Tarisha A. Had Gastric Sleeve Surgery with Dr. Mona Misra

I love the way I look and feel now. I remember how I looked like before the surgery and how all that extra weight made me feel and that motivates me to improve my health and the quality of my life.

Tarisha A.

Even if the weight loss surgery helps us, we should never think that the surgery alone will fix all our problems. This is just an efficient tool, something that helps us start a major change in life. We have to do the hard work, make the right choices, take the right steps, make the necessary life-changing decisions. This process is never easy. This is a radical transformation, not a quick fix, but the difference between how you looked and felt before and after the surgery will definitely keep you motivated to continue, no matter what challenges may come. My biggest challenge is to make the proper food choices. I lost over 120 pounds, this is a great success for me and I really like the woman I became. I promised myself that I would never go back to the old me and I intend to keep that promise.
