I was personally looking for a book to help me through my unique challenges in dealing with my hubby’s obesity and I could not find one. I was Inspired by God to tell my story as well as a call of action from Toni Morrison quote “If there’s a book that you want to read but hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it” …. the result “Thru Thick and Thin.”
What do you want readers to take from it?
This book will give tips on coping with a loved one’s obesity and will tell the stories of others who have gone through the same challenges. And most of all it is informative not only to the supporter but to the person who suffers from this disease.
What’s next for you?
I have a book signing event coming up in January with my sorority Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. I am currently developing an online curriculum to help those family members cope with living and loving someone who’s challenged with their weight. I’m finishing up my credentials to be a certified bariatric coach and lastly, my hubby, Dr. James C. Rosser Jr and I are collaborating on a book about obesity.
