The Gain

A “very lean” teenager, Shanee says that she never had much of a problem with her weight. It was only when she started working and wasn’t exercising as much that the unwanted weight started creeping on.

Dinner would be a usual homecooked meal. And every meal was always accompanied by fizzy drinks,” she explains.
