Remember when I was 19 years old, I was as much as 25 pounds overweighed than the weight I should have been.
I had to tolerate lot of criticism and embarrassment due to my bulkiness, yet I never accepted my parent’s suggestion of joining a health club.
I had to lose fat without exercising! So I invented a mediocre way out of this. I named it- ‘self help’.
It was actually a set of amendments in my daily routine. Few most important amendments are as follow:
- I started parking my car at the back of the lot.
- Started avoiding escalators and used stairs.
- Rather than eating my favourite extra cheese burger/chicken sandwiches, I started ordering green sandwiches. That was not a mere amendment, it was sacrifice!
- I always used to relax on my couch and talk to my girlfriend for hours. I brought a little twist in this habit too. I started walking while talking. This was proved to be the most effective change in my habits.
- For travelling short distance journeys, I started using my bicycle.
These were the points (along with few others) that changed my life. Now I look good. I am of just the right size and in absolutely right shape.
