Betty Kyallo’s sister Mercy was once in a toxic relationship and that was one major reason why she could not lose weight.
Speaking on BK Lately, the two opened up about their toxic relationships and how it stopped them from being their best version.
"If you think you are big and you've tried everything to lose weight and things are not working out, the first thing you should do is lose the negativity around you. I lost weight immediately I left you guys.
I was in a very long term relationship but I wasn’t happy and I think I tried to lose so much but I used to be so big. I used to run 4 times a month, like 10 kilometers. watched what I was eating, I was on diet, salads always on these things.
But I genuinely don't know what happened. After my bad relationship, I moved in with you but I was still stressed. When I moved out by myself I started feeling lighter and I started glowing.’ Mercy Kyallo said
Adding that she found out things about herself after the end of the relationship.
"When you are in a relationship you tend to eat what your partner is eating so you really have not a choice. I even just found out I react to milk and I didn't know and this is because he loved tea and a lot of pork. So I would find myself eating like him."
Betty then went ahead to reveal it also took her leaving a toxic relationship for her to lose weight.
"I also started losing weight when that relationship ended. Sometimes it is you're in the wrong relationship, wrong friends wrong environment, etc. You are just in a space where your head is at peace."
Their parting shot was simply to love yourself and do not be hard on your self.
