In August 2015 Sofia decided that this year was going to be different.

Summer and the upcoming Christmas holidays were going to be something she really looked forward to rather than fill her with dread, like the years prior where nothing would fit, the winter layers would have to come off and days at the beach and by the pool were spent hiding; sitting and watching everyone else having fun out in the open.

As she nears the end of her journey in June 2016, Sofia has currently lost 35 kilos and every aspect of her life (and her familys’) has changed unbelievably.

Sofia is happier, healthier and a keen fashionista adding many trending tight-fitting, low cut, body hugging items to her wardrobe and walking in those sky-high heels is now effortless.

Sofia credits support from family, friends, work colleagues and most of all Maria to this life changing experience. Her hashtag is now #notgivingup.
