I am 35 years old. I work in a real estate company as an assistant manager.


While browsing through photographs, I noticed how bulky I looked in my recent photographs. That's how I decided to reduce my weight.

Weight loss journey

I started my weight loss journey on December 4, 2017.

I weighed 90 kg. 

After detailed research on the Internet and with some help from my colleague, I did the following:

I start my day with lukewarm water, lemon and honey.

For breakfast, I always eat oats and white egg with green tea.

For lunch, I eat either brown rice or two chapattis with vegetable and curd.

After a light dinner, I always walk for 2-3 km in the evening. 

I do not consume sugar or fried food. I eat less grains. 

I regularly exercise at least six days in a week.

I drink plenty of water through out the day.

I eat seasonal fruits daily.

I weigh 65 kg now. People appreciate when they see me (fit). I am happy when I see myself. 

Tips for readers

If you want to lose weight, you must believe in yourself.

People around you might pull your leg; but don’t lose focus. Do your best. Be patient.
