Weight Loss Story: Ariel lost 135 pounds with gastric sleeve weight reduction surgery and went from a size 28 to a size 18. Here is what she shared with us:
Hi, I’m Ariel. I went from 355 pounds and a size 28 to 220 pounds and a size 18. My weight loss took two years and four months after I decided to have gastric sleeve weight loss surgery. The motivation that helped me make a change was the health problems I was having, such as high blood pressure and heart problems. I was also on the verge of being a diabetic. I changed my eating habits by cutting out sodas, sweets, fried food, and by having smaller portions. I also started eating more healthier foods and baking or boiling any meat I eat. Exercise wise, I also started to workout, walk 4 miles every other day and complete squat workout challenges.
