My focus used to waver initially, but then I always made sure to look at my dream dress which I hang in front of the almirah. This helps me stay fixated to my goal as I always wanted to fit into the dress.
What’s the most difficult part of being overweight? Low energy levels. I was so overweight and tired, I couldn’t play or pick my one year old daughter for a long time. Even when I had to stand, I experienced back pain.
What shape do you see yourself 10 years down the line? 10 years down the line, I want to be the fittest mom in the world and most importantly, an inspiration for those like me who face weight problems.
What are the lifestyle changes you made? Firstly, I made changes to my diet and then slowly and gradually, added workouts to my routine. Even today, I make sure I complete a minimum of 10,000 steps every day, without fail. The days I cannot workout or walk, I play with my child, walk around indoors or dance! Everything burns calories.
What was the lowest point for you? I always wanted to lose weight but I faced criticism and shaming. One of my relatives once told me that I would never be able to lose weight and develop lifestyle diseases early. That was the day I decided to prove them wrong.
