Well if you are still wondering why this is so, then wonder no more because Maureen Waititu has infact been on a weight loss journey.

The voluptuous mother of two infact finally revealed the secret to how she has lost weight, after she kept netizens guessing for the past few weeks or so.

Posting some photos showing the impressive body transformation, Maureen Waititu further accompanied them with a long message saying that she had infact used a Gastric Bypass procedure to aid in the weight loss.

The mother of two further said that she started this process about 4 months ago, when she realized that her weight was too much.

Since then however the YouTuber has been able to lose some 22 kgs. However this is not enough as she is aiming to still lose more.

"I've been trying to type this and I am super emotional. I am also feeling very vulnerable to share but I owe so many of you who have been asking about my weight loss journey.

Four months ago during one of my lowest moments, I walked into @nairobibariatric at the heaviest I've ever been in my life. They held my hand helping me lose 22 kgs so far through their advanced gastric balloon technology, and now I'm able to share with you my journey with my followers" she wrote.

Maureen Waititu also described how being overweight affected her health negatively.

"...My body has gone through so much in the last few years and at some point it just couldn't take care of me - I did everything I could to stay fit and healthy, but no matter how many times I worked out or how little I ate, I kept piling on the kilos. My asthma got bad, my back hurt and my ankles couldn't support me making me sedentary most of the times, and consequently gaining more weight".

In the long post Maureen Waititu also admitted that netizens used to body shame her because of how she looked, and this motivated her to work out.

Here is the long post.

The disclosure by Maureen Waititu therefore means that she is among some famous local celebrities, who are currently undergoing the gastric bypass procedure in order to lose weight.

The process involves the placing of a saline-filled silicone balloon in the stomach, and this helps to limit the amount of food that one eats. This therefore helps the person to lose weight.

Other celebrities who have also undergone the procedure involve actresses Kate Actress and Jackie Matubia, podcaster Murugi Munyi and also Citizen TV presenter Willis Raburu.
