99-Pound Weight Loss with Gastric Sleeve


(piano music) – My name is Jodi Jay and I
had the gastric sleeve surgery in December of 2016. [What made you decide to
have weight loss surgery?] I was looking for something that would be a lifelong change for me. I had made a change in my
personal life, I adopted my son. And being a single parent I
wanted to make a healthy choice and to do something that
would give me an opportunity to stay around and be with
him as long as I could. So I made the decision to speak
to my primary care physician who agreed it was time
for me to consider it and I went from there. [How much weight have you lost?] I have lost 99 pounds, I will
not give myself the hundred because I never got
there, I lost 99 pounds. And I have done a really
great job after two years of keeping it off. [What is your advice to others
considering weight loss surgery?] I think that you have
to be emotionally ready because, I know I ate emotionally, I ate to feed my feelings. And after the surgery,
you physically can’t eat. And so there is that emotion that you actually start to work through. [To learn more, visit
