How Gastric Sleeve Surgery Changed Angie's Life
Angie Prata’s weight loss struggle began in her early 20’s. Even after seeing herself at her heaviest and accepting the fact that her diet attempts were not working, making the decision to have weight loss surgery was not an easy one for Angie.
Due to her family history of diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease, Angie’s weight put her at a high risk of going down the same unhealthy path of previous family members. Being a wife and mother of three children, this was not an option for Angie.

In June of 2019, Angie reached her five-year anniversary with a total weight loss of 102 pounds.
