We'd asked you, dear readers, to tell us how you went from fat to fit.
Here, Rediff reader Aarathi Ganesh from Mumbai shares her weight loss journey.
I am 41 years old. I weighed 103 kg in 2016.
I had hypertension, sleep apnea, carpal tunnel syndrome and was borderline diabetic.
I had tried different ways to lose weight ranging from walking with intermittent diet control to joining clinics with weight loss formulae like lipolysis etc.
Everything proved to be temporary. I would lose around 10 to 12 kg then bounce back to my original weight.
My weight loss journey
In September 2016, I connected with a personal trainer.
I asked him if I could reach my goal of 70 kg. He told me it was possible. I wasn't sure.
Under his guidance, I started working out. I did not follow any diet plan immediately as I was finding it difficult to work out and also follow a diet.
My progress in the first three months were slow. I lost only 2 to 3 kg and felt defeated.
My trainer told me that without any diet plan, it was useless to exercise and expect to lose weight.
I was put on the Ketogenic diet under his guidance.
I have never turned back since.
With Keto diet and exercise, I started losing up to 3 kg every month.
By December 2017, I reached my goal weight of 70 kg.
I regained my confidence and vitality.
I thank my trainer and family members for their support along the way.
