You're probably thinking that you've heard it all. But I'd like to say that each transformation story is a testament to commitment and an amazing source of inspiration. Now, I don't want to sound like my story is the stuff of legend, but I'd like to share it as I realize many people out there are probably where I used to be. And, all you need is a little nudge of motivation.
My name is Suryagni Roy, and this is my transformation story.
Back in August 2011, I was this super obese kid weighing at over 155 kgs.
Every night I would go to sleep hoping to wake up with the same mind and face, but not the body. Everyone including my family, friends, school teachers, even random people, would tell me how fat I was and how badly I needed to lose weight. Perhaps, they felt that I didn't realize this. I did. But, I did nothing about it.
I finally decided to join a gym just because it was the last day when they were giving discount offers. I didn't know that it would change my life.
I lost 1 kg in the first week, and within the first year I had lost 40 kgs. My physical change led to a lot of psychological changes. I started reading about motivational stories and started posting my transformation pics on FB, not knowing that I’ll become a motivation to many people who were facing similar issues. I tried my best to help them out and learned a lot from them.
An international fitness magazine “Man Vs Fat” saw my transformation pics on Facebook, and decided to do a story on me.
This was back in 2014, and I had lost 60 kgs by then, by shedding blood and sweat working out. And, all this without the use of any supplements. Rocky Balboa films were a huge inspiration, and would lift me up every time. Actors like Salman Khan and Sylvester Stallone are my idols.
I have been able to lose more than 70kgs with proper workout and diet. How did I do it? HARDWORK! And, If I can do it, anyone can!
