Sophie Ndaba has been losing weight and looking wonderful. The gorgeous star took to social media to reveal to her fans that she had to lose weight because of her health.
Sophie was first introduced to South Africans as the bubbly, confident Queen on Generations. Since then she's been adored by fans who love her for who she is away from the cameras as well.
However, the star had health problems and she revealed that she landed in hospital because of her weight more than once.
Sophie decided to turn herself around and lose weight by eating healthy - a decision she does not regret.
She recently told fans that she is living with diabetes but that it doesn't mean her life is over.
In fact, she hopes to inspire others living with the disease to also follow a healthy lifestyle.
Being overweight landed me in hospital. I made my weight loss choice. I'm proud of it! I'm excited my fridge looks pretty 5 colours without fail. I will eventually reach my goal weight. Through healthy eating.
Sophie lost both her parents to the disease and won't let the same happen to her. She knows how serious the disease is and has made changes that will keep her healthy and happy for many years to come.
