Iza Calzado calls for a "body love revolution" this 2018. She said people should treat one another with "love, respect, kindness, and compassion," to achieve enlightenment and acceptance for each and every body type.


It’s another new beginning for all of us as everyone celebrates the arrival of 2018.

While many are listing down their new set of resolutions, actress Iza Calzado is proposing a "revolution" for 2018 and its all about self-love and body positivity.

On January 1, Iza posted a snapshot of herself in a two-piece bikini during her end-of-the-year beach getaway in Phuket, Thailand.

But unlike the usual OOTD shots that involve a lot of art direction and flattering poses, Iza's post featured a candid shot of her sitting on a beach blanket.

But that appeared to be the point.

The Kapamilya star wrote in her caption, "Imperfections. I have so many of them. Stretch marks, cellulites, loose skin, folds, love handles, scars, and so many things I can be insecure about."

Iza revealed her struggles with body-image issues.

"I’ve been on the road to self-love for such a long time. It seems like I’ve been battling this my whole life.

"It hasn’t helped that I’ve been in the public eye for 15 years and have always felt dishonest with my seemingly perfect images that make it to print."

Imperfections. I have so many of them. Stretch marks, cellulites, loose skin, folds, love handles, scars and so many things I can be insecure about. I've been on the road to self love for such a long time it seems like I've been battling this my whole life. It hasn't helped that I've been in the public eye for 15 years and have always felt dishonest with my seemingly perfect images that make it to print. In 2018 I will be more open and authentic about my journey as I've started to embrace myself more thanks to following body positive accounts and being inspired by them plus a supportive group of people around me especially my fiancé, Ben and because of the wisdom and maturity that comes with age. I hope for a REVOLUTION on the way we see ourselves and other people. Love, respect, kindness and compassion are the key ingredients to this and I pray for more enlightenment and acceptance for every BODY. Share your stories by tagging me and @shetalksasia and using the hashtag #TheBodyLoveRevolution ?? 2018 is going to be an inspiring and transformative year!!! ????????

But for this year, the 35-year-old actress is determined to change.

"In 2018, I will be more open and authentic about my journey as I’ve started to embrace myself more thanks to following body positive accounts and being inspired by them...

"plus a supportive group of people around me, especially my fiancé, Ben...

"and because of the wisdom and maturity that comes with age."

Iza then spoke about her “hope for a REVOLUTION on the way we see ourselves and other people."

For her, the first step in starting this "Body Love Revolution" would be treating others and yourself with the key ingredients of love, respect, kindness, and compassion.

She then claimed 2018 to be an "inspiring and transformative year!!!"
