Uriel Oputa, Big Brother Naija star, has revealed what caused her weight increase a few years ago.
The reality personality revealed that she was depressed and found refuge in eating as a result.
“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 previously stated the primary reason for his recent weight loss.
She revealed this on her Instagram page, explaining that due to her family’s medical history, she needed to begin on a weight loss journey and adopt a healthy lifestyle.
