Yet many people, both men and women, don't wanna hear it. It will take their own strokes to get the message across, and even then many will still be in denial.

that's shocking but not surprising

yes sometimes it does take people to have a stroke themselves or something just as drastic before they realise they want to live.

People think they can do what they want, eat what they want and still believe they live a healthy lifestyle - it's only when they start to analyze everything they realise they aren't...these I would say are the people who aren't obese but chubby (like I used to be, well maybe I was a little more than chubby)

then there are of course there are those who are just plain over weight

they know they can't keep going on this way but I've seen so many men and women lost in a sea of resources trying to grab a life line but missing everytime

they go on diets, see nutritionist, you name it they've done it but for some reason it just doesn't click.
