The Biggest Loser Fab Five share what their greatest fears are after leaving the show


092511-bl_main.jpgAs the country waits to see the impressive and dramatic changes to their appearance, the Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition’s five remaining finalists, known as the “Fab Five,” share that they are adhering to their commitment in doing daily workouts despite leaving the camp a few weeks back. The country’s biggest reality TV show culminates with a final weigh-in which will determine who among Angela, Art, Hazel, Larry, and Raffy will lose the highest weight percentage and be declared the very first Pinoy Biggest Loser on October 8 at the Ynares Stadium.

During their September 21 press conference, the Fab Five admitted to the press that they almost all had the same fear now that they have gone back to their homes. 36-year-old bar owner Art echoed the sentiments of the majority with his thoughts. ”The biggest thing na kinakatakutan ko was that my weight would come back. Pero nung natanggap ako sa show, sinabi ko sa sarili ko, I will not look at this as a goal. I will look at this as a lifestyle. So ngayon, paglabas ko, alam ko hindi kaya ng lifestyle ko yung four to five hours na gym time. So anong pinaka-naturo nila coach Chinggay (Andrada) and coach Jim (Saret) na ina-apply ko? Now I probably workout about an hour to an hour and a half. So kaya ko na baguhin yung lifestyle ko,” he explained.

22-year-old Hazel admitted she is now more in control of her food intake. “Nung umpisa pa lang ng show, first talaga na pumasok sa isip ko at that time is what if kung tapos na yung show, baka bumalik ako sa dati? Pero habang tumatagal kami sa camp, parang mas nagiging confident kami harapin kung ano yung buhay outside kasi we were taught na maging disiplinado. Kasi yun naman talaga yung naging problema namin, aminado naman kaming lahat na kulang talaga kami sa discipline kaya lumaki kami ng ganun kalaki. So confident kami ngayon na ma-instill sa amin ang discipline na yun,” she shared.

Hazel’s new boyfriend, Raffy on the other hand, admitted he’s never been this happy. “Like, them yung fear ko is ganun din kasi never pa ako naging ganito ka-happy. Since bata pa ako mataba na ako and everything right now for me, first time. First time ko makabili-bili ng mga damit. First time ko makapunta sa big mall at bibili ng mga large or extra large. Dati kasi four X large. May feeling na sobrang happy ako and ayoko na bumalik kasi bata pa ako ang dami ko ng sakit eh. Ngayon kakatanggal lang ang pangit naman kung ibabalik ko pa,” he said.

After what could arguably be the most visible weight loss among the group, former policeman Larry said more than his appetite, it was his mindset he needed to control. “Ang biggest fear ko is bumalik kami sa dati at tumaba, kasi mawawala naman yung konsensya ko sa sarili ko. Madali ako ma-te-tempt sa mga bagay bagay pag nasa labas na. Kaya talagang wini-workout ko yung sarili ko, panalangin sa Panginoon na sana huwag na bumalik, ganun, iwas sa mga bisyo, ganun,” he said.

26-year-old Angela, who joined the camp so she could lose weight and have a child with her husband, said she could use a constant reminder to keep herself in check. “I think everyone naman shares the same sentiments na if ever babalik yung katabaan namin, pero since sobrang intense yung workouts at training namin sa camp, I think makakatulong kung ibibigay na lang sa amin  yung mga standees namin from the start of the show para ipaalala sa amin na puwede pa kami bumalik diyan. So yun,” she said.
