However with time, she started losing more than she hoped hence having the ballon removed for good and replaced that with gym work out sessions to help tone and sculpt her body.

I realised that my body would shrink and I might not look like the same person. I would not look nice. I talked to them and they told me after a month they would incorporate movement and change my diet so I don’t end up losing so much and look saggy.
