Ini Edo’s Letter to Fans on Weight Concerns
“This is to all of my loyal fans who have had weight concerns… There’s been lots of questions thrown at me via social media n beyond about my weight loss . As much as i do not live my life based on any ones dictate, am also a realist. Now, I’ve always said this and proud of it, I was born chubby. I’ve been that way for years. Had all d major endorsement deals , acted in over 300 movies in that my chubby state and most of you accepted me like that cos all I had or came to offer was the talent God gave me.
Ur size or shape doesn’t determine who you are, how successful u can be or how acceptable u will be. The world will always be unsatisfied with what ever situation u present to them. Ini… Ur too fat ohhh she’s too slim kilodeeeeee ???? My point is.. Be urself once ur happy with urself, everything else is inconsequential. We all have our individual problems.
Some people find succor in social media by playing ghost and spitting flames in de dark to mask their bitterness. Don’t look at them. Take care of urself. What I did? I hit de gym, reduced my carb to de barest minimum, lots of green tea n lemon and detox. It’s extreme discipline. I had Thai noodles today and seafood wooooh I enjoyed it. Hmmm yea too much carbs but it is what is. However, if u loose weight to impress anyone, u will be depressed cos after all of that hard work, those complaints will take the direct opposite dimension.
Lesson is … Love urself cos world people WILL ALWAYS have something to say. It’s standard.”
