She said, “I decided to lose weight based on the experience of a close friend. For me, weight loss is not about being skinny but living and feeling healthy. I have been 15kg overweight for the last 15 years and it was time to get rid of it. People say my fitness regimen is tasking but I say otherwise. BIMBO-005I am in the gym for two hours daily from Monday to Friday. I watch what I eat and I am still working on my body.”
She is not particular about any size or beauty. According to the 42-year-old actress, she just wants to be healthy.
“I don’t have a target size. All I want is to have a certain feeling of lightness. I am not looking to be a size zero because I can’t be a size zero. People say I’m doing it so I can be beautiful but it is not about being skinny or being fat. Being skinny doesn’t make you look better and if you are not careful, you will look ugly and unhealthy.”
