A popular Nigerian comedienne, Lepacious Bose who weighed 198kg for 25 years, then surprised everyone when she drastically reduced from size 32 to 14 in the last two years, has opened up about how losing weight has affected her economically.
She revealed how she does not make more money now that she is slim, compared to when she was very fat, and got more jobs and money while she was overweight.
During the 2nd anniversary of Herbal Pro’s flagship product EZ Slim and the Unveiling of Nigeria’s First Online Health and Wellness Newsletter in Lagos, she opened up about not making enough money now.
According to her:
”I was obese for 25-years. I was never happy being fat and I had health challenges like my thyroids were aggravating. I was depressed for two years. I was not menstruating. I was so emotional and each time I visited the hospital, they will ask me to go and lose weight. Though, I was making a lot of money because it was easy cracking jokes about my being fat. Now that I am slimming down, I do not make so much money anymore. Above all, my weight loss has been an incredible journey and I am proud of the progress I have made and I don’t intend to stop. I am also proud of the fact that my weight loss is an inspiration to others. I am happier, healthier and more confident thanks to EZ Slim product. Presently, I am now a size 16. Two years ago, I was obese with a weight of 198kg.”
