On the Road with Freedom from Obesity

Karen Warren Locklear, author of Freedom from 

Obesity: Unlock Your Combination to a Healthy 

Weight, has coached hundreds of people to life-
changing weight loss. As a person who fought 

and won a 40-year personal battle with obesity, 

she knows first-hand the struggle and heartache 

her clients have gone through in their journey to a 

healthy and sustainable weight. 

After graduating from Oklahoma State University 

in 1987 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Home 

Economics Education, Karen taught life skills 

classes on the Navajo Reservation for two years,

clinic in Mangum, Oklahoma, with patients who 

travel hundreds of miles for their help.

including starvation diets, all without success. And 

although she was able to help many other people 

lose hundreds of pounds, she saw that many of 

those people were soon back at their old weight. 

But Karen never gave up, and with time and 

determination she discovered the key to permanent 

weight loss for herself and others. She has dedicated 

herself to sharing that key with everyone who needs
