One of Kenya’s curvaceous TV personality is never afraid of speaking out her mind. As Kenyans across social media continue debating the Njoki Chege’s article about fat women, Grace Msalame has also come out to give her 2 cents on the same.
In an article titled “Fat women, let’s tackle this elephant in the room”, Njoki Chege fires shots at “plus size” women, telling them that they are fat because of their laziness and gluttony and should wake up and exercise. This sparked a debate on different social media platforms with the “targeted” coming out to lash back at Njoki Chege.
One FM’s Presenter Naomi Ng’ang’a Responds To Njoki Chege For Attacking Fat Women
In a lengthy message, Grace Msalame supported Njoki Chege and called upon “plus-size” women to identify what triggers them to indulge in activities that cause them to grow fat and refrain from them but also highlighted that the City Girl was uncouth.
“So I took this Pic Saturday Morning after reading Njoki’s Article knowing I’d use it at some point… Heavy on Filter though cause I’d just jumped out of the shower looking for something to wear… Anyway short of it all! I’ve just read @carolinemutoko Article in response to the Infamous Fat Shaming Article & I must say finally what a breath of Fresh air!! Finally a more honest approach! Njoki was rather crude but her opinion is very much valid. Coming from my own honest space… I weighed 65Kg’s before my kids after naturally loosing my teen weight in my early twenties! I then got pregnant at 24! & still managed to maintain a good ratio, though of course as my twins were growing in my belly I gained 14Kilos!! So by 9months I was 79Kg’s!! My heaviest yet! Breast-Feeding did me good though, in no time I was back to my pre-baby weight. 2years in though I fluctuated between 70-73Kg’s! Now though 4yrs later I’m approaching my fears… I’m now at 77Kg’s! And I am very aware of my triggers! Stress makes me crave sugar & fat & I also tend to eat at the wrong times. Being aware of our triggers is the first step to dealing with our body weight! Don’t mask it! Ignore it! Deny it! But accept & begin to work on it. To quote Caroline “I encourage you to figure out your fat trigger. It’s never what I am eating that leads to weight gain, it’s what’s eating me. That’s the FAT Problem. The End”
