Good morning Diva Beauty Team, My name is Maduma Mseleku and below is a piece of my story. Yes I am brave enough to be on camera and show the world me. A recent shock I got when I took the scale, how did I get here? Why did I allow myself to be so lumpy? Than I blamed giving birth in 2016. Deep down I know that it's not that, it's me. I neglected my body and I believe it's time I take control of my appearance. Did a few enquires including emailing your establishment for a quote. Have been thinking of ways to save for the full body treatment whilst trying to eat healthy and admiring the pics you apload on Instagram.Oh the excitement on my face when I saw the recent competition upload, the chance of reaching my dream requires a guts and zero budget...yessss. My soon to be Hubby(lobola next weekend) is planning a trip later on in the year and I might just leave with a bikini ready body(look at God)
Lost 9 kgs within 3 weeks
Started on the 4th of May.
Good Day. I hereby write this letter in response to your Facebook Post.My name is Nthabiseng Ralieshane. I am 31 years of age and I am a mother of one to a wonderful little 4-year-old boy and I weigh 122.85. For about plus minus 20 years now I have been struggling with my weight. Making terrible choices when it comes to food and therefore dreading any form of shopping experience thereafter.
One of the hardest things about being overweight is when I have to go shopping, so many beautiful choices and colours but none that I love fit me. Being overweight has been hell, I’m always tired, always being admitted to the doctor and being given a different diagnosis every time that I go there. Being granted the opportunity to take part in your program would be a life changing experience, it would be an honour!
Weight Loss on Diva Eating Plan within 6 weeks is 12 kgs
Started on the 17 th of April 2019.
Has been removed from the project.
I have decided to make a change in my life, to transform myself physically, spiritually and emotionally. Growing up, I had an on/off relationship with my weight. I would pick up or lose weight so often, it felt like a rollercoaster. There came a time in my life when starting varsity where I just gave up and decided to let it be. I decided to make academics my priority and completely neglected the health of my body. I had unhealthy eating habits and unhealthy social habits. The focus on my academic career took time away from taking care of my body and weight. I ended up gaining so much weight, being the heaviest I have ever been in life. I tried the diets, the different shakes and many more temporary solutions that wouldn’t last long, because what I hadn’t realized was that I needed to commit to a change in lifestyle. It has been so frustrating entering a store and not being able to have a choice of clothing that I want to wear. The plus size sections are dull, and it breaks the budget.
I am now 25, building my career and have made the conscious decision to take better care of myself because I owe that to myself. I would love to join the programme because I believe it’s the guidance I need to transform my lifestyle which in turn will transform my body and allow me to be healthier and more confident. I have started a gym routine to get my fitness on track and having Diva by my side to guide and support my journey, will help me become a better version of myself, realizing my true self. It is a lifestyle change that I want and need.
14 kgs loss so far.
Started on the 26th of April 2019
I’m currently 45 years old. I had my first child at the age of 27. I gained 40kg with my pregnancy but have lost all 40 kg and went back to what I was before (60kg). (See photo attached how I looked after my first child) At 41 years of age I had my second child and gained again 40kg. I have been on numerous diets but I struggle to keep my weight off. I’m not currently very active and I’m tired the majority of the time. As I get older everything sag, gained extra weight around my stomach, arms, legs, buttocks and cellulite on legs, stomach and buttocks. I drink my 2 L water a day and I can see it helps a little bit with the appearance of cellulite. I don’t wear tight tops or shorts and I’m very self-conscious about my body.
I would love to look to regain my self-confidence again and to become active. I know it is a mindset change and I’m ready for it.
My weight currently is 74Kg and I’m 1.72m tall.
Lost 6 kgs within 4 weeks
Hi there, I have been following your page and the journey of Busi and Liana and their results and what they have achieved is amazing I am 36 years old and a mom of 2. With my second pregnancy i gained 28kg. It took me a good 6 years to loose most of my weight, trying quite a few fad diets etc... loose weight, gain weight situation. In Feb this year I was 3kg away from my goal weight of 62kg. All my previous attemps i would find myself reaching 73kg and then just gain it all back.In March 2018 I fell ill and by May i had to have both my ovaries removed, resulting in 7kg weight gain, my body went into shock with the surgical menapause and its been the darkest place i have ever found myself in, in all my life.5 months down the line, i have recovered from the surgery itself but my body and its appearance has dramatically changed and i just hate looking at myself in the mirror. I now have cellulite which i never had before, even at my heaviest of 81kg. My waist line has changed and my tummy has become so big, i walk and my legs wobble, it makes me really sad to see myself now, especially knowing what i looked like just 6 months ago.
Thankfully i have not gained anymore than the initial 7kg in the months of May and June but i cannot seem to loose any of it. I understand that having no ovaries and my hashimoto's disease which I have had for years makes it more challenging but i would love for you to give me a chance and help me prove that my health and obstacles i face everyday doesnt define who i am and a person in my position with help can look and feel amazing about oneself, i can show others that just becuase you have a thyroid disease and find yourself in surgical or natural menapause you can still loose weight, feel good and look amazing I would really love for you to consider my application.

