Readers share the stories and strategies behind their weight loss.

Last week, we invited you to share your diet and exercise strategies with us.

Here is another response from T R Sriniwas, who has lost 29 kg over the past year:

It started off in November 2011. I weighed 114 kg and was not even able to breathe properly when climbing stairs or driving. I had a problem with severe snoring and sleep apnea. I used to eat pizza every alternate day, and drink eight to 10 cups of tea with a minimum of two heaping spoons of sugar daily. I never walked or took up any form of exercise. I used to eat a lot of white rice with ghee and fried vegetables, full of spice and salt. And I used to sleep at 10 pm every night without even waiting for my food to digest.

Since then, I have changed my routine entirely:

The result of all this is that I have lost 28.5 kg till date and 12 inches off my waistline. I am determined to come down below 80 kg now.
