- Mariel Rodriguez Padilla has been open about her weight gain all throughout her pregnancy
- She reached a point where she would hardly post her picture on IG because of her weight
- Now, the proud mother declares fat is not forever because she has already lost 40 pounds
Mariel Padilla's journey to motherhood was not an easy one, and even after she gave birth to her little angel, she still had pregnancy weight to deal with.
The usually active in social media mom hardly posted photos because of her weight.
She even described herself as the "fat, extra large, huge, gigantic" mom and unbelievably only put out less than 30 photos in a single year. Yes, she simply was somehow conscious of the weight she gained.
The wife of Robin Padilla even admitted, "I barely posted photos because I really didn’t want people to see how big I got."
In fact, KAMI learned that Mariel had some selfies with her daughter which she chose not to post on socmed because of fear of being body-shamed.
"Here are some of the selfies we took but I couldn’t post because I didn’t want to be cyber bullied for being super fat!
"But look at us we were so happy (we still are hehe)."
In fact, Mariel admitted that she really shied away from public appearances.
"I dreaded going to events or parties. I only really 'came out' for @severianoelliott's 1st birthday. That was my fat debut hehe.
"When I would be invited to parties I would decline, I’d tell them I’m too fat to be seen (you know that ate @iloveruffag hehe).
"When my management @asianartistsagency would call me for work, I would tell them 'please ask if it is okay that I am fat because they might expect the old mariel and she is not here at the moment.'"
Aside from this, Mariel also said that since she had little milk, she ate her way through it so as to provide her baby with lots of milk.
In PEP it was reported that the actress was at her heaviest at 178 pounds when Isabella was about 1-year-old.
"I was 178 lbs!!! Heavier than my super fit husband.
"Even my fingers were fat... my rings could not fit me.
"I only had a few clothes to wear (it used to be a big deal to me because I did not like repeating clothes... super shallow of me I know)."
"But I knew FAT IS NOT FOREVER! I was not going to let that be the new me."
As of this writing, the 33-year-old actress has lost 40 pounds and is bent on losing more.
