I have a lot of things to be thankful this November and this year. It’s kind of hard to narrow it down to just one thing. I got married in November, so I have a soft spot for the month & I have so much to say about the man who is my husband!
But, if I had to really point out, something about this year alone — it has got to be my weightloss. This year I managed to lose almost 10 kilos & my determination was a surprise to me as well. It certainly was not easy, & lot of strength was needed to keep at it. Now, is it not something I should be thankful for?
Last week, my post was about me finding about my pregnancy. This week, it’s something different. Its not about one day, but a pilgrimage filled with struggle, sweat and the elusive “I am finally there” pinnacle.
I was never obese fat, but had always known that I need to lose weight. It was always there at the back of my head.
I knew it was hard, & would start a strict diet for a week or so and give up. One of my pictures, made me realise that I need to do something soon, about this. I certainly did not look my age, & another eye opener was how huge my clothes used to look while I would fold them.
I started slow and gave up the “quick fix” mentality, for once for and all! It took some time, but I kept pushing through the good as well as the bad times. I did a mix of both: eating better & working out. I’m yet to reach my final goal, but I’m at a good place.
As, currently I’m on a vacation, sharing a picture that was taken today itself!
I’m really, very thankful for the weight that I have managed to lose & hope to stay at lesser side for always!
It took a lot of hard work & will power from my end, and I prayed to God daily to help me stay focussed! I still, thank God for helping me reach a better weight…where I’m happy with myself.
