Rianah's complete transformation
Devastated when she saw a picture of herself at a family function and realising that she weighed as much as she did when she gave birth.
It was time to make her dreams come true and get healthy.
Meet mom and wife, Rianah.
Rianah reached out to Jacaranda FM to help her reach her goal weight.
This wish was granted when the radio station sponsored Rianah to work with Virgin Active personal trainer Annerita for 3-months.
Rianah's Amazing Results
You cannot out-train a bad diet.
FitChef – Real Food Specialists
Of course being active is just one piece of the healthy living puzzle. Enter FitChef, South Africa’s most loved clean eating brand, who supported Rianah in making the best possible food and nutrition choices. And it was not too tough to awaken her tastebuds again to clean eating.
“My little one preferred FitChef food (which has no-nonsense) over Mc Donald’s. That alone should speak for itself.”
“Annerita is an absolute gem. She is one in a million and she has been with me every single step of the way. She has my heart and I appreciate her so much. I could not have gone through this transformation without her holding my hand. As much as I know I played a part in this as well, the extra kick I needed every single day came from her. She showed me how to do things the right way and pushed me. Words will never be enough for me to explain how much I value her.”
Having lost her father and uncle as she started the journey, there were some very challenging times. But Rianah remained with her eye on the prize.
“When I am having a bad day, I think about how far I have come and the end result. When I felt like giving up, I would actually hear my dad in my head saying, ‘Go Yana!’ and I could see him doing a little dance for me as well. I know that he would have been so proud of me, and he would have been my number one supporter. I miss him so much.”
Along with FitChef, Collagen SA, Freddy Jeans Clearwater and The Make-Up Room are some of the other sponsors that have guided Rianah in this journey.
“All my sponsors have such a huge role to play in this achievement and milestone in my life. Without them, I would not be this new version of myself. I appreciate every single one of them and I thank them for taking this chance and risk on me. They made me work harder and achieve the results I needed. They made me look forward to the end result- thank you.”
I feel beautiful inside and out!
Keeping motivated on a daily basis is important, says Rianah.
“One of my favourite quotes is: ‘You can be sore or sorry tomorrow – you decide.’
Rianah remains positive about continuing her healthy living journey. “I still have a little bit of extra weight I would like to lose, and I really want to tone up some more. Eating clean (thanks FitChef!) and continuing to gym will play a huge role in getting to my future goal.
