Caroline Jhingory, a 2005 graduate of the Tulane School of Social Work, says the inspiration for her new book, Half My Size: How I Ate to Lose 150 Pounds, came through her ability to lose weight and keep it off by adjusting to a healthier lifestyle. She also attributes the skills she’s developed as a motivator to her training as a social worker.
It wasn’t until age 22 when she learned she was pre-diabetic that things changed. Through healthy eating, consistent exercise and food addiction therapy, she soon gained control of her size.Jhingory says her experiences with therapy inspired her to attend the School of Social Work. Fast forward to age 32 and she’s a full-time healthy-lifestyle coach, motivational speaker and workout fanatic.
