Hey everyone , hows you doing ?
I am so sorry 🙁 forgive me for this . I didn’t make the video for this topic. This topic is too too emotional for me. I started with the video many times and ended up crying. So finally I quit the idea of making the video for now and decided to write down my experience.
SO THIS IS MY REAL PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND I REALLY WANT TO SHARE IT WITH YOU ALL. MANY MUST BE SAILING IN THE SAME BOAT …
Looking at my old pictures literally makes me cry at times. My face looked extremely bloated , eyes weren’t even visible because of my ultra fluffy cheeks , face looks disfigured although cute 🙂 The icing on the cake was that I never made myself feel that I was FAT/OBESE . I enjoyed eating just about everything without thinking about my Weight. I thought I was the chosen one 😛
My Apa used to nag me like forever. ” cuckoo you are so fat and ugly, which boy will marry you” Obesity becomes a major impediment in marriage issues.. I didn’t care 🙂 Relatives used to harp to my parents’ If she doesn’t loose weight you guys will have to give loads of dowry , in-spite of her qualifications’ . ‘ She looks like a man, who will marry her ‘. My uncle used to tell my mummy ‘ Rose aren’t you worried about her marriage , just look at her, guys will run away’ . Family Friends ‘ cuckoo you don’t want to loose weight? What are u thinking and when are u going to start’ and the comments and nags never ended 🙂
But you know what I never cared. I always thought the Man of My DREAMS will always accept me the way I am without degrading me in any form. So I was cool and these comments really never pricked me so much. I was a baby elephant from past 10-12 yrs 😛 . My weight had gone up to 90 kgs :P, except my mummy no one else knows this 😛 . My Apa always insulted me regarding my weight, so I thought of not letting him know I was 90 kgs 😛 His advice for loosing weight was ‘Just Starve cuckoo’ 😛 lol this advice was the funniest to me CUCKOO AND STARVE 😛 NEVER
HERE FINALLY BEGINS MY WEIGHT LOSS….
In February 2013 the worst phase of my life – I became extremely unwell. No idea how it started. My left Knee, both ankles had become like a over bloated face of mine (SWOLLEN). I couldn’t walk at all, I was almost paralysed but not paralysed literally. Thank God. My Brother used to carry me to the Toilet 🙁 which was really sad, being younger and lighter than me that time 😛 was really sad to see him carrying me 🙁 The pain was so miserable and unbearable and I just wanted to Die and be at peace. I suggested Mummy to even take me to Holland and give me Euthanasia. ( I got loads of abuses for this from mummy 😛 ) But I just wanted Peace from my Pain, I just couldn’t take it for a day also, I had to get operated and admitted and so on… My Mummy went through hell during this Phase, without her support,love and care I don’t think I would have be physically and mentally stable..
In short MY WEIGHT-LOSS BEGAN 🙂 If I had to walk I couldn’t weigh 86 kgs anymore 🙂 With depression I lost my appetite and was just eating so that I could have my medicines. Mummy started giving me warm Barley Water to reduce the swelling on my legs and YES barley water helped me big time with weight-loss. By end of February I became 78 kgs from 86 kgs.
THIS IS THE DIET I FOLLOWED FOR THE WHOLE MONTH OF FEBRUARY ( I was a vegetarian due to LENT)
- 8.00 am – BREAKFAST- A Bowl of Strawberry Flavoured Oats
- 10.00 am – A Fruit ( apple, pear)
- 12.00 pm – 1 glass of Warm Barley Water
- 1.00 pm – LUNCH – Bowl of White Rice, dal/rasam and vegetables.
- 4.00 pm – A Fruit
- 6.00 pm – A litre of Warm Barley Water
- 7.00 pm – DINNER- Same as LUNCH
- 9.00 pm – A glass of Warm Barley Water .
- As for EXERCISES , I didn’t do any . If I had little energy I did a few breathing exercises.
I continued this diet for the Month of March also . I started walking and didn’t find it too difficult, I felt little good 🙂 I being such a Self-Obessed girl , didn’t look at myself for the whole Month of February.When I finally looked at myself in March I looked like a Bear- Thick eyebrows, moustache and little beard too. It was a horrifying sight for me, but on the positive side my face looked less chubbier and skin was glowing. I didn’t take care of my looks at all , but my skin was glowing , I thank Barley Water and the Healthy Food My Life (Mom) prepared specially for me.
Mid March – I started walking for 15 mins a day and started doing few Tummy and Breathing exercises.
April ,May , June – DIET WAS ALMOST THE SAME ( Started with chicken, fish), WITH LITTLE CHEATS HERE AND THERE (sweets) 🙂 What I stopped was Binge Eating 🙂 Fried dishes was a Big No No to me . I started climbing ( started with 2 kms and it went to 8 kms 🙂 , Power Yoga and Tummy Exercises. I started with Avataa Green Tea and this does wonders 🙂 CLICK ON THIS TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE GREEN TEA . Daily I have 1 Litre of Warm Green tea 🙂
July I became 75 kgs -Diet was the same, I completely stopped rotis in my diet ( because I love Rice) , NO WHEAT WAS INCLUDED IN MY DIET AT ALL AND LATER I REALISED THIS WAS THE REAL BENEFIT 🙂 I stopped with Barley Water for now.
September – I was going through my Books and Luckily I found this old Book .
THIS IS A BLESSING FOR ME,I realised why was I loosing weight when i stopped WHEAT. This book helps you understand ,whats right for your blood group and trust me guys I have followed it and seen a major difference 🙂
October – Same as the above . If I don’t want to a eat a meal I have Healthy Drink
I AM O POSITIVE…
I stopped Pulses totally , Certain Fruits and Vegetables also and included few new ones in my daily diet 🙂 Included Plums , Prunes, Walnuts also..
I am following a good healthy Diet with few Sins once in a while and I am fine 🙂
I weigh 70 kgs now ( November 2013 ) 😉 and woohoooo I am happy 🙂 touchwood .
THE WORST PHASE OF MY LIFE MADE A MAJOR POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN MY LIFE .. I thought I would’nt be able to walk anymore 😛 Jesus and My Mummy proved me wrong 🙂
Relatives Stopped Nagging Me and they don’t want me to loose anymore 🙂
But you know what I don’t care for their feelings 😛 I AM HEALTHY AND THAT WHAT MATTERS 🙂
I feel happy, blessed and content with life 🙂
At times My Mummy couldn’t recognize me 😛 I love my Apa for insulting me but I didn’t care . Had i listened to him and his insults seriously I wouldn’t have gone through the worst phase of my Life but never-mind as I always say BETTER LATE THAN NEVER 🙂
I thank my Mummy the most for Everything, I just cant do without her. In February I avoided talking to any friend, relative. Just stopped contact with all my dear and near ones and I became close to Jesus, daily I used to talk and cry to him ‘ why has this happened to me’ ‘ am I cursed’ ‘black magic’. All negative thoughts in me 🙁
Jesus guided me and helped me to be positive with Life 🙂
10 more kgs to go 🙂 I need to become 60 kgs by my Birthday thats March 26th 🙂
I hope I helped a few 🙂 LOVE YOU ALL AND THANKS FOR READING 🙂
