Prerna’s weight loss story

“I lost 16 kgs weight in 6 months”

Weight loss has been my biggest issue since college. I was quite slim in my first year, but by the end of the fourth year, I closely resembled a baby hippo!

All thanks to the fizzy drinks and oily, fried junk I used to consume in those days. I haven’t really followed any particular diet plan or exercise regime. But I did make changes in my diet and activities to adapt to a healthier lifestyle.

I went from 65 Kgs to 49 Kgs in a time span of 6 months and lost 7 inches of my waist.

It first hit me that I am close to obesity when I came home after 4 years of college and decided that it is time for a wardrobe makeover. College mostly comprised of old, worn-out jeans and ratty, loose T-shirts. So off I went to the stores. And nothing would fit right or look good. Bulges popping out everywhere, love handles quivering and thighs thundering! It was a fashion student’s worst nightmare. Depression set in and then determination.

I am 5 ft 3 inches tall. My ideal weight should range between 47-55 kgs. And here I was. A whopping 65 kgs.

Initially, I craved a quick and instant weight loss. It drove me to desperation. Crash dieting, green tea in bulk….I even started looking up magic weight loss pills (utter rubbish by the way) and was trying to convince my dad for liposuction (thankfully, he had the sense to say ‘hell no!’) !!

I am not giving you magic food recipes or miracle exercises. I am merely telling you the basic things you need to do.

I have put together some points that helped me out in losing weight. These are things that you already might now. But mostly things I discovered work for me best. I have managed to shed those extra kilos and maintain a stable weight with a toned, not saggy body and a healthy, glowing skin.

WATER! Say hello to your new best friend. Drink 2-3 bottles minimum every day. Most of the time you feel hungry when you are actually thirsty.

I still drink a lot of fluids throughout the day. Green tea, low-calorie beverages, coconut water, etc. They keep you full and make you feel lighter and more active.

My Workout

Don’t drink coffees and teas from the machines! Take your own with artificial sweeteners or brown sugar!

Going out with friends? Choose places where you can walk around a lot. Irrespective of what your friends are eating…stick to your own choices.

Your skinny friend ordered a cheesy pizza with a large coca-cola and chocolate brownie for dessert? Well, guess what? You are having a salad with lemonade! Or grilled chicken/ paneer/ vegetables!

Don’t cheat! You can cheat your mind but not your body.

My Lifestyle Changes

I stayed true to all these points. Not only did I drop the excess weight…I also maintained it!

Eating healthy is part of my life now. It gets difficult for me to eat oily, greasy snacks the way I used to. I still enjoy my treats…chocolates, French fries, butter chicken…but in small quantities. Now it’s more of an occasional indulgence. Otherwise, I just end up feeling sick.

And that’s the way it should be. These sorts of foods are meant to be an indulgence, not your everyday food! Then you truly enjoy them.

Stay fit…stay healthy…Stay active!

I have put some pictures up….stages of my weight loss progress over the months.

Hope you guys find it helpful.
