Ps. This is another beautifully written inspirational post from 2014 and I am reposting it because despite helping people to lose weight and stay healthy, we strongly believe in the fundamentals of self acceptance. In this old post Tarun talks about self acceptance and loving oneself unconditionally.
I know every girl’s dream is to eat but not get fat ! I know every girl wants to become skinny or fit or lean depending on her view of looking beautiful , charming … ohhh so head turning !
If a girl is overweight, sometimes on the journey to weight loss, she gets demotivated. She stops exercising and starts eating junk. You might think it happens when she fails ! Not really.
If I talk about myself, although I have lost a couple of kgs, I am still overweight and this feeling of negativity takes me over every month or so. I know that my weight loss would be a long journey and I know I have achieved a lot and I can do it ! Still, sometimes I feel sad. When I feel sad, stress takes a toll… my routine and discipline in eating, that I inculcated in me with so much hard work goes for a toss ! What do I do then ? The earlier me used to run for pasta or pizza !
Now what do I do ? I have learnt to acknowledge my step by step progress with little prizes . I don’t get frustrated that way. When I lose 1-2 kgs, I tell myself oooh I look so goood ! You call it self-obsession ? Perhaps you are right ! I love myself…the way I am. I want to get fitter and better physically, mentally, emotionally every day of my life, no doubt about that ! Everyday should see a better version of me. But the passion of getting better doesn’t stop me from loving myself.
When I notice a little drop in my weight or inch loss , I put the weighing scale back to it position and jump on my bed . I go to parlor and take pleasure in grooming myself. The thought of facial and massage is already making me desperate !
Earlier, before buying a dress I always thought , let me wait for a while and shed some weight. Now I don’t do that mistake. If the dress fits me and I know I will be able to wear it for a while, I buy it without any second thought ! When I reach my ideal weight, I WANT to see the trail of all the oversized clothes that I would no longer need, yeah !
I wrote this post because someone told me that she hates herself ! She said she is obese and she hates the way she looks. But I know she doesn’t do anything about it. I was a little depressed about this conversation !
So, I wish to take this opportunity to say – Ladies you are beautiful the way you are. No one can be better than you to be you ! If you need improvement in any matter whatsoever, work hard for it but don’t ever hate yourself. If you don’t love yourself, no one else would ! Be your favorite ! Kareena’s famous dialogue – Main meri favorite hoon.. is my secret of staying happy !
