Jenny likens her excess skin to looking like a melted candle and hopes to one day deal with it if she can afford it. She suffered from extreme hair loss because of the pace of her weight loss and stresses the importance of getting into an exercise routine as soon a possible after surgery. She say’s “one of the things that happened after I had gotten down to a more normal weight was a little bit of sadness about mistreating my body for so long; because my knees are not great; and because your skin is all stretched up. You know, you finally get to the size you want to wear and you look great with clothes on but god forbid you should take them off. And there was a sadness around that.”
