Extreme Weight Loss: Jackie, Highlands Ranch, CO

  • Jackie’s happy and healthy life was shattered when a phone call changed her life
  • The care-giver at day care had shaken her toddler son causing long-term brain damage
  • Between feeling guilty and the emotional trial that put the nanny behind bars, Jackie quickly put on 100 pounds
  • The CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center and Holly Wyatt, MD will help Jackie learn to forgive in order to shed her physical and emotional weight

Dr. Holly’s Insights

The key to Jackie’s success was twofold. First, she decided to stop using food to cover her pain and cope with unforgiveness. Second, she replaced food with positive actions.

Are you an emotional eater? Do you find yourself standing in front of the fridge snacking even when you’re not hungry? Then I’m challenging you to step into those emotions this week and let yourself begin the healing process. Watch my video for more on Jackie’s episode and how you can use it in your own journey:


Go to the Dr. Holly page and share what you’re doing with your emotions instead eating them: maybe it’s going for walk, calling a friend to grab coffee, or journaling what you’re feeling.
