I always like singing. Growing up, I used to lock myself in my room and just jam to the songs of Bee Gees, The Platters, and Sue Thomson. I sang to the top of my lungs. I didn’t care. Those songs were music to my ears.
But I stopped singing when one day, when I was 10 or 11, while singing a Bee Gees song, my father yelled “Hey Anna! Are you reciting a poem or what?”
Wow! I bet my dad was being playful. But that did not turn out right. It literally took the confidence out of me. I stopped singing. I thought, “Oh well. I obviously can’t carry a tune. If my dad thinks I can’t sing, I’d better stop singing.”
The truth is I didn’t stop singing. You bet, you can’t take away singing from someone who loves it. But I never dared sing alone in public. I kept my singing in my room or in the bathroom.
I joined the choir only because it helped me with my academics in high school. But I always had this lingering thought that I cannot carry a tune. So when I’m with the choir, I try to lower my voice so that mine would just blend and wouldn’t even matter.
I also wouldn’t sing in karaoke sessions. It is kind of a letdown because, karaoke hours are a regular past time here in the Philippines. I can sing a line or two, but heck, I would not dare sing a complete song. If I would, I would have nightmares of it. I just didn’t have the confidence.
My confidence level diminished further when I started to grow bigger and bigger. I thought I wouldn’t stop ballooning.
I became sickly. My woman cycle lost its rhythm. I had regular bouts of nightly heartburn and daily allergic rhinitis attacks. I felt physically drained.
The bullies got through me. And the ugly names they gave me during those years of being obese stuck in my head. I couldn’t shake those names off. I thought I was truly the person those bullies called me. And despite me telling I am okay and that I am more than the shell of the body which encased who I truly was, I felt downright rejected. And I felt horrible! Ouch! It hurts.
This weekend, I found myself at the end of the spectrum. I looked at myself in the mirror and I saw a glimpse of confidence I did not see before.
This is me now, hanging out with my little sis, one fine Saturday night
Hey. I can no longer see the 180 lbs obese woman those bullies called a sea cow. I can no longer see that obese woman the bullies called pig. I can no longer see that obese woman those bullies called whale.
I am now looking at a happy and confident woman who successfully went from 180 lbs to 127 lbs within months. I am now looking at a healthy me without my obesity related sickness. And this I did by simply tapping on the Asian diet secret that was just right there in front of me all along!
This weekend, I did not just sing. I even recorded the songs on video. Talk about confidence level. Lol.
“Did I do this really, or what?”
It was a fun weekend. I enjoyed driving around the metro with our youngest sibling. And I enjoyed singing with her. I didn’t care if I could not carry a tune. All I cared about is I am happy singing and I’m happy singing because I love singing. After all, I am not competing against Taylor Swift, right?
This Asian diet secret which I conveniently ignored, turned out to be the greatest gift I embraced for myself. Without starving myself. Without taking diet pills. Without taking diet drinks. Without subjecting myself to diet gimmickry.
I shed off more than 52 lbs from my body. My friends could not even recognize me from the old me. And they too are happy about my transformation that they made me their own healthy weight loss inspiration.
