Kapamilya celebrity actress Angel Locsin shared updates on her health and fitness journey through a set of mirror selfies posted on Instagram, September 22.
Angel wrote “Remember to love every inch of you” to the caption with recent photos of her slimmer body figure wearing workout outfits.
Angel Locsin’s post both trended on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
Fellow showbiz celebrities like Bea Alonzo, Ryza Cenon, Dionne Monsanto, and Marian Rivera immediately reacted to her post with admiration and positive reactions.
Her husband Neil Arce even commented, “On my way.”
Last June, Angel started on an 800-kilocalorie diet as recommended by a health clinic for weight loss.
In 2015, Angel suffered a spinal injury that restricted her from doing physical activities like running, twisting, and jumping.
Furthermore, Angel revealed in an online show last July that she has been on a weight loss fitness journey for her health.
“Ginagawa ko ‘yon for myself…for my health talaga. Maraming salamat dahil na-vaccinate tayo, nakikita natin yung blood pressure natin. So yung sa akin, mataas. Mataas siya, kaya kailangan kong pagtuunan ng pansin talaga. It’s not really for vanity, siguro bonus na lang din ‘yon. Pero hinahabol natin, yung importante, maalagaan natin yung sarili natin,”, she said.
[“I do that for myself, for my health. Thankfully, I was vaccinated, got updated on blood pressure. Mine was high. That’s why I need to pay attention. The weight loss journey is not really for vanity. Let’s take that as a bonus. What’s important is to take care of ourselves.”]
“Sa mga gusto pala mag-diet, gawin niyo para sa sarili niyo, hindi para sa ibang tao…Kasi kahit na ano mang weight natin, ano mang itsura natin, you’re perfect, you’re you, you’re unique. Own it,” the actress added.
[“For all who plan to do the diet, do it for yourself, not for other people. Whatever your weight, physical appearance, you’re perfect. You’re you. You’re unique. Own it.”]
Moreover, Angel followed up her viral post with inspiring words in a separate Facebook post for those who are struggling with their weight loss journey.
“Hello everyone! About my recent post that became viral, first, I want to say that knowing how to pose the right way can help you look slimmer. I think everyone who posts ootd’s or watched Top model knows this”, she started her post.
“So for those struggling to lose that extra weight, please don’t feel pressured. I tell you that I understand that it’s not easy, having been fighting weight gain for years. Pressure did not and will not help. Just take your time. Your body, your rules. Just don’t forget to love every inch of you in the process, no matter what other people may say. You are more than your weight or how you look. What’s important is how you feel and think of yourself. Shine. Don’t let the perception of others dim your light. I know you are trying. I know it’s hard. I understand.”, she advised.
“Second, slowly, yes I was able to slim down—but I’m acknowledging that I’m still a work in progress. Though I feel good now. I’ve been taking care of my health and trying out something new. I will share with you my process and journey some other time when I’m more confident na. But this is not without struggles and bumps” she added.
“I will not let anyone dictate my pace. But I am looking forward to what I can achieve in the next 3 months or so. Love you, fats and all ” Angel wrote.
