According to Ria, she used to be bullied in school because of her weight.
Although she was a varsity softball player, it didn't hinder bullying.
She tried to lose weight several times but only to regain the pounds again.
It was only when she entered showbiz that she took weight loss seriously.
She became stricter with her diet and worked out three times a day.
Her goal is to go down to 118 pounds by September of this year as she plans to join the Binibining Pilipinas beauty pageant.
