Nowadays, there are many more obese or overweight people than at the time of our grandparents. In fact, obesity is a serious chronic disease that can attack a person's joints, breathing, sleep, mood and general energy. In addition, people who suffer from it have a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease, 2-type diabetes, cancer and psychosocial problems.

The causes of obesity are complex and come from a variety of interrelated factors that revolve around genetics and lifestyle. Overweight is not just an aesthetic detail, and can seriously affect a person's quality.
Janine Mueller, 55 years old and originally from the city of Seattle weighed over 305 kg. Since she was young, she had had weight problems.
Janine was adopted when she was only 2 months old. At the age of 3 years, she was put on a diet and then the next year, she was prescribed drugs to make her lose weight.
She remembers this period:
When I was 4 years old, the same pediatrician decided that it would be a good idea to put me on slimming pills ... that's when things started to escalate, because this drug had the same effect as amphetamine. I was a child of 4 years under speed, and my life has never been the same since then.
Such drastic and unhealthy measures were first launched by the adoption agency, which warned its adoptive parents about the obesity of its biological mother.
Janine remained motionless for almost 10 years, until she finally sought the help of Dr. Younan Nowzaradan and appeared on the TLC channel show My 600lbs Life [My life at 250 kg]. After fighting for 2 years against her obesity, she had already lost more than 90kg and she was accepted for gastric surgery.
Today, Janine has lost more than 195 kg and is moving in a walker instead of her usual scooter. She revealed her mind-blowing transformation into one of the episodes of My 600lbs Life, with his new boyfriend Doug at his side.
She also shared her progress on Facebook, impressing her fans with all these positive changes. One of the netizens commented:
