WALK OF LIFE # 4: MY WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY

Those who do not find time for exercise will have to find time for illness.”  Edward Smith-Stanley  

Hi there, I’m Ashar, father of two boys and a fitness freak. Ever since I lost 121 pounds, I’m tremendously attentive towards my weight, diet, and fitness. I want to share my weight loss journey with you through this blog to drive you for a healthier living. Here’s my story:

You’ve probably read my bio there and wondering, “If that figure is even real?” I know why you’re thinking this way, because, with that amount of weight, someone would look like this:

Now look back at my bio image. You’re correct if you’re thinking, “Well, the bio-picture is filtered.” Yes! It’s brightened enough to post here, though quite frankly, the filter didn’t cut the fat on my cheeks, chins, neck, and body. Otherwise, I’d be the happiest person in this world.
I was overweight since I was a child, and I used to weigh 298 pounds (135 kgs) two years back. I’m not even joking!

I was blessed with love…

I was bulky back in my teenage, though I was an active, lively, and energetic personality. I traveled often, and I loved eating. I got genuine love from my parents, siblings, and cousins, and I had generous friends.

I was ambitious…

Like several youngsters, I was an ambitious guy, and I worked with a major firm in my home country where many dreams to get employed. Though I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth, I strived to get that dream job as life is all about hardships. I studied my postgraduate course at the same time I was working since I was 16.

My dream marriage…

In the late 20s, I was lucky enough to marry the girl with a heart of gold, Sana. Her family gave me an abundance of love and respect, and with the blessings of Almighty, I became the father of two adorable children. Not to forget that I even traveled to Australia and thoroughly explored it. I was on cloud nine.

On the whole, I had everything that I could ask for (and still have), and sometimes I feel like I’m living in a fantasy world. Though, I always felt bothered and distressed.

I was suffering…

I imagine you’re probably thinking about why I was suffering this entire time. I’ll come to that in a while, but first, I want to ask you: “Can you remind of something that ever triggered you to adopt a good habit?” Well, I can undoubtedly recall the incidents that prompted my weight loss journey, which I’ll tell you later; otherwise, this post will never end.

So, I was stressed out because I was Obese. I lacked confidence because I was chubby. I couldn’t do skydiving because I was overweight.
