The Ibru sisters, Gloria & Elvina open up on their amazing weightloss

Once you set your mind to something , you can definitely accomplish it. The daughters of billionaire businessman, Olorongun Michael Ibru, Gloria, Elvina & Obukome Ibru, shocked many last year when they unveiled their new slim look. The sisters who were renowned for being very big and proud of their bigness, decided to shed some of the weight.

Talking about what motivated them to lose the weight, Elvina says it's all thanks to her big sis, Gloria . Read it Below
"I think Gloria, my elder sister, started it. Initially, she was the biggest amongst us all. She started losing weight first. Then I was getting bigger by the day. So two years ago, after Gloria inspired me with her gradual weight loss, I started telling myself that I could do it too. I guess what eventually triggered it off was that I had been big all my life but I never had any sickness or illness. It got to a point when I was beginning to feel sluggish. I felt I was suddenly trapped in my own body. There were some things that I had always loved to do, but my body was just not responding. Continue...
So I was asking myself, what was  happening in my body? Also I was feeling little ache at my back, and I just had a little son. So I asked myself how I was going to be enjoying and playing with my little son when I could not even lift my body. So it was not really about being prettier or being more beautiful that I lost weight. It was more about my health. Though I never had health challenges attached to my former weight.
At my biggest, I weighed 210kg and I am 5 feet 11. That is a very large person! But I didn't have ailments like diabetes, cholesterol or hypertension except for small ache at my back. I didn't want a situation where I had to get to where I became unhealthy. So I had to nip in the bud, the overweight. I cannot now talk about my diet because I am not through yet. I still want to go down 16-20 more kg. That is the size I feel I should keep, not because that is what health experts say, but what I feel I want." Elvina tells Bebe Akinboade
