Katie Jay Goes From Weight Loss Surgery To Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb

Filed under: Health — @ April 3, 2009

Katie Jay was “dying to change” and is now living the low-carb life

When someone gets to be so obese that they feel helpless, hopeless, and fearful that they will never be able to overcome their weight problem no matter what they do, the realization that something drastic like weight loss surgery is the only answer starts to sink in. If we’re honest with ourselves, all of us who have dealt with being fat have had this cross our minds. While most of us chose to start livin’ la vida low-carb and found our answer, that’s not the way it is for everyone. Today, I speak with a woman who decided to have weight loss surgery and is now realizing low-carb will help her keep the weight off for good!

In Episode 241 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from Katie Jay, author of Dying To Change: My Really Heavy Life Story, How Weight Loss Surgery Gave Me Hope for Living and founder of the National Association for Weight Loss Surgery (NAWLS) which is dedicated to supporting people who have had weight loss surgery. A few months ago, Katie joined my “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Discussion” forum to learn more about the healthy low-carb lifestyle. Despite having the weight loss surgery, she realized that low-carb was something she needed to do. In today’s interview, you’ll hear Katie talk about her weight loss journey, what she knew about low-carb living before she had weight loss surgery, the work she is doing with her NAWLS organization, and what she has planned for sharing about her low-carb progress with her members. If you’ve had weight loss surgery, then you need to hear what Katie Jay has to say!
