“I was born chubby… I’ve always been on the heavier side. In school, people shouted things like ‘If she sits on a bench.. The bench is going to break.’ And in college, when I entered my classroom, people would say ‘oh look. The baby elephant is here.’ I had lost the little confidence I had to begin with. I couldn’t even make a group of friends because I didn’t have the courage to approach anyone. I avoided going to family functions because my relatives would say ‘oh, you should lose weight-- why don’t you work out? Or do this, or go to that doctor?’ And to make matters worse -- I couldn’t even share my sister’s clothes because she was a size s! At a point, I stopped getting out of the house all together -- succumbing to depression, I disconnected from the world -- no one could reach out to me.
But, when my own best friend referred to me as a ‘football’ in front of others, I finally snapped. Something needed to change… and that couldn’t happen from the couch of my living room.
I shut out the noise and focused on a solution. I started with jogging...luckily my diet at home was pretty healthy already… but I started paying more attention to it. I cut out the junk and everyday continued to jog.
Then last year, I took up running and ever since my life has changed. From running to lose weight, I actually began to run races competitively! I found a new passion and more than anything else, every time I crossed the finish line, I felt like I was sending a reply to all those who bullied me for my weight.
I’ve lost about 40 kgs through this journey, because when the world tried to pull me down I didn’t hide -- I took on it as a challenge and ‘ran’ towards victory. Guess what haters? This ‘football’s hitting every goal!” .
I don't have to tell you how fragile this precious gift of freedom is. Every time we hear, watch, or read the news, we are reminded that liberty is a rare commodity in this world.
Someone is still paying for it ,
Shattered families ,
A wife for whom her husband is just a memory,
A son for whom his father is just a photograph,
An old father lightning the funeral pyre of his son,
A broken mother.
This is the price of our freedom.
Happy Independence Day.

Just because you don't see results after a day or a week , don't give up.
You may not see changes , but every smart choice you make is affecting you in ways you'd never imagine.

TUESDAY TRANSFORMATION POST
It all started with a sudden instinct to lose weight, in search for a better version of me. From being insecure about myself to smiling out confidently now - in 3 years I have seen many changes in me, both mentally and physically. Somewhere in this weight loss journey I discovered the turning point in my life: It's not about the weight and diet game anymore , it's about the love for my sport, and there's no turning back! It's been an amazing journey, but there's still miles to go.

Accept that u won't always make the right decisions,
You'll screw up, sometimes badly.
But ur mistakes Don't mean you've failed , only that you're trying and learning in life

It comes down to one simple thing. How badly do you want it ?
I am a mom and I had faced the same hurdles everyone does. Lack of time. Dealing with health issues. Being generally lazy.
More than anything else. Being impatient and wanting quick fixes. I was naive and tried everything from the gym diet to crash dieting. I learnt the hard way so learn from my mistakes.
If I could lose over 23kgs any one can.
Results happen over time not overnight. Work hard,stay consistent and be patient.
TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY POST :
My name is @runjeet_run
I remember one day when I ran 500 meters and gave up. It was really heart breaking for a man who was University level Powerlifting player in 2008, Under-18 body builder, NCC c-certificate holder. Under 16 hockey state level player but 9 Hr Sitting Job and 3 Hr daily travel has made me an overweight person.
Being persistent for running has changed my life. Now I can run 30km in 3hr 15min, passion is now an addiction. As decided to improve my endurance and control weight I ran and lost 10kg in 4 months and still work in progress.
Running gives me happiness and Joy. Get drenched by sweat gives me an immense pleasure.
I Ran and found Myself.
