This book hit me hard! As if it was written especially for me! Coz’ let’s admit it, we all seek to be just as beautiful and fit as the ones we see on billboards and magazines. Author Malu Tiongson-Ortiz has written a follow up to her best-selling books, Ikaw na ang Maganda: How to be Beautiful Inside and Out, Ikaw na ang Maganda Book 2: Dress Up Pure and Lovely. Awesome books released by OMF Literature, Inc. Oh! How I wish I have read these first two books too!!!
Now, on her 3rd book, Ikaw na ang Maganda Book 3: How To Be Fit and Fab, Malu teaches women how to be physically, mentally and spiritually healthy. Here you’ll be reminded not just to be beautiful in your own way, but more to be a good steward of health.
It’s such a beautiful book written by a sincere woman of faith. And I totally agree, being thin doesn’t mean your fit!
Our body is amazing! We have to show our appreciation to our creator by taking good care of this body that He has entrusted to us. As stewards of our body, we must be physically fit and healthy. This is a must read for those who want to develop their self-esteem and self-trust. We can do this, mommies! Totoo naman nga, “No pain, no gain”!
Here are some special and important points you should read from this book:

Sometimes, we just can’t help but think, “I want to be beautiful too!” or “How can I be as sexy as her?” It’s when you see the curvy models, or you start noticing fine lines on your face or your hair turning gray. We, of course, want to be attractive to our boyfriend or husband. Most especially on this time where our culture and the media bombards us with messages that says, “this is what beauty should look like, and you don’t measure up.” Nakaka-stress!!
But you know what? We can choose to receive abundant and balanced life. It’s all about our choices and self-discipline.
This book is from a writer who knows all about it. With God’s great love for us, beauty will come out naturally. Thanks for this book! It is really insightful and has definitely motivated me to be the best I could be for myself and this body I just borrowed from God. I hope many women will be able to find and read this!
One more thing I love about this best-selling Ikaw Na ang Maganda series is that they’re compact and handy. You can avail of this book at OMF Lit Bookshops, Passages Bookshops, Philippine Christian Book Stores, National Book Stores, and other leading bookstores nationwide. You may also order online. Oh, and I heard it will also soon be available in e-book format!
Thank you so much to Millennial Moms PH and my good friend Icel for this book! I really enjoyed reading it! Let’s all be fit and fab this 2018!
