Finally!

Yes! Finally I will open up and share about my weight journey. Ever since I was a child I am more than my ideal weight. Growing up like that have ups and downs. My parents told me that I was cute but my brothers and sisters will say that I am chubby. More than that some relatives and classmates will tease me. Sometimes I get affected but I always shrugged it off. Until highschool, I am still more than my ideal weight though not up to the point of being obese. On my second year, I tried to go to a fitness gym then loose some pounds but eventually gave it up and almost back to my being chubby on my 4th year.

I am the one on the left ☺

I didn’t mind if people will tease me but I will not lie that my feelings were hurt whenever they call me “taba” or “baboy” or “biik”. In those moments, feeling ko nga positive na yung Chubby rather than Baboy. Haha. But those didn’t motivate me to loose weight until I was in college. Depression and somehow insecurities arise when I enter college. This time mas matindi na the asaran and being compared were always happening. And someone told me na never na daw ako papayat those words struck me so hard! I tried loads of diet meaning starving myself. Haha. This time naging sakitin narin ako lalo and my lungs and heart got weak.

Here are some of my pictures,

December 2012

It didn’t matter that much to me, I always say that I am secured and what’s important is the beauty inside. Well, this is 100% true BUT my health suffered. Had problems with my joints and back. And of course this isn’t good for my asthma. My turning point came in on September 2013, if I want to honor the Lord I should also honor Him in my health and also I am accountable what’s happening in my body. I have been praying for complete healing but I am not disciplined enough. From there I started to change my lifestyle ☺ Changing my eating habits, getting more active. Since then I started loosing some pounds from 143.3 lbs now I weigh 129 lbs ☺

This isn’t an easy thing.. I needed self discipline, motivation and support. Of course I stumble dapat nga 125lbs nalang ako kaso napabayaan ko rin but I made sure to get back on track. Praise God for people who reminded me why I am doing this in times that I wanted to give, people reminding me in times that I am forgetting what’s my goal and people who appreciate it. There’s still 29 lbs to loose. Yay!!! I won’t take any shortcut. Hard work kung hard work ☺

Monday Night: GG Girls

God blessed me with relationships to keep for a lifetime. He made sure that I am not alone. Thank you Lord for such blessings ☺ I’ve met these girls in the office and we started having Monday night sharing since September last year. By that time, my supposedly resignation did not pushed through for some reasons. Honestly speaking I was really disappointed to myself and was totally down BUT the voice of God is clear and He gave me peace when I came to the point of giving up my own emotions. Days after that devastation (Ah ah! Kala mo naman devastating talaga. Sorry! Emotional lang po! :D) one of my office mates approached me and gave an idea of starting a this Monday group. We were only 5 by that time then eventually we invited more people. It was just sad because two girls had moved on to another work but I know for sure that they are in good hands as long as they are with God ☺

Now, I am so amazed of what God is doing to these girls ☺ I can’t wait for more.. I am excited to see their prayers being answered. I am always ready to cry with them if needed. Will always laugh with them.

Hebrews 10:25

Not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another–and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Discipleship 2014

Last February 1, 2014 all victory group leaders and possible leaders gathered for the #Discipleship2014 in different Victory Centers. Almost 10, 000 people gathered in different parts of the Philippines. It was a great privileged to be part of the said event. It was also encouraging to hear testimonies of people being led to God and people doing the work for the Lord. Such an amazing time.

And because I am part of Victory Makati, the event was held in RCBC Makati at 10:30AM but I was there at 9AM for the registration.

A lot of people also came in early to check the merchandise..

I get to know new people ☺ And I’m so blessed to meet students in School of World Missions.

Lord, are you going to send me to the nations? Yay!!! Whatever or wherever it is Lord, I am ready! ☺

So now.. Let the games beging ☺

The event started on getting to know people around and we never forget to have a group picture.

Pastor Steve Murell the founding Pastor of Victoty Philippines and the President of Every Nation shared encouraging words to us. He point out that we will continue to disciple people and raise up leaders. ☺

They also launched iLead: Identify, Instruct, Impart and Intern. This is how we can raise leaders ☺

The event was a bang! And we ended singing praise to the Lord and celebrate His goodness

And so the question is, Who’s NEXT?

Yes! We are NEXT!

Matthew 28:19-20

19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

 

BUKAL FALLS

Ever since I am the most outgoing in our family,  well, that’s very true. I honestly can’t stay at home the whole day. During breaks or weekends I made sure that I’ll be meeting friends or going somewhere. And my best therapy for stress is go out and explore the nature. Just this Monday, my ever supportive boyfriend decided to join me on a trek. I am so blessed to have someone who can ride on this kind of adventure. :)And so.. We decided to visit Bukal Falls as known by people from Majayjay and Kilangin as known by people of Liliw. I did some research and found some bloggers who visited the place. Upon reading blogs I got so excited and would want fast track the days. Indeed, Bukal falls is a good destination.

We headed to Pagsanjan at 7AM and took a jeppney going to Sambat ng Majayjay. The jeepney driver was kind enough to help us get a tricycle to bring us to Brgy Bukal, Majayjay. The driver dropped us to the Baranggay Hall and people there were really nice. After we registered, one of theBrgy Tanod guided us all the way up to the falls.

I can say that it was an easy trail except for the masukal na daan.
 
It was muddy because of rains the other day..
This was the hardest part for me..
Kuya was kind enough to make us a baston so it won’t be too much difficult.
Oh yeah! And we’re approaching Bukal Falls 🙂 At this point, we can hear the roar of the water.
After a 45mins walk. Finally!!!

After reaching the falls, we still need to cross the river to see the bigger falls.

Yay! This is it!
Benj was excited to dip into the water but me OMG!! the water was cold so I decided to watch him nalang
It was all worth it. Go and visit Bukal Falls 🙂
