Kris Aquino’s attempt at water physiotherapy led to a discussion of her weight loss, given that she appears slimmer in a swimsuit in her pictures. 

Aquino revealed on Instagram on Tuesday, June 25, that she tried to do water physiotherapy after mentioning in a previous post that she experienced a severe migraine the day before.


However, as she was still building up her balance and resistance, she ended up going to a deeper end of the pool, resulting in her sons Josh and Bimby assisting her to their jetted and heated whirlpool.

we TRIED. i think that’s the most important thing… but i stressed my Ate who thought we’d get struck by lightning (uh, with me that’s more than likely⛈⚡️)… yes in our pool’s shallowest area i was in danger of drowning. so bimb said until my balance & resistance improve we were better off in the whirlpool. then he called kuya to help him hoist me to our smaller pool w/ seating. bimb gave me a physics lesson about “torque” & my having no resistance that’s why when i spun, i was getting swept to the deeper area (nakalimutan ko na ‘to; he’s in 4th quarter grade 6, i think this was from my late high school 💬📚unless i was reading too many Sweet Valley High, Danielle Steel, and Sidney Sheldon books?) in case you’re curious, our pools are heated using LPG, that’s the benefit of having been a Petron Gasul endorser for many years, we learned to manage our energy consumption because we use Gasul to cook, heat our pools, and for our clothes’ dryers. For fuel needs, we take full advantage of the @snr_official membership discount card when fueling up our vehicles in UniOil. namana ko sa mom ko being a conscientious consumer & i have many more practical tips i can share with all of you. please remind me to write a blog about this. in the meantime, enjoy viewing our family bonding where the 2 sons are obviously the guardians of their very delicate (better term than LAMPA😇) mama. GOOD NIGHT. 😍🥰😘💛

One fan (@claireclaraceline) expressed admiration for her body and skin. “I rarely see you in those skin-tight ensemble po and I must say that a good skin care routine really pays off.”

The TV host replied, “The unfortunate truth is I look good in videos and pictures because of my weight loss. In real life I don’t look that great.”

She said that at her height of 161.3 cm (around 5’3’”), her ideal weight on camera would be 120 pounds. However, she weighs between 113 and 116 pounds now and went as low as 108 pounds.


“If you’re observant, wala kaming (we do not have) pics showing my rear because I have zero booty,” she said. “I’m grateful numipis ang thighs and maliit ang arms (my thighs and arms are slimmer).”

She credited her clear skin to hypoallergenic products and drinking warm water throughout the day.

Aquino has been open about her experience with autoimmune issues, allergies to medicine and seeking medical help in Singapore. She said in a June 7 Facebook note that until now, there is no “definitive diagnosis” of her conditions.

She shared that she would be bedridden from fatigue or nausea and that she struggles with food consumption and proper sleep.

Aquino announced in the note she was “closing certain doors and windows into our lives” as she wanted to heal for her two children.  /ra
