Actress Benedicta Gafah has said she stayed days without food just because she wanted to lose weight to become a model.
The actress who disclosed this in a post on Instagram said “Growing up I always wanted to be a model, so much so that I literally used to starve in order to lose weight. I wanted to be a size 8 at all cost and I went to great lengths in a bid to achieve that dream. I hated myself so much, especially my plumpy body. There were many times I felt my body was just being “stubborn” and preventing me from becoming great????????????.
But I eventually had to accept myself and the fact that beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and forms. And that one could be size 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and so on and still look beautiful, especially when it is coupled with a beautiful heart and a positive mindset.
Your pretty face and beautiful body could easily attract people to you but your good heart and character will endear you to people and allow them to enjoy your company.
