04 Jan Jan 2016 – My Weight Loss Journey Started
This post is also available in: Hindi
Today is 4th January 2016 and I weigh 90 kgs. I have started walking from today. I complete 5 rounds of my park which is approximately 2 kms. I have thought of walking 6 days a week until a month. Walking everyday is the target for this month.
Today is 8th February 2016 and I have completed a month of walking. I am really happy that I was regular because this has never happened. I weighed myself today and it still is 90 kgs. I am really disappointed. There is no change in my weight despite of regular walking for a whole month. But I feel light inside; earlier, the things which I found difficult to do, are kind of easy now.
My husband told me that walking would make no difference in weight loss. it will only improve your health, so instead I should try running. I did a Google search and found out that he is right about it. But I could not run. I felt uneasy and uncomfortable to run in front of others and also, my knee ache had increased. I am unable to increase speed and distance due to this.
Walking for a month gave me a type of confidence and so I decided to include some types of exercises and pranayam in my routine. But it wasn’t possible in the morning because my kids went to school at that time so I decided to do it in the evening.
I have done some exercises and pranayam previously so I have a basic idea about doing them correctly. I have decided to do the following:
KapalBhati – 10 to 15 minutes, Know more here
Anulom Vilom– 6 to 10 minutes
I’ll follow these for 3 weeks and then measure my weight…
NOTE - Friends, I am not dietitian or Doctor, I write information here on the basis of my own 25 kilo weight loss experience and sometimes from online research. Please take doctor advice before applying any tip, as each and every human body is different.

Bindu, as i discussed in my other posts, Walking helps you to stay fit but for weight loss, you need to do brisk walking or jogging for atleast half an hour, only then you can get positive results. Also remember Workouts only help 20%, you need to follow a diet as weight loss depends 70% on diet.
