Sophie Ndaba-Lichaba is looking a lot different than she did when she first starred as Queen Morake on Generations.
The actress is a lot slimmer these days and she is proud of her weight-loss transformation.
During an interview with Metro FM’s Fresh Breakfast team recently, Sophie says that she was “obese” and had to address her weight “very quickly” because it was a “life and death situation”.
“… you can never lose when you’ve lost so much weight, and I’ve really, really worked on it because I just wanted to be a new me, a new everything.
“And I think more importantly, just leading a healthy lifestyle because that’s the highlight of the struggles I had for many, many years. I was obese, and I think in South Africa obesity is not addressed,” ZAlebs quoted her as saying on the show.
Some social media users commented that Sophie looks “too thin” now but Sophie is happy with the new healthier version of herself
“People can look at it from a different perspective and say, ‘Oh my gosh, I think she’s lost too much’. What’s too much for you? If it’s not too much for me, it can’t be too much for you. It’s all about me,” she added.
Sophie did not lose the weight overnight and it has been a gradual process for the star.
Since dropping all those extra kilos, the 46-year-old, who is busy planning her white wedding, says she is in a happy space.
“I’m in a space where I’m happy, I feel lighter. I feel excited even when I go shopping I’m excited. Now it’s a new me, I’m excited, I’m eating healthier, I’m going to start teaching people how to start eating healthier, so this is just the beginning of the beginning.”
