These five women may just be the inspiration you need to get off your couch and work even harder to reach your fitness goals.
Most of them are ordinary women -- whose decision to change started with a walk here, which eventually became a run, or a cooldrink here which was replaced by a glass of water.

2013 vs 2017 Determination and hard work are something that someone can't give you. It is something that you as an individual have to dig deeper within in order to find. What a transformation by me. #transformationtuesday #fitness #zeefitnessjunkie #fitmom #yummymummy #fitnessmotivation #tuesday #hardwork #motivation
5. Kgomotso Kgwathe
It took Kgwathe almost two years to lose over 50kg -- and even during her pregnancy she is still keeping fit and eating healthy.
