“When that pic of me was taken last Dec, I was SHOOK. I could not understand how I had gotten to that size,” Ciru said.

“Then on top of that, my health had begun to suffer. My joints hurt, and I could not go up a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing. Let’s not even talk about my mental health. My confidence was in the toilet and I hated looking in the mirror.”

Under the guidance of Nairobi Bariatric, Ciru embarked on a transformative health journey that involved a combination of dietary changes and fitness routines. She credits the clinic’s unwavering support for her progress thus far.

“They have supported me so much during this health journey,” Ciru acknowledged gratefully. “We will have a live session this week to talk about what I got done and how it has been.”
