Judy Ann Santos says she wants to lose weight before doing movies again


040611-juday_main.jpgNow that she’ll soon be back on television as the host of the new reality cooking show Junior MasterChef Philippines, everyone is now awaiting for the time when Judy Ann Santos will do her next movie. Although there are talks that she is set to star in a movie with Sharon Cuneta and Sarah Geronimo, the 32-year-old actress said she is not ready yet for the big screen.

After an almost 10-month hiatus before and after giving birth to Baby Lucho, Judai said she wants to work on slimming down first before accepting any new projects. “Kasi gusto ko sa pagbabalik ko nasa tamang katawan ako. Ayoko naman na sabihin na ang tagal-tagal mong nawala, sabi mo magpapapayat ka, hindi naman pala nangyari. So parang challenge na rin sa akin na ibalik ko yung katawan ko bago ako nabuntis para masaya. Para confident pa rin ako sa mga gagawin kong mga trabaho,” she said.

The Lactum milk powder endorser also shared how she has already been working hard on getting her pre-pregnancy body back.  “I plan to [lose weight] the natural way. I started going back to the gym when Lucho turned three months kasi yun yung tamang proseso daw na pagpapahingahin mo muna yung katawan mo after nine months of pregnancy and giving birth. So on the third month, saka pa lang ako nag-takbo takbo paunti-unti para hindi mabinat. Nag-ji-gym, nagda-diet. Nag-yo-yoga ako and I run around our village. Paiba-iba pero hindi ko sinasagad kasi ayokong maumay ako sa pag-di-diyeta so diet tapos magbre-break ng konti, kakain tapos babalik sa dating kain. Ini-enjoy ko lang kasi I promised myself na i-enjoyin ko lang itong nangyayari sa akin ngayon kasi mula eight years old naman nagtrabaho ako so eto lang talaga yung first time ako nagpahinga ng ganito kahaba. So na-enjoy ko talaga siya ng husto. Parang kulang pa nga (laughs),” she admitted.

Judai admitted that it hasn’t been easy to lose weight, even with all the steps she has been taking. “Honestly, ang fear ko lang naman is makita yung mga fats ko eh. Pero parang okay na lang din. May plano naman talaga ako magpapayat. Nagkataon lang talaga na mahirap, mahirap talaga. Siguro naman alam ng lahat yun, lalo na sa mga bagong panganak. Mahirap maka-recover at makabalik sa dati mong katawan. But I’m just really enjoying my time. Talagang nag-e-enjoy lang ako at masaya ako na binibigyan nila ako ng pagkakataon na mag-relax lang, kung kelan ko gusto bumalik, okay lang,” she explained.

Judai said her decision to wait before accepting any movie offers was more of a personal decision than a professional one. “It’s just me. I just really want to feel good. I just want to feel comfortable with myself and confident as well. Yung I want to dress up the way I used to be. Kasi parang ngayon very limited yung mga clothes na susuotin ko. Marami pang tinatago tapos palagi akong naka-pants, pag hindi ka naka-pants, naka-dress. Eh since malaki laki pa ang tiyan ko, akala nila buntis pa rin ako so medyo nakaka-hurt ng slight yung ganun. Pero I try to take it slow and deadma, ganun eh. At least may lumabas na bata sa akin, yung ganun na lang. Kung mataba ako at mataba rin yung nagsabi sa akin na mataba ako, ang tanong ko na lang, nabuntis ka na ba? Para sabihin mong mataba ako,” she shared.

Judai said that if ever she was to do a movie this year, she plans to really study the project first before saying yes to it. “Yung pagbabalik sa pag-arte, maybe I’ll do one film this year. Maybe but I’m not yet sure. Pag-aaralan ko muna mabuti yung mga proyekto na puwedeng gawin. Kasi siyempre gusto ko ‘pag gumawa ako n
