From being a size XXL to almost large, actress Melissa Ricks shared what has been helping her lose weight and gain back confidence. 

In an Instagram post on Saturday, March 7, Melissa expressed self-love and opened up about her fitness journey.

"Sometimes we forget to appreciate how far we have come.. I always feel that my progress is slow, but you know what, slowly but surely. Sometimes I fall off track but I try again. Self love is tricky sometimes, its struggle, its a process, its a journey," she wrote.


Sharing a photo of a 'before and after' photo, she added, "I'm still far from my goal but I feel great. From XXL to XL to almost Large. Laban mga momshie, although my baby pouch is so difficult to loose because of excess skin."
