There are no words to describe the pain that I have gone through due to my obesity. Let's say you go to a shop to buy a shirt and pant. Unable to find the right size, I asked a boy there regarding the same. He said, "Sir! Your size is not available here". Please visit ALL Stores. That was a slap in the face to me saying "drop your size". Another scenario: I was in a lift packed with people and it says "Over capacity", my colleagues would suggest me to get off and take stairs. Took it on a positive note and tried a bit hard than what I did earlier by joining a Good gym that charges 12k for 6 months. The trainers there started saying, you will not reduce your size unless you hire a personal trainer. They forced me to buy protein powder that I never wanted to buy. When I ignored them and started doing Gym on my own, they stopped cooperating with me. I got fed up with them, transferred my Gym membership to somebody at a loss of 4k. I am back to the square again. By that point of time, I have tried jogging, walking, gym, crash diet etc. You name it, I tried it. Except visiting a Dietician, I tried all the possible ways of reducing my weight. I thought Why to waste amount by visiting somebody who takes off food from us when we can do it on our own?
But my dad insisted on visiting a dietitian. I have searched for various dietitians around my place. A lot of Big names, corporate clinics showed up in google with pretty good reviews. But all those reviews felt like scripted ones. But there was this lady that had close to 12-13 reviews where people poured their heart out on how she helped them reduce their weight. After going through the reviews I have been determined to visit her clinic. She is Ms. Deepalekha Banerjee.
The day I had visited her, all the doubts that I had on her ability to transform 'me' into a 'new me' have disappeared. I am a pure vegetarian. She has given me a plan that consists of eating all the healthy food that I never tried. I never felt a thing after switching to the diet. I feel the same energy that I used to feel when I was eating all the food that I should never have. It's been a month and I lost 6 kilos. I would have lost more hadn't been for my temporary relocation. I feel lighter now. I feel healthy. I feel that the journey to see myself as a 'new me' has just begun. All the thanks to Deepalekha Ma'am.
