Uriel Oputa, a former Big Brother Naija contestant, has opened up about what led to her weight increase a few years ago.
The Reality Show actress claimed that because of her depression, she turned to eating for comfort.
“I WAS AN EMOTIONAL EATER I STRUGGLED WITH DEPRESSION (STILL DEALING WITH IT) AND FOUND COMFORT IN FOOD. I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND WHAT FULL WAS, I KNEW I FELT UNCOMFORTABLE BUT I DIDN’T CARE. WHEN PEOPLE ASK ME TO HELP THEM THE FIRST THING I ASK IS :ARE YOU MENTALLY READY ?? IT’S A TOUGH BATTLE, BUT YOU SHALL OVERCOME,” SHE CAPTIONED HER BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS SHE POSTED ON SOCIAL MEDIA.
Uriel had earlier given the main reason for losing so much weight in the past few months.
She disclosed this on her Instagram page, stating she had to embark on a weight loss journey and a healthy lifestyle because of her family medical history.
