Talented comedienne, Bose Ogunboye, popularly known as Lepacious Bose yesterday, took a trip down memory lane, revealing how the devil stole her happiness for 25 years, not just because she was obese but also, because she had to cope with hypothyroid.
Lepacious Bose made this startling revelation on her Instagram page yesterday. 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, 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 on her Instagram page. The comedienne’s weight loss journey which started about four years ago has yielded substantial results that earned her a roaring applause from her male colleagues and fans.
