“Dreams come true.”
This was the caption of Megastar Sharon Cuneta for a photo she posted two days ago on Instagram.
It was a side-by-side photo of herself in 2013 and 2019, which shows how much weight the actress has lost since then.
By “dreams”, the mom of four and wife to Senator Kiko Pangilinan was referring to her weight loss journey, which she has admitted to struggle with in the past years.
“I AM GONNA ROCK A BIKINI AGAIN. I made that promise to myself! Before everything goes south. LOL,” the 53-year-old actress captioned another Instagram post in May 2019, which is a photo of her younger self in a two-piece swimsuit.
And it looks like she’s getting there, slowly but surely.
In this photo from 2016, Sharon expressed her determination, saying, “I made a vow to myself: That I would not stop until I looked in the mirror and saw the ‘real me’ again. Because these first two pictures never were. I never felt right and ‘I’ inside was dying to come out again.”
“Two years after I started changing my lifestyle and eating habits. I was and still am doing it for ME. And I want to live a long, healthy life for and with my children and future grandchildren,” she added.
As a result of this lifestyle change, Sharon has been noticeably losing weight over the last few months. She has also been posting photos from 2017 and 2018, possibly to keep her motivated to achieve her weight goal.
In her latest before-and-after photo, Sharon may have revealed her secret to her radiant new self. Replying to a certain Dr. Z Teo in the comments section, Sharon wrote, “Emsculpt I LOOOOVE HYOOOOOO!!!! Hahahaha! Wish I could go everyday!!!”
Dr. Z Teo is an aesthetic surgeon and the husband of Dr. Aivee Teo of The Aivee Clinic, one of the more popular skin care and cosmetic clinics in the country.
According to its Facebook page, Emsculpt is a body-contouring technology that simultaneously burns fat and builds muscles in the right places, giving one a more firm and toned physique with just a few sessions.
Sharon’s weight loss has inspired many of her followers, who all expressed admiration for her drive to lose weight not only to look good but also to be healthier for the sake of her family.
Besides TV guestings and a forthcoming concert, Sharon has also been playing the part of proud mama to youngest daughter Miel, who received numerous school awards in May. She is also busy preparing for daughter Frankie’s move to New York in August for college.
She may still be a work in progress, but Sharon proves that it’s never too late to set goals and achieve them.
