‘The Weight Is Over: My Battle with Obesity’ by Eric Johnson

UPDATED (EVENT MOVED FROM ROCHESTER HILLS TO COMMERCE): Author, Eric Johnson will be conducting a “Meet and Greet” on Friday, March 31, 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m, at Kroger grocery store located at 47060 Pontiac Trail, Commerce, MI 48390.

The obesity rate in the United States is nearly 42%, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Black adults have the highest rates of obesity, with nearly half earning that title. In his inspiring, heart-wrenching, and challenging memoir The Weight is Over: My Battle with Obesity, Eric Johnson shares his rousing story of his fight against obesity.

Like many people looking to change their lives, Johnson found himself pushing forward only to be pulled back, cutting off weight then gaining it back. He details his life as an African American man weighing in at over 500 pounds. He was mistreated, disrespected, cast aside, and alienated. His weight made him sluggish and society’s view of him was enormously discouraging. But through years of dedication, perseverance, consistency, and hard work, he was able to change his life around.

It wasn’t just the loss of 385 pounds that changed Johnson’s life – it’s his entire lifestyle and mentality that differ now. Real change can happen, and Johnson proves that. In The Weight is Over: My Battle with Obesity, Johnson walks us through how it happened for him.
