Following a routine check-up with her Doctor in 2005, Bernita Scott Western had to swallow a harsh and heavy reality. Officially clinically obese and diagnosed with dangerous hypertension, she decided to change her life for the better. Having remained skinny, healthy and fit for over six years, her new book is helping thousands of others to achieve greater health, happiness and longevity.
Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/28/2012 -- Being labelled clinically obese is no laughing matter, even though the majority of people don’t do anything to improve their conditions. Weighing 246 pounds in 2005 and determined to throw away her blood pressure medication for good, Bernita Scott Western embarked on a truly remarkable journey of personal change.
Having achieved her goals and remained skinny for six years, she is now sharing her tips, wisdom and inspiration with others who feel the road to recovery is non-existent. In fact, ‘Reach Your Weight Loss Destiny and Keep Your SKINNY Victory!: Stop the Diet and Learn to Live-it!’ could be America’s most valuable book.
“In 2005 she weighed in at 246 pounds and was labeled clinically obese. Not long after she was diagnosed with hypertension. Feeling both defeated and deflated, it was time to live healthy. Many years of eating the wrong foods, lack of exercise and nutrition finally caught up with her. After seeing a research study that 95 to 97 percent of people, who lose weight gain it back, plus more within 2 to 4 years, she was determined to beat the odds.
With extensive research, education, trial and error and nearly 2 years later she loses 96 pounds and is taken off blood pressure medication for good. Keeping the weight off now for over 6 years she has proven statistics do not dictate her future. She shares the real reason for obesity and why many people struggle keeping the weight off!”
A renowned straight-talker, Weston explains where America’s real obesity problem lies.
“America’s obesity problem isn’t with the weight loss industry, it isn't even with food. The problem lies in each of us. There’s a reason the weight loss gadgets, the exercise equipment, the DVD's, the overwhelming food plans, the surgeries, and the drugs are all readily available, but can’t answer the question of why 95 to 97 percent of people who lose weight gain the weight back,” she explains.
Continuing, “With all that we have at our disposal, we’re still the fattest nation on the planet, and we’re growing fatter each year. Weight loss begins in our hearts and minds. It starts with how you think and feel about you, your life and your body. Changing the way you think changes what you see.”
While the weight loss industry remains worth billions of dollars and a horde of celebrity’s line up to endorse often-useless gadgets and weight loss plans, Weston is serious about driving the hard-facts home.
“I’m not a Hollywood celebrity, I’m a living testimony and according to the stats a rare breed. Almost nothing is working! Our nation is dying younger and younger, one pound at a time and it is affecting our children, our health, and our life expectancy. Let us stop losing weight and gaining it back year after year, and spending countless dollars on weight loss. Let’s stop dying young and take control over our lives and the lives of our future generations,” she adds.
Packed with invaluable information on losing the weight and keeping it off for good, Weston’s book is poised to save the lives of many who previously had nowhere to turn.
