Unlike many celebrities who have documented their weight loss journeys, Nadia emphasized her desire to achieve her goals through natural means.

“Rather than resorting to cosmetic procedures or surgery, I am determined to put in the work,” Nadia said.

She also said her goal was to reach 60 kilograms while acknowledging her appreciation for the natural fullness that comes with pregnancy, with the exception of the loose tummy and double chin.

“Losing weight is incredibly challenging! Let’s not misunderstand — I embrace the new, curvier version of myself, aside from the mummy pouch, double chin, and my solid arms like a wrestler,” Nadia said.

Nadia also said one of her main reasons for embarking on the weight loss journey was for her to be fit for performances.
