Cross-dresser and TikTok sensation Kelvin Kinuthia has shared his experience after having his gastric balloon procedure.
The content creator said before the procedure, he weighed 138kg, and barely two months after the procedure, he now weighs 131kg.
Kinuthia told Word Is that he swallowed the balloon in November and it will be removed in February.
"I have seen the changes. This last month, I am supposed to do extra workouts and even have a personal trainer to help me out," he said.
Kinuthia said he is impressed by the changes as his focus was on belly fat and he has seen the changes.
"I am happy to see myself losing 7kg. I have only been reducing the amount of food I take and I have managed to lose that much," he said.
When asked why he chose the procedure, Kinuthia said he does not have the discipline to be consistent with other workout plans.
"I spent 450k and if I get more cash, I will still do it again. I will only consider taking a two-month break to enjoy the foods that I have been asked not to take when having them," he said, adding that he misses soda.
Speaking about the challenges, Kinuthia said he has been experiencing morning sickness, and waking up has also been a challenge.
"With the balloon, you can't wake up and start doing your things. You wake up in stages to also give it time to fix well after the night's turns," he said.
Kinuthia said his mum encouraged him to go through the procedure since he was overweight.
"It’s a small tablet you swallow and when it gets to your stomach, they do an X-ray then start filling the tablet with a fluid. They fill through a pipe which sticks out your mouth."
Kinuthia is among other popular Kenyan celebrities who have undergone the procedure to lose weight.
Others are Kate Actress, Willis Raburu, and Jackie Matubia.
