Mariah Stolfi said that she was “a binge eater” by the 5th grade, and she eventually reached 150 lbs.

The Wisconsin native was also struggling with health issues. She had PCOS when she was young, and she had sleep apnea. “It is extremely difficult to lose weight and maintain weight loss with PCOS,” says Stolfi. “And the lack of good sleep caused me to be lethargic, which meant I didn’t have the energy to work out.

In July 2017, Stolfi decided to undergo vertical sleeve gastrectomy surgery.

She’s down 84 lbs and hopes to lose an additional 60-70 lbs. She’s sharing her journey on social media.

“Once I discovered the weight loss surgery Instagram community I knew I had to be a part of it,” says Stolfi, Who has garnered her more than 14,000 followers on Instagram and YouTube combined.

Her best advice to anyone struggling with their weight is this: “This journey is 80 percent mental and 20 percent physical. If you don’t fix your mindset you will not succeed on your weight loss journey.”
