Success stories are always great to read. These are the people to admire but, as a rule, they don’t even imagine all the hard work and troubles a person went through before achieving a goal. Nevertheless, such stories motivate and tell us once again that everything is possible.

Gianna Sciortino and her career

This beautiful woman, Gianna Sciortino, is an actress based in New York. She is 20, and despite her young age, she can boast about a lot of achievements both in per personal life and her career.

As to the latter, the woman has played a role of Extra in the movie First Match. She also had the role of Rory in Student Film. These roles brought her success, and the girl doesn’t plan to stop.

From 180lbs to 120 lbs, in 10 months

In her 20s Gianna already knows how it feels to weight 240lbs. She’s gained so much due to her illness, polycystic ovary syndrome. But the actress didn’t have any intentions to put up with the problem. She resorted to more drastic measures.

Gastric sleeve surgery helped her shrink her stomach and lose half of her body weight (120lbs).

Something that has always held me back throughout my life was my weight. It has affected me in one way or another no matter what I do or where I go. I remember just being a little girl and not fitting it. Between the bullying, never finding clothing that looks good, performing etc. I just couldn't take it anymore. I felt like I wasn't living a normal like and was often just sad. There came a point where I looked in the mirror and literally didn't want to walk out of the house. Throughout my life I have done everything that I could do to loose weight. It was an overwhelming battle that I couldn't deal with anymore. I knew I needed to figure out another way to get to get there because I just wanted to be happy. Throughout the last 6 months I have been preparing to receive a surgery that would change my life forever. 2 weeks ago from today I received the Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy. I was so embarrassed and almost ashamed of myself that I didn't want anyone to know. I came to a point where I just didn't care anymore. People are going to talk about you whether you do good or bad. And for those of you who think weight loss surgery is the easy way out, you have no clue what you are talking about. I have sacrificed so much and still do. This is my life and I am the only one who can control my happiness. I am honestly so proud of myself for making this tough decision. I am grateful for the support that I received so far and hoping I inspire more people like myself throughout this journey. I am looking forward to living a long life full of health and happiness. So excited for what my future hold. I am down 40lbs from my highest and 13lbs from my surgery.
