The turning point: Even though I knew that I was rapidly gaining weight, it struck me when I was clicking a selfie. I realised that I had gained a lot of weight and I needed to do something about it. While it was really difficult to begin my journey to lose weight, I could not get that selfie out of my head. I did not want to look that fat or overweight.

I indulge in: I do not believe in the concept of cheat days
My workout: I do cardio for 30 minutes every day. I also work on two muscle a day.

How do I stay motivated? Slowly, when I began to witness tangible changes in my body, it motivated me further to stay fit and lose weight. My gym friends also kept me inspired and motivated. How do you ensure you dont lose focus? I have realised the importance of being disciplined in life. When you are determined and dedicated, no one can stop you from achieving what you want. Whats the most difficult part of being overweight? It was really heartbreaking when I wasnt able to fit into the clothes of my choice. Moreover, I wasnt able to see my shoes when I stood straight.
What shape do you see yourself 10 years down the line? I want to have six-pack abs and a sculpted physique.
