My struggle with depression made me an emotional eater – Uriel Oputa opens up on weight loss journey



Big Brother Naija alum, Uriel Oputa, has revealed what triggered her weight gain a couple of years ago.

The reality show star said she was suffering from depression and because of that, she found solace in food. Uriel captioned her before and after photos she posted on social media:

“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,”

Uriel wrote:

“When you have a family history of high blood pressure, stroke even cancer you make changes. I went for a full health check. I had ovarian cyst for years (Non cancerous} we checked yesterday and it’s gone. There is no perfect weight, I was happy being a size 14/15 but my body needed to be fed differently so I did and I lost weight. You can be healthy in any size but my healthy size ended up being smaller.

“Be attentive to your body even if you don’t follow my recipes. I don’t want my children to go through what my brothers and sisters passed through with my mother.”
