Jolene Hale is the founder of Ketonian Korner, another successful keto podcast.
Jolene is currently 45 years old and has struggled with weight her whole life. She started out as a chubby baby moving into a pudgy child then on to a chunky teenager and finally landing at a morbidly obese adult.
In April of 2014 (first pic), she was at her heaviest weight – 264 pounds, size 22 and 5’3”. She had been diagnosed with prediabetes and went into denial. Jolene refused to take medicine, because she didn’t want “to be diabetic”. Six months later the Dr. informed her that she had full blown type 2 diabetes and need
ed to take the meds.
Again, she refused and realized this wasn’t going away on it’s own and she needed to do something. In December of 2014, she made the decision to make a change.
