Isabelle Daza is one hot momma who has a beautiful, inspiring story to tell about her fitness journey. In her recent interview on Tonight with Boy Abunda. Isabelle unraveled the rewards of being fit—ultimately having more confidence and self-love.
After regaining her fit body after pregnancy, Isabelle acceded to growing clamor on sharing her fitness journey.
Speaking her mind, Belle says “Social media has this deceiving side where everyone thinks that it’s all perfect and they think that there’s not a lot of work that goes into that.”
Aside from that, Belle also shared the reasons why she was determined to have a fit body. She was diagnosed with gestational diabetes, yet the actress boldly admitted that being insecure of her figure is a main reason.
“I’m not gonna sugarcoat it, it’s definitely weight. It was my insecurity, it’s something that I had a problem and it was my truth. I can’t lie about it,” Belle says.
She recounted shaming her own body as a teenager and it went on even when she became a mom.
“I struggled with body shaming myself and I struggled to love myself… and I had to see a therapist for that. She told me, “You have to know that you’re enough for your son to know that he’s enough…People talk about body love, but it’s very difficult to get there. I had to look in the mirror every single day and tell myself I am enough. It was mental fitness that I was also practicing. Like physical fitness, you have to work out every day to be fit. You have to train the brain to think that way. To be fit, you have to affirm yourself and that’s really the turning point of my story.”
Apart from inspiring us about her fitness journey, Belle also shared a few things in her interview about joining beauty pageants, being a mother and wife and how this changed her so far. She also revealed how she’s empowering her house helpers to succeed in life and her attitude of being very vocal.
