A lot of people have made a lot of remarks about the weight of Ulrika Jonsson, who does look very skinny, but those questioning her diet are way off the mark. Ulrika claims that the key reason that she is so skinny is because she suffers from a chronic back condition and she admits that she is very much a lover of food.
Jonsson explained, “Let's make no bones about it: I'm skinny. I'm thin. Far be it from me to try to convince you otherwise. I am, indeed, slighter than I was two years ago. I should have known after donning a skin-tight dress to dance on Let's Dance For Sport Relief that there would, once again, be "concerns" about my size. And yet, I doubt I have the answers anyone wants to hear. I suffer from a chronic back condition which was the cause of the majority of my weight loss.”
She added, “Five years ago my back gave up the ghost and following my last painful pregnancy, which saw me balloon to 14 stone, it took me 18 months to shed the baby weight. After that, the chronic pain from my back sent me into depression. As anyone who suffers from long-term pain knows, it takes over your life and, for me, it took away my appetite — for food and life itself.”
Ulrika Jonsson has not only been criticised for her weight but people have also mocked her neck, which has been compared to that of an elderly woman. However, Ulrika is happy with the way she looks and feels good in herself, so far be it for any of us to question her. Feeling good in your own skin is what life is all about, so fair play to Ulrika Jonsson.
