"I'm doing this on my own terms and I'm enjoying being on this journey at my own pace," Tumi Morake

Tumi Morake has opened up about her battle with weight and how she has shed the kilos ever since she started on her journey last year.

"I'm doing this on my own terms and I'm enjoying being on this journey at my own pace," Tumi Morake told Destiny.

"A couple of people have come up to me and said: 'Oh my gosh, how did you lose weight so quickly?' I didn't lose weight quickly! I actually started working out around July last year and only started seeing results this year," she revealed to the site.

Tumi also reveals that her weight loss journey didn't start out as very healthy.

"I was one of those people who started banting before consulting my doctor and my cholesterol shot up to 6.1 before I collapsed at work and found out I was literally on the verge of a heart attack," she opened up.

The former Our Perfect Wedding host also lets the mag in on how people assume that she's always been big but she admits that it has been because of having babies.

"I stopped having babies! The reason people thought I was so incredibly obese is that they didn't realise that over the past five years they've been seeing me pregnant or post-baby. My three children came back to back and that's the biggest I've been in my life."

The comedienne has now committed herself to eating better and hitting the gym and she says the results have been great!

"I feel amazing, it's like my husand just got a wife upgrade! I've got more energy for him, more energy for my kids, it's been great for my libido, it's just been amazing!"

We're elated as long as one of our faves is looking and feeling great.

Keep on fighting the good fight mosadi.
