IMHO there is a mismatch between the English and the Swahili sentences.

He is losing weight (because he is ill): Anakonda (kwa sababu anaumwa)

He is slimming: Anajikondesha. The reflexive -ji and the causative -esha make the literally translation 'he is causing himself to lose weight', that is: 'he is slimming'.
