Youtube: Jackie\’s Story
Our brave Jackie lost her 400 lbs in about 18 months. . However, she was extremely ill, as we knew from the end of the last program, and although she ends up at a respectable 227 lbs, frankly she looks awful. She lost hair from malnutrition, she had an episode of brain damage, her skin is hanging like she’s wearing flesh colored stockings which are several sizes too large–the only thing with real animation is her eyes. Even at that relatively low weight she seemed to be having problems walking and moving. Since her starting weight of 627 was in August 2004, 18 months takes us to the end of last year so the program seems pretty up-to-date. She also got her panniculus cut off (it weighed 36 lbs!) and had her bypass revised so she wouldn’t be so sick all the time.
