MANILA – Aiko Melendez clapped back at her bashers who accused her of editing the photos she recently shared on social media showing off her slimmer figure.
On Instagram, Melendez emphasized that her pictures were not edited but are a reflection of her hard work these past months.
“Asan ang edit dyan? I really don’t understand anymore why some people can’t be happy, when someone’s just achieved her goal. Nung mataba ako sabi n'yo mukha akong nanay; now naman in-edit ko. Hindi ba pwedeng I worked hard for it? Hindi ba pwedeng I have gone through pain and sacrifices just to achieve my weight now?” she said.
Asking her bashers to give her a break, she said: “Envy doesn’t lead you anywhere. Just be happy. Like I am happy.”
According to Melendez, she went on a low-calorie diet in the past months which resulted in her noticeable weight loss.
“I told you I went on calorie-counting I went as low as 500 calories on my first month to maintain the procedure @docyappy did to me. Masama pa dn? This is my body! I am accountable to myself and no one else. I am also taking theobroma @officialf2nmarketing which is known also as weight loss supplement. Me prob pa din?” she said, unedited.
Stressing that her photos weren’t altered, Melendez said she already too old for that.
“I am posting to inspire people who are struggling with their weight. That there are ways and hope for all of them. If that’s a sin, then I don’t know else what is right,” she said.
At the end of her post, Melendez had a special message to her critics.
“To my bashers thank you! At least you are following me and taking notice of me. You must be a fan,” she said.
