Thank you Sneha, I have chosen to work with a group of women because I want to help them and it is going really well, thank you for the kind wishes. Jeny, I can't post videos here as it is not my website, however, I post a video almost every week on my personal FB account and it is always a public post so anyone can view it.

Thanks Medhavika and Trushali. Megha, I lost a total of 28kgs over 3 years but the last 11kgs came off quickly once I understood how important nutrition is in the process and paid more attention to it.

You are welcome Lavanya. I find it so interesting that everyone wants to know how long it took me. Fact is it took me a very long time to learn the basics, I didn't even know the basics and I didn't even try to seriously lose weight. I lost 28kgs over a long time simply because I hadn't learnt the basics - weight loss is 80% nutrition and only 20% exercise, you cannot out exercise unhealthy nutrition choices. Once I internalised that, I lost 11kgs in 8 months.

Pratibha, thank you for the compliments. When I felt comfortable, I added more time and increased the days of my workouts, it was about getting into the habit first before I could challenge myself. No these are not the only exercises I did, I changed things up as I got stronger. I lost 28kgs over a long time simply because I hadn't learnt the basics - weight loss is 80% nutrition and only 20% exercise, you cannot out exercise unhealthy nutrition choices. Once I internalised that, I lost 11kgs in 8 months. I don't believe in dieting as it is temporary. I made lifestyle changes: no processed food, cut back on carbs, increased proteins and green vegetables and fruit. Portion managing my meals. Eating 3 portion managed meals a day and two snacks, ensuring half of my breakfast has proteins, no carbs or fruit after 6pm.

Thank you Misti! Afaf, I understand the frustration you feel as I have been there. I don't believe in dieting as it is temporary. I made lifestyle changes: no processed food, cut back on carbs, increased proteins and green vegetables and fruit. Portion managing my meals. Eating 3 portion managed meals a day and two snacks, ensuring half of my breakfast has proteins, no carbs or fruit after 6pm. Exercises are plenty with both dumbbells and a resistance band, in fact, I am in the process of creating a fitness program for moms to do at home. You can do squats, lunges, bicep curls, tricep kickbacks, overhead extensions, shoulder presses etc.

Pooja, thank you for the lovely compliments. How did I stay motivated? I called it finding my "why" - my deep rooted reason for doing this. Every time I felt demotivated, I would revisit my goals and my "why". I posted this in my private group: When you are tired and your child asks you to cook one of their favourite dishes which would take you an hour to prepare, do you make an excuse or do you take that hour to make that favourite dish for your child? Why do you do it? Why doesn't laziness take over in that situation? It is your love for your child that makes you overcome that laziness, the joy that child expresses when he/she takes that first bite of the meal you make. You do it for the joy of your child, correct? Now tell me, don't you, the soul that resides within you, deserve the same love and effort? If not, why not? What is holding you back from loving yourself as unconditionally as you love your child?Why do you feel that you aren't special enough to be taken care of? You should have that same love for yourself that you have for your child. You are SO WORTH IT!
