Thembi, who recently gave birth to her first born in 2018 took to Instagram and revealed that while she was growing up, she used to be obsessed with being skinny, which led her to experiment with crash diets and starving herself.
The actress said her decision of taking diet pills and starving was motivated by the fact that she was ashamed of her weight because her best friend at the time was petite and she could wear anything and everything,
“I decided to drink diet pills and experimented on crash diets by starving myself daily, which worked because I lost the weight but yet I felt like I was dying. I felt weak most of the time, my heart rate was high, felt constantly tired, sleepy and my concentration span was short.” the actress said.
The actress also wrote that she decided to open up about her past because for many years her friends, family and fans have been asking her how she remains youthful and she hopes to inspire many as she also has opened a fitness inspirational Instagram account.
“Please follow my fitness page @thembiseete_fitnesspage,I hope this page inspires you. For many years and to this day I'm still getting questions from my friends, family and fans on how I remain young.”, the actress wrote.
The inspirational fitness account has already reached 13 000 followers on Instagram.
