Sharon Cuneta is determined to continue losing weight in spite of her hectic schedule


040111-sharon_main.jpgSharon Cuneta said that she has slowed down with her weight reduction program lately because of her very hectic schedule. “Dahan-dahan nalu-lose, I haven’t had time lately to go to Marie France (the slimming center she endorses) kasi araw-araw may trabaho ako pero kahit stressed tuloy-tuloy pa rin although slower. So the minute na may puwang talaga papa-treatment ako kaagad,” she explained. Currently, Sharon has The Sharon Cuneta Special, which will run for five Sundays. Afterwards, she is slated to host the local edition of The Biggest Loser.

The Megastar also revealed that she seldom checks her weight. “Kasi minsan if you think you lost more than you actually have, baka mabagalan ka o ma-frustrate ka. Minsan we expect too much of ourselves pero ang nangyayari usually iniisip mo baka ganito lang pero may extra pound pala na na-lose mo. Pero alam ko ‘pag medyo lumuluwag na ‘yung mga damit mo, [sasabihin mo] pa-weigh nga, patingin nga.

The actress-host said that she continues to slowly shed extra pounds and she gets encouragement when others notice the difference. “Medyo pumapalakpak ang puso ko. It encourages me. ‘Yun bang ‘pag nagpapayat ka parang mas nawawalan ka ng motivation ‘pag may nagsabing, ‘Ang taba mo,’ pero hindi nila alam naka-lose ka ng five lbs kasi ‘di pa na-appreciate kasi malaki ang kailangan mong i-lose. Gusto ko talaga ‘pag na-lose ko na ‘yung extra weight maging remarkable ‘yung change, makabalik ako sa dati.”

She is also hoping that the issue about her weight will finally be put to rest, after the controversial word-war she had with Hayden Kho, who supposedly criticized the billboard for the slimming center she endorses. “Sana tapos na, nasabi ko ‘yung kailangang sabihin. I’ve moved on. Kung may mga susunod pa, basta ako wala akong dinagdag, nasaktan. Laging nagre-react ako, hindi ako nag-uumpisa ng kahit anong issue. Kung meron mang gusto pang manakit sa akin, please try harder,” she quipped.

She added that she chooses her battles and would rather not focus on issues that are just a waste of time and effort. “There are better things to focus on and more lovely people to think about.”

Sharon continued that she did not set out to hurt anyone with the previous issue with Hayden and justified that she only reacted because she was just human, who was affected by the criticisms. “Siguro ‘pag natapos na ‘to wala akong utang, sila ang may utang sa akin,” she said.

When Push.com.ph asked the Megastar if the criticisms she received about her weight increased her desire to prove her detractors wrong, she replied, “Nakadagdag siguro pero hindi talaga. From the very beginning I’ve resolved to go to my ideal weight, eh because of… let’s say all the people that sincerely love me want to see me succeed. They’re (detractors) not my priority pero nakakatuwa, may dagdag challenge pero hindi ‘yun ang main na pumapasok sa isip ko.”
