UMALMA ang Kapuso actress na si Chynna Ortaleza sa mga etchoserong palaging tinatanong kung bakit malaki ang kanyang ipinayat.
Ipinaliwanag nito sa kanyang social media na may dinaramdam itong medical condition na naging sanhi ng kanyang pagpayat. Gayunpaman, sinabi rin niya na mas feeling healthy ito sa kanyang current weight.
“I am 86 lbs as of today. But happy that my gut is recovering and that I am free of joint pains & headaches.
The past 6 months have tested me. You know the saying, “Aim for progress & not perfection?” Well.. I have to keep repeating this to myself so that I can celebrate my small wins.
Before the pandemic I was 109 lbs. a steady weight after giving birth to my second child. When the pandemic hit, all of us had to make really drastic adjustments. I noticed I would always have gut problems. Feeling acidic, problematic stools, dull pain on my side. So I took all the tests & scans I could take (you name it, I took it) and decided to also get to the root cause of my issues. Thank God, all my tests are normal.. but I did learn a lot of things about my body because of my food intolerance test that was facilitated by my team @lifesciencephil (no this isn’t a paid post. I am so grateful to them really! They push me to take care of myself.)
The test revealed my intolerances. Gluten, Dairy, Eggs, Corn, etc.. I honestly felt sad because everything I used to eat & loved had all of this! I had to take them out of my system for 3-4 months! I had to reprogram for the best. I started eating what was right for my body.
So yup, that caused a drastic drop in my weight but atleast I gave my gut the much needed pampering. Giving it probiotics, learning to masticate properly & trying to hydrate properly.
The past months I have started to reintroduce the no-no’s on my chart.. and will also need to start building muscle. I pray that God will continue to light my way as I reconstruct the physical body that he has gifted this soul.
I also learned that GRIEF & PTSD reflects on one’s body and I have to go through this to get through it. I am in the thick of this so please be kind.
I lost so many loved ones.. and mourn for what we used to enjoy as beings. I have plenty of traumas that I am currently dissecting.
Let’s all take it easy on each other. Most of the time what you see is never ever surface deep.” pagtatapos nito.
