Tammy beats Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

YOU-CAN_LOGOHaving never had a weight issue apart from being told I was too skinny (yes you read right), I guess I decided that eating badly didn’t faze me or couldn’t affect me. How completely wrong I was!

I had steadily picked up weight over 7 years as I have something called PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), but still kept thinking I would get rid of it in a flash, surprise surprise, NO EASY WAY OUT.
1kg turned into 3, then 5 then before I knew it I had picked up 16.6kgs. Having lived in the US didn’t help matters as there everything is fried and each portion could feed a family of 10! Coming back to South Africa, feeling sad and lost I continued my downward health spiral, eating every bad carb I could find.


I had my AHA moment one night when I decided to head out to my favourite club with my friends. I happened to glance at a girl who looked so uncomfortable in her own skin and noticed that she had lumps and bumps in all the wrong places, scary thing is, that girl I noticed was ME, I had seen my reflection in the mirror of the club whilst going to the bathroom. I was horrified. I hadn’t fully realised until that moment that I had allowed my body to transform so drastically.

Needless to say I ended up leaving the club, went home and cried myself to sleep and decided to start my weight loss journey, as I never wanted to see that poor girl again.

I started my diet on the 5th of July last year, was introduced to the Sleek Geek community and lost 14.1kgs in 5 months.

I have met such incredible people from the Sleek Geek community who have encouraged me and invited me to share in their own personal struggles, making me realize that in some way or another we are all fighting a battle and one key thing we all need, is support and to be educated about the do’s and don’ts of healthy living. [Join Group]

A few months ago, having been on the Sleek Girls Facebook page for a while, I saw a post from a fellow Sleek Girl mentioning that she needed one more member to join their Warrior Race Team, having NEVER entered something like that as I have to be honest, I am a bit of a princess, I figured what the heck.

I’m slimmer and feeling so much more energetic, why not. It was something that changed my life. I was petrified of certain obstacles but having lost so much weight already, I knew my body would carry me through it, and I can honestly say, my body did not disappoint.

Embarking on a healthier journey is not always easy but it sure is worth it. I have had moments of weakness and “pigged out”, as let’s face it, us ladies are emotional creatures and as such we resort to the likes of that chocolate bar to help us feel better.

A few things I have realised through my journey though are that

1) Even though you have eaten badly, don’t condemn yourself, you’re human, just dust yourself off and start eating clean, number

2) Emotional eating is a disorder and a lie, you may feel better for 5 minutes whilst eating that burger but afterwards your body will very clearly let you know it’s not happy,

3) Surround yourself with individuals who support and uplift you and

4) You DESERVE to be healthy and feel good. Having like-minded individuals around you, who when you’re having one of “those” days are so supportive and give you that push to get you over the hurdle, makes all the difference.

My journey isn’t over as I feel being fit and healthy is a choice I need to make every day, but I am looking forward to pushing myself further and being an inspiration to my friends and family who like me, have concerns and weight issues but aren’t always sure where to start.

Thank you Sleek Geek community and Elan for inspiring me every day and for all your amazing support.
