Angel Locsin went viral after uploading these photos on Instagram, showing her apparent weight loss on Tuesday, September 21.
Many were amazed at the progress made by the Kapamilya star, who has been open about her fitness journey that includes an 800-calorie diet with a health clinic.
Realizing the impact of her post, the actress went on her social media page again to set a reminder on everyone going through the same “struggle”.
“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 OOTDs or watched ‘Top Model’ know this,” she began.
“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,” Angel continued.
She believes that changing your body is hard enough, but it could be harder when you let words thrown by others affect your process. She also acknowledged that, though it’s easier said than done, loving how you look and feel should come first.
“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 wrote.
Speaking more about her personal experience, Angel added, “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.”
“I will not let anyone dictate my pace. But I am looking forward to what I can achieve in the next three months or so. Love you, fats and all,” Angel ended.
