Female comedian, Lepacious Bose has once again spoken about her weight loss and the challenges that has come with it.
In a recent interview with Telegraph, the comedian 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’.
She further said, ‘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’.
Recall that last year, Lepacious Bose made a startling revelation on her Instagram page when she blamed the devil for her predicament, saying “ the devil stole 25 years of my life due to weight and hypothyroidism. I suffered in silence because no one understood my issues, I didn’t even understand myself.”
According to Lepacious Bose then, her work as a comedian did little to help her situation, although she successfully made people laugh while performing on stage most times, she drove home in tears and sorrow.
Lepacious Bose also revealed that she almost resorted to suicide due to the unending pain until her life changed five years ago.
“I love to take pictures and talk about my weight loss experience but that took over 25 years of my life.
I hated myself and was constantly suicidal yet I made people laugh (what an irony). I cracked jokes about my weight because it was the only way I knew to look like I didn’t care. Yet I cared!!! Countless times, I would have a great performance but drive home in tears, it was a crazy, roller coaster feeling. It was not just the weight it was much more but I could not explain it.”
“ I was scared. I would be on stage and have a brain fog and forget a joke right in the middle of delivery, just go blank, and have to come up with stuff on the spur of the moment to cover for the lapse, I started to dread performing. “It’s hard enough to loose weight but to loose weight while having hypothyroidism is almost like fighting demons, I just wanted to sleep and not wake up,” she recounted then on her Instagram page.
