For first time, Bea Alonzo posts on Instagram a clear photo of herself in a bikini.
The actress, who is spending a quick family getaway in Palawan, stands underneath a tree with a hand on her waist and a foot slightly arched.
Her blue bikini exposes her midriff.
In the caption, Bea admits that she had never been the type to post photos of herself in swimsuits because of her figure.
Her past beach photos were taken either too close or too far.
The closest we got to seeing Bea clad in a bikini was this shot of her against the sunset.
But since Bea declared 2019 to be "the year for change," the 31-year-old ABS-CBN talent wants to live up to that statement.
Her caption reads: "I have always been the type who would choose not to post photos of myself in swimsuits but since I declared this year as the year for CHANGE, I thought that maybe I should change the way I view myself.
"Maybe, I should get rid of all my insecurities so I can live more.
"I want to forget about how I hated myself for being 'fat' in other people's eyes and just remember the things that I love about my body.
"It's the only body that I am blessed with and I am thankful for my health because I get to do the things that make me happy.
"I hope that this post could inspire other women to love themselves more, flaws and all.
"Let's all work hard to better ourselves for us and not just so others could accept us. [flexed biceps emoji]
