Jeanne Bice...wheelchair?

I caught the end of a conversation with a caller on the Quacker show and it sounded like Jeanne is in a wheelchair? I didn't know that. Does anyone know why? I thought I remembered seeing her walk before.

she talked to a caller who was using a wheelchair - that's the only thing I heard but wasnt paying great attention.

I heard her too and thought she mentioned something about it, to make me think she uses a wheel chair. It could be she has bad knees and uses one sometimes. I work with someone who has bad knees and uses a cane and sometimes one of those walkers with a little seat attached to it. He can't stand for more than a few minutes and can't have knee surgery until he loses some weight.

Personally, I have never seen her stand and thought it was odd. She seems like a really nice lady.

Jeanne was talking about when Quackers approach her or others, who are handicapped and using a wheelchair or walker, all you see is their beautiful Quacker shirt and the wearers face- not the fact that the individual is handicapped.

I have seen her stand if she is doing one item or a TSV presentation on the morning show. However, most of the time I see her seated.

I know too much to go back an' pretend.

Someone on these boards once mentioned going to a live studio show. Since the studio is so large, Jeanne was brought out on a golf cart so she didn't have to walk the entire distance to the sound stage.

I thought Jill said that she was having a knee replacement this summer.

Please tell us you made that up{#emotions_dlg.scared}

Bice originally lost alot of weight and within months put it back on: she was very clear that her weight loss was inspired by health issues, so the regain was/is disturbing to me. We all know 'tis harder to lose....

Someone posted sometime ago that she was seen in a wheelchair at an airport. She may not be able to walk a long distance. Years ago on many of her Q appearances she did them standing. Now for a long time, they sit at the table.

Yes fllady, I heard Jill say that about her knee replacement also. She has had numerous surgeries over the years, perhaps arthroscopic? I guess she finally gave up on those.

This morning I caught 30 seconds of whatever that show is Leah does in the AM on weekends and Jeanne was standing. No wheelchair. No chair.

Life's a beach!

I know this is going to sound really mean & heartless but with her income level she should be able to have meals prepared for her in such a matter that it is delicious and healthy as exercising until she loses some wt. is probably not feasible. Even have a personal trainer that can assist with some exercise while sitting. I know most of us would be able to have higher success levels if food was purchased & prepared for us and we just had to eat it. Like I said I understand this sounds so mean but she didn't gain that kind of weight over a weekend pig out so the consequences is catching up with her. My S-I-L was over wt. for all of the 20+ years I have known her and until she gave up her bad eating habits her wt. just kept rocketing. Since practicing portion control and not eating "junk food" she has finally lost the majority of her wt. She is not a young girl, she is near 60 so it can be done even if you have been obese since childhood. Her knee are bad and so are alot of other things including her heart so she did is slowly with healthy eating changes... It comes down to determination which I have to believe Jeanne has since it takes alot of it to build a successful & thriving business as a woman of her age.

Even some hosts use golf carts to get around from stage to stage. That place is huge! The wheelchair thing started from a caller who said she lost a leg, used a walker but now is in a wheelchair.

It's not always the weight that causes health issues. I have a couple friends with very serious health issues and both are ideal weight. Also, there are carts to ride in at the QVC studio. I have seen hosts use them....the building is HUGE!!

But you need to research the damage excess body weight/fat can do - it is well documented that obesity causes a huge proportion (if not the majority) of the health problems in the United States.

Unfortunately, it's most likely from obesity; all that extra weight creates a strain on one's joints, among other things.

She is a very sad case.

She obviously has no self control at all - money can't buy you eveything!

The REAL reason has everything to do with OCD; all obsessions, compulsions, and addictions have their roots in anxiety, where the person unconsciously 'medicates' their feelings to temporarily feel better. This a proven fact, and until the individual has an emotional breakthrough, NOTHING will change, unfortunately.

Although you "may" be correct, doesn't it seem like everything today is a "disease" or "addiction" or "syndrom" ??? What ever happened to good old self control and responsibility?

The woman that called in was in a wheelchair not Jeanne! The woman had lost her leg and said how much she loved her clothes. I cannot believe rumors start so quickly on these boards. Not one time did she say she was in a wheelchair.

This morning Jeanne was sitting down selling a summer beaded t-shirt. She looked very tired. Most Dr's will tell you that alot health problems are caused by being overweight, not eating healthy, smoking, needing to exercise etc..... There is nothing mean about it, just a fact.

I agree. This post is mean and heartless, and something that shouldn't have been said. It serves no purpose whatsoever.

I don't have a creative mind so everything I put out here is true. As I said, that is just my recollection of what someone had posted not too long ago.

Alot of big companies use golf carts. Not a strange thing at all.
