Dancehall artist Tifa is entering the new year 50 pounds lighter, after starting a weight-loss journey with Dykal Health & Wellness in May.
The Big Bumper artist was 200 pounds when she became the face of the Florida facility, and their program helped her lose the initial 30 pounds she set out to shed. After seeing her body transform, Tifa pushed to cut an extra 20.
“All I have to say is thank you so much to Dykal Health & Wellness,” Tifa shared in her latest Instagram post. “I’m the healthiest and happiest I’ve been in a very long time.”
The program saw her taking semaglutide injections, which may decrease appetite and cause weight loss; and skinny shots which are dietary supplements that release fat deposits from different parts of the body. She also had a customized meal plan and bio impedance monitoring which assesses body composition.
The Dash Out entertainer revealed that she was a little skeptical about the program, but was more concerned about getting her “old body” back.
“With the help of doc and her husband, the semaglutide, vitamin B12 mix, balanced diet and exercise, regular telehealth and office check-ins, I was getting there.”
The undertaking picked up traction in the media, which saw her having to defend the program to naysayers.
“Over the past 10 years, I’ve been suffering with my hormones and this particular program is, I think, probably the only consistent thing in terms of weight loss that has helped me with my weight because if you guys notice, my weight has been up and down,” she previously shared.
She later added, “Most people love it. Some people a seh mi get too meagre, but I was doing it for me. I was at a comfortable weight, my legs weren’t swelling anymore. I was just feeling really, really good about myself.”
Staying disciplined posed its challenges, especially with her hectic schedule as an entertainer and entrepreneur.
“Some weeks were very hard,” she said. “I was flying up and down, I was doing my shows, I was all over the place. I was filming commercials, you name it, but I still managed… I got a little complacent. I could have lost a little more, but I was so obsessed with getting back to my old weight, I made sure to make my target.”
