Janella Salvador recalls weight loss journey, reveals getting liposuction

Janella Salvador recently opened up about her weight loss struggles on her Instagram last Sunday, September 26.

The post consisted of photos of herself and baby Jude, her first child with actor Markus Paterson.

She began her post by saying how after giving birth, she made a promise to herself to always do self-care.

Easier said than done

“When I was pregnant with Jude, I promised myself that I would never forget self-care. I said I would take the time to do things that I love. Happy mum, happy family, right?”

However, the actress revealed how she felt she lost her “vanity” ever since giving birth to Jude.

In addition, she said how she did not feel like herself in the physical sense.

“[I]n those first few months, I physically did not feel like myself. I hid behind big coats, robes and loose clothing. The lack of sleep made me overeat so I was 40 POUNDS heavier than my ideal weight. I did not like what I saw in the mirror but paid no attention to that,”

Despite having a mindset that gaining weight is normal after giving birth, Janella said she wanted to be healthy again.

“[T]here comes a time where you want to be healthy and regain your strength. My goal has always been to be strong enough to take care of the household so I did not want to resort to unhealthy crash diets. Working in a physical industry that relies so much on looks didn’t help with the pressure either. I knew that eventually, I needed to start working again,”

Getting liposuction

Then, Janella revealed how it was celebrity doctor Vicki Belo who suggested she had liposuction.

Initially, the Kapamilya star felt hesitant in doing the procedure. However, Belo gave her tons of talks and assurance.

“I initially said no. I was afraid. But after many talks and getting assurance from her, I gave in. Best decision ever. I can’t thank her and [Dr. Hayden Kho] enough for helping me jumpstart my journey back to sexy and for giving me back my confidence,”

In addition, Janella said she finally sees the woman she always wanted to see in her reflection

“I am finally starting to see the woman I want to see in the mirror once again. I also want to give myself a pat on the back for taking [the] initiative to exercise as well,”

Enjoying the journey

To conclude her post, she addressed her fellow mothers to enjoy motherhood and not give in to pressure.

“To all the mamas out there, enjoy every part of your journey and don’t pressure yourself. At the end of the day, what matters most is the health and happiness of your baby. But don’t forget to take steps towards your own happiness,”

Janella and Markus confirmed their relationship last September 2020.

The couple did not reveal how they were parents to Baby Jude, who was born last October 2020, until January 2021.

You are an inspirational mama, Janella!
