Entertainment and lifestyle blogger Reymar “RM” Marcelo likes wearing dresses, makeup, and high heels.
In an interview with DailyPedia, Reymar shared that he began changing his lifestyle to a “girly one” in 2015.
But this kind of lifestyle dod not spare him from getting bigger.
Last September, Reymar said he decided to go to a gym to lose weight.
As days passed, he started to slim down and the masculine contours of his muscles began to appear.
“When I saw the changes (in my body), I was happy about it and even other people (around me), they were also happy about it,” the 33-year-old blogger of Barbieliciousss.com said.
“Tinuloy-tuloy ko na. Then, nag-start na ako magpaiksi ng hair last November,” he added.
At that moment, Reymar said he decided to leave his feminine lifestyle to look more manly.
The blogger, who is also a BPO employee, added that the other reason for transforming himself back to masculinity was the fact that he started to look like someone he did not like.
“Actually, isa din sa reason is my former colleague comparing me to my manager na medyo naka-tampuhan ko,” he said.
“Kamukha ko na raw and girl ‘yon. He he. Sabi ko, cannot be. Kaya nung nakita ko iyong changes, ayun tinuloy ko na at bumalik na sa pagiging boy lifestyle. He he,” he added.
Reymar said he received positive feedback from his friends and family over his decision to stop being a cross-dresser.
“So noong bumalik ako sa pagka-boy lifestyle ulit, madami naman positive response from my colleagues, family and friends,” he narrated.
“And may difference talaga, especially sa paggamit ng restroom. Before ang hirap kasi kapag nasa men’s restroom pinagtitinginan ka and iyong iba sinasabi na mali ‘yung pinasukan ko,” he went on.
“Ngayon, wala na. Dedma na. Pasok lang sa men’s restroom ng wala ng reaksyon. He he. Dati ‘pag nag-CR ako I have to find a restroom na shared. So madalas sa coffee shop ako, especially ‘pag nasa mall,” he added.
His advice to other gay men who also plan to leave their feminine lifestyle was “to make sure that there is no regret.”
“And be ready sa feedback from others, kasi hindi naman maiiwasan na may positive or negative comments galing sa ibang tao,” he concluded.
