school. But she gained weight after college while building her career with a firm that helps other companies manage customer service, often working 14-hour days. Ebert lost weight twice with a diet program only to regain the pounds later. A new wellness program promoted by her employer prompted her to try again. Two years later, Ebert, 40, has lost 80 pounds, and she no longer needs to take two pills she once took for high blood pressure. (AP Photo/TeleTech)
