"When did you make peace with the fact that you’ll never be size 32 ever again, you’re a size 50, and did you have a party? Cause I feel like only mcimbinyana (a small ceremony) will give me peace and help solidify this milestone. So xa silapha kuxhelwa ntoni? Ihagu okanye inkomo? (So when we've reached this stage what do we slaughter, a pig or a cow?)"

"When I bought a size 42 jeggings. I got home and fitted the thing but it didn't wanna go up my thighs, I just sat down cried and cancelled my outing."
"When I went to buy clothes and came back with nothing cause nothing could fit me. I cried and hated shopping for about a year but yazini I have healed... Slaughter a cow and just be content."
"When I started shopping for myself in 2016, where I could take my time looking for my size 40 instead of someone buying me small sizes and making me feel bad for the size I have. Please invite me to that mcimbi ma wami (ceremony my mom)."
"Mirrors, reflection of myself sitting down. One day I will love myself more for today. I love myself 60 percent."
