Nkanyiso’s decision to shed weight was inspired his children and the need to be a healthy and able-bodied father and husband.

“I’ve always been overweight, it’s been who I am for most of my life, but it didn’t make my life as difficult as it is now. When I was younger, I could handle my weight better and still do most things, but now as I get older, it is becoming more and more dangerous for me. I have a family, a wife and children, and I don’t want to leave them before I would have if I had just shed some weight. I don’t want to die,” he said.
