It often does happen with most of us that when things are all good going we tend to take things for granted. The comfort zone is dangerous as much as it is soothing. And it is indeed true that no one has ever grown or excelled in the comfort zone. With Maniesh, an indulgent lifestyle brought in obesity.
Lifestyle changed being obese. Obesity and overweight impacts the body not only physically but also mentally and emotionally. The rut of a strenuous work life and the subsequent unhealthy lifestyle made Maniesh quit the corporate life and focus towards being fit. He was laughed off at by friends and closed ones when he expressed his desire to lose weight and be fit. The social stigma associated with overweight and obesity is something which is indeed tough to bear.
But a strong grit and determination helped Maniesh take this daunting task to fight obesity. It took six months of rigorous work out and planned diet to achieve a level of fitness which was almost impossible to even imagine. The same friends who laughed it off at Maniesh were awestruck seeing this miraculous transformation. The ones who made fun were now asking for fitness coaching from Maniesh.
