In a world where careers outweigh everything else, health has taken a back seat for most individuals. 38-year-old Reet Bhatia was no different. The 6 years she spent as a manager at a multinational company in England saw her weight go from 62 kg to 87 kg. In addition to that, she was diagnosed with high cholesterol in November, 2017.
Having been picky about clothes all her life, it upset Reet that she was unable to fit into clothes that she wanted to wear. In a bid to drop those extra kilos, she turned to YouTube videos for diets and recipes. When these failed, she came across HealthifyMe.
The Journey begins
“In a bid to understand the app, I did my research. I went through their blogs, their YouTube videos and their website before deciding to give it a try,” Reet recalls. There has been no looking back since. As a premium user of the app, she lost 3.5 kg in the first month and this motivated her further.
“Both Arun, and Anshita made sure that I was never uncomfortable with my routine,” she says, “If I had any trouble with my diet or workout routine, they were very quick in making necessary changes to ensure that I was never out of my comfort zone.”
Sciatica did not help her cause either. Severe pain in her right leg and lower spine meant that she was unable to bend or lift weights. “Arun designed a workout routine which involved more stretches that focused on the lower back and strengthened my core. His methods make me believe I can do any exercise given to me,” she tells us, “Although the pain may not have completely stopped, I can say that it has reduced by 90-95%.”
From XXL to L in three months
Three months into her HealthifyMe journey, Reet is now able to fit into the clothes she wants to wear. “Between November and now, I have gone from using ‘XXL’ sized clothes to using ‘L’ sized clothes,” she beams.
In the last three months, Reet has lost 10 kilos. She now weighs 77 kg and has her cholesterol levels under control. However, the 38-year-old future restaurateur vows to keep going till her goal of 72 kg is achieved.
