“I’ve been overweight for about 20 years,” she told the outlet. “I started gaining weight when I was about 20. I had something called PCOS and I gained weight rapidly. It’s just a hormone imbalance and you gain a lot of weight usually and that’s how it manifested in me.
“Sometimes, I feel sad, but then at the same time, I worked my body to my advantage. I like being all sizes. It’s just now turning 40, I am more health-conscious and thinking of starting a family.”
The Hustle star, who has reached her goal weight of 75kg, has also discussed her struggles with emotional eating in the past, before deciding to completely overhaul her health and lifestyle.
“I think what I mainly suffered from was emotional eating and dealing with the stress of becoming famous internationally. There is a lot of stress that comes with it and I guess my way of dealing with it was just like eating a doughnut.”
