"My Own Story of Battling weight & Confidence from being Fit to becoming Fat & how I fought back ."
Updated: May 1, 2018
“Sometimes in life ...being a professional also ...we overrate our confidence and ability when life expects much more than what it’s giving us..... Do you want to know my own story n how I struggled to lose my post pregnancy weight in JUST 6 months ?!! Would love to share with you all !!! “
I am sure many of you ladies who are reading my blog will relate to my story.
Being a Dietician myself, many of my clients used to share their experience of weight gain post marriage and delivery. Every time I used to make them understand through my counselling & somehow motivated them to follow the program patiently.
I used to guide them well and help them to hit their goals however I never thought that I would face this similar kind of problem in my life too.
Since my childhood till I entered into my Adulthood, I always carried an atheletic physic.
I very well managed my health and my lifestyle on right track.
Despite of my work stress and uneven shifts (At work ),I ensured that my health was perfect. I used to eat right /kept myself hydrated and even went for regular exercise.
However being an athlete/ a fitness freak and a super active Dietician myself 😀,I was finding really hard and frustrating to lose my Super extra kilos which I had gained after my C Sec delivery in 2016. After my marriage I was detected with PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome ) and Hypothyroidism ( the two most prominent syndrome prevailing in our society today ). I managed to conceive naturally by maintaining my health ( Thyroid and PCOS) through natural ( home based diet ), regular exercise & Weight maintainance.
I thought initially that it won't be difficult for me to lose weight as it’s my profession and took my health for granted out of over confidence 😣. I was loosing my confidence to appear in public which ended up giving me a lot of stress. I even tried to restart with my regular workout routine and gradually worked on my diet as well however it was becoming difficult for me to continue as I was alone and eventually failed in balancing both "my health and family". I had to ignore my poor health condition by giving priority to my family.☹️.
I realised that with my current health situation (weight gain ),I was doubling up with various associated health problems such as knee / back pain /weakness/migraine/ high blood pressure & high cholesterol which was due to excessive weight & lack of muscle !!! That was the time I took a pause and reflected .I promised that I wil do all possible things to get my body and health back initially for myself and eventually for my family ....
I had gained a good 26.8 kgs (to be specific 😌)during my pregnancy (unhealthy weight gain due to severe water retention). I was 52 when I had conceived ,went unto 78.8 kg at the time of delivery. There were other Placental position issues which restricted my mobility & aid in overall weight gain.
I designed a very private diet chart and work out plan for myself and worked on it strictly with the right mindset/strong attitude and great patience.. And within 6 months down the line I came back to my original shape (52.4kg ) and most importantly gained high confidence to appear in public and meet my clients with a positive attitude .
I have no more cholesterol/ Blood pressure & PCOS/Thyroid in control ( actually diminished )/ gained my energy back and living happily with my family .
If you are reading this post and can relate to it then do not hesitate to connect with me ... This special designed program is for all who think, 1) That they cant conceive due to PCOS/ Thyroid. 2) That they cant get time to follow the program as they are busy with family& Kids. 3) That they cant lose that post delivery belly which makes them feel as if they are still 5 months pregnant.
