Hello Everyone! This is one of the most awaited post for me to write. No I don’t want to show off my Fat to Fit Transformation , I know how helpful it can be to people who are finding it hard to work on their body.
I wanted to write about Fat to Fit Journey from last two months but I kept postponing it. No idea why.
It’s going to a long post but I promise it’s going to be worth.
(Also : My transformation story got published on GQ India : How to lose weight like this guy who lost 28 kgs with a unique approach to weight loss instead of dieting )
Let’s go back where it all started.
I was born as skinny child except my head (It was too big for a baby). Also I was a quiet & well behaved baby who rarely troubled anyone. Also I was not very fond of eating.
I started gaining weight when I stopped playing outside & chose to sit at home watching TV. Also I started eating more too (Homemade food though). I was around 8 years old back then.
Soon people around me started noticing this sudden change in my body. I noticed that change too but I was okay with it until the struggle of being fat kid started.
Well , if you’re someone who’s fat or used to be then you know how hard it is to survive for a fat person. It was pretty hard for me. Like seriously so hard.
I used to get trolled in school a lot of times. My classmates used to make fun of my body. They trolled me . I was called by funny names.
Most insulting part was getting teased by kids younger than me. My cousin & his friends almost 6-7 years younger than me used to tease me. It was the most embarrassing thing ever happened with me. Sometimes even strangers made jokes on my body.
Another embarrassing thing for me was visiting relatives. Though I have always loved visiting relatives , I was always ready to get comments on my weight every-time .
“Omg! You’ve gained so much weight!”
“Can you sit on the floor? No, just take this chair.” (They thought I would find hard to sit on the floor)
I was always offered more food because everyone thought I ate too much. To be honest, I was never a over-eater. Lack of physical activity & laziness cost me so much of fat. That’s it. So reason behind my fatness was not food.
How did all these effect on me?
I was shattered. I became more & more insecure about my body , my clothes & myself.
But I wanted to change all this. I wanted to lose weight & get fit. I wanted to shut all those mouths who made fun of me.
Tried, Tried & Tried
I made a decision to loose weight at any cost. To do that I tried a lot of things.
- Yoga – My mom used to do Yoga everyday so she suggested me that it will help me losing weight. I learnt Yoga from her & used to do it every morning (I was around 10 years old then). It did help but not much.
- Cycling – I got to know about one of my childhood friend who lost weight by riding bicycle. I started riding my bicycle more & more. Every evening I would ride it until I am all wet with my sweat. Again not any rewarding result.
- Change In Diet – If you’re a Fat Indian you know first advice you’ll get is stop eating rice. So I stopped eating it. Though it’s actually true ,we must lower carb intake while losing weight. Still because of improper diet , this didn’t work out too.
In 2012 ,I lost 6Kg in a month. No it was not result of activities mentioned above. Actually I was at summer coaching classes for 10th Boards. I stayed their for One & half month , in short it was like a hostel.
The reason behind losing those 6 Kgs was not eating much. I hated food there so I never ate much whole month. Also I got high fever during that period & was hospitalised for a week.
I gained twice I’ve lost before when I came back home.
The Journey Begins
Year 2015,I had completed my 12th Boards & Engineering Entrance exam. First thing I did after exam was joining gym & that is how my Fat to fit journey began. I always wanted to join gym but my parents didn’t allow until I complete my 12th.
I weighed 106 Kg when I joined gym.
This is how I looked
Horrible ,I know.
With this many Kgs I couldn’t even do a single pushup at gym. People at gym laughed when they saw me failing at simplest exercise.
I Gave Up
As my college started it became really hard for me to be regular at gym. I was really messed up & couldn’t handle tight schedule.
I did lose little weight but it was not that much to be noticeable.
This is how I looked in 2016
Found My Inspiration
So year 2016 ,I was busy with my boring college routine. I was also not doing good in my academics.
Then I met a girl on Facebook (Now best friend). I saw her transformation pictures from Super fat to super fit. I was stunned by her transformation.
We became good friends pretty soon. I used to take advice from her about weight loss. Then I decided to join gym again.
This time, I was more motivated & focused. I used to workout regularly & also got some significant results.
I was around 90-95 kg here.
After few months I left gym again. I got 2 backlogs in 3rd semester. I was not focusing on my studies because of improper balance between Studies & Gym.
Failed in college
This is turning point of my life ,I would say. I failed in passing 1 backlog from first year so I was not allowed to continue my 3rd year.
Basically now I had whole year without college. Though I had total 4 backlogs to clear. So , first thing I wanted to do except clearing those backlogs was getting into best shape of myself.
Failures makes your hungry for success – Accidental Blogger
I was hungry for success. I wanted to achieve something to prove myself.
Getting On Track
When I was about to join gym again my parents thought it’s still not gonna work. But I knew what I wanted to do. So I didn’t care much about it .
This time I did everything right. One thing which I’ve always been doing wrong was not having right diet. I was working out before too but I understood that without proper diet I can’t achieve my goal.
So ,I made changes in my diet. Also my trainer made me a great workout plan. It was tiring as hell.
But I was enjoying it. I loved when I got so tired that I couldn’t breathe. I loved to see myself all wet due to sweating excessively. I’ve literally tasted my sweat so many times as my towel couldn’t keep me dry for longer.
April 2018 :
Finally time to upload my Transformation picture lol.
Here I was 83 Kg. I’m wearing same shirt from first picture.
This time I was working harder than I ever did. I was working out twice a day. In morning I used to exercise at home & evening I did at gym.
(Reason behind this was my breakup. I had so much pain inside that I wanted to let it out)
November 2018 : My current weight is 78 Kg
My Current Routine
Since June 18 , my college has started. So I had to change my gym schedule. I workout in the morning from last 5 months. Though I’m not much regular with my workout (4 days a week), I can say morning time is the best time to exercise. It’s such a great start to my day.
Also I’m no longer strict with my diet. No, I still don’t eat junk food. I try to burn extra calories when I consume more.
Why am I sharing this ?
Again , I’m not writing this to show off my transformation. To be honest it’s super awkward for me to share this journey.
It’s because there are many people out there who wants work on their bodies but they are failing. They are looking for that motivation & guidance from someone. And I’ve been there for a long time.
So , my motive is to tell those people to not give up & keep going no matter what.
As I’ve mentioned at the start ,I was inspired by my best friend’s transformation. I’ll be really glad if someone gets inspired from my fat to fit journey.
