For many years Rika has struggled with her weight.
After her divorce from her husband of 18 years it became worse and her weight completely spiralled out of control.
She started eating and drinking as a means of comfort because she couldn’t deal with the pain anymore.
This led to her gaining weight and within 6 months Rika weighed 100kg.
Like most of us, she has tried everything from the 28 day diet, Herbalife, diet pills, Banting and the list goes on but nothing seemed to work.
What she means by this is that she would lose weight but as soon as she stopped doing it, she would pick up all that weight again.
We all know that diets these day have become so expensive. Not everyone can afford it anymore that’s why for most people it becomes difficult to sustain it for a long period of time.
One day Rika came across the 90 day wellness challenge hosted by Urban Beauty Academy and decided to try it.
This time she decided not to do it alone, she decided to share the challenge with her new found love Johan. Yes, she found love again and they are now married.
Isn’t that amazing?
Taking on this journey together has been amazing for them and they are loving their new lifestyle.
Living a mucous free (meat free) lifestyle is nothing like they ever imagined. They genuinely thought it would be hard but instead the food is affordable, it’s delicious, they have more energy and they feel more healthy than they ever did before.
The bonus is that Johan has also now halved his intake of his hypertension medication and Rika has halved her intake of antidepressants as well.
Both Rika and Johan are on day 53 of the 90 day wellness challenge and have lost 30kg between the two of them.
They have both decided to continue to live this lifestyle for many years to come as this programme has given them so much knowledge and has taught them so much about themselves. This lifestyle is affordable for them and is a much easier alternative to the fad diets out there.
Rika and Johan would like to thank Claudia, Bridgette, Alexandra, Alex and all the contestants and trainers involved in the 90 day wellness programme for helping them come this far. Their journey doesn’t end here, there is much more to come.
I hope their story inspires you.
If you are interested in joining this 90 day wellness programme, there will be a wellness day held on the 15th of September where the entire season 2 will be explained and launched.
The winner of season 1’s biggest loser will also be announced on that day. So you guys are in for a treat.
