Transformation of the Day: Kenyata lost 81 pounds. After struggling for a lifetime and making several attempts to release the weight, she decided to have VSG surgery. By adopting healthy eating habits and making time for fitness, she is achieving her goals.
I have struggled with my weight my entire life. Finally, after numerous attempts at dieting, I decided to take control of my life. In March 2021, I had VSG surgery [Gastric Sleeve], which is one of the best decisions I’ve made thus far.
The surgery is a tool. I still have to do the work, and I’m dedicated to reaching my fitness and overall health goals. I have lost a total of 81 pounds, and I’m down six sizes in jeans.
