Iza Calzado on Body-Image Issues, “Imperfections. I Have So Many of Them”

Iza Calzado didn’t welcome 2018 with a “new year, new me” resolution instead, she’s encouraging everyone about self-love and body positivity.

On New Year’s Eve, the Kapamilya actress posted a photo of herself in a two-piece bikini during her beach vacation in Phuket, Thailand.

It was a blunt snapshot of her sitting on a blanket.

The 35-year-old star wrote on Instagram;

“Imperfections. I have so many of them. Stretch marks, cellulites, 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. In 2018 I will be more open and authentic about my journey as I’ve started to embrace myself more thanks to following body positive accounts and being inspired by them plus a supportive group of people around me especially my fiancé, Ben and because of the wisdom and maturity that comes with age. 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.
