Weight Loss with Loving myself..

Weight loss for me is a touchy subject. Yes, I am little obese and I am still trying to shed my pregnancy weight. But, I feel trying to eat healthy (or I should say which don’t add to my extra deposit) makes me lonely.  Just imagine I am having boiled Lauki and my family having delicious Puri Sabji.  In these two years, I have tried many times to stick to my weight loss regime but I gave up every time. Reasons are many but mostly because I was unhappy eating all those boiled and tasteless food. 
Yesterday I came across a WhatsApp video in which actor Akshay Kumar is telling how we can save our coming lives from being shaky as most of the people today have an unhealthy lifestyle. After watching that video I thought for a while and I would say those points really inspired me to go for weight loss habits AGAIN. But I have a different ‘pilan’ (plan) this time. For next few months I am going to do below things for losing my weight without feeling lonely and troubled:
  1. Finding an exercise that hits my soul: Honestly, I don’t have time to go to the gym. And I always give this as the biggest excuse when it comes to doing workouts. Although cardio exercise like running is ideal for weight loss, however, that doesn't limit my options to running alone. Who likes to invest her time in something she doesn't enjoy? So I am going to dance every day for 15-20 minutes on peppy Bollywood numbers and that’s my favorite workout.
  2. I am not going to be obsessed about weight loss: Yes I will be doing many things for weight loss. But this doesn’t mean I should go mad about it. I am not going to scale myself every day. I would weigh myself only when it's necessary. To be frank, I am not going to rely on the scale for my progress. Instead, I would recognize how my body is feeling.
  3. Simplifying my life a bit: What a better time to rid myself of negativities than during this weight loss process? So I am going to clean my closet and give away extra clothes to needy people. I am going to make the distance from negative people of my life. This would be like detoxing my life. Having fewer complexities in life always help in focusing on important things.
  4. Find the right audience: Discussing my weight loss deal with my husband doesn’t seem a good idea to me. So I would go on this journey with someone who can understand me. Like my friend who is also working on losing her extra gains. And for the same reason, I am documenting my plans and sharing it with readers out there. It is said that there is strength in numbers, and taking on a weight loss challenge with others will give me the motivation I need to stick to the plan.
  5. Don’t care what others say: It’s my journey. And I am going to decide how I want to go through it. So I don’t care what others are commenting over my diet. I don’t need to change my lifestyle for anyone. I am doing it for myself and I want to stay happy throughout. So my plan my way.
  6. A Little cheating is allowed: I don’t want to beat myself for eating a piece of cake on my friend’s birthday. I know I should cut down my sugar intake but I want to ease into a healthier lifestyle slowly but surely. I once read somewhere that sometimes our stomach (and the smell of good food) can overpower our desire to stick to your healthier diet. So I would treat myself time to time during my trek.
  7. Write my goals: Writing is very powerful as it opens the doors which we never know. Writing down my goals and continuing to keep up on it can give me the clarity on I would need on the days ahead. I would write down my little achievements and all those challenges which come on my way.

Most importantly I want to love myself during this weight loss excursion and that’s going to be my biggest motivation. Fingers crossed :)
