062 I Have a Disease


This episode is a quick update telling you about a video I produced called “I Have a Disease; It’s Called Obesity.” The video won the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery “It Starts Now” video contest!

In this episode I tell you a little bit about how I came to write the script, why, who helped me make it happen, and the amazing fact that the video was the first place winner of the “It Starts Now” video contest!

Never forget, I believe in you,

Reeger, I just this afternoon learned of your podcasts. Thank you!

I just watched your video, it was powerful. When Nikki said, “I am done with blame, with shame and with judgement…” it literally brought tears to my eyes.

As of today I am 14 days away from having sleeve gastrectomy. I have felt prepared but today I feel even better about having wls after listening to episode 56 knowing that science supports that I am not lazy, that trying hard just won’t work for everybody, that I need extra help to fight this disease. Thank you again.

Hi Julie, Thank you for reaching out and letting me know you like the podcast and the video. I agree, Nikki’s moment in the video is one of my favorites! I am thinking of you as you journey forward! You will always have community here. Kindly, Reeger
