At first, I was hesitant to attend Katie’s WLS Rock Star workshop, after all, what could she share with someone that had had WLS 8 years ago and is the coordinator for a bariatric surgery program? I knew everything I needed to know about this surgery, right? WRONG!!
I had WLS over 8 years ago and lost 220 pounds. After about 4 years, following an injury that prevented my usual exercising, I started regaining weight; I actually regained over 100 pounds! About a year before attending the workshop, I dedicated myself to losing my regained weight and have lost 70 of those dreaded pounds.
I learned from Katie that many of my techniques were right on the money, but I also learned several new ideas that are proving most beneficial. She gave practical, insightful advice in a humorous and enjoyable manner; I felt like I was spending time with a very wise friend, and indeed, I was! I left feeling recharged and renewed.
Thanks, Katie, for sharing your passion, special knowledge, and inspiration! Should you ever have the chance to hear Katie Jay speak, grab that opportunity with both hands and hang on, you’re going to learn a tremendous amount and have fun doing so!
