Hi my name is Boitumelo Khola. I am 20 years of age. I decided to start this campaign in oder to help young girls become more comfortable in their own skin. All my life I was over weight until I decided to turn a new leaf and change my life in 2015 when I was 17. My auntie introduced to some banting diet and it changed my life. At the age of 12 I was over 100kg, by the time I decided to embark on a weight loss journey I was 123kg and at that time I was 17 years old. I know how it feels to be treated differently because you are not skinny enough, I know how it feels to be excluded from certain activities because you are not skinny enough. I had to buy friendships in oder to feel accepted, even though I felt I used and wasn't happy, I continued because all I needed was acceptance from the world. I was called all sort of names from fat to disgusting and ended up believing it. I became depressed at a very young age and till today I'm still working on accepting myself. I lost 37kg in 9 months and that gave me confidence, my school work improved and the way I saw myself improved in a sense. I am not where I want to be but I will get there one day. My aim is to raise funds and get a number of girls who are overweight and put them on a banting diet and not everyone can afford it, the funds will go forward buying all the necessary food needed for the girls and also professional personal trainers who will conduct the training sessions. I want to save young girls from what I went through, I almost committed suicide because of my weight and how I was treated, when all I wanted was to be accepted and genuinely loved. Words are powerful and can either make or break a person. I want to see young girls become comfortable in their own skin and flourish so they too can reach their full potential.
