There’s more to Camille Prats-Yambao’s body transformation than meets the eye.
Citing her weight loss, the Kapuso actor and host said that it’s really self-consciousness and the aim to be healthy for her three growing toddlers that drove her to achieve her fitness goals.
“We want to give our all to them and not also feel tired whenever we do it. We need to improve our body from the inside and, of course, with the help of supplements that can keep you healthy and energetic while you’re at it,” Yambao said at a recent virtual meeting with Puritan Pride.
Her leaner physique had drawn mixed reactions and unsolicited comments from netizens.
“They would say that I am too thin or I look sick. Some people think it was an overnight thing, that it just happened to me in a snap. But this was a year in progress,” she said.
Yambao started working out in June 2020. Making it a habit was not easy, she recalled. Many times she struggled with herself, too.
She said, “It came to a point that I just showed up. Commitment was the key to the changes that happened to me.”
Together with her husband, Yambao devoted 30 to 45 minutes each day to working out. She said, “Even if you don’t feel like it, if you feel lazy or if you’re just not in the mood. You can come up with any excuse but if it’s important to you, you will make time for it.”
It is the same thing with being a mom, Yambao said.
“Find the right balance for yourself and for your family. You can’t separate being a mom and try to do everything that you always do at home. Do things slowly. Try to pace things. Don’t overwhelm yourself with so much stuff to do. If you can’t do it, it’s fine. You can always do it tomorrow.”
Seeing other women inspired by her fitness journey encourages Yambao to finish what she started.
