Avika Gor Talked About Her Weight Loss Journey And It’s All About Self-Love. The Reasons Are Right

By  | 

It was only a few months ago that everyone on social media was talking about Adele’s dramatic weight loss. And while the entire world was busy fawning all over her, we couldn’t help but feel like it was, yet again, a subtle act of fat-shaming. You see, society will have you believe the thinner the better. But that’s not true. It’s just another unrealistic body goal that makes hundreds of girls feel insecure about themselves. Today though, we came across Avika Gor’s weight loss journey and it’s one to be celebrated. She has lost 13kgs and not only did she do it in the right way but also for the right reasons. 

Taking to Instagram, the Balika Vadhu actress posted a picture of herself in a gorgeous sari and spoke about what inspired her to lose 13kgs. Avika talked about how she was filled with insecurities about her body and decided to work on herself one day when she broke down after looking at herself in the mirror. She said that wasn’t giving her body the respect it deserves. One way or another, I think we can all relate to her. 

Avika Gor’s caption read, “I still remember one-night last year when I looked at myself in the mirror & I broke down. I didn’t like what I saw. Big arms, legs, a well-earned belly. I had let go too much. If it were due to an illness(Thyroid, PCOD, etc), it would be okay because that would be out of my control. But, it happened because I ate anything & everything, and I didn’t work out at all. Our bodies deserve to be treated well, but I didn’t respect it. As a result, I disliked the way I looked so much that I couldn’t even completely enjoy dancing (which I love) without thinking ‘how I must look right now’. I got so busy judging myself & feeling bad that I didn’t leave any scope for outsiders to make me feel bad.”

I still remember one night last year, when I looked at myself in the mirror & I broke down. I didn’t like what I saw. Big arms, legs, a well earned belly. I had let go too much. If it were due to an illness(Thyroid,PCOD, etc), it would be okay because that would be out of my control. But, it happened because I ate anything & everything, and I didn’t workout at all. Our bodies deserve to be treated well, but I didn’t respect it. As a result, I disliked the way I looked so much that I couldn’t even completely enjoy dancing (which I love) without thinking “how I must look right now”. I got so busy judging myself & feeling bad that I didn’t leave any scope for outsiders to make me feel bad. Such insecurities run in the head all the time & they make us feel tired & irritated. Hence, I would often snap at my loved ones. Well, one fine day I decided that it was enough, and that I must evolve. Nothing changed overnight. I just started to focus on the right things… things that I should be proud of(like dancing). I kept trying to eat better & working out, and I had various setbacks. But, it was important that I didn’t stop. And my people were constantly there to guide me. Long story short, I looked at myself in the mirror this morning & I didn’t feel the need to look away. I smiled at myself, and told myself that I’m beautiful. And you, the person reading this, you are beautiful as well. We all have a lot to offer & we must actively work on that, rather than feeling sad about what we can’t do. But, we MUST do what’s in our control. Today, I am comfortable in my own skin. Today, I’m peaceful. And I hope you are too? Share your stories of self-love in the comments. Let’s make self-love cool! – Love & Light Avika☀️

Further adding, “Such insecurities run in the head all the time & they make us feel tired & irritated. Hence, I would often snap at my loved ones.

This is so inspirational. And we completely agree with everything Avika has talked about. It is important to do everything in our power to stay fit and healthy. Being “thin” is not the real goal. Her post sends a message of body-positivity and we are loving it!

What I admire about her journey is how instead of letting her insecurities get her down, like most of us do, Avika Gor turned them into a driving force. Her weight loss story screams self-love and self-care and that’s the most important thing. Losing 13kgs is not an easy task. It takes perseverance and focus. However, I am so glad she embarked on this journey with the intention of wanting to feel comfortable in her own skin and not to merely become skinny or thin. That’s how it’s supposed to be.
