"I wasn't plus-size," the View alum told the Today show. "I was morbidly obese." Taking matters into her own hands, Jones went for a bypass operation in 2003 to save her life. As a result, the TV personality dropped from a size 26 to size 6 and dropped 160 pounds in 3 years. To maintain her weight loss, she started to exercise regularly and improved her eating habits.