My name is Zanele, I am 25 years old from Midrand. I am writing this email because I need to make a change in my life. I am going to give u abit of my history when it comes to my weight.
I have always been active in my life, played netball and was a latin and ballroom dancer. I never had issues with my weight as a teenager and have always been happy. This all changed when I got to University in 2014, I stopped dancing and stopped playing sports, I gained weight so bad that I looked like a totally different person. This has since made me very antisocial and I hardly take pictures because I hate the way I look... In 2016 I went through a depressive stage where actually thought dying is better than looking like I did(most people dont understand how your weight can cause depression, but believe me it can and its damaging), I have always cared about how I look so this was a real shock to my body and confidence. I tried joining the gym and eating right but I always give up because I kind of find comfort in food, which is something I am trying to fight with all my might.
I have cut ties with most people I grew up with because I dont want to constantly explain why I have gained so much weight, its tiring and emotionally destroying. I believe your program can be a fresh new start for me where I can be in control of my life again, because wow now I feel I have lost all contact with my soul. Attached are photos of how my body changed through the years.
I really hope you choose me to be part of this life changing journey.

Hi, my name is Rose Mkhuma a 28yr old lady who grew up believing that she was ‘the ugly sister’. I have 2 very gorgeous older sisters, they never had weight problems, both very petit and short and I have a younger brother who has always been super skinny and very tall. I on the other hand would like to think of myself as the “black sheep” of the family, I have ALWAYS had weight issues, since primary school I struggled with my weight, I am the only fat child at home, I am very big and very tall lol and people always remind me of how ‘different’ I am compared to my siblings.
It’s funny how I used to be so athletic in primary, I was a top sprinter and I did well in long jump! BUT for some odd reason, I stopped playing sports when I was in grade 4 I think and that’s when the ‘comfort’ eating started. Food became my best friend. I went from being a happy and active child to being depressed and emotional. When I ‘blew’ up, I was teased by my peers, my family and even strangers would comment on my weight but because I didn’t want to seem weak, I’d laugh with them and make jokes about my weight as well, what they didn’t know was that I cried myself to sleep almost every night.
Weight when Rose came to Diva Centre on the 17 .10.2018 was 102.9kgs
Weight on the 1 st of December is 93 kgs
Weight on 17 of January is 86.8 kgs
Current weight 75 kgs
Rose is on Eating plan and started her treatments of Ultrasound liposuction

