Desiree Mize (aka WokeUpLikeDez) never set out to share her journey to better health with the world, but when she stepped out of anonymity, she became a bariatric community sensation. The DoctorXDietitian duo has a candid conversation with the six-year post-op veteran.
Desiree grew up in a full house run by her superhuman mom, who instilled in her children an unwavering desire to achieve their dreams. When Desiree tipped the scale at 300 pounds, she hit her not-so-magical breaking point and decided to have gastric bypass surgery.
Relatable, funny, and down-to-earth, you can't help but be enthralled by her determination and infectious zeal for life.
With her larger-than-life personality, Desiree tells all as she emotionally recounts both the challenges and incredible achievements of her amazing weight loss journey.
