Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
My life was one boring and sulky. I gained weight right after my first pregnacy then it accumulated as i progressed and gave birth to 2 more boys. This affected my self esteem and extremely lowered my confidence level. I started experiencing health related issues like severe migraines, sleep apneas, Knee aches, Leg aches, back aches, Panting, a lot of snoring and all sorts of discomfort. I was unable to mingle well and could even decline attendance for social events
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I reached the rock bottom when my eldest son as me innocently, ‘Mum, your stomach is too big! Is there another baby inside? and please when you go to hospital, kindly bring me a sister because i now have enough brothers.’ and he kept on asking….’ Mum why are you so big? is it because you eat a lot of food? so, if i eat a lot of food will i be big like you? i dont want to be very big, so i wont eat a lot.’ I was tongue tied. This is when i decided that enough was enough.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Fit Milele Challenge help you overcome that challenge?
Doing away with Bread was my biggest challenge. Bread used to be my best friend and my comfort when i am stressed. I even used to eat 6 family pack sizes in a sitting! The program helped me on watching my portion servings as well as eating healthy and based on my calorie bracket.

If you could motivate one person right now to begin their journey to health and fitness, what would you tell him or her?
1. Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going. 2. When a goal matters to a person, that person will find a way to accompllish what at first seemed impossible 3. Energy is the essence of life. You decide how you are going to use it by knowing what it takes to reach that goal and by maintaining focus 4. This is no time for ease and comfort. It is the time to dare and endure 5. It’s not about how to achieve your dreams, it’s about how to lead your life, If you lead your life the right way,the dreams will come to you
