I’ve always though weight loss was going to be a horrible and stressful experience. I wanted to be healthy, strong, most especially happy for who I was. Don’t get me wrong, someone can be on the plus side and be happy for who they are. But for me it was hard for me to be ‘fat and happy’. When you’re unhappy with yourself and how you look, you would try to change yourself, in order to accept yourself. People would tell me “I like that you are happy with the way you look” and I’ll reply with a smile “Yes I am” but deep down I knew I wasn’t. I started walking for at least 1 hour a day before my friend told me of a final year project on weight loss and I decided to give it a try. We used dance cardio by #keairalashae for the workout and I continued with the workouts even after the project ended. I started my journey in 2019 with 150 kg and 8 months later, I weigh 90kg I think it’s time to hit the gym😁 #teamlashae #keairalashae #fitness

With the help of an Indonesian bodybuilder, Ade Rai and another team of health experts, he was able to lose two-thirds of his body size. Many have hailed his success as a very inspiring one as he posted his before-and-after pictures on his Instagram page that has 350,000 followers. In one of his posts on the platform, he could be seen performing some regimens with his personal trainer as he squats and lift weights. For a boy who had rolls of flesh all over his body and was always looking so tired, this is a very huge success indeed.
