Weight struggles

Earlier this year, DJ Pierra opened up on her weight struggles saying that during her pregnancy she was so stressed that she ended up shedding a couple of kgs. She further revealed that she dropped to as low as 49kgs when she was three months pregnant. Her doctor even cautioned her on the risk her rapid weight loss posed to her unborn baby.

"I finally gave birth but three months later, I still couldn't gain any weight and this was a problem as I still needed milk to breastfeed my daughter," she narrated.

As a result, Pierra embarked on a journey to regain some weight for the sake of her daughter. "Suddenly everything just changed. I was extremely happy as my daughter, Ricca Pokot, was now feeding well. However, I used to feel uncomfortable in my own skin, I did not think I was beautiful anymore and I just couldn't handle the trolls," she revealed.
