Formerly obese woman is totally unrecognizable in new photos after losing 11 stone to become a model



A formerly overweight woman looks completely unrecognizable after losing 11 stone by overhauling her diet and getting a gastric sleeve.



Monalisa Moura, 33, from Brazil, said she weighed 21.9st at her heaviest and struggled with joint problems.



She told UOL: "I was never thin as a child. But I became morbidly obese in 2014 after my second pregnancy.



"I had postpartum depression, I tried to (take my own life).



"In short, six months after the birth of my second child, I reached 139kg (more than 29st)."







Determined to change her life for the better, Monalisa got sleeve gastrectomy surgery to reduce the size of her stomach to about 15% of its original size.



This operation promotes the feeling of fullness and helps to combat over-eating.Latest Post
