Arranging Your Wardrobe can be an Inspiration for Weight Loss

Arranging your wardrobe can be an inspiration to loose excess body weight. Thinking How? My inspiration to write this article is my old friend Jogita . Few days back I met Jogita at a party and it was amazing to see her looking much fit and beautiful, I noticed she had lost weight.

It was a talking topic of the party and she revealed her side of story, what inspired her to act so determined.Female_Vector_Character_Wearing_Fashionable_Clothes_Small

Two years back around this time, she just decided to arrange her wardrobe and get rid of the old clothes that she has not been wearing for long.  To her surprise she found that most of her clothes not used for long are in excellent condition and almost not used; they simply do not fit her as she has put on too much of weight over the last few years.

Life has been very demanding for her, corporate job, getting to office at time, long working hours, home management, devoting time for kid and husband other social duties  had left no time for work-outs and fitness regimes. Also regular consumption of junk food, sleeping at odd hours clubbed with all these.

She decided to get into a weight loss regime that suits her life style.  The first thing she met her doctor and got a few simple tests done and got sure that there is not much significant problem other than diabetes range (Blood Sugar – Type II) that is getting higher. The trend showed an increase over time.

Then she joined a morning walk circle in her locality. Planning the strict routine was never easy. Bed time became early by cutting off the television viewing time to wake up early morning. By 6.30 am she joined her local walking circle contacting over whatsapp.  By 7.30 back home checking the daily work with the maids and off to office dropping her daughter Sarika to school.

The regular cafeteria lunch got replaced by home cooked food.  On the way back home alternate days going to gym or yoga class, within one month that became difficult to continue anymore due to time constraints. 

Returning back home helping in daughter’s homework, dinner, time with husband and family all to be completed by 10 pm.

Amazingly she got into her designer evening dress after 5 years and the weight machine says she is 72 kgs that is 5 kg less in 5 months.  She realized that another 8 more kgs lost will make things good for many other dress lying in the wardrobe almost unused and in new condition. 

The secret of how she reached 56 kgs and looking super fit. So she revealed that around 9 months back she has undergone bariatric surgery at local super speciality hospital and soon after things changed, she has lost a lot of weight and her diabetes range is almost normal and she is feeling great. She has also saved a lot of money as all the old clothes in her wardrobe is fitting her, almost no new shopping for last 9 months.  Jogita mentioned that she is now only continuing her morning walk 2-3 days week and she is not gaining weight. Yes she at times meet her doctor at the hospital and lives on healthy home cooked food. 

First were Mrs. Kapoor , Mr and Mrs Sen to take the contact of the hospital. I am hoping to see more people in our group slim and smart soon.

Shopping is Good for Heart and Health

Weekends are great time for shopping.  We all love to shop and spend time in great looking shopping malls looking at and trying things.

Window shopping ca also be fun and also allows us to keep updated about recent trends in fashion. 

Weekends are popular shopping time for family and working individuals alongside the busy afternoons at shopping malls where we see kids and moms and younger girls and boys.

Shopping is good for heart and health. Shopping allows us to move, turn, stretch and bent while walking across the shop windows, displays, trying the displayed articles etc It is always better to have some walk than to sitting whole day. Shopping also makes us feel happy as we look and imagine trying and buying things around. It also allows our mind to think diverse things that are mostly not stressful. It is break from the daily grind.  

The colourful shopping malls, shops, well decorated and with a lot of happy people around pumps happy energy in us and we feel good. dc6apLkdi

If we are regular in shopping areas, malls we need to be careful of the mouth watering junk foods as frequent consumption can increase body weight and it is bad for health.  It is better to carry clean drinking water from home to avoid aerated drinks and have some healthy home cooked food before starting our shopping so that some healthy little munch suffice the hunger we get while moving here there.

We need to be careful about our child / children and keep a watch on them also bags and other articles so that we do not misplace any.

It is always not important to buy, that we can also do online, but it is important to walk around, see many beautiful things and be among happy people for some time, it will refresh our mind and body.
