1. Elvina Ibru

Nollywood actress, Elvina Ibru, lost a DRAMATIC amount of weight. In fact, the first time I saw Elvina on screen was in The Bling Lagosians so when I saw this picture of her before the weight loss, I was SHOCKED. Talk about a transformation.

Speaking about it to The Nation, Elvina said:

It was not really about being prettier or being more beautiful that I lost weight. It was more about my health. Though I never had health challenges attached to my former weight.At my biggest, I weighed 210 kg and I am 5 feet 11.

That is a very large person! But I didn’t have ailments like diabetes, cholesterol or hypertension except for the small ache at my back. I didn’t want a situation where I had to get to where I became unhealthy. So I had to nip in the bud, the overweight.

I cannot now talk about my diet because I am not through yet. I still want to go down 16-20 more kg. That is the size I feel I should keep, not because that is what health experts say, but what I feel I want.
