28 year old mother to a lovely young boy.
Her self confidence has dropped with every kilogram she gained especially after having her beautiful son.
She has been engaged for 5 years now, to the love of her life and father to her son. She has been postponing setting the wedding date because of the weight that she has not been able to lose. She would love to look beautiful in her Wedding dress and to be confident on her wedding day.
Starting weight: 97.5 Kg

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"
Starting weight: 89.3Kg

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.
Starting weight: 81.7 Kg
Current weight 69.4 Kg
Liana has lost 10 kgs within 7 weeks
Busi has lost over 10 kgs within her first 6 weeks

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.
