No Kidding! I lost weight of about 20kg (44lbs) and 35 inches at home without going to the gym, drinking tasteless teas, following strict diet, taking any pill or even fasting.

Let me show you how

My Weight Situation

As a mother of two amazing kids that I had via two consecutive C-sections, I packed so much pounds over a five year period. I was almost unrecognizable by friends and families who saw me at my heaviest of 194lbs (88kg). I lost my confidence and was so depressed. My work was physically demanding and my weight was getting in my way of delivering professionally. It looked like my whole world was crumbling before me and my health was deteriorating.

My severe back pain was worsened by a sedentary shift work and my BMI was in the obese region because I was too heavy for my height. I suffered ab separation due to childbirth, my body metabolism was so sluggish and I was getting breathless too quickly for low impact activities. I couldn’t perform my duties as a mum effectively because I could not keep up with the energy of the kids. I looked way older than my spouse who was way older than me and became the biggest in my family. I tried almost everything I saw online but none worked and I got frustrated.

The Turning Point

One day, I decided that all that sorry situation was going to change. I needed to do something drastic before my life vanishes before my very eyes. The turning point was when I looked at a video of myself at a gathering and saw how I looked like a trunkless elephant on two legs. I said to myself “that can’t be me”. My health was also impacted, my blood pressure was threatened and my back pain had worsened to the point of consulting a physiotherapist and orthopedic surgeon. I made a decision to transform my life and began the endless search on the internet on how to go about my weight loss journey especially during a lock-down due to the pandemic.

Guess What?

I was shocked at my findings. I figured out that people who want to lose weight have become victims of different weight loss outfits. The diet companies tell you that no amount of workouts will produce results while the gyms will tell you diets will do you no good. Tea and Pills promoters tell you to ditch both school of thoughts and offer stress free method. The surgeons advise you to stop wasting your time. Who do you believe? The category i found most irritating were some youtubers, those ones drive me crazy. You see things like “lose belly fat in 24hrs”, “lose 15kg in 3 days”, “how to remove double chin in 7 days”, “wrap your belly to lose belly fat overnight” Damn! information overload! I tried some of the tips but found out some were lies and others were not sustainable.

The Amazing Discovery

I had a breakthrough when I stumbled on a weight loss program that changed my life forever. I blessed the day i stumbled on the ad because i found out a fun way to lose weight at the comfort of my own home without gym equipment or outdoor jogging. Since I love to move my body and the program offered a fun way to workout through dance (something light), I dived right in. It cost a few bucks but I decided that a little financial commitment worth the price of a few pizzas would serve as a huge motivation. That really worked for me because being on lock-down at home was enough demoralization and following a free program might not have helped because they lack structure.

The Solution

I signed up for fun workouts and got e-mail coaching on a daily basis. Through my determination and consistency, I lost my first 15lbs in 8 weeks and by the 5th month, I was 44lbs down, 35 inches smaller and currently sustaining my goal weight. I was connected virtually to a highly inspiring coach that shaped my thinking and nutrition. I adapted meal plans to suit myself, so no strict diet for me.

I was introduced to a loving, caring and supportive community of women of different shapes, sizes, races, ages and countries who were on the same weight loss journey and the encouragement and motivation I got was super amazing. We shared our success stories and got answers to all our questions. I had the opportunity of inspiring some women through my transformation story which I am sharing with you today.

This program is awesome. I had to change my entire wardrobe after losing so much weight. I shrunk from a US 10 to 6 and my colleagues could no longer recognise me when I resumed after the lockdown. I feel lighter, better and sharper thanks to this fun program. Glad I took the best decision that changed my life forever.
