The most difficult part of being overweight was to bear the comments of people and their judgments, realizing that people judge you by your appearance and not by your nature/behaviour. Many of my classmates in school used to avoid me to talk or play with me.

Also, the worst part for me being an overweight person was facing difficulty while climbing stairs. As soon as I started losing weight, I started gaining confidence when people started giving compliments rather than comments. Also, seeing improvement in my health issues motivated me to reach the target weight. With the passing weeks, I was reduced from XXL to XL to L and so on till S or M, and this was the biggest result I have seen.
The turning point: I always wished to wear ready-made clothes but the scenario was very much different as smart and trendy clothes were not available in my size. Then I met with my friend cum trainer who showed belief in me and motivated me to shed weight. That was the real turning point of my life. He inspired me that anybody can achieve goals, only vision is required. So, I got confidence and started losing kilos under his guidance.

Any shortcut for weight loss?
If you want to get the success you need to work hard day and night. I did the same by working out in the morning and maintained my diet before getting into bed at night. I realized ‘Patience’ is the key and I have to stick with it until I achieve my goal. And I will not forget to say that this I have learned from my trainer Sandeep Shekhawat. Patience was my sole mantra.

What worked for me in my weight loss journey: I believe in two powerful words which are Dedication and Determination and I consider these two ingredients which have proven successful during my fitness journey. If you have determination towards your goal then dedication is the right path. I believe Fitness is the internal beauty that differentiates you from others not by thoughts but also keeps you activated throughout the day. These two things worked in my fitness journey.
Thinking that cheating a little bit out of my daily diet routine will not affect my weight loss. But I was wrong. A proper and balanced diet is equally important as a workout to achieve results.
