Ps. This is another beautifully written inspirational post from 2014 and I am reposting it because despite helping people to lose weight and stay healthy, we strongly believe in the fundamentals of self acceptance. In this old post Tarun talks about self acceptance and loving oneself unconditionally.

Read on…

I know every girl’s dream is to eat but not get fat πŸ™‚ ! I know every girl wants to become skinny or fit or lean depending on her view of looking beautiful , charming … ohhh so head turning !

love thy body love thyself

If a girl is overweight, sometimes on the journey to weight loss, she gets demotivated. She stops exercising and starts eating junk. You might think it happens when she fails ! Not really.

If I talk about myself, although I have lost a couple of kgs, I am still overweight and this feeling of negativity takes me over every month or so. I know that my weight loss would be a long journey and I know I have achieved a lot and I can do it ! Still, sometimes I feel sad. When I feel sad, stress takes a toll… my routine and discipline in eating, that I inculcated in me with so much hard work goes for a toss ! What do I do then ? The earlier me used to run for pasta or pizza !

Now what do I do ? I have learnt to acknowledge my step by step progress with little prizes πŸ˜› .Β  I don’t get frustrated that way. When I lose 1-2 kgs, I tell myself oooh I look so goood ! You call it self-obsession ? Perhaps you are right ! I love myself…the way I am. I want to get fitter and betterΒ  physically, mentally, emotionally every day of my life, no doubt about that ! Everyday should see a better version of me. But the passion of getting better doesn’t stop me from loving myself.

When I notice a little drop in my weight or inch loss , I put the weighing scale back to it position and jump on my bed πŸ˜› .Β  I go to parlor and take pleasure in grooming myself. The thought of facial and massage is already making me desperate πŸ˜€ !

Earlier, before buying a dress I always thought , let me wait for aΒ  while and shed some weight. Now I don’t do that mistake. If the dress fits me and I know I will be able to wear it forΒ  a while, I buy it without any second thought ! When I reach my ideal weight, I WANT to see the trail of all the oversized clothes that I would no longer need, yeah !

I wrote this post because someone told me that she hates herself ! She said she is obese and she hates the way she looks. But I know she doesn’t do anything about it. I was a little depressed about this conversation !

So, I wish to take this opportunity to say – Ladies you are beautiful the way you are. No one can be better than you to be you ! If you need improvement in any matter whatsoever, work hard for it but don’t ever hate yourself. If you don’t love yourself, no one else would !Β  Be your favorite ! Kareena’s famous dialogue – Main meri favorite hoon..Β  is my secret of stayingΒ  happy !

To be beautiful is to be yourself and self acceptance is the keyword.

IΒ Love Thy Body Love Thyself πŸ™‚ ! What about you ?


  1. So very beautifully put dear. Loved your article and I too live by the statement ‘Main meri favorite hun’ πŸ™‚

  2. Hey,
    Nicely written tarun and I will again watch ‘JAB we met’ .I love the movie and mein apni favourite hun sentence by kareena.Between I have send you a reply on your email address.Will my article get published?

  3. I am FAT/obese too but i love myself …i have few colleagues who give me back-handed compliment that only i can carry clothes/accessories so well even though i am pleasant plump. The reason being I am happy in my skin and the way i look. Frankly when i was young and skinny..i was every uncomfortable with the way i looked…but now after 2 kids and 20 kilos overweight i get loads of compliments….so being thin or fat as nothing to my do with our happiness. We need to accept ourselves…hope you friends does too.

  4. Yeah I love myself too Taru.. We punjabi’s are toh all self favorites I think.. πŸ˜‰ And I am proud of the fact that I am plump at right body parts.. That is what makes a curvy great body.. The parts which need reduction- I am working on them..
    On the contrary, already slim girls, in most cases cannot plump up their bodies at some areas which is required for an attractive great body.. πŸ˜‰
    Its like if you have a large statue, you can carve it down at some places to get the perfect masterpiece but if the whole statue is already thin you can never add mass at any area for the perfect look.. That is how I look at it.. πŸ˜›

  5. Shruti if you want to love yourself then you will have to stop thinking about “people should love me!”. This is one thing that holds us back from our happiness… and instead of crying we need to rethink where we are going wrong and think of making amends in our efforts to lose weight. Agree????
