“My mom asked me if I want to join the BodyKey™ Shake It Up to lose weight, new product daw ang gagamitin. My motivation? Honestly, ayaw kong sumali at first because, in my mind: I’m okay with my body and shape. Hindi ko kailangang magbago. Pero eventually, sumagi sa akin na wala naman sigurong masamang subukan kung wala ring mawawala? Kaya nagbago ang isip ko at nag-decide na magparticipate.

It’s really funny looking back on my first two weeks during the pilot test. It was hard to adjust my eating habits because I like eating whenever I want. But under the program, I need to lessen my food intake and add exercise, at least 10,000 steps in my daily routine. The task was demanding.

After some time passed, the progress was slow. Hindi naman sa sumuko ako, but I was in deep thought. Bakit ba hindi ako pumapayat? Troubled with losing weight more, I began exploring more ways to help me with my journey. Unknowingly, doon na pala nagsimulang mas ma-involve ako sa process.

Dahil sa Shake It Up program, nabalik ko sa system ko ‘yung pag-eexercise. Kasi ever since na natigil ako sa pagpunta sa gym, tinamad na akong bumalik. Magkakaroon lang lagi ng cheat days, tapos I-do-double ang workout kapag madami ang kinain. Kaya nag-enjoy ako sa BodyKey™ kasi ‘di talaga ako nakasubok pa ng similar product dati. Kapag umiinom ako nito, ang laking tulong sa diet at sa pagtulog nang maaga.

Nagulat na lang ang mga kakilala ko kasi akala nila, at kahit ako rin sa sarili ko, hindi ako maglo-lose ng weight. But by reducing up to ten kilos, I did it. Ngayon, mas magaan sa pakiramdam at masasabi kong posible pala basta nasa tamang paraan. Alam kong hindi madali, pero kung i-mo-motivate ang sarili at i-didisiplina, magagawang magbawas ng timbang.

Syempre sa ngayon, tuloy lang ang pagpapapayat at exercise. Kapag may nagtanong man, sasabihin ko talagang maaasahan ang BodyKey™. Naglose ka na ng weight, naging healthy ka pa!”
