MANILA, Philippines - Georgina Wilson is a permanent fixture in the modeling scene, gracing one magazine cover after another.
She has also appeared in several television commercials and music videos as well as on billboards along major thoroughfares in the metropolis.
Most people think that she looks perfect. Wilson admitted, however, that like many people, she gets upset over her body imperfections, too.
The model shared that she used to be “a fat child.”
"People think na hindi ko na kailangan [magpapayat]. And I’m like, guys, baka magaling lang ako mag-pose," she said in an interview on ABS-CBN’s "Salamat Dok" on Sunday.
"When I was young, I was 40 pounds heavier. And when you’re a fat child, it stays with you talaga. So it was really my mission to get thinner," she added.
Wilson said she is currently “super addicted” to non-surgical body contouring, which has helped remove unwanted fat from specific areas of her body such as the waist and the abdomen.
Fat stored in these parts of the body, she said, usually cannot be burned with exercise.
"I do dieting and exercise, but there were fat in some areas that wouldn’t go away," she said.
"Wala akong bewang kasi sobrang diretso ang katawan [ko]," the model admitted. After regular treatments, she now has a 25-inch waistline.
Wilson shared that the process involves three steps. The first is lipo cavitation, where ultrasonic waves melt fat cells; Multi firm, which helps remove remaining unwanted fat; and Tite FX, which tightens the skin.
She said her friend, actress Anne Curtis, also underwent the said treatments for “No Other Woman,” where she played the role of sexy mistress Kara Zalderiaga.
In the film, Curtis was often seen wearing skimpy swimwear and short, tight-fitting dresses.
"Si Anne bewang niya 26 naging 23," Wilson said.
Aside from regular exercise and her trips for non-surgical cosmetic procedures, Wilson said her other secret to staying slim is her healthy lifestyle.
"Dapat ‘wag naman fried foods all the time," she said.
The model said, however, that she still has one guilty pleasure: ice cream.
"I’m super mahilig sa dessert. I like ice cream," said Wilson, who is one of the Philippine ambassadors of a luxury ice cream brand.
