"Transformation Road" takes the reader on the long and often tragic journey of Sean Anderson's battle with food and morbid obesity spanning just about his entire life. His experience with declaring war with himself graphically depicts the tortured soul of most of us who face an addictive and pathological relationship with food. Having won many a battle but inevitably losing his war, Sean offers us some insight as to who the real enemy has been. "Transformation Road" takes the reader away from the typical weight loss fixes and asks the reader to consider the nature of emotional eating and the "symptom" of obesity. The author reveals his "moment of clarity" and the resultant decision to declare a truce with his war with food. What follows is Sean's recipe for food addiction recovery. Although incorporating some suggestions that run contrary to some recovered food addicts, Sean's experiences are worth learning about and considering."  Dr. Marty Lerner PhD.

From the Author:

Excerpt from the opening pages...

Chapter 505

Prelude with the Author

If you've read from page one, then you've covered the reviews (I'm
very thankful for these wonderful words!), acknowledgments (I
hope I didn't leave anyone out), and an amazing foreword by Ralph
Marston. Ralph Marston, The Daily Motivator, in my book, can you
believe that?


But before you go any further, I just wanted to say something.
Let's pretend the two of us have run into one another and you've
informed me you're getting ready to read my book. If we spent a few
minutes discussing what you're about to read, here's what I would say:
This isn't a typical how-to type of weight loss book. I spent my
childhood growing into the habits and behaviors contributing to my
morbid obesity, and then I spent nearly twenty years of adulthood--
near, at, or above 500 pounds. To better understand the dynamics
involved, it was necessary to start at the beginning. This analytical
exploration has been a critical element in embracing my personal truth
and was what I needed to do in order to really break free. Again, this
isn't a typical weight loss book.

If you want, you could skip to the last part of the book and
experience more of a how-to type of explanation. But something
important to remember is this: To fully understand the philosophies
and approach that worked for me, the entire story is relevant. It is my
story, my methods, my way. And you may or may not relate to or find
my approach to be doable for you, and that's fine. We're all different,
yet the same in many ways. One thing is certain, there are many
successful paths to freedom. In this book, you just might find some
similarities between us. And in those similarities, you could possibly
gain clarity toward your own road out of whatever is holding you back
from what you truly desire.

You may have found this book listed under "weight loss," or "selfhelp,"
or "health," because it's about me and my experiences. But it's
not only about weight loss. The recipe for freedom from my food
addiction and compulsive or emotional eating, and the resulting
obesity, is a recipe that can be adapted to fit you and your situation.

When I speak or write about "choosing change before change chooses
you,"
it's certainly not exclusively about weight loss. It's about living
the life you passionately desire and making the choices that put you in
the best position to achieve those dreams.

I've always been a dreamer and I've always been fascinated by
irony. In my wildest dreams, I never once imagined my morbidly
obese life could be turned inside out, and now, the very thing
determined to kill me, has transformed into a passionate desire to
spend the rest of my life shining a light on a road many of us travel.

Thank you for taking the time to read the next thirty-six chapters. I
hope you'll share your thoughts with me afterward when we run into one
another again.

Or just send me an email to sean@transformationroad.com

Are you ready? The next exit is chapter one. Happy travels. . .

Sean A. Anderson

About the Author:

Going against the grain of the weight loss industry, Sean A. Anderson has lost the kind of weight you would expect from a weight loss reality show contestant, but he's never been on such a show.  Still, he's lost more weight than any Biggest Loser TV show contestant, and he's done it and maintained it, in the real world, with real life stress and with real food.  In his debut book, "Transformation Road-My Trip To Over 500 Pounds and Back," Sean takes us along for the ride to and from this monumental weight, and he does it without the typical offerings of a 33 billion dollar a year industry.

Sean Anderson was born and raised in Oklahoma, and now lives not far from where he grew up in Stillwater.  He's a proud father of two daughters, Amber and Courtney. His broadcasting career spans more than two decades, with a "sub-career" as a stand-up comedian, taking him all the way to the stage of the world famous Hollywood Improv and ABC Television's "Jimmy Kimmel Live." 

Today, Sean devotes much of his time writing and speaking about the dynamics involved in his dramatic transformation. His simple, yet powerful call, to "choose change before change chooses you," has resonated with people all over the world, and has become the foundation of this former 500 pound man's passionate new career path.
