Skinny People Have Fitness Goals Too

Some people struggle to lose weight. Yung iba hihigop lang ng hangin tumataba na. Lucky for me, I dodged that bullet.

But I'm not really sure if I should be happy about that.

You see, I have been skinny my entire life. While I can devour a whole box of pizza daily without having to buy a new pair of pants, getting wired with genes that burns more calories quickly isn't always a good thing. You can get hated for that. Haha. *wink*

I stand 5'3" and back then hitting 100 lbs no matter how much food I shove down my throat is a struggle.  Whoever said that 'payat' and 'matakaw' can't be used together in one sentence has definitely not seen me. But I got it all wrong. I just realized I am thin because I was making the wrong food choices.

31 years of my entire matakaw life, I never thought that I would actually go on a diet. Oo, si Sarah nagdi-diet na. Akalain mo yun?! And by diet, I mean high protein, less fat diet. I have ditched junk food (although I still have occasional cheat days), started drinking milk (ugh), and ate small frequent healthy meals. And that healthy diet combined with Muay Thai drills that involve muscle strengthening, body conditioning and hardening, is turning this skinny body into a lean and mean fighting machine. Whoever wants to mess up with me should be afraid, be very afraid. xD

At 106 lbs (from 98lbs 2 months ago), I am close to hitting my ideal BMI and that has not even involved binge-eating on burgers like I did before.  I have never felt better. And gaining weight, after all, is not that hard. When I started off, all I wanted was to bulk up. But now, my goals have changed, I want to be fit and strong.

The biggest challenge I hold today is the determination to push myself to the limits as it entails a lot of patience, discipline, and perseverance. And it goes the same with those who struggle to lose weight.

So am I up for the challenge?


I've been giving myself different challenges lately. Play 'Sweet Child O Mine' on a string instrument? Did it. Fitness challenge? Doing it. And this time, learn a new programming language? Watch me whip, watch me nail it.
