Ramona Holloway was never high school skinny. In fourth grade, she said, she weighed about as much as some adults.
“I was a chubby kid who turned into a chubby adult,” recalled Holloway, co-host of the Matt & Ramona radio show, which is broadcast from the west Charlotte studios of 107.9 FM, “The Link.”
After a lifetime of dieting, in mid-January, Holloway bucked the strong advice of some of her family members and underwent gastric bypass surgery. But if you think the procedure was all about vanity, she said, you’d be wrong.
