Regine Velasquez is supportive of Sharon Cuneta’s weight loss journey: ‘She is an inspiration to a lot of people!’

After not seeing each other for two years because of the pandemic, Regine Velasquez admitted she cannot wait to be reunited and perform on stage again with her Iconic concert co-performer Sharon Cuneta starting next month. After their two-day concert in Manila, the two singers are slated to take Iconic on a U.S tour later this year.

“I can’t wait. I missed the palakpakan, the hiyawan, the energy that they give us back. I’m so excited for that. Plus, I get to share the stage again with ate Sharon,” Regine said during the Iconic concert presscon held at Resorts World Manila.

With Sharon revealing she has lost a total of 85 pounds already in a span of six years, Regine applauded her close friend’s achievement despite the lengthy duration that it took.

“I’m so proud of her. It’s really about discipline and lifestyle. What I learned is that really dieting, yung trying to deprive yourself of carbs, it will really make you gain pounds back even more. The rebound is worse so now, what I’m trying to do is enjoy food. Because food is there to enjoy. At saka nakaka-happy siya. It’s just about discipline and lifestyle. it’s also taking care of yourself. You need to eh. I’m not into body shaming,” she explained.

The singer long known as Asia’s Songbird also talked about being inspired by Sharon’s weight loss journey.

“She is an inspiration to a lot of people. Even with me. Kasi it’s not just about the aesthetics eh. It’s about taking care of yourself.

“As you get older, everything changes. It’s harder for our bodies to recover when your body is working hard. It’s working hard constantly.

“It’s harder for it to recover so losing weight is not just really dahil gusto mo lang magpa-cute. It’s not just about that. It’s about taking care of yourself,” she added. 

Watch Regine Velasquez and Sharon Cuneta perform live at the Iconic concert happening on June 17 and 18 at the Marriott Grand Ballroom at Resorts World Manila in Pasay City. Tickets available at all TicketWorld and SM Tickets outlets.
