Iza Calzado has been in show business for 15 years, and she knows a thing or two about being criticized for her looks and weight. So, for 2018, Iza is calling for Filipinos to be more body positive.
In an ~*inspiring*~ NYE Instagram post, the actress got real about her insecurities: "I have so many of them. Stretch marks, cellulite, loose skin, folds, love handles, scars and so many things I can be insecure about. I've been on the road to self-love for such a long time it seems like I've been battling this my whole life. It hasn't helped that I've been in the public eye for 15 years and have always felt dishonest with my seemingly perfect images that make it to print."
So for the new year, she said, she "will be more open and authentic about my journey as I've started to embrace myself more."
She continued, "I hope for a REVOLUTION on the way we see ourselves and other people. Love, respect, kindness, and compassion are the key ingredients to this and I pray for more enlightenment and acceptance for every BODY."
