This is just a work in progress but here's my story: (Left) March 2016 - 110 kgs (242 pounds) (Right) Now - 77 kgs (171 pounds)
I started my fitness journey in March 2016 when I woke up in the middle of the night experiencing my first panic attack, which lasted 6 hrs and was eventually diagnosed as generalised anxiety disorder. My dark phase started in Oct 2015 when I was breaking down constantly every few hours and falling sick often - because of a series of sad events (which all have happy endings now😁) I was emotionally and physically drained of every last good thing. Mainly, I was constantly worried about my health and it consumed my mind - with good reason: I weighed 110 kgs (242 pounds) at my highest and looked like the picture on the left. Because of my anxiety abt my health, my BP started to read high and I couldn't stop my panic attacks and dizziness and cold sweats. I actually thought I was going to die every single night when I would wake up neck deep in panic. That's the feeling I won't ever forget and can't get over even today, that I would wake up at night and expect the worst - that my heart is failing, that I'm about to collapse and die any second. Enter visits to the doctor, my psychiatrist, anti-depressants, and my complete reclusion from public. My mind had become my enemy - so toxic along with my body, and I was about ready to break. But I decided to change my life and I'm currently still working on seeing that decision through to the finish line. And fuck all that depressive shit, I've never been happier or clearer about my goals! I'm currently 77 kgs (171 pounds) and still have another 13 kgs or so to go. But the main goal is going to be improving my strength and metabolism. Life starts at 25! ❤️ (Btw Ignore my messy room it's only coz I'm always trying on outfits fat or not that never changes 😋😋😋 Swear my room is actually cute)
