‘I struggled with depression and found comfort in food’ – Uriel Oputa recounts her weight loss journey

Big Brother Naija star Uriel Oputa has revealed what caused her weight gain a couple of years ago.

The reality star admitted that she was depressed and turned to food 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 indicated that his recent weight loss was due to a medical condition.

She shared this on her Instagram page, adding that because of her family’s medical history, she needed to start losing weight and living a healthy lifestyle.
