- Ayanna is obese for her body size
- She has shed 9kg from her initial weight of 97kg
- She has shared her weight-loss journey on a popular TV show
At 97kg, 24-year-old Ayanna was considered dangerously obese for her body size. She is a little person, a term that refers to people affected by dwarfism.
She is still obese, but through sheer determination she has managed to shed a whooping 9kg to weigh in at under 90kg for the first time in years.
She has shared her inspiring weight-loss journey on the TV reality series Big & Little, which airs on TLC.
Speaking after her weigh-in during the show, Ayanna said: "I am super excited I got down because for years I have actually been over 200lbs (90kg), and, finally, after many of years of struggling I am glad that I made it."
Her trainer and fellow little person, Allison, complimented her for her achievement and noted how good she looked.
However, Allison told her that more work still needs to be done to achieve her weight-loss goals. She added that Ayanna's weight risks are stagnating at the same level.
For the time being however, Ayanna is thrilled. Her ultimate aim is to achieve a complete makeover and try her hand again at the dating game.
