This is my story when life had forced me to almost give up. October 2018, I was lying helpless on the hospital bed. My arms felt weak as if they were simply hanging on my shoulders. I was admitted to a hospital in Nagpur for 2 weeks due to liver issues; the reason being my bad habit of eating junk food daily. Doctors were barely able to find veins in my forearms to put the drip. I could barely sleep because of the pain, bottles of glucose were running through my veins. The only motivation that kept me going was my father. He was always there for me, he left his business and sat beside me till I was in bed.

Unfortunately, the love of my life left me alone, I was all alone at a time when I needed a loved one the most, I went through a heartbreaking breakup. I lost all my strength and hope, It was difficult for me to digest the fact that I was fighting physically in bed and my mental war had just begun. I felt all my dreams slipping away. I felt lost, but I didn’t give up.

I weighed 45 kg and I was as thin as a skeleton and I had no idea what to do. I decided to start working on myself, this was the day when my transformation began. I failed a thousand times, gave up on gym often, and puked because of overeating. It’s hard being skinny and then putting on weight. Eating 3000 calories a day when I was suffering from IBS, diarrhea and sometimes cramps irritated my bowel movements and induced constipation because of my poor digestion. Not eating the right way made me suffer a lot.

The process wasn’t easy; I was gaining 2 kg and then losing 2.5 the week after. I’ve quit gyming 3 times in the past 2 years and even discontinued my diet many times. I weigh 63 kgs now. When I look at myself in the mirror, only my mirror knows about each and every pain and problem I’ve been through. But I’m in a happy place now, because it’s the same mirror that once reflected the weaker me now always reflects and reminds me of how tough I am and how I can get through every pain of my life. I guess it was for the better that I didn’t give up. 


I am still making mistakes, learning from them, and growing slow and steady. I must say this Physical and Mental battle was very demotivating, I felt like quitting many times, but my father was always there for me like my shadow. When I look back, I realize how much self-motivation, self-care, and self-love matter, the power within me helped me be a better version of myself, it helped me defeat everything. I am in control of how I feel today and I feel superb.
