Lori Sweeney  

Author, Weight Loss Expert; Titled "The Biggest Winner" by Oxygen Magazine

Oxygen Magazine titled Lori Sweeney “The Biggest Winner,” and her story greatly supports that. Lori is an author, scientist, professor, and tutor who has mastered weight loss by designing a system to overcome obstacles that impede a healthy lifestyle. She lost 125 pounds in three and a half years the slow, smart way, and has maintained for over 5 years. Her story, along with her system, are featured in her book, Goodbye Fatness, Hello Gorgeous!

Lori was an overweight child who was mercilessly bullied as a result. Her weight increased as her self-esteem decreased. Lori turned to food for comfort and went from overweight to obese. A major car accident led to two knee surgeries and more weight gain. At this point, she had a broken soul and physical limitations. She couldn’t keep up with her toddler or join the family in simple activities. She could no longer find her size in a clothing store and had to resort to special ordering from catalogues and the internet.

With all the courage she could muster, Lori got in the right mindset and was able to tackle healthy eating obstacles. She listed triggers and situations that caused her to overeat and paired them with solutions. Lori persevered and continues to do so. She does talks concerning empowerment, bullying, healthy eating, tips/tricks for weight loss, and how to eat healthy/be fit in the workplace. She is known to tailor talks to specific or broad topics that a client desires. She does talks at workplaces, libraries, and other venues. In October 2015, Lori did a TEDx talk: From Bullied to Bold , now on YouTube. She looks to do future talks, but is also looking to do endorsements for products with great value.

Her story has been featured in several newspapers and magazines. Some publications include Oxygen Magazine, First for Women, Woman’s World, Costco Magazine, The Star Ledger, and Asbury Park Press. She has been in publications from the U.S. to the U.K. and has been featured in stories on the internet (shapefit.com). HHRS, a NJ group that focuses on health and fitness, awarded Lori the title of Woman of the Year 2015. She has a website: www.goodbyefatness.com as well as a Facebook page that offers weekly tips every Sunday: Weight Loss Problems and Solutions With Lori. Additionally, Lori has modeled on The Rachael Ray Show.

Lori lives in Hillsborough, NJ with her husband and son. She currently runs her tutoring business and gives motivational speeches to empower and inspire.
