The Journey Towards A Healthier Lifestyle

Kiran Dembla mentioned, “I used to look at myself in the mirror and feel bad about what I had done to my body. It affected my self-image and confidence greatly. I felt very demotivated. I decided to do something about my condition.” In 2007, Kiran Dembla started to recover from her health condition. She mentioned, “Initially, I started swimming. I thought it was the best way to lose weight, but swimming did not work for me. Later, I switched to gyming and yoga. At 5 am, I started going to the gym and worked hard. In the following 6-7 months, I lost 24 kilograms. My achievement made me feel good, and it was a huge boost to my self-confidence.”
