Woman Shares Impressive Journey to Losing 20kg in 4 Months

Most of those who tried to lose weight will tell you that doing so is such a difficult thing that they eventually quit trying and decided to simply accept that they would never become as slim as they wished to be!

But one young lady proved that with determination and the right tools, you can achieve anything you wanted, even losing 20kg of extra weight! Whoa. How did she do it?

Pamela Cruz shared her impressive weight-loss journey on Facebook last December 31, narrating how she lost a whopping 20kg of weight in just 4 months. According to the post, a lot of people thought she underwent liposuction because she lost so much weight so quickly.

When she started trying to lose weight, she did it just like everyone else – she went on a diet. She only ate steamed vegetables for 2 weeks. Of course, that would have helped her lose a lot of weight quickly but she became constipated.

After undergoing a medical checkup, she was told that she needed more fiber in her digestive system. So, she went back to eating regular food but changed from white to black rice. She even ate the same viand as before, including canned goods that are supposed to be bad for those who are trying to go on diet.

Unsuccessful with her dieting, she turned to doing cardio exercises. A bit embarrassed to go to the gym as she was overweight, she decided to do the exercises at home. She used the treadmill for 30-60 min daily, for 1 month straight!

After that, though, she had to stop for 2 months as she had to undergo an operation.

By October, finally deciding to be more serious with her weight-loss journey, she enrolled in the gym. It was tiresome and her coaches were sometimes too strict on her but thanks to this, she was able to finally lose her excess weight and achieve the body she wanted!

FYI, hindi po ako nag diet pills, diet shake, protein shake or kung ano man klase ng pampapayat hindi po talaga ako gumamit. Kasi maniwala kayo sa hindi mas nakakataba po yun once tinigil nyo,” she shared.

From 193lbs (87.5kg), Pamela is down to 149lbs (67.6kg)!

In just 4 months, she was able to lose 44lbs (20kg). Her impressive weight-loss journey has inspired a lot of people to also start a membership at the nearest gym!

Dad Offers Php10k Reward for Weight Loss

Everyone knows how hard it is to lose weight. That’s why many people put “weight loss” as part of their long list of New Year’s resolutions but do this every year because they just can’t lose weight.

Year after year, people try to lose weight but end up gaining more as they just can’t let go of the delicious high-calorie food they love to it. Plus, doing exercises can be so tiresome. But many would say that you can overcome all that with proper motivation. And what’s a better motivation for a young girl than money, huh?

A lot of netizens are unsure whether the young girl can reach the target weight in such a short amount of time without starving herself, but many are also cheering her on!

Sick Kid, Mom Ride MRT to Seek Help After Hospitals Kept on Turning Them Away

A sick kid and his mom took a ride on an MRT to seek help after hospitals kept turning them away. Someone taking a ride on the same train shared their story in hopes that someone could help them because the kid really looks so pitiful.

Hospitals Keep Turning Sick Kid Away

It is not easy being sick because you don’t really know whether you might get well or not. But what is really sad is that there are times when the sick person is not even provided with treatment just because the family can’t afford to pay the hospital at all!

Manilyn Palad was on her daily commute when she noticed a mother cradling an obviously sick and weak kid on the MRT. She and the other passengers took pity on the kid and asked his mom what’s happening.

So, the mom showed them her son’s body, saying that he’s been having trouble eating and that some of his internal parts from the digestive system are out of his body. The two had come all the way from Parañaque, walking in some areas as they tried to find a hospital to accept the kid but they kept on getting rejected because they did not have money.

According to Manilyn, the two were headed to the Pasig City General Hospital in hopes that the boy will receive treatment there.

Many netizens took pity on the kid and his mother. Donations and any help you wish to provide should be coursed through this number: 09262872534 owned by Rosemarie, the kid’s mother.

Some netizens slammed Manilyn for not helping out, saying that she’s just doing this for likes. However, others defended her and pointed out that Manilyn probably didn’t have the means to help the two financially but her post would have helped them reach more people who might actually be able to help.

Hospital Down Payment Law in the Philippines

Under Republic Act No. 10932, also known as the Anti-Hospital Deposit Law, it is unlawful for any hospital or medical clinic to require or demand deposit or any other form of advance payment before providing basic emergency care or medical treatment. The same thing also applies for confinement.

Under the law, “any official, medical practitioner or employee of the hospital or medical clinic who violates the provisions of this Act shall be punished by imprisonment of not less than six (6) months and one (1) day but not more than two (2) years and four (4) months, or a fine of not less than Php100,000.00 but not more than Php300,000.00 or both.”

What’s sad, however, is that most hospitals still require down payment and most patients don’t really have a choice but to comply.

A woman looks down on breastfeeding moms and says that they are can’t afford to buy ‘real’ milk. This earned her netizens’ anger as they pointed out that breastmilk is even called liquid gold and is the most nutritious milk a baby could ever have!

Woman Mistakenly Thinks Breastmilk is for Poor People

In a post that has gone viral on Facebook, an unnamed woman who appears to have ‘Limbak’ as family name tries to lecture another woman for breastfeeding her child.

Writing in the Cebuano language, this Limbak woman slammed someone she calls “Ma’am” for ‘only breastfeeding’ her baby. She adds that she takes pity on the woman for not being able to afford ‘real’ milk. She said that she feels sad that the baby can’t experience drinking milk, insinuating that breastmilk is not real milk.

This woman also angrily told off the “Ma’am” for choosing to give birth to a child when she can’t even afford to provide the baby with real milk. She further claims that breastmilk can cause health problems like stomachache. Moreover, she thinks that breastmilk does not taste good.

The woman ends her tirade with a deprecating note to breastfeeding moms, saying that she really takes pity on babies who are only breastfed because their moms can’t afford to buy milk.

Benefits of Breastmilk

Although the woman belittles breastmilk and thinks that it is only for poor people who can’t afford to buy real milk, the reality is that breastmilk has a perfect formula that even the most expensive milks can’t copy.

Providing the ideal nutrition for infants, it is made of a mix of vitamins, protein, and fat. Scientists have also discovered that the actual composition of the breastmilk produced by the mom changes, depending on the baby’s needs.

Breast milk even contains antibodies that help the baby fight off viruses and bacteria.
