JJ and Anja de Villiers lost 24kg and 12kgs as a couple in Summer Body Challenge [Testimonial]

Hey, I am not much of a storyteller but let me give this shot.

I was always blessed with decent sporting abilities, playing and excelling at almost any sport I attempted, and I have always been a big guy. When I left school I played provincial rugby and traveled a bit playing in England and Ireland. My struggles with weight started when I was young and have always had a parent either struggling with weight or obsessing about exercise.

I was always active, loved the outdoors and rugby, but I realised everything doesn’t always just fall into place. After returning from Ireland I ballooned to 166kgs – which at the time was the heaviest I had been. I tried all sorts of eating plans and excersises to curb this.

My weight fluctuated between 130 (when training hard) to 160’s when eating whatever I wanted and being lazy. What I was eating was horrendous, pies, chips, anything fried, white bread and only fizzy drinks and loads of it.


I am an addict and have been down many dark roads and valleys in my life and have used food for comfort myself and have substituted one thing for another for most of my life.

My wife, Anja, on the other hand was never really into sports.  Although she never had major weight issues either, over the last 5 years she has gained ±30kg.  She also tried various options to try and loose this, but could never manage to either loose it and maintain it.   Food has always been the ultimate comfort and reward for Anja, rewarding herself with food for being happy, being sad, doing wellŠ any reason you can think of.

In July Anja and I had put on weight again.  We were looking around for a challenge or a “foot up” or head start into getting out lives back on track as we had both let ourselves go (badly) when we got married in February 2012.


A personal trainer, a friend, a wife or as we all know SleekGeek  is invaluable especially to a guy like me. Once Anja and I heard then read about SleekGeek we decided we were in after seeing how many people’s lives Elan and this community has touched.

We joined into heat one of the summer challenge on the 2nd of September and we started at 172.7kg (Me) and 97.2kg (Anja) and really decided to keep each other accountable to one another and to the community. I followed the Paleo diet and Anja followed the blood type diet. We did stray a couple times, but always got straight back on the wagon and pushed harder at gym or on the mountain.

Being a couple, we had the benefit of constant encouragement and support from each other.  If I was down, Anja would motivate and get me back on track  and vice versa. Having a wife who planned meals, encouraged and supported me was invaluable as the accountability factor in this journey is without parallel.

After 8 weeks, we finished the challenge down 24.1kg (for me) and Anja had lost 11.8kg – which is just incredible. We couldn’t be happier! We both have a long-term goals  to not only reach a certain weight, (for me to be 112kgs by my 35th birthday in June – which is the same weight I was when I left school) but also for us to completely change our lifestyle  be healthier and happier!

We can’t wait for the next challenge (comeback kid) in February 2013.

Both Anja and I would like to thank Elan Lohman and SleekGeek from the bottom of our hearts for this life changing community and support system. My mother, sister and cousin have asked to join in on the next challenge and we will be in it to win it come “The comeback kid”

Much love to all the people in the community for your continued support and words of encouragement, it is invaluable.

SleekGeeks for life!

JJ and Anja de Villiers (Hout Bay, Cape Town)
