For such a miraculous change of appearance, one would presume she is definitely having things go easy for her now or that all her fans are totally in support of her change in diet plans. This is not the case as the Yoruba comedian who is also an actress revealed the challenges she has had to face even after her weight loss.
In a recent interview with Telegraph, she revealed how she was faced with negatives comments from people and how she had to learn to deal with it and not let them affect her. She said:"on the internet, people said so many negative things about me. At the time, I kept asking myself if what I did was wrong. I had to learn how people’s opinion should not define me. It was a shaky time for me."
"So, it was important to address why I did what I did. I knew I didn’t lose weight because of people. I knew it wasn’t because I wanted attention that I shed all that fat. It was because of me.someone asked me why I decided to lose weight. He said I was making lots of money with my former weight as a comedian.
I was like, ‘O yes, I was making a lot of money as a comedian, however, I needed to lose weight for a number of reasons. This person put the story out, saying I was making more money when I was fat than now that I am slim. It made me look ridiculous. I was upset. To be honest, I cried. Until I realised that people’s opinion should not define me."
Lepacious Bose reportedly lost 90kg and ever since then, she has continued with her dieting and work out activities. She shares inspirational messages and documents her weight loss activities which she shares on her social media platform. According to her, the journey is not over as she plans to loose even more weight.
