my “then and now”

Jinoe , the Manokan Express and administrator of is one among my favorite runner-bloggers.  He is an inspiration, too.   When he posted his “before and after” pictures, i was encouraged to look back and assess my own fitness development.  As the saying goes, imitation is the best compliment, so let me compliment Jinoe by posting these pictures that will confirm the transformation of an ugly and fat mother hen to a lovely and fit mother swan, or may i call my “then and now”.

I hope i can also inspire others to set their feet on the road and start thinking of getting fit .  Running is an inexpensive activity yet very fulfilling.

  1. Uy… transformed ka na rin. 😀
    Actually, I also got the idea to post my pics after foreignrunner posted his own transformation.

  2. Hi tita, ok ang inyong hobby nakakasexy, hehehe tuloy niyo lang po yan:D Gogogo


  3. Sayang, wala akong picture nong overweight pa ako para makagawa din ng ganito!

    I’m sure you’ll inspire a lot of heavyweight women out there, Anna. Sexing-sexy ka na ngayon. Size S! (hanggang ngayon, size L pa rin ako noh?)

    See you Monday. Super excited na ako.

  4. oh! another success story ha. hi anna. i want to tell you again that you dont look your age. 😉 incidentally, i have my little “success story” too which was the subject of my blog’s “about” page. you can check this if you want to see what i am talking about – regards and happy running!

  5. Thanks, Jinoe.

    let’s give credit to foreignrunner for his idea but syempre we have to congratulate ourselves for the determination to shed those fats…hurray!

    Hi Ross,

    thanks ha…aside from feeling sexy (walang kokontra) executive check-up results are normal… do i need to say more? hehehe

    Hi Nora,

    hirap kasi pag heavyweight ayaw na nating pa picture, in my case dumating na ko sa point na nagtatago na ako sa camera… but now, i’m so happy i can join photo ops…. tapos i was able to change na rin my outfits from XL to S, medyo gastos nga lang…hahaha

    thanks ha…..see you monday!

    Hi Vims,

    thank you! thank you! sabi nga sa real age i’m 41.5 yo instead of my calendar age of 45.3 yo, hahaha

    btw, i have seen your post, congrats..what a remarkable achievement! it’s really nice to reach the body weight and physical condition we always dreamed of so lets continue to run as it is our key to the most fulfilling years life has in store for us.

    i hope to see you soon. happy running.

  6. Hey, you look pretty good for a Mom of 3 grown-up kids 🙂 You really should go back to Palawan and have that family pic shot again. Before (in short and shirts) and after (in swim wear) pic.