Hi there, Not even sure why I am writing this, I guess if you feel hopeless you try and look for a bit of hope where you can. My name is Adele and like many others have been struggling with my weight my entire life(or so I thought) not realizing I was actually fine up until the age of 20. I went from 72kg to deep 80s that year with the weight fluctuating with every new diet etc. When I hit 24, my partner and I started fertility treatment and my weight escalated to the 90s. After 7 years of these treatments we finally got pregnant and I had my son(best thing to ever happen). My weight at least at that stage stayed at 93kg. Fast forward 3 months post baby and my weight sky rocketed to 111kg within 3months, went to the dr and was advised that my thyroid was broken and I would need meds for the rest of my life. 8 months later and my Thyroid is under control but the weight has gone nowhere. I realised that I need help, when I saw you FB post I figured I might as well take a chance. I truly hope you are able to help me. Thanks Adele

32 Years Old mother of two beautiful girls.
Soon to be 33 years old Keshia recently got divorced. She is a single mother, from doing the school run to making breakfast, lunch and dinner to taking the girls to extra music and gymnastics. To top it off she has a stressful full time job with targets to meet.
She loves being a mom and her job but with all of what life has blessed her with she feels as though she neglected herself.
As everyone knows having kids changes your body. She went from a bikini body to far from a bikini body.
She has tried to lose weight but never really succeeded!
She wants to start taking care of herself. Being single again is scary for her and so is the dating world. She wants to feel and look healthy and she wants to be confident enough to want to start dating!
Keshia will be a great inspiration for ladies who went through divorce and separation thinking the world has ended now, but as Keshia said :"Well it happens, what can you do, life still goes on"

Her weight journey, has been one for the books. Battling the numbers up and down, up and down up down her entire life. She has been under weight, she has been over weight.
"I was the fat kid and then I was the underweight kid with issues"
In September 2016, her little boy turned 2 years old- she realized that she cannot blame her baby fat on just having a baby anymore.
She started doing Crossfit training and her life has never been the same again. Liana has lost 12 kg to date and her confidence is back after years of feeling sorry for herself and struggling with baby blues.
She has decided to take control after seeing the results, feeling better about herself by being kinder to herself and enjoying( LOVING) exercise. Even in the winter months she is getting up at 04:30 to train.
Liana would like to inspire all the mommies out there to stop blaming pregnancy as a reason for picking up weight.

Busi is talking about her experience with Diva Weight Loss and how she has lost 22 kgs
Mandisa, 24 years old, remembers herself as someone who has been overweight her whole life, but as time went by it got worse.
Mandisa has lost her mother at the young age of 11 and for comfort she has turned to food… As she got bigger her selfesteem got smaller, where there were days where she didn’t want to leave her bed.
At the age of 15, Mandisa lost her paternal grandmother to diabetes and her father to cancer. She felt as if her world was crumbling in. She felt and still feels like no other man would ever love and accept her. She feels every rejection was due to the fact that she is overweight and doesn't look like the rest of her friends with healthier bodies.
She cant go on the roller coaster rides because she is “embarrassed of her body and how those rides hurt when you are on them and there's a bulging tummy pushing on the safety”.
She is a student finally doing her last year with only two modules to graduate. She dreams about graduating in a beautiful dress and to look gorgeous and not to think about health issues that might arise.
Her Dream is to own beautiful lingerie: “Between choosing a trip to the Maldives and loosing weight,I'd choose loosing weight. I mean I'd rather slay the streets of Jozi in a summer body."
Starting weight: 104.1 Kg
Current weight: 89.9 Kg
Mandisa has lost over 12 kgs for the last 6 weeks
36 year old mother of two healthy children.
14 years ago she was in a very serious motor vehicle accident which resulted in 13 bone fractures.
She was in a wheelchair and learned to walk all over again. This affected her life and no longer could she lead the active sports life she once had. This affected her weight and over years it just got worse.
Her legs suffered most of the injuries and her one knee cap is removed. This limits what she can do for exercise. But she pushed her limits and kept going.
Anrika's dream would be to complete an advanced driving course so that she will not fear driving in the rain anymore.
Starting weight: 92.6 Kg
Current weight: 83.7 Kg
Anrika has been removed from the program.
