TikTok creator Kelvin Karanja Kinuthia has provided an update on his weight loss journey following a gastric balloon procedure.
The cross-dressing sensation says he weighed 138.6kg before the procedure and now weighs 129kg barely a month later.
Kinuthia said he hopes to lose 30 kgs in the next three months.
“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,” he said.
“I’m staying with it for 4 months and then I’m done. I’m aiming to lose about 30kgs by the end of 4 months. I spent Sh450,000,” he added.
Kinuthia said he decided to go through with the gastric balloon procedure because he started feeling a little heavier than usual.
“My mum was actually complaining that I was adding a lot of weight because all I did was eat before I went through the procedure,” he said.
The TikToker also explained why he did not opt for gym workouts instead.
“I cannot manage to stay consistent in the gym. The only workout I can bear is dancing on TikTok. My body burns calories well so TikTok dances are enough,” Kinuthia said.
