It is with extreme pleasure we share this “Sneak Peek” Preview of a Special Program to be aired on TLC! Dr. J. Timothy Katzen and two paitients are featured in the show titled: The Real Skinny Sarah Halbrook is one of the two patients featured, Sarah Halbrook is a Weight Loss Surgery of America Grant Recipient and Dr. J. Timothy Katzen in on the Advisory Board of the WLSFA and a member of the WLSFA Network of Care. Dr. J. Timothy Katzen filmed Sarah as she went through the process of having her Circumferential Body Lift made possible by our WLSFA Grant Program.

Please Tune in March 12 at 10 PM EST!

Like you we have not yet seen the entire show yet! We are hopeful they will share information about the WLSFA, we will ALL have to tune in to see if that happens. Sarah Halbrook and Dr. J. Timothy Katzen are wonderful Ambassadors for our charity and we know this show will be a positive message about the medical treatment of obesity and reconstructive surgery after major weight loss. The WLSFA is the only 501(c) 3 Nonprofit organization funding grants for Weight Loss Surgery and Reconstructive Surgery and it is part of our mission to advocate for these treatments to be available for all insured peoples. Shows like this are a wonderful tool towards that end. Thank you TLC for airing “The Real Skinny” and helping the WLSFA educate people about this type of surgery and for sharing this message of hope to those who have none.

    Sarah is very brave to share this part of her journey. Like many of you I have journeyed along with SarhWillBeSkinny on you tube and she has always been an Honest, Real, Clear light to follow.
    Sarah has made some of the most compelling video I have ever watched and I suggest you subscribe to her you tube channel at and start a the beginning!

        Sarah and her willingness to be so open and honest about all she had gone through with WLS, is simply selfless. SO many times, it was her that kept me going.
