“I was the maid of honor, at my sister’s wedding. When I got to see my photographs from the wedding, I thought, even I wouldn’t have made myself my own maid of honor.” – Sweetie Bassey
Sweetie Bassey is a fitness enthusiast from Nigeria. Her turning point came when she saw (former) overweight photos of herself… So she figured to part ways with the former, and make room for a brand new Sweetie.
This is not just a weight loss story, but one of how one woman decided to make a difference for herself, by herself.
Sweetie inspires women through her instagram page @yesyoucannn. Here, she shares her fitness journey, and contributes to the fit-fam significantly. She also makes the fitness journey sooo easy-breezy.
This was how Sweetie Marked her Fitness Journey:
Three years ago, I decided to change my life forever. Since starting my journey, I’ve successfully lost and kept off 47kg. I started at 115kg. I started off clueless and hungry to learn. I did get frustrated but I never gave up. My mum was very supportive by cooking healthy meals and agreeing to workout with me some days. Because of how far I’ve come and how much I’ve learnt, I want to help 15 people get a start on their journey. We’ll start slow giving you all the support you need to begin your journey and a support system with 14 other people like you and some fitness enthusiast friends of mine.
