The turning point in Janet Johnson's life came in the middle of an unforgettable night when she woke up to a feeling feeling dizzy and faint. After being rushed to the hospital, doctors told her she had had a minor stroke as a result of her excess weight.
"That was a terrible wake up call for me, that is when I knew I had to do something. The doctors also advised me to get involve in a fitness program ASAP," she told Tribune Health in a recent interview.
"The only thing I could have afford at the time was exercising and prayer. In the process, I dropped a few pounds but I also knew I needed more than that. When the information about the L ...

A lawyer has called on officials to eliminate cell phone access for prisoners.
Elsworth Johnson was motivated to speak out on the issue after he learned of an incident where a member of the public received a threatening call from an inmate.
Johnson said that prisoners use the devices to intimidate witnesses, abuse members of the public and pervert the administration of justice.
" I was filled with rage that such a coward and many others like him are permitted on a daily basis to conduct their affairs with impunity," he said. "Here I am in New Providence, unable to communicate with my family in Cat Island in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, and prisoners seem to be able to communicate better than I can."
National Security Minister Tommy Turnquest told Parliament recently of plans to purchase a cell phone jammer.
He said, "The unauthorized use of cell phones within prisons continues to pose a serious challenge, and my ministry is determined to find a more effective means of curtailing their use. In this regard, we are seeking the installation of a cellular telephone jammer to selectively block the use of cell phones within the prison compound by persons who are unauthorized to make use of them."
Prison officials confiscated 240 cell phones from inmates at the prison between January to May this year.
Smuggling contraband is a lucrative business. Former inmates told The Nassau Guardian recently that they have paid from $200 to $1,000 for cell phones. According to those inmates, prices differ depending on the inmates' relationship with the guards, the type of phone and their location in the prison. An inmate claimed that guards allegedly kept his phone overnight and charged it to reduce the chances of it being confiscated in a raid.
News reports have documented incidents where inmates at the prison have used the devices to intimidate witnesses, plan escapes, orchestrate crimes and even order hits.
A man accused of murder reportedly had a bail application denied after prosecutors alleged that he had contacted an eyewitness and promised that she would be the victim of a 187, the street code for murder.
However, some inmates said not everyone with an illegal cell phone uses it for a sinister purpose.
"Everyone doesn't have a phone to do foolishness. Sometimes you just want to contact your loved ones," an inmate said. "If we had phone access like a prison in (a) foreign (country), they could monitor the conversations."
In a prior interview, Turnquest said guards could face dismissal or other disciplinary sanctions if caught smuggling phones. Inmates found with phones could have time added to their sentences or face further criminal charges if it is found their phones were used to commission an 'egregious criminal act."
Turnquest said the government was committed to eliminating cell phone usage at the prison. Officials purchased a cell phone jammer following the murder of Cpl. Deon Bowles during a prison escape in 2006. However, the device blocked phones outside the prison compound, which is located in a residential community.
A police investigator told an inquest into Bowles' death that inmates had given him the names of guards responsible for smuggling contraband.

A month and a half ago, D'Shon Taylor started his journey, in search of netting a four-year scholarship to attend college abroad. The 6'6" forward was hoping he could impress coaches with his ball handling, shooting and rebounding skills.
After visiting three institutions and playing in jam packed gymnasiums, where college scouts could see him, Taylor 'banked in' that game-winning shot. On Wednesday evening, he signed a national letter of intent with the John Brown University (JBU) Golden Eagles in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. He will join the men's basketball team this fall.
"I came on this tour hoping to improve and secure a scholarship," said Taylor. "We played a few games, visited some schools just to get a feel of what college life is all about. It just so happened that John Brown heard of me after one game. They asked me to come in for a workout. They had expressed interest but really based their decision on my performance. When we were done, they pointed out a few things, so that was the start of our relationship.
"I am really excited but was more nervous about making the decision. I did my research and based my decision on the school's records and the workout we had that day. I think that the new relationship will assist with my game. I am looking forward to starting, and growing with the team. It is going to be an exciting journey and I am ready for it."
Taylor is a recent graduate of R.M. Bailey Senior High School. He led the R.M. Bailey Pacers to a Government Secondary Schools Sports Association (GSSSA) title and a Hugh Campbell title in 2011. It is reported that Taylor averaged 23 points, 10 rebounds and five assists during his senior year in Pacers country.
"We are so excited to add D'Shon to our program," said men's basketball Head Coach at John Brown University Clark Sheehy. "We feel like he has the academic background as well as the athletic ability to be a real asset to our program. We are looking forward to getting him here next fall."
The Golden Eagles play in the National Association of
Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) in the Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC). Their season is in full swing. The team has an overall win/loss record of 21-5.
Taylor said: "I think I can bring a lot of athleticism to the team. I can handle the ball and shoot pretty good, as well as play defense. I am very humble so I know that I can bring a positive winning attitude to the team. I want to be able to help the team out in any way possible. I look forward to working and playing with them. I want to grow with their program. I appreciate them for taking the time out and making this investment in me. I know through the help and grace of God, family and friends I will succeed. I owe it to my family to work hard. None of this could be possible without their help. I would like to thank my mom, Olga, and all those who gave me advice. The journey for me has just started and I know the future is bright."
Taylor is expected to major in electrical engineering. He will return home in a few days. Training will continue for him during the break. The 19 year-old is the nephew of former national volleyball team standout Cora Hepburn and brother of current national team member Davia Moss.
The infancy narrative in the Gospel of John is distinctly different than those found in the Synoptic Gospels. His account of the birth of Jesus is not in the narrative style of Mark, Matthew and the Lucan account. In his rendering of the incarnation John writes: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
