Yes, you’re absolutely right. I was or maybe i am still a person who is over weighted but you know it’s been a wonderful journey for me, while transforming from 103.5 kgs to whooping 84 kgs (as of Today). No, it didn’t happen over night and it wasn’t easy at all. You have to struggle all your way through the hardship, dedication and resistance. You have to eat in a right manner while you do hard work in gym or road work wherever you want to shred those extra kilos of your body. Excessive fat in body is never a good thing and i think i have realized it quite late but as they say, better late than never.
1st step towards anything is always the toughest and same goes in case when you want to lose your weight. So, first you need to start jogging/running whatever you seem fit and this is the 1st step when you want to shred those extra kilos. You really need to work hard and let yourself sweat like a pig but in the end you will know, it’s worthy. Also, when you start cardio to reduce weight, try to hit on treadmill first as due to heavy weight road work might affect your knees, so do keep that part in check. Also, try to jog for not more than 40-45 minutes as it might effect your body strength physically in initial days. Increase your distance or time on weekly or fortnightly basis.
2nd step towards weight loss is doing crunches on daily basis. I know it’s one of the toughest exercise but it’s one of the main core of your body which help you to reduce belly fat and allow you to find those great abs you always keep dreaming of. I started with 25 when i started my gym routine almost 6 months back from 4th April and it has been doubled since then. I haven’t change my cardio routine and do almost 40-45 minutes(5.6 kms) on daily basis so that i will reach to my target within time. You need to have a lot of patience when you start doing all those exercises because results might be quick in initial days but as you move on, it will take time and you might cling to same weight for 2 weeks to 2 months but just carry on. Do your regular stuff and 5 days a week is more than enough if you keep the right diet.
3rd and final step towards weight loss is doing squats. Squats will always be a tough exercise when you’re a over weighted person but don’t give up. You can always start with minimal numbers and do on alternate days or 2-3 days a week is good. But always remember, squats help you to strengthen your legs as well as helps in reducing belly fat. Also, do remember while shredding weights, more than exercise, diet is important and it’s always a combination of 60% diet and 40% exercise. You should avoid sugar contents like cakes, pastries, donuts, ice creams for the time being and do avoid sweets of any kind to keep the weight maintained. Also, try to eat minimal amount of rice once in a week if you can’t say no to them. Always try to eat more fruits, salads and right amount of protein should be included in your diet as well. For vegetarians, you can eat curd, have milk, sprouts, soya, raw paneer is good for health. Also, you can introduce protein supplements as protein also help to reduce weight as it helps you to maintain body muscles.
Last but not the least, never ever give up in life. You can always do it if you make your mind to do things in life. Nothing is impossible or impossible is nothing. So just carry on, keep doing your regular stuff and always have patience. Sometimes you won’t see the result so early, thus keep waiting, keep working hard and just move on. Once you’re able to understand your own potential, nothing is impossible to achieve in this world.
And above quote says it all. That’s all you need to move on in life and do the hard work. Train your body and mind, rest will come with ease. Always remember 3 D’s of life which will help you to achieve anything and those are, Dedication, Devotion and Discipline. Always be the person who inspires people and final thing,
“People will never love you for what you do until you achieve it and shut their mouth. Let your actions decide their words”.
