Chasity didn’t struggle with her weight until she hit her 20s. “I got busy with my family life and career, and I basically stopped bothering to take care of myself,” she said. Eventually, the number on the scale was reading nearly 400 pounds.
And yet, she continued to live life as she always had.
It wasn’t until the birth of her third daughter that things took a turn for the worse. Chasity received some news that could only described as a wakeup call.
“The doctors found that I had a 50% clogged artery,” she said. “I had to make a decision about life, and if I wanted to be around to see my children.”
She had to make a change, one that would ensure she’d live a long life and see her daughters grow up. Her doctors suggested weight-loss surgery, and Chasity opted for a gastric sleeve operation.
“The sleeve was the immediate fix,” she said. “But it wasn’t the long-term fix.”
The long-term-fix turned out to be dieting and daily exercise. Over the course of seven years, the determined mom lost 165 pounds — half her body weight!
She went on the Rachael Ray Show to tell her story, and Rachael herself was in disbelief when she saw Chasity’s transformation!
