"Darna" actress Angel Locsin is making strides in her fitness journey.
Angel took to Instagram to share an update where her slimmer physique was perfectly accentuated.
After being body-shamed on social media in the past, Angel urged her fans to "love every inch" of themselves.
"Remember to love every inch of you,” she wrote in the caption.
Several fellow celebrities, including Marian Rivera, Angelica Panganiban, Anne Curtis, and Isabelle Daza congratulated her on her milestone.
Angel announced in June on Instagram that she had begun an 800-calorie diet, as suggested by a nutritionist.
Angel’s fitness journey, however, has not been easy. She sustained a spine injury in 2015, which prevented her from training and doing stunts for "Darna". Four years later, she opened up about how her condition has kept her from doing strenuous physical activities in an interview with Boy Abunda.
In November 2020, Angel was subject to body-shaming in a DepEd module that referred to her as “obese.” In early 2021, photos showing her curvier physique made rounds on social media. Seemingly unfazed by the negative comments on her body, she did not shy away from public appearances.
