What do you do when you hit rock bottom? Well, 36-year-old Mamta Bajaj knew that there was only one way to go-- it was to get up and get moving. Her weight loss story is an inspiration that no matter where you are or what you are doing, anything is possible if you set your mind to it. An architect by profession, Mamta was really frustrated with her unhealthy lifestyle and her growing weight. When she finally decided to change everything holding her back, there was no stopping her. Here is her weight loss story! Name: Mamta BajajOccupation: ArchitectAge: 36 years

Height: 5 feet 1 inch

City: Pune, Maharashtra

Highest weight recorded: 86 kgs

Weight lost: 27 kgs

Current weight: 59 kgsDuration it took me to lose weight: 1 year 5 months

The turning point: There was a point in my life when I knew I had hit the rock bottom. My weight had got out of my control and I felt really lethargic and exhausted all the time. Moreover, I wasnt really doing anything to get myself out of that situation. Ultimately, I grew so frustrated with my situation that I decided to completely change my lifestyle. I pushed and dragged myself to join a gym in June 2018. It was incredibly challenging as in the beginning it was impossible for me to even run for half a kilometre. However, I made it a point to work on my stamina and endurance every single day. Today, I am glad that I did not give up!

My breakfast: Boiled eggs, a cup of tea and 2 paranthas

My lunch:A bowl of dal and a portion of green vegetables

My dinner: A bowl of dal or soup, a portion of salad and boiled eggs

Pre-workout meal: 3 glasses of warm water

Post- workout meal: A cup of black coffee with a portion of peanuts

I indulge in: I have no fixed cheat days. I usually indulge in biryani and butter chicken. My workout: I make it a point to follow a balanced workout routine. So, I do weight training, cardio and functional training religiously.

Low-calorie recipes I swear by: I vouch on soups, salad, boiled eggs and boiled chicken. Fitness secrets I unveiled: When you are on a quest to lose weight, you are bound to hit a weight loss plateau sooner or later when your weight will refuse to budge. When the same thing happened to me, I completely stopped consuming salt and carbs. How do I stay motivated? Whether it was the loss of inches or the shifting of pointer on the weight scale, I could see that my hard work and determination was paying off. It also made me realise what I was really capable of!
