Kenya’s curvaceous media personality who has proved that Hips don’t lie recently came to Njoki Chege’s aid after a section of Kenyan citizens and celebs mercilessly lashed her after she wrote a controversial article ‘dissing’ fat women.
Grace Msalame had the following to say:
Anyway short of it all! I’ve just read @carolinemutoko Article in response to the Infamous Fat Shaming Article & I must say finally what a breath of Fresh air!!
Finally a more honest approach! Njoki was rather crude but her opinion is very much valid. Coming from my own honest space… I weighed 65Kg’s before my kids after naturally loosing my teen weight in my early twenties! I then got pregnant at 24! & still managed to maintain a good ratio, though of course as my twins were growing in my belly I gained 14Kilos!!
So by 9months I was 79Kg’s!! My heaviest yet! Breast-Feeding did me good though, in no time I was back to my pre-baby weight. 2years in though I fluctuated between 70-73Kg’s! Now though 4yrs later I’m approaching my fears… I’m now at 77Kg’s! And I am very aware of my triggers! Stress makes me crave sugar & fat & I also tend to eat at the wrong times.
Being aware of our triggers is the first step to dealing with our body weight! Don’t mask it! Ignore it! Deny it! But accept & begin to work on it. To quote Caroline “I encourage you to figure out your fat trigger. It’s never what I am eating that leads to weight gain, it’s what’s eating me. That’s the FAT Problem. The End”
