I tried to take my life -Formerly obese woman now model says after impressive transformation

A formerly overweight woman has left social media users in shock with her new look which is totally different from her previous look 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).”

The formerly obese woman 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 and after the surgery, Monalisa managed to lose a massive 71kg (around 11.2st) in two years by overhauling her diet.

She also took medication and fasted intermittently, which wasn’t sustainable and caused her to relapse and soon went back to binge eating and added five stone back on.

Monalisa, who is now a model, weighs 10.7st and keeps in shape by eating healthily and exercising regularly.

Monalisa now works as a “muse” (cheerleader) of Flamengo, Brazil’s most popular football club, a job that only the best-looking women are ever invited to do.
