Sharon Cuneta’s inspiring journey to good health and body love

Ever heard about timelines?

Well, we all have our own. While some may take only a year to achieve their goal, others may take a lot longer—and that’s totally fine. After all, what matters is the progress we’re making and the efforts we’re putting forth day by day, despite the bumps on the road.

Case in point: Sharon Cuneta, whose journey to good health and body love started in January 2016. In an Instagram post, she revealed that was the time she started dieting and it went “on and off (more off than on),” she opened up.

In 2020, the singer-actress, who has always been beautiful, posted a video of herself getting on the treadmill for the first time in a very long time at a 3.5 speed. “I used to be able to do an hour at a speed of six while watching Oprah and inclining my treadmill so it would look like I'm going uphill,” she said. “But this is all I can do for now.”

Fast forward to 2021, she stunned her followers with an Instagram post, where she shared her progress in a size 10 swimsuit. “I haven’t been a 10 in many years. My normal size when I was thin was 6 or 8, and I would panic na ‘pag 8,” she captioned the snap.

“Now, to get to size 6 means I need to lose the last 20 lbs. after so many years of trying to get rid of all this extra weight and losing anywhere from 60 to 80 lbs., 20 doesn’t seem like too much work anymore,” Sharon continued.

Again, she surprised netizens with another photo showing her continued health transformation just last month, clarifying it wasn’t edited.

With only a few more pounds to lose before she reaches her ideal weight, Sharon revealed she’s at her happiest. “I really have not been this happy in many years. You can always see the real state of my heart in my eyes,” she admitted on IG as she mused how hard her journey has been.

The showbiz veteran teased she has lots of surprises in store for her fans. “For now, please be happy that I am very happy. My heart is alive and jumping for joy,” she said.

Sharon is currently working on her new film Revirginized with actor Marco Gumabao as her leading man.
