DETROIT — Loretta Moore looked at herself in the mirror one morning and didn’t like what she saw.
“I was ridiculously overweight,” Moore said. “I couldn’t get into most of my clothes anymore.”
Standing 5-feet-4, Moore weighed 252 pounds.
That image was all it took for Moore, 56, of Detroit to start walking regularly.
It took a funeral for Jodi Davis.
At the funeral of a relative, she watched as the woman’s son cried at his mother’s casket. The woman who had died was in her early 40s.
