Singer Gab Valenciano struggled to have a healthy and fit body after battling anxiety and mental health problems. He has finally emerged victorious with a healthier physique.
Valenciano spoke up about his struggles and showed before-and-after photos of his physical condition from July to this month in his Instagram page, Sept. 23. His photo from July shows him very thin while his present photo shows him fit and toned.
“Physical and mental health is the true definition of wealth,” he said. “Earlier this year, I wasn’t in a good place, battled anxiety and lost 20 pounds due to not eating and not sleeping properly. My mental struggles manifested, hence, my critical weight loss.”
He shared how he hated what he saw in the mirror so he chose to fight and surround himself with people who helped and encouraged him to regain his “fire.” It was a goal “to start loving and taking care of [himself] again.” Luckily, he had a strong support system that never failed him and whom he considers to be his “MVPs.”
Now healthier and in his best physical form, Valenciano feels “stronger than ever, confident and most importantly, happy.”
“Make a decision to be better today, just life in general, and take it one day at a time,” he said. “No need to rush. You’ll get there, you just need to keep walking towards the right direction.” JB
