Health issues: emotional disorder; stomach pains
Jobity was always fit growing up, but she turned to food to cope when she was mistreated in a relationship. “I just kind of turned out of the world, and food became my everything.”
By 2015, Jobity had hit her highest weight of 260 lbs and started feeling excruciating stomach pain. Jobity decided to get healthy — mentally and physically. She started taking boot camp classes and sought counseling to deal with her emotional issues. She cut out fried food and soda and focused on a healthy lifestyle.
“You have to fix what’s going on inside before you can fix the outside. The mind is a powerful thing through the weight loss journey, more than anything else. A lot of weight loss is mental.”
