Your 'Aha' weight-loss moments
Weight Loss Glory of losing 110 pounds
food always and that too junk food. Basically I led an unhealthy lifestyle
I landed up into a hospital at age 25 having high Blood Pressure and high cholesterol. Also my mother was a diabetic and suffered chronic renal failiure.
The reason to live a healthy life and not to suffer as my mother did motivated me to embark my journey of losing weight and moving towards good health.
I followed very slowly a healthy lifestyle of proper exercise , proper diet and proper rest as per my physical and mental capacity. I started walking daily and slowly incorporated rope skipping in my daily schedule of exercise.
I gave up sugar and fried food and included fruits, vegetables and lentils as main part of my meals . I made it sure that I slept at least 8 hours daily. It took me a complete year to lose 110 pounds of weight.
The key to my success has been never compromising on healthy nutrition. Due to work schedule I have missed out on my exercise schedules many times , but i made it sure that I consistently followed a healthy eating pattern daily.
People do not believe I am the same person . I keep getting comliments . That keeps me motivated.
All me health parameters(Blood Pressure, cholesterol, etc)
which were in the wrong range when I was obese are now in the right range . That keeps me motivated.
Above all a good health happiness feeling keeps me motivated.
I pray every day and thank god for giving me an opportunity in this life to experience weight loss benefits and good health.
I learnt a lot about nutrition and exercise during my weight loss journey . I propagate the message of good health through the following websites:
