Sharon Cuneta recounted how she was able to overcome a heart problem in the course of her now six-year weight loss journey.

Cuneta talked about her experience of losing weight and admitted that she regrets not starting earlier, during her clinic visit to Dr. Aivee Teo, as seen on the celebrity doctor’s YouTube channel last Sunday, March 20.


“It’s really discipline, you really have to do it. Enjoy yourself cause you only live once but also remember that life is short,” Cuneta said. “I regret that throughout my 40s I was fat. I lost a decade and if only I could take that decade back I would do so much more but better late than never.”

“While you’re young and even if you’re older, it’s never too late to get healthy. I did it basically for my health,” she stated.


The Megastar also gave an update on her health condition, disclosing that she had gone through a heart problem which was one of the reasons why she had to go slow on her diet.

“I’m not sick of anything — even my heart problem before. My resting heart rate, ‘yung tulog (when I’m asleep), my cardiologist was so concerned. We had to talk to her and we really had to make a plan,” she recalled. “We had to meet with the cardiologist because ‘pag tulog ako, ‘yung heart rate ko, para akong nagdya-jogging, ang taas, pero wala na ngayon (when I’m asleep, my heart rate is as high as when I’m jogging but it’s not like that anymore).”

Cuneta then encouraged fans who are in the same situation as her to not lose hope and continue with their weight loss journey, noting how it’s a form of “self-love.”

“If kunwari (for example), you’re older, you can do it by yourselves because it’s self-love, it’s self-care. You want to be healthy. Just be careful with the food,” she added.

Cuneta, who already lost 85 pounds, started dieting on and off since January 2016. She told fans recently that she had gone back to her diet, adding that she appears bigger than her actual size in television. JB
