Due to a leg injury and multiple surgeries, I’ve gained about 35- 40kg. I always assumed that once I finished college, I would go to the gym and do my work to lose weight; I never believed that simply altering my diet and walking for 1 hour per day, or performing any sort of activity, would give me these results. My cousin pushing me into this would be the tipping point.

I’ve been going to the gym for about 3 months, focusing mostly on weights and not much cardio, but I would advise others to maintain going to the gym on a regular basis. Due to my ailment, I was unable to attend the gym.
Well, I don’t have a secret; it had to be done, so I simply did it. I didn’t have many cheat days, and I was actually eating just what was on the nutritionist’s charts after the follow-up calls. I believe the sole trick is to keep your mind straight and stick to your objectives, rather than succumbing to your temptations.
Being over weight I didnt really have any problem with it and I like the teddy bear comments:) Apart from the jokes, I had a hard time finding clothes that fit me, and I also had a hard time blending into a group of individuals.
The most significant adjustments were my daily routine of walking and cycling, as well as attending to the gym for a period of time, but the eating transition from junk food to healthy food was the most influential.
