Popular Ghanaian actress, Benedicta Gafah, has revealed the extreme lengths she went in order to become a model.
According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, she stated that she often stayed days without food, because she desired to lose weight.
In a post on Instagram, a social media platform, the actress disclosed that the decision was taken a long time ago, and growing up, all she desired was to be a size 8.
In that respect, she went on, she adopted extreme measures in order to achieve her aim.
Benedicta further revealed that she gradually hated herself because of her plump body.
She often felt that there were times her body simply refused to aid her in her quest to slim down.
Eventually, she had to accept herself, she says, as she came to realize that beauty comes in a variety of shapes.
The actress stated that anyone could be of any size or shape and still look beautiful. This, she added is especially true if it is complemented 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,” she advised.
Benedicta concluded by saying that at times, a feeling of insecurity overwhelms people, especially in relation to some aspects of their lives.
