On vacation in Coron, Palawan, Bea Alonzo shared this beautiful photo of her embracing her body, “flaws and all.” She said, “I have always been the type who would choose not to post photos of myself in swimsuits, but since I declared this year as the year for change, I thought that maybe I should change the way I view myself.”
“I want to forget about how I hated myself for being ‘fat’ in other people’s eyes and just remember the things that I love about my body. It’s the only body that I am blessed with and I am thankful for my health because I get to do the things that make me happy.”
She shared the photo in the hopes that it could inspire other women to celebrate body love, too. “Let’s all work hard to better ourselves for us and not just so others could accept us.”
Messages of support came pouring in from her celeb friends. Liza Soberano called her “beautiful,” while Anne Curtis said she looked “amazing.” Iza Calzado wrote, “You deserve the best kind of love and acceptance, the one that comes from yourself. You are so much more than just beautiful, you are worthy.”
Her boyfriend, Gerald Anderson, kept it simple and commented with three heart eyes emojis.
