Weight Loss Struggle: Chicago Rapper Ceytra


The subject of this week’s Weight Loss Struggle is Chicago’s Very Own Ceytra. Ceytra, a Chicago-based Rapper knows a thing or two about the struggle to lose weight. She simply didn’t like the girl who was staring back at her in the mirror. She wanted to lose weight to not only look good but to build her confidence. With hardwork and dedication, Ceytra has dropped over 65lbs. going from 245lbs to 185lbs.

When asked how she did, Ceytra stated she started by working out a few times a week. She said it became such a habit that now she tries to workout at least 4-5 times a week. She also gave up red meat and chicken. Something that I know for myself is very hard to do! While she says it wasn’t easy it was was something that she needed to do for herself.

At 22, she has had way more willpower than I’ve had in a longtime. Ceytra is looking fierce in her new body and she’s not afraid to show it to the world.

Her hits range from club bangers such as That’s My S*t and OpinuHaters to more mellow songs such as OneDay. To see more about what Ceytra has been up to and to check out her music and videos go here
