If you have read my posts earlier, then you know that I mostly write about my love and devotion for god, but today’s post is a bit different, it is about a journey I thought I’ll never be able to accomplish.
I have always been a chubby kid since childhood, and I never actually minded it, everyone called me cute. But as I turned 19, I realized that I was not only overweight and unhealthy, but continuing down this path will result in some health disaster sooner or later. Might not be today or tomorrow, but ten years down the line, I’ll regret not taking any steps when I was at my prime. I have always been a thoughtful decision-maker, and that’s what helped me here.
Funny thing is I have been inspired by fitness models a lot of times before and had always said to myself, “Okay, I am starting this exercise or this diet from now on,” but that “now on” just never came. My inspiration never lasted for more than two days.
Then one day, I was going through my social media when I found some pictures of a classmate back from school days. Boy! She looked gorgeous in every outfit, and that’s where it changed. Models did not inspire me, but that girl did! Maybe because I knew her, she was my age. So, if she can be fit, can I? Comparing ourselves with others is not bad when it results in something good for us. I went through her account every single day for the next 20 days or so and told myself that I want this fitness, and I am going to try my level best.
After that, it all changed, will power and discipline are the only two things you need to succeed at anything. Everything else follows automatically. Within six months, I was almost ten kgs down. I never thought it was so easy, but when you really really want something, it becomes easy, every effort that has to be done comes naturally after the first few days. I don’t follow any hardcore diets; in fact, I am against them. I still eat everything I love and am completely fit.
I Will mention all the details in the next post, to keep the posts short and avoid boredom. So, keep an eye out for part two, will post it under 36 hours.
