    I’m pretty sure your reaction when you first read the title was, “What? 6 months? How is that even possible?” Yes, success doesn’t happen overnight. But with enough grit and consistency, you can achieve your dreams faster than you expect. I met Trizia at the Upper Deck Fitness Gym, she is one of the fitness coaches there. Before she got to where she is now, she had to overcome a lot of obstacles ON HER OWN.

     

    Here, she share her story:

     

    “Hind ako mataba kahit nung nanganak ako, di rin naman payat na payat sakto lang katawan ko. But since then nag iba rin lifestyle ko though di rin naman ako gym goer or healthy person dati pero nung nag work ako mas naging pangit lifestyle like I go out more often with friends and workmates, kain, inom, puyat. Almost everyday ganon. And my passion and love for food kasi iba din, I got so happy pag kumakain kaya wala ko pakialam nun sa health ko, di ko nga siya naiisip honestly. Hehe In short, I take my body for granted. Pagod, puyat, unhealthy lifestyle plus bisyo pa. No doubt ang bilis ko talaga lumaki to he point na lahat na nagsasabi na ang laki ko daw, dabyana, lumba lumba, baboy at lahat pa ng masasakit na tawag sa mataba narinig ko na pero dedma ako kasi kala ko ok pa ko.”

     

    Trizia loved her lifestyle at that time, it was her security blanket. However, the outcome of her habits did not serve her well. She started to lose her self-worth.

     

    “Ang sakit marinig pag pamilya mo na nagsabi. Na start ko narin makita na oo nga, di na tama, may mali. Wala ko masuot na mafefeel ko talaga na bagay sakin, na confident ako, akyat lang ako ng stairs grabe na hingal ko, may time pa na pag matutulog ako nahihirapan na ko huminga hanggang sa napapadalas na. Yung mga pants ko pag galing ko mag field work butas na yung crotch sa laki ng hita ko. As in, halos lahat ng pants ko ganon. Wala na ko masuot talaga.”

     

    It even got to a point where Trizia decided to leave her job and take a break from all the stress.

     

    So, bum life. Ok naman ako nung una kasi sabi ko at least may time ako for my daughter pero di nagtagal I got depressed. Mga maling desisyon sa buhay and past experiences bumalik. Sobrang down ko, di na ko nakikipag socialize, wala akong kinakausap, i spent my almost 24hrs ng everyday ko sa cellphone kakatingin or either kakaiyak. Halos di talaga ko makatulog, 2-3 hrs of sleep lang pag nagising ako pipilitin ko matulog para lang di ko mafeel ulit yung lungkot pero wala talaga akong tulog na matino. Iiyak nalang ulit, didn't get a chance to play with my daughter man lang, lagi akong galit literal! Sa lahat ng tao kahit simpleng bagay o kahit wala namang ginagawa. Di ko na kilala sarili ko non."

     

     

    Trizia’s peers encouraged her to seek professional help when she started to feel depressed. However, she had an inkling that it was still up to her if she wanted to change her body, and HER LIFE.

     

    She started to look jobs, but never got lucky at first.

     

    “Walang kumukuha sakin kahit sobrang impressed sila sa skills, experiences and personality ko kasi nga mataba ako.” Di naman nila sinasabi ng harapan pero alam ko na yun yung reason. Pero syempre fashion industry parin yun kahit anong galing ko itsura parin at unang una nilang titignan, katawan parin pagbabasehan.”

     

    Trizia thought that the only way to get her life back was to be healthy again. She knew she had to work really hard for it, but it didn’t matter anymore because she knew in her heart that it was worth it.

     

     

    "Sabi ko 'di pwede e, di pwedeng ganeto nalang ako, na tanggapin kong ganeto nalang talaga ako' so, I tried going into the gym again. I drag myself everyday para mag work out, nag start ako walking walking sa treadmill kasi sobrang nahihiya ako wala naman akong alam gawin. Tiyaga tiyaga, inaraw araw ko talaga plus araw araw din nagbabasa ako ng mga healthy eating habits so inincorporate ko naman, diet din ako, yes mahirap, mas madaming time na nag fail pero try lang ulit. Daming time na muntik na ko sumuko kasi di ko makita yung result ng pinaghihirapan ko pero sabi ko kung ititigil ko na naman wala na naman mangyayare. I've been through a lot in life and kinaya ko etong pagpapapayat di ko pa magawa? Hindi pwedeng walang mangyare kasi kung may mga success story na nagawa ng ibang tao yun dapat ako, kaya ko rin! So, sabi ko sige tuloy ko pa tiis lang, push pa. Eliminate ng mga unhealthy food esp. carbs, lahat ng food na ma sodium, junk food,processed food and fatty food, which is all my weakness hehe Yung rice ko dati na isang kaldero hahaha naging 2 cups, naging 1 and 1 half tapos eventually naging 1 cup, tuloy lang sa pag woworkout hanggang kaya ng half cup until masanay ng wala. Binubusog ko nalang yung sarili ko sa mas healthy na food. Pag mag carbs ako sa morning lang full meal para lang I have energy throughout the day. I stick to my diet, exercise and I give my self enough sleep din.”

     

    The results of her efforts made Trizia feel good about herself.

     

    “Eventually, nakikita ko sarili ko na nagiging masaya na ulit ako, nakikipag usap sa mga tao, tumatawa, inaappreciate yung mga bagay bagay, grateful to everything, hindi na ko madalas mainit ulo at magalit. Napansin ko rin na wow, bumaba na timbang ko. I rarely weigh myself, ayaw ko chine-check weekly kasi ayaw ko mag expext tapos pag wala ako makita maffrustrate ako. Basta pag nag work out ako I pushed myself to the limit. So medyo nabalik ko na konti konti yung confidence sa sarili. I changed my routine sa gym, kakabasa, kaka research nag try ako ng ibang gagawin bukod sa mag cardio. Body weights muna, how to do it with the correct form, hanggang sa mag try na ko mag add ng weights sa routine ko. I always fuel my body rin ng quality food before and after, never ko ginutom yung sarili ko kasi di ako naniniwala na you should starve yourself para lang ma achieve yung katawang gusto mo. My goal kasi is not just to have a beautiful body, number one concern ko rin is maging healthy and maging strong. Kasi I admit na super weak ko before dahil sa mga pinag gagawa kong abuso sa katawan ko. I continued to be strong and healthy, hanggang ma achieve ko yung goal ko na weight. Pero after ko ma achieve yon hindi parin ako tumigil.”

     

    Even if Trizia achieved her dream body and lifestyle, she still goes on. She loved how her new lifestyle had a positive impact on her life. She also believes that there is always room for improvement, so constantly working to be a better version of herself, day in day out.

     

    “Wag kang makontento na dun nalang, hindi don matatapos ang trabaho. Kasi pag nakontento ka nalang don, yun ka nalang. hindi mo alam ano pang kaya mong makuha kung di mo susubukan ulit. for me di naman masama mag aim ng mas higher para sa sarili mas hindi magandang masanay na mag settle less hindi mo kasi makikita how strong you are pala, di mo maboboost yung confidence at trust mo sa sarili mo.”
