Transformation of the Day: Parys lost 46kg/102 pounds. She was constantly tired, very self-conscious, and struggled to get out of bed in the morning. By walking for exercise, eating high-protein meals, and adopting a new mindset, she has truly transformed.
Those who know me personally know that I have been overweight for a good while. It’s a common struggle for a lot of people. The pandemic didn’t exactly help the situation, with everyone being under lockdown. I mean, let’s be honest, the only thing we could do is work, sleep, eat, and repeat!
I have struggled with my weight for such a long time, tried to lose weight many times, and often failed due to my impatience and the fact that I love fried chicken, lol. I need you guys to understand I was someone who literally couldn’t get out of bed in the mornings. I was constantly tired, and I used to breathe so heavily. Don’t get me started on clothes! I never stepped foot in a gym because I was so self-conscious and felt intimidated anytime I went. Being overweight generally made me feel like CRAP!
With hard work and consistency, I have lost 46kg (more than 7 stone!! That’s a child’s weight!) I can’t stress enough how much my life has changed, not to mention how much my health, physical appearance, and mindset have improved.
I don’t have many achievements in life; however, I hope to inspire someone out there and show that weight loss is achievable. Honestly, if little old me can do it, ANYBODY CAN!

What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far?
I’ve learned to pick faith over fear. The only limit is our minds. Once we learn to love our bodies, our bodies will love us back.
What advice would you like to share with women who want to lose weight?
If I can do it, I have faith that you can. I am living proof that it is achievable.
