I weighed 81.60 kgs and my waist measured to be 108 cms on 12.02.2013. My doctor said that I am “unwell” because of my weight as my mom is hypertensive and my dad was diabetic. So being heavy weight or you say, Obese
is not at all good for me, or anybody actually. I met physiotherapist and dietician and my physician to know what should I do. Then I just started my journey to ‘lets lose some weight’ as per th
eir instructions (as I had too much of time). It was my final semester at college and I had to visit my department only once in the afternoon. I gave all my time to myself. I worked out for 90 minutes everyday and used to religiously follow the diet chart. In first 15 days, I had lost 2.5 kgs and 5 cms from my waist 😀 It boosted up my motivation like a hot air balloon. I was able to lose 5.5 kgs of my weight in next 40 days. That made me go crazy 🙂 🙂 🙂 , and this made me go further. Finally, I was 15 kgs down in 6 months (by mid August). This was one of the toughest period of my life. Apples, Cucumbers, Oats, Papayas… I had started feeling sick of them. I could not eat Mangoes for 2 years in a row 😦 . I ❤ Mangoes 😦 😦 . Sometimes, I simply used to feel down and dipressed. The word “Ice cream” was gone out of my life now. I had forgot the taste of Samosa and Jalebi. My tongue had gone numb I guess 😛
I had to go to Chennai in the last week of August,2013 for joining Cognizant. Chennai is beautiful. People are so desciplined, but a little orthodox in nature. But their food is something that we people from Northern India do not like at all. After staying in a Paying Guest for 2 months, I left that place and went to another PG that let me cook for myself. And then again started my dieting 😀 When I stood upon the weighing machine in February 2014, I weighed 60.20 kgs 🙂 and my waist was 85 cms now :). I used to wear ‘XXL’ and now I was looking for ‘M’ size attires :). I had never thought that I will look so ever again :). When I met people they were treating me as a celebrity 😀 B-). I still try my best to maintain my weight.
I do not want to lose any more weight (however my doctor has told me that my ideal weight is 55 kgs). I eat hea;thy, follow healthy routines. I just want to stay healthy and I am ready to do anything for it :). Because I have understood that being over weight is no less than a curse!
