“My health was completely transformed when I underwent a healthy weight loss of 12kilos in a time span of 4-5 months using a holistic approach. It was not just inch loss but the journey of 66kilos to 54kilos was accompanied by an increase in muscle mass with an overall body fat% reduction from 38% to 25% which is really remarkable for my height.” This is what Poorna, IT professional, has to say about her overcoming the stubborn postpartum weight retention.
She says she used to look at colleagues; they used to wear nice clothes, jeans, skin-tight sports outfits. “All pairs of jeans I had in my closet would never fit me due to the weight gain post-delivery, it may look like a small thing, but I was quite concerned. I really wanted to lose weight.” She adds.
“I was visiting an orthopedic surgeon one day due to a persistent back-pain. Now, this was quite a recurrent health issue for me. When the surgeon looked at the reports, he said – you need to really keep a check on your body weight. Else, in a short few years, you will have to undergo knee replacement surgery or perhaps even hip-replacement surgery. That was very scary. Hip replacement surgery, knee replacement surgery – getting to hear of this in the early 30s is not a great thing.” She says noting that this was the turning point for her to look at her health with more seriousness and to venture beyond simply googling and utilizing random wellness and weight loss ideas from friends.
“The biggest change I have experienced is that – I have personally changed a lot – not only in terms of physical fitness but in terms of my mental conditioning. I have got a great self-confidence now. I know I can dress very well. I can take full picture. And the biggest blessing is when the same friends who used indirectly pass on comments, now make it a point to shower complements and I really love it when I know I inspire a lot of people to get fit.”
“Now, that I have lost 12kgs, all my health issues – the knee pain, back pain are all gone. Good health is really precious; I would not trade it literally for anything else.”
