In a chat with Moses Abhiele, a fitness trainer, he highlighted why Real Warri Pikin opted for surgery for weight loss and how one can shed pounds through daily fitness.

His words:

"The moment the change began was when she changed her mindset. Note this: 'Your body hears everything your mind says, so stay positive.' Several factors, including age, activity levels, lifestyle changes (including nutrition and exercise), gender, and metabolism, can influence the duration at which one loses weight when on a weight loss journey. Thus, it requires patience, time, and a change of mindset to get to one's goal.
"Going from 130kg to 83kg without surgery could take up to a year or more, depending on how an individual stays committed, dedicated, and consistent with the process. From creating a calorie deficit to eating nutrient-dense meals, your protein, fibre intake, vegetables, and healthy fats, tracking what you eat, your daily activity level, counting your daily steps, walking, not using the elevator, strength training, also sleeping well and reducing your stress level.
