Naomi Long has been in the public spotlight for almost 20 years as a politician. She is one of Northern Ireland’s most well-known and powerful politicians, but she is undeterred by her weight. Previously, the Irish politician became the victim of body shaming when Jude Collins, the long-time journalist speculated that she may be suffering from a medical condition.

At that time, following his viewing of the Northern Ireland politician on TV, Mr. Collins penned a blog post in which he stated:  “Naomi’s weight problem – I’m assuming it’s a medical condition – is what hits you between the eyes when she comes on TV.” Mr. Collins also stated on his blog that he had “no doubt that it’s a worrying thing for her,” prompting Ms. Long, the Northern Ireland Alliance leader, to respond to the commentator.

Naomi Long later publicly chastised Jude Collins after the media analyst made inappropriate remarks regarding her weight. The legislator opened a Facebook post by saying, “This may be the one and only time I ever share anything written by Jude Collins, and it isn’t to praise it. That my ‘weight problem’ is the first thing to hit him between the eyes when I’m on TV is evidence not of my weight, but his problem. I wasn’t aware Jude was either invested enough in my health to care or medically qualified enough to comment: however, I am absolutely certain he doesn’t know me or what concerns me at all, and has no right to speculate.”

Actually, Naomi Long has been misdiagnosed for many years. She has a hidden ailment that affects her skin called Endometriosis. Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue identical to that which borders the uterus grows in locations where it does not belong. It causes deposits of tissue that operate similarly to the tissue lining the uterus to form outside the uterus. With each period, this tissue thickens, breaks down, and bleeds. However, the blood is unable to leave the body and becomes trapped.

Endometriosis can cause painful periods. Heavy bleeding or discomfort may occur during s*x, as well as during a bowel movement or peeing. Endometriosis is also associated with difficulty conceiving. Pain relievers and hormone treatment may help. Minor surgery to remove endometriosis deposits may aid in fertility. It can also help with severe pain.

However, Naomi Long was elected to the Northern Ireland Assembly while concealing her endometriosis diagnosis. Later, she stated that she was hesitant to discuss it publicly. But, she eventually chose to make the news public. She believed that by doing so, more women would seek medical attention.

Nevertheless, Naomi Long now appears to be in better shape with her recent weight loss. Surgery, diet, or health condition, anything could be the reason behind her transformation. We will certainly get back to you as soon as we get any further information. Regardless of her weight, she is a fearless politician and a wonderful role model for body image. If she desires, losing a stone in a month with the appropriate food and activity may be doable after visiting a doctor or dietitian.
