Angela weight loss surgery – How did the 90 day Fiancé star shed the pounds?

On Wednesday, July 28, 2021, Angela posted a picture on Instagram highlighting her recent weight loss transformation.

Back in March, Angela revealed that her weight loss came after undergoing liposuction, a gastric sleeve procedure and a breast reduction.

“I noticed when I went to Nigeria last time, I was just putting on weight,” she told Us Weekly. “I mean, like, I think I gained 20, almost 25 lbs. And it just hit me all at once.

“I couldn’t even walk in the grocery store with the kids to get groceries. I was out of breath.”

Angela revealed to the media outlet that she thought she would die if she didn’t lose weight.

“There’s benefits behind doing it for myself because it also benefits the grandkids being around me longer and [Michael] and I being together longer,” she explained. “I did it for myself to stay alive … and [to] benefit the ones I love.”

What have fans said about Angela’s weight loss?

Following her drama during the season 6 Tell-All, many fans have since bashed the realty TV star for her weight loss, saying that it had nothing to do with health and everything to do with appearance.

“Angela keeps hollering about she had the weight reduction surgery because she had trouble breathing… Never crossed her mind to stop damaging her breathing apparatus (lungs) by inhaling cigarette smoke 10,000 times a day, huh?”  one used posted on Reddit.

Another fan added in: “Her initial reason for surgery was to look sexy for Michael. That’s what she told him. After consulting with the doctors, she learned it was going to help her breathe. That became her new reason,” adding in that “fame has gone to her head.”

Other fans commented that while she might have a new look, it does not change her “ugly” personality that is displayed on TV.
