After I saw the drop of the first kilos, I felt motivated to keep working and never looked back.
How do you ensure you don’t lose focus?
Rather than giving into my hunger pangs, I eat more mindfully. I value a food’s nutrition count and content rather than just the taste. This way, I am more conscious of what goes into my mouth and this keeps me super focussed. Even my cheat day meals are moderated and not heavy. I have made it a goal to stay healthy for life, and plan to continue to do so, while enjoying my life.
My message is, one need to not cut out on your indulgences- just moderate, and eat 1/4th portion to satisfy the craving.
What’s the most difficult part of being overweight? Being overweight is an emotionally draining and depressive phase for a person. There’s a point when you feel you cannot lose weight, no matter how hard you try. That feels demotivating.
Since I am also a mother, I had to work around to manage my schedule, workouts with my 4-year-old’s.
What shape do you see yourself 10 years down the line? Perfectly slim, fit and trimmed.
What are the lifestyle changes you made?
-Eating healthy food
-Replacing sugar with jaggery
-Working out for 6 days a week at home
-Being more conscious of my diet and lifestyle.
What was the lowest point for you? It has to be the point when I realized none of my old clothes fit me, and slowly, I lost out on all confidence. I stopped going out even for a walk thinking that I look ugly and fat. I used to overthink that my husband would leave me because of my appearance.
There was also a point when I saw no difference in weight, even after exercising. I still continued, and in a matter of weeks, saw a drastic drop.
