I was never fat! But married life and motherhood gave me reasons to enhance my awareness regarding ways to control my weight and be fit.The thing which I always resisted was spending money in gym for weight loss. Therefore I was alert, always, to take a note of weight loss method which can be carried from home.
Motherhood experience brings the major change in any woman’s body.I also put 10 kgs extra weight after my first pregnancy.I was not able to take it. My inner soul was desperate to try all lovely dresses and get back to my previous jeans as soon as possible. Because somewhere I had a feeling if once I put on weight it will be very difficult to get back to normal. So I had to act instantly.First of all I started having a vision of the shape I wanted for myself. I strongly believe in the concept of visualization where you have to create a vision of your dream in your mind. I have been working from home most of the time, this gave me right time to devote for my fitness regime.Then I focussed what things can I follow regularly to keep a strict discipline for my weight loss regime. I started walking and made sure that I was listening to music during my walks.. It gave me immense relaxation. Slowly I observed that the more I was relaxed the more mindful I became about my eating habits. Yoga came as a blessing to me for getting more relaxation in life. As I started getting mindful, it helped me in positive parenting too.
Being an Indian I love Indian food.I just can’t resist fried food. After being mindful I got back to my normal food habits. I never curbed my desire to eat my favourite food, but I focussed on the quantity. I experienced that the more I curb my desire to eat my favourite food , the more fat I was putting on, because though I was not eating but I was visualizing fat food in my mind , so this effected negatively for my weight loss efforts.I got back to my normal weight in 6 months time.It requires discipline, and only discipline to lead a healthy life. My discipline helped me to adopt healthy lifestyle forever.
Being slim not only helps me look better but I feel active too. Its all about that feel which gives me confidence and motivates me to take care for my family with passion!
