A 600-pound food dependent, remains ensnared in her bedroom and anxious to lose weight.
Dominique Lanoise, is a Haitian born, a single mother of six, and her major objective is just to walk again.
Lanoise’s doctor told her that she is going to die in her bed and this bed is your coffin, said Dr. Oscar Hernandez, who makes a house call.
Despite doctor’s orders to eat healthier, Lanoise is reliant on appetite-suppressing powder, which she shakes over on Haitian food. At one time, Lanoise was close to her target weight, but the enticement of Haitian food that she enjoys so much was too tempting to resist. Lanoise said she don’t want to lie, she cheated, but now and then she feel so hungry.
Lanoise surely believe on the weight-loss powder to work, doc Hernandez said, but she needs to understand that’s not going to be a permanent solution.
Hernandez was saying…“I do need to have a conference with her daughters, make sure they support what we’re doing. I’m not here 24 hours a day.”
