'I didn't go out, no pictures, no enjoyment, mourning over our loss, Aliens to the world as i have said earlier!'
'But yeah here's me when I got up stronger and walked towards exploring what i could be!! A Journey from 2010 to 2018'

IMAGE: 'There is no substitute for hard work,' says the 22 year old from Mumbai who stuck to a low carb diet and regular workout to shred and tone her body.
'I consume 3/4 scoop of the nutrition supplements -- generally known as pre workout -- 15 minutes before my actual workout starts,' says the fitness influencer who has 1 lakh followers on Instagram.
IMAGE: For those who believe that lifting weights is masculine, Nehal has the following advice.
'Lifting weight will burn fat and define your muscles (which makes your body look toned).
'Every individual has rights to make their own choices. Let's not be judgemental or indulge into body shaming if any woman out there chooses to build up heavy.
'Let us all break this stereotype, the concept of a feminine and a masculine body. It's just in our minds.'
IMAGE: In 2018, Nehal won the Anything But Ordinary Diva and Miss Beautiful Body titles at the Yamaha Fascino Miss Diva held in Mumbai.
IMAGE: Nehal was guided and groomed by former Miss Universe Lara Dutta to prepare for the pageant. Her stunning transformation journey will inspire you to stop giving excuses and chase your goals.
'My only competition is the person I was yesterday!' she says.
