Ben&Ben's Paolo Guico shared an update about his fitness journey on social media on Wednesday, March 9.

On his Instagram page, Paolo shared, "These pictures represent years of hard work and sacrifice. Today, I just wanted to celebrate this growth with all of you. Thanks for being there to cheer me on at my lowest moments. I hit my goal weight this week, finally." 

Paolo also penned an inspiring message for his followers as he reflected on his journey. 


"If you are on a path of growth, do it out of love for yourself and do it for the people you love. Never do it just to please others, because it will never be enough. You are enough," he said.

He added, "You have so much to offer to the world. I know you're working hard. You got this. You're not alone. I'm rooting for you. I'm with you."

In the photo he posted, Paolo also confidently showed his stretchmarks and a snapshot of his previous figure. 

He remarked, "In this picture, I also celebrate my stretch marks. Cause they're awesome. I also celebrate my past self, because he's awesome too." 

Followers of the Ben&Ben singer expressed their gratitude to him for inspiring them. 

"So proud of you kuya Pao. You inspire me. Actually I just started yesterday," one netizen said. 

"Thank you so much Pao for always encouraging us, in all ways! We're rooting for you also. #BraveStrongPao!!" another fan commented. 

In another post, Paolo also shared how running played a major role in his weight loss journey.

"A big part of that has been running, on these roads (in the videos). I was never really a runner. I started from not being able to run straight for 2 minutes, to conquering 21 km. I want to unapologetically celebrate this moment because it took literal blood, sweat, and tears to get to this point. I remember the countless struggles getting out of bed, being out of breath, and the times when I just mentally gave up. I had painful bouts with low self-esteem and loss of motivation. But I also remember the mini-victories, and the small breakthroughs, which are important to celebrate and acknowledge too," he wrote.

He continued that running made him strong not only physically but also in other aspects as well. 

"I can say that through the past 2 years, I have grown so much not just physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. A big part of that has been this running journey. It allowed me to develop focus and grit, but also to meditate and reflect. Even some great musical ideas arrived upon me while running. This has been one of the toughest battles of my life. But God granted me an extra push to persevere, one day at a time. I realized that maybe he gave me this capacity to endure and struggle, so that I may inspire at least one person out there," he stated.
