QA: Rhona loses 48kgs by doing it for herself


Rhona Fourie




Empangeni, Kwa-Zulu Natal

How much weight have you lost on your journey so far?

Starting Weight was 148kgs
Current weight 100kgs

What do you do? [Job]

I am a depot manager for a courier company.

What else do you do? [Hobbies, non-work stuff, etc]

I love to get creative with Resin casting and I am currently a plus-size model in training.


How long have you been a member of Sleekgeek?

I actually can’t remember when I joined but, it was a while before I decided to change my lifestyle.

How did you find Sleekgeek?

I came across the group during one of my weight-loss moments (before actually committing).

What is your favourite part of the Sleekgeek Community?

The fact that everyone is supportive and encouraging. It does not matter who you are or how far you are in your journey you are encouraged by everyone in the group.


Describe the “old you” before you made your transformation. How did you get there and what were you like?

Well, fat and depressed would be the best description. I had a few health issues along with depression which was exacerbated by being morbidly obese.

What ignited your initial motivation to change?

I woke up one morning in Feb 2020, after having a dream of dying. I decided then and there that I needed to change and get better.

What are some of the things that the new you does differently now?

I am more aware of my emotions (emotional eater) and also conscious of my eating, I am also a lot more active at work and home so I get a few more extra steps in during the day.

What are some of the things that the new you still struggles with?

I still see myself as the person I was in 2019, I struggle to actually see the weightloss in the mirror.

If you could give yourself 1 piece of advice to help with that struggle, what would it be?

I need to change the way I look at myself. I need to get past self-criticism.

Did you plateau, get stuck, or get disillusioned, or even slide backwards a bit on your journey?

YES! Currently hit a plateau! I’m not allowing myself to be despondent, as long as the scale isn’t going up, I’m still on track.

What is better since you got healthy?

Everything! My mental health has improved, my physical health and general well being. I am able to play with my kids.


What’s your favourite form of exercise? [Running, yoga, weightlifting, etc]

Due to work I actually don’t get much time to do any training but I do get a lot more walking in which I never did before.

How has exercise/training/Sport Changed your life? [Made it better, etc – please be specific]

Looking at how lazy I was, being able to play with my kids and dog makes me so happy.


What’s your favourite meal?

Anything to do with pasta.

OK, now what’s your favourite healthy meal?

Chicken salad or roasted chicken and vegetables.

Favourite protein?


Favourite carbohydrate?

Bananas and potatoes

What’s your nutrition philosophy / approach? [If you have one]

Be mindful of what you eat – don’t deprive yourself of anything, because that will make your transition worse.

How many meals a day do you eat?

I have 5 small meals a day and don’t eat after 6pm.

Do you have a cheat meal / treat strategy?

This has worked for me, it might not work for everyone. If I have a cheat meal or treat I cut out the next meal- so if I’m having a chocolate at lunchtime then I skip my 3pm meal.


Most memorable personal best achievement to date. Something you maybe never imagined you could do?

Being able to loose almost 50kgs has been a huge achievement for me.

Favorite quote?

Don’t worry if you are not where you want to be yet, great things take time..

Favourite book?

Does Facebook count???

What inspires and motivates you?

My biggest motivation at the moment is seeing the scale drop. No matter how small the drop is, it’s still better than where I was a month ago.

For what are you most grateful?

That I can love myself again!

What do you want to say to other community members who might be nervous or hesitant to make a start?

Don’t just settle on a quick fix diet, they never work and deprive you. This is a lifestyle change, so do something that you will be able to do for the rest of your life. You should set small goals and shift them as you approach the goals. As long as the scale doesn’t go up you’re still doing good.

What are your top 5 tips for anyone starting on a healthy journey?

  1. Water is your best tool
  2. Set small achievable goals
  3. Define your why
  4. Be present when you eat
  5. Get an accountability partner
