How did you loose weight? Probably the most frequently asked questions i have to answer..
This is the only picture I could find, and im sure it says it all.. I was around 68 kgs back then.. I couldn’t find any more full length pictures to best describe how healthy i was, but i hope my face has shrinked to that extent that depicts all the hard work..
So here it is…
There is no shortcut, all you need to do is control your diet and exercise.. And that is a fact that made me loose weight..
People ask me this question wherever i go, and i must say i don’t have any magic wand that helped me loose weight without working for it.. Things like these don’t come for free you see..

So, years before I was struggling to loose weight and today i am in a place, where people compliment my figure.. And trust me, its still not perfect.. And i’m still working on it.. But i guess it’s the confidence, that works its magic..
Back in 2014
Today I thought of writing about it because this weight loss journey is very special to me.. And today being a physical therapist i don’t just wish to have a great body but a strong one.. My profession made me realise how important my body is for me.. Now, it’s my duty to make everyone else realise that..
For all you out there, especially women here’s a message.. Don’t work towards being a size zero, work towards appreciating your own body.. Make it stronger and it would add to your confidence.. And this is what that matters.. Looking at photoshopped pictures makes you jealous? Then work your own body to make it stand out just the way it was made.. But never compare your gifts with others..
I have lost around 13kgs, in 6 years, I started in 2012 and today in the year 2017 this what I look like now..
Yes im proud of myself..
And yes, today the body i have, has been achieved without a single protein shake, without ever hitting the gym.. So if you see people out there doing all of the above and then thinking, this is necessary to have that great body.. Your simply wrong.. I never had protein shakes because my diet consists of daily protein intake.. I never hit the gym cause i knew i could be the best trainer for myself..
This journey made me realise how i, could make myself push harder to achieve the body goals i dreamt of.. This is my dream, and i am the one who needs to work for it.. It made me realise that, all that you can dream of, is what you could achieve.. It made me realise, that i am beautiful, just the way i am..
No, I don’t have a flat stomach, but I wish to have a strong core.. And I’m working my way towards it..
