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,
My weight from these pictures range from 52-56kg.. After college I worked as an IT Recruiter (still connected with the same company ☺) first months were the worst month of my weight. It shoot up! I almost weighed 65kg.
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 ☺
