Joy Self is now a lot slimmer than she used to be. It was 10 years ago that she first noticed she was putting on weight.
Year after year, she put off going to the doctor until her mid-section grew to the size of a beach ball. Initially, doctors thought it was a hernia, but it turned out it was a benign ovarian tumor.
Doctors carefully removed the tumor, which weighted a whopping 56 pounds.
