Putting on weight for me was not an overnight thing. Years of abusing the body with junk food, sugar loaded desserts, drinks led to piling on kilos. And before I knew it, I was nearing the dangerous levels. As a kid, I never realized that munching on colas and chips in my free time will lead to a lifestyle disease of this magnitude.
I had tried several weight loss programmes. I went on starvation diets, fad diets, excessive gymming, slimming centers, but all in vain. Initially, I lost weight, but it kept coming back. One fine day, my husband read about weightmonitor.com in newspaper. By that time, I was 97 kgs and a routine health check-up proved to be the wake up call, highlighting serious threats to my health, heart, sugar levels and PCOD.
Initially, following the diet was tough, as old habits die hard. But the team and dietitians at Theweightmonitor supported me immensely. The diet was custom made for me, keeping in mind my likes, dislikes, schedules and habits. I was reminded to keep filling food diaries every day, which helps to keep track of calories, fats, carbohydrates consumed. I coupled this with 30 minutes of brisk walking daily, which worked enough for me to lose the weight with low carb diet in a consistent fashion. I Have never lost this much weight in one go and it truly motivates me to lose even more. Eat sensibly. I know that goodies out there are delectable and no one is stopping you from eating, but eat in moderation. Never binge and satisfy your cravings with a little bit only. Watch your portions. A chocolate doughnut sure gives a high, but wearing a chocolate colored fitted dress will definitely give you a bigger high and satisfaction.
