Bianca lost 106 pounds and is an advocate helping women who have had weight loss surgery and working to remove the stigma associated with having weight reduction surgery.
Hey, I love your page and I love the healthy lifestyle you guys promote for black women. I myself have lost 106 pounds, going from 300 plus to now 196. I have dedicated myself to helping others (especially chicks like myself ) increase their awareness on options for weight loss. I chose gastric bypass weight reduction surgery. Now, my goal is to promote awareness about surgery in order to stop the stigma and misconception that is attached to the process especially among black women (i.e. the Star Jones syndrome).
When I did my research for surgery there was no one that looked like me on the weight loss surgery websites. Also, many of those who had gone through it were more comfortable pretending that they didn’t than admitting to surgery. My mission is simple: to let people know that even though the surgery helps lose weight you still have SO much work to do afterwards in order to keep the weight off. I started a blog and support group called S.I.S (Sisters in Surgery) I’d love for you to check it out: sistersinsurgery.blogspot.com
Keep up the dope work!!
