Future Miss Pretty Me
Rewind a few years back. This is what happened to me.
I turned around as I heard someone calling me – ‘Mini Aunty’. I was taken aback when the neighbor’s kid, just 2 years younger to me, mockingly called me Aunty. Heck! Life can’t get tougher for a 16 year old who had always rubbished the remark of being overweight, thinking it’s just sign of good health as her family puts it that way. His words echoed in my ears and heart.
Being raised in a Traditional South Indian family where being obese just meant being chubby; food laden with ghee and yummy savories are bare essentials, it was a sudden jolt of reality that shook me- here I am just two months away from starting my college- time that I have been waiting for a long time now and the very thought of being this hefty me walking through the gates of college only to be mocked and teased for how I looked, sent shivers down my spine.
That very moment I realized gone are the days of being content and trying to be unaware of my looks and health, I can’t stand to lose out on fun of being admired, dating, and making friends like a regular 16 year old. And I also noticed last evening; climbing stairs is not an easy task to me anymore. And newspapers these days are flogged with information on lifestyle diseases caused by obesity, Diabetes, coronary heart diseases; psychological diseases like clinical depression and lowered self esteem to name some.
Tears welled up in my eyes as I thought of my desired new life and its stark contrast to my risk filled present life, but fortunately I have always been someone who takes challenges head on and puts meticulous effort to deal with any situation. Being very organized has perks of its own and so, I decided to plan to tackle this problem and wiped my tears. And about exercise, with my excess weight it’s impossible to shed all of it in months; those deposits needed something that was quick fix yet safe.
I came down to two important things or outcomes that I desired out of this regime:
1. Holistic way of weight loss in a scientifically proven way which will counter attack my fat deposits
2. Affordable prices and lasting benefits.
Moments later I was toggling between various websites which claim of weight losses and its magic numbers in that respect (keeping my list handy in case I waver from my objective). But nothing seemed to appeal me as they had nothing to prove their sanctity. The figures and facts seemed to be manipulated. I needed something which was tried and tested, believable, achievable as I am not one of those who settles for anything less. Plus my dad would only agree to fund for it if I managed to explain to him the benefits of it and how scientifically proven and well known it was.
And lo! I found this website which was top rated – VLCC, and I immediately recollected hearing all about it in every family function by Sandhya aunty and her daughter who would just go gaga over how VLCC changed their lives, so much so that we named them the VLCC’s Angels! But we couldn’t help but agree as benefits were evident, laddu shaped people now looked slim and fab. If they can change I can too as I wasn’t as overweightas them. With a gleam in my eyes like the child who has found its muse, I landed in VLCC’s home page.
I loved this quote in VLCC website under the segment – ‘How VLCC works’ – “A condition of good physical & mental health, achieved and maintained by proper diet, exercise and lifestyle management”. Their detailed review on how it works assured me further.
I made a list of top 10 VLCC treatments/ therapies (so that I will have fair knowledge of what VLCC offers) catering to different needs leading to weight loss.
