Many people inspire and motivate us with their weight loss journey and one of them is the story of Diksha Chhabra, who went from being fat to a fitness expert today. A few years ago, Diksha Chhabra weighed around 100 kilograms and was struggling with PCOS and thyroid. She said, "I was not able to realise the increase in my weight and then came a situation of Do or die". Obesity gives birth to many health problems. Diksha used to experience breathlessness after a little physical activity. Moreover, she was not even able to play with her child in the park because of her heavy weight.
Beauty queen Diksha was a target of body shaming by a very close friend, which was also a psychological push for her to lose weight. Post that, she became conscious about her body and restricted meeting family or friends. Diksha started focusing on herself and started with basic diet and exercise. She said, "I thought the best way to lose weight is avoiding food as much as possible. Although, this helped in a drastic weight loss of 18 kgs in 6 months, but my health status worsened even more. I got prone to several nutritional deficiencies including Vitamin B12, Vitamin D and I got anemic as well. It was an unhealthy weight loss and I realised that nutrition is extremely important even for people who want to lose weight."
Then, Diksha came across a video of strength training in which women were lifting weights. It was very inspiring and motivating for her. After a few days, she joined the gym and started practicing and learning more about weight training. Along with the right diet and workout, she also started doing expert certifications in nutrition and exercise. Diksha said, "Losing weight restored my confidence and made me feel stronger than ever. With this positive mindset, I even became one of the finalists of Mrs. India. I won the pageant as a second runner up and also won Mrs. Body fit. The platform was a huge achievement and confidence booster for me." Diksha Chhabra is now a well established fitness expert who has trained approximately 20,000 people across the globe.
