Weight Loss Tips that shifted me from XXL to XL
WeightLoss ?? How ? How ? How much ????
Here is my weightloss story I wanna share:-
After my pregnancy I gained too much of weight . My sweeto in my tummy had rewarded me an additional weight of 22 kg ( May be because my doctor had put me to complete bedrest.) But still ! Isn’t that too big a reward ? Whoop !! Wanted WeightLoss . But how ??? Actually I was never a slim n sleek kind of girl . Even before pregnancy I weighed 67 kg which increased to 89 kg by 9th month of pregnancy. Within 2-3 years of my daughter’s birth , my body shed away 10 kg without much effort, just by the routine job exertion . And then my weight stood still around 79 kg and the needle of the weighing machine just didn’t seem to be in a mood to displace much . All the dresses had to be loosened , some I had to gift to someones 😔😔 ,(they were my favourite ones , I still remember the red pure Georgette salwar suit with golden work on it) U know , Shopping became a tension .
Weightloss- The word started disturbing my mind . And then one day I don’t know how I made up my mind to lose some weight . Some deep hidden desire , will-power rose and motivated me to start working on my weight .
Here I want to share few tips which worked for me and helped me lose weight as well as few inches. These tips helped me achieve the results within 4 months .
1. Brisk Walk
I started initially with 30 minutes brisk evening walk which I slowly increased to 40 min and then to 55 min. Walking really helps you a lot . From the very first day I started feeling light and energised . And it has to be on regular basis . No excuses !!And yes , I truly did it on regular basis . My knees don’t allow me for jogging , so I chose brisk walk as one of the best health routine choices .
I started rope skipping with initially just 20 jumps . Even that much used to tire me a lot . But slowly when you maintain consistency your body adapts to anything new . Slowly my body was able to do a larger number of jumps .
U can also try the way I did . Set a daily target in your mind let’s say of 100 skips . So try to complete it on regular basis . If you are able to do just 20 jumps in one go , then complete your target in 5 intervals with in-between rests of 2 -3 min each . And finish your skipping target at any convenient time you have . This flexibility makes things convenient . But do huff -hufff yourself with the daily skipping routine . It burns lot many calories and is one of the best cardio .
3. Oats in place of Paronthas
I am basically a Punjabi girl and u know we love Paronthas . But my desire to lose weight was strong and I shifted to oats and cornflakes replacing Paronthas in my breakfast . Make spicy veggies oats and it’s really tasty and does fulfill your hunger . But I kept Sundays as cheat days and used to pamper my tummy with stuffed Paronthas ( alu or gobhi )with fresh home made white butter . My mouth is wateringggg u know 😋😋😋😋But no no ……Control , control and control !
4. Light Dinner
I used to have full lunch i.e. dal, sabji, roti , chawal , of course avoiding any fried veggie , but for dinner , I started keeping it only to dal , sabji and salad . Although I am not following any health routine nowadays but in those days when I was fully following these health tips I really kept it this way , no roti or chawal at night . You too should definitely give it a try . If just dal or salad doesn’t satisfy you , you can again have a bowl of oats or make poha for yourself .
Well these were the main tips which I followed that helped me move on from XXL to XL and many complements as the sweet toppings on the cake followed along .
May be these can prove to be helpful to you too . Thanks for reading . Stay Fit ! Be Healthy ! Look Smart !!
