Actress Sameera Reddy just shared the tough but inspirational story of her weight loss journey today. Sameera who is currently pregnant with her second child, took to Instagram to tell her followers the real story of weight loss and it is something we don’t usually see. She posted a picture of her first pregnancy when she was close to touching 102kgs and another one of her now when she’s made peace with the way she looks. Earlier, Sameera had spoken about how much it affected her when she went from sexy Sam to the other end. In her caption, she specifies she needed therapy to come out of the darkness of the first pregnancy as well. Her post on how she’s dealing with her second pregnancy is absolutely inspiring. The best part is that she does not dilute the tough journey she has been through, in fact, shows us the other side of how much hard work and time she had to put in to be able to work towards a healthier self.
Talking about the same, she wrote:
I touched 102 Kgs in May 2015, the month Hans was born and I’m not scared to admit it . It took me to the deepest darkest places in my head. My confidence shattered . And I couldn’t lose the weight for a year after because I was too scared to even step out . I disappeared because I didn’t have the strength to be judged by the world after all the years of being glam and fit on screen . But the beautiful part is that you can only hit your lowest low to know you can absolutely climb out of that hole . It’s a fight . A hard one . Took me 2 years more to lose the weight and to step out and face the world again but I wish I had the courage then. I did it naturally with no fad diets , no easy way out. Only with dedicated workout, yoga, pilates and strength training . It’s important for me to post this now because I need women to know the struggle is real . The mood swings , hormonal changes and losing your body shape can mess with your mind. It’s a superficial world and people can be hurtful if you don’t keep up . But the key is to be fearless. Only you can get out of that rut. It’s yours to change. Be brave . You can move mountains if you just will it.
Special thanks to the best workout crew who also gave me the physical & emotional strength to get fit again @yogabypramila @adishroff @ivan_ultimatefitness @nyelakapadia & Kaizen Motafram my Pilates guru! love you guys.

How inspiring is that? Her son Hans Varde is around 3 years old currently while Sam and her husband Akshai Varde are all set to welcome another baby to the family.
We absolutely love how Sameera has shown us the other side of weight loss in the glamour world. This post is sure to be an inspiration to many women out there. Recently, she had even commented on how everyone wasn’t Kareena Kapoor Khan to lose weight immediately after their pregnancy.
She had spoken about her struggle with weight gain in one of the episodes of our web series, The Girl Tribe as well.

More power to you, Sameera!
