I've always been afraid of the weighing scale. Di ko sya makaharap. Ayoko makipagtalo sa kanya! Haha! Kada inom ko kasi ng tubig, iba na kaagad ang nakareflect na numbers sa kaniya!
Nakakatawa na ang first article ko ever na napublish sa mainstream magazine was on my weight issues:
Candy Jan-Feb 2006 (click to read whole article :))
Partida naka all-black pako nyan a, hahaha. :p
Matagal-tagal din before ko naget-over ang body issues ko, nagkatime na I even resorted to diet pills pero narealize ko di na nga siya healthy, di pa tatagal yun effects niya (Pinimples pako!!!). Effective kung effective, pero naging dependent ako, kaya nun tinigil ko yun pills, balik din sa dati. Feel ko nga mas sobra pa nga ata ang bounce ng weight. Di ako proud sa phase nato. Mukha akong adik!
Ang masama, walang one month tong weight loss nato!
Anyway, as I gained more mature view on body-love, and naging vegetarian pa ako, I realized that mas gusto ko pang slowly but surely ang weightloss...At least hindi yung makakasama sa akin in the long run. Limited na ang food options ko, so I don't deprive myself sa other good foods na I eat...Like chocolates, chips, and fatty sauces like sour cream or Mexican garlic sauce (salap!). I looove pasta and pizza and potatoes...So kamusta naman sa carbs diba hahaha. May phase ako na naeenjoy ko ang akyat-baba hagdan exercise ko, and effective siya talaga at maganda ang pagkakapayat (hindi mukang adik), but right now na suuuuper pagod and busy palagi, I can't find the time to exercise!
Kaya napaka timely nga naman ng Fit and Right event na I attended awhile ago in One Rockwell.
Weight loss in bottles!
Dahil medyo naadik ako sa The Secret and nirerely ko lately ang weight ko with thinking na ''hindi ako tataba'' mindset (uy infer effective sya ha, hehe), but then I thought maganda padin na may healthy lifestyle. Hindi lang para pumayat...Pero ang goal ko talaga is maging healthy and fit.
Went with Krissy, and when we got in, we were led to the 3 different booths in the venue:
First: Fitness Booth with Sir Raul Banzon
Timbangan time! Di na ako nahiya, got my weight, fat mass, and body fat percentage, plus free consultation with fitness guru Sir Raul. Learned that I am under ''acceptable weight''--considering my age and height! Yey!
Second: The Sexy Chef
Met Ms. Sexy Chef Barni Alejandro, and got ideas on good AND healthy diet (through alternatives and portions!)
Some interesting foods on display:
The interesting Fit n Right Salad Dressing!
Learned that they also have vegetarian menu! Would want to know more about that next time! :)
Third: The House of Laurel
Got measured by Sir Rajo Laurel's really nice team!
And of course, personally met the famous designer!
Nastarstruck meee! Hehe!
''Itwitpic niyo ha!'' He's super nice! :)
After going through the different booths and processes, had our healthy lunch!
My great company: Clarisse, Mother Earth, and Krissy!
Then, the program started!
Sir Rajo: Fitness is Fashion!
Then we learned about the improved formulation of an already good drink! (Ano pang mahihiling mo, haha)
The New and Improved Del Monte Fit ‘n Right harnesses the science of sexy and captured it in a bottle, to amplify your weight loss efforts. Along with L-Carnitine, every Fit ‘n Right bottle now contains Green Coffee Extract, to help the body block calories from sugars and burn fat! This patented formulation results to greater overall fat loss than ever before, with just one bottle a day.
After that, nalaman nalang namin that they have a super exciting 30 Day Challenge for all the guests!
A cute Nike gym bag, a 30-day supply of Fit 'n Right (to be delivered in our houses), and a one month membership in Gold's Gym covered--we are in on our very own Biggest Loser challenge! Siyempre game na game ako!
Progress will be checked in two weeks (sa gym na)...Final measurements will be done after 30 days!
Everyone signed up for their free 30-day Gold's Gym membership!
Siyempre for me, mag lose lang ako ng weight in time for Pasko and New Year kainan, winner nako! But then, ang lakas makamotivate din ng prizes! :)
...And a trip for two to Bora--all expense paid! Syempre irampa ang new fit form sa beach! Bongga!
Thank you Fit n Right for this fun fun fun challenge!
Met Sir Art of The Biggest Loser Philippines! Isa siya sa fave ko non, very inspirational palagi ang words niya! :)
These kids were able to lose a lot of weight through proper diet, exercise, and Fit n Right! Inspiring!
