South Carolina is one of many states that has an obesity rate of over 30% of the population.

Obesity carries many known health risks that can be life threatening. One such health risk that many obese drivers face is not wearing a seat belt. This was the reality of one such resident when she got pulled over to receive a ticket.

Janette Colantonio was 408 pounds and had not been able to wear her seat belt. When the state trooper pulled her over, it gave her the reality check that she needed to change her life. She started a weight loss journey that has allowed her to lose over 200 pounds in a year and half without surgery or pills.
