Over the past seven months, Thessy has been very focused on her goal and went to the gym six days a week and only had two cheat meals, as she set her sights on reaching her goal weight.
“All my hard work, sweat and tears. this is result of 5 months of the @fitazfk app, and almost 2 months of the @fitazfk 8 week challenge,” Thessy said in a before-and-after post.
She shared with her followers that she has been training six days a week for the past seven months.

“I haven’t finished my challenge and will continue to do the 8-week challenge all the way til it finishes on Monday.”
“I know my body performed a miracle and I love myself for it,” Thessy wrote in an Instagram post. “In saying this, I have a wedding I have dreamt my whole life about and I don’t want to get to two months out and go on a crash diet.
