Citizen TV news anchor Lilian Muli has admitted that during her first pregnancy she went through post natal depression something that saw her lose a lot of weight.
Every woman who has been through pregnancy will tell you losing baby fat is no child’s play but for Lilian the weight kept shedding off .
To others it was a sign of ‘hard work’ but for Lilian it was a cause for alarm.
She went on to add that people thought that she was intentionally losing weight:
I didn’t look nice by the way, but everyone was like how did you lose after having a baby?
What a lot of people did not know was that the birth of my first child took a toll on me emotionally and mentally.
So I went through an episode of post-natal depression so I could not eat, I could not function.
It was hard for me.
She adds that it at that tough time in her life that the idea of ‘Slim Possible ‘ was born
When I finally got over that I got into that serious healthy eating program and I really watched how I ate and worked out religiously.
So when I walked into Citizen TV my boss was like ´Hold up, how old is your baby?´
And he asked ´How are you this tiny?´
So I told him about my depression and my deliberate decision to put on weight.
And then he said ´Okay fine, you are the person we have been looking for.´
And so…Slim possible was born.
