Maureen Kunga has been in the blogs for all the expected reasons. Her voluptuous self has attracted a ton of articles with the bulk being about her beauty and such.
What her facade never revealed was that while everyone else was drooling for her, she was struggling with that weight and really wanted to be in better shape. She showed up but she was struggling through it all from styling to performances.
The advocate of the high Court narrates this in YouTube video and a long post on Instagram detailing her journey thus far.
The 16 kilo difference in weight is very evident on her timeline.

Long. Long. Truthful. Post. This is both a very scary thing to do and something that is giving me so much pride today. I achieved something I had never thought possible and I'm proud of myself for it. For years, my weight was a genuine cause of pain – something I never openly discussed, maybe because of fear of insult, maybe because it was truly something that I thought I would never be able to overcome. Maybe because I was truly embarrassed and ashamed to be so heavy. I tried and failed, used horrible "quick-result" methods of weight loss that never stuck. I broke myself down in my mind and could not see myself as anything other than a "fat girl". I destroyed my own self esteem. But in 2016 I made the decision that I would stop punishing myself and I would give myself permission to take my weight-loss into my own hands and find something I can commit to. And here we are! 16kgs (and a few to go), and a whole lot of self esteem later, I am happy, and I am proud. The entire video explaining my journey to health is in the link in my bio. I would love it if you would watch it and we can compare notes and discuss our experiences. Then subscribe to my brand new YouTube channel(!!!!) and let's find a sustainable way to health together! (Side Note: I was VERY shocked when I saw a TBT of the old picture on the internet. I immediately went to find that dress, wore it, and had to hold it taut behind me for it to look normal. I don't know if I've ever been so proud of myself, and that green dress represents a lot for me now) Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Nothing is for everybody. This was for me, and I would love to create a platform where we can all know that beauty is DEFINITELY not skin deep! It took me chasing a healthy lifestyle to truly learn that♥♥♥ And I would like to wish myself a happy birthday and pat myself on the back. Because I did a good thing for myself.
