BodyKey™ Stories: Mind is Power

WORDS BY MICHAEL KO, AS TOLD TO RENZNEIL ROBLES

“Kilala ko ang sarili ko. Alam ko ang mental strength ko and ayaw kong mapahiyang hindi ko kaya.

I became a BodyKey™ Shake It Up ambassador through the encouragement of a neighbor. She knew my unhealthy lifestyle and bad habits. Ako naman, I also crave for physical improvement since aware akong hindi na magandang tignan ‘yung previous body ko. When I decided to say yes, nagpaalam pa ako sa wife ko kasi big commitment ito. Sinabi ko pa sa kanyang huwag akong itetempt at mababawasan din ang mga paglabas namin since there will be times na hindi ako sasabay kumain.

When it comes to struggle in the weight loss program, it was really about managing the cheat days. As a social butterfly, ang daming events na pinupuntahan kapag weekends gaya ng binyag, birthday parties, and family gathering. Pero hindi sa gutom o exercise ang naging challenge, kasi binigyan ko talaga ng time and sacrifice. Ang mindset ko is proving to myself my capabilities and ‘yung image na kayo ko lahat.

At kinaya ko nga, I lost about thirty pounds under the 90-day program duration. What I cherish the most from the experience is getting involved in a community of like-minded individuals with whom I share the same goals. Iyong mga kasama ko, iba-iba man kami ng background ay same kami ng objective na maging fit and healthy. Hindi lang superficial magbawas ng timbang, dapat in a sustainable way.

Iba na ang tingin ko sa long-term benefits ng being consistently healthy. I plan to maintain the practices I learned dahil saying ang progress at ang magagandang feedback. As someone who has also become an individual with more stories to tell, I want to inspire and guide other people to fitness.

Whenever they ask what I did, I mention Amway Philippines. When they asked for more about it, I emphasized BodyKey™ Meal Replacement Shake. I boast that it works.”
