Chicago, IL, March 31, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- The feature tells the vital role daily walking played in Laura’s tremendous 130-pound weight loss success story. By making walking her daily form of cardio, Laura lost 130 pounds in 2 1/2 years the old-fashioned way – on her own – and she is now into her fourth year of maintenance. Cutting white starch and sugar from her diet are also crucial components to her incredible weight loss success and as with her daily walking, she continues to follow a low-carb lifestyle.
Five years of being an avid urban walker averaging 48-55 miles weekly has enabled Laura to walk 12,500 miles, or halfway around the globe at the Equator. How many people can say that? Laura can be seen walking daily all over Chicago’s Gold Coast, Magnificent Mile, River North and Downtown areas, most of the time with her two little Italian Greyhounds.
We have a growing obesity epidemic in our country because of politics and ignorance. Laura breaks these barriers and shows people that diets do work; she’s living proof. Then she helps people live an optimal life by raising their awareness of diet and lifestyle choices by showing them how to finally take control of their weight, their fitness, their appearance, their self-esteem and their life.
Laura enjoys an enormous demographic diversity that comes from her ability to communicate - she makes herself clearly understood by anyone and always leaves everybody she meets feeling better about themselves than they did when they first met. Laura gives everyone hope, courage and confidence where there is none. She convinces people that they, too, can do what she’s done - Commit To Get Fit - and she’s there to help.
Younger women and guys look up to Laura because she’s instantly like their cooler, chicer, older sister. Older gals and guys love her because they know she’s not a youngster and they could, with the right motivational coaching, realistically look as good as they want, as healthy as they want, like she does.
Laura’s extensive background in the fashion design and beauty industries speaks for itself. With over 30 years experience as one of the country’s first and top Plus Size designers from 1986-1998, Laura has dozens of personal appearance makeover success stories for women as well as men to her credit. Additionally, she was one of the country’s first and top Plus-Size models from 1980-1988.
An effective motivator and speaker, Laura’s How-To/How I Did It book Commit To Get Fit The Secret to True and Everlasting Weight Loss is now on sale through her website (www.poundbypoundonline.com) and Amazon. She also speaks, and writes motivational articles for newspapers, magazines and an on line group she supports through her informative motivational website.
Ms. Dion-Jones Casey is eagerly looking forward to this national exposure and she hopes that whomever reads her story will be encouraged to walk daily, eat healthier and take action to live a longer, happier, more fit life by going to her motivational website and blog and using her advice as a motivational tool to get themselves moving on a weight loss success story of their own.
