Mayor Inday Sara Duterte has committed to lose 10 pounds by the end of the National Weight Loss Challenge — which was to help promote a healthy lifestyle for the Filipinos — in December.
On Wednesday, Mayor Inday found out that she weighs 166 pounds or about 72 kilograms. Her ideal weight though should have been 155 lbs only based on her body mass index (BMI).
During her weigh in, she vowed to achieve her ideal weight by December.
“Isirado nato ang baba, dili mag pataka og kaon ug kinahanglan iburn ang atoang gikaon through exercise,” Mayor Inday said.
She also challenged city hall workers and officials to shed their excess weights so that the 12,010 pounds pledge by the local government would be realized.
The city government had several physical fitness programs, which could help employees attain their target weight – including the regular Zumba session on Thursdays.
Mayor Inday said offices that can reach their target will get P20,000 each as incentive.
“Naay incentives na P20,000 each para atong mga opisina nga makaabot sa ilahang commitment, pang Christmas party nila kung maabot nila ilahang target,” she said. CIO
