Media personality Sheila Mwanyigha is doing a full life overhaul.
Mwanyigah has been on the trending lists for the better part of this month following her immense weight loss.
The 46-year-old has been hitting the gym hard but surprisingly hasn’t been sharing her weight loss journey until people started to notice her hard work.
Mwanyigah says she’s not on a fitness journey but rather a total life overhaul.
“I am not on a fitness journey because that means you reach your desired target and stop. What I am going through is a life overhaul, a holistic process which is for the rest of my life,” she said.
“My whole lifestyle has changed; what you are seeing on the outside is because of the things that are happening on the inside. It is never something that just happens overnight,” she added.
“I have been on so many different diets. The last intense one I did was about seven years ago and I got good results. But the problem with a diet – and anyone who has been on one would understand – is that it has an end date. The day you finish that diet, everything that you had denied yourself is waiting for you after that,” she explained.
One of the things that sparked her decision was COVID-19 and her age.
“Seeing people I knew die of COVID-19-related complications moved me. And I think one or two of them did not even know they had underlying conditions and by the time they were finding out, they were were dead and buried,” she said.
