When it comes to exercise, sometimes it takes a little motivation to get started. In Louise's case, Michael promised her that if she started following a healthier lifestyle, he would get her a brand new wardrobe.

Well, today, that day has finally come.

To celebrate Louise's 38-lb. weight loss, the team at 'Rachael Ray' gave Louise a brand new makeover to fit her stunning, slimmed-down figure. Louise has gone from a size 22 to a size 16!

How did it all turn out? Watch the stunning reveal, plus Michael's special surprise for his mom, in the video above.

You'll be saying "Aww" in no time.
