I applaud your intentions and hope that you will be successful. I have been asking myself this question but, by the time an overweight person talks to me, s/he has already decided to make changes.
There is one book that has helped me tremendously in understanding the challenges for obese individuals, and that was the book ‘The End of Overeating’ by Dr. David Kessler.
Hi Joy, I am very interested in reading your article… The only contributions I can suggest to make is talking to a Lifestyle Medical doctors to see if you are able to speak to their patients. Or try hosting a community gathering to have others openly speak on obesity and\or their own experience. And my last suggested would maybe go to a local Jenny Craig place (or something like it in your area) and see if you are able to speak to their clients“? I wish you well on your writing journey!
Hello Joy Keller,
What about talking to those who used to be obese? Wouldn’t they be the most help for you? A person who turned their life around and kept up the new healthy lifestyle would have the most insight, right?
Now, how to find those people? The Weight Watchers groups are run by people who are successful.
I hope this helps you.
