Roshani was trapped in a cycle of working a stressful job, reaching for sugary snacks for energy and then hating herself for it.
As a long-time gym member, Roshani had never had the motivation to push herself to achieve the body she truly wanted.
After feeling ashamed of her size while trying on bridesmaids’ dresses for a family wedding, Roshani realised her self-esteem had hit rock bottom. It was time for change.
Since joining U.P., Roshani has lost an amazing 28kg (62 lbs), going from a UK size 16 to a size 6. Her transformation has taught her to love taking care of herself, which has allowed her to be more ambitious at work and in her everyday life.
“It shows you that you can do anything. If you want it enough, you can do it.”
Prior to her transformation, Roshani’s routine was chaotic. Having many responsibilities at work left her with a poor routine and diet.
Putting social engagements over her health, Roshani would regularly drink alcohol and go out for meals, ordering takeaways instead of cooking nutritious foods.
Despite being a member of a gym for many years, Roshani could never push herself to exercise regularly, causing her fitness levels to rapidly decrease.
“My previous lifestyle habits made me feel miserable.
“My diet before U.P. was terrible. I didn’t eat well. I’d eat a healthy breakfast, then I’d have a small lunch with vegetables, but then I’d get a takeaway in the evening.
“I went out a lot and drank a lot – it wasn’t good. I didn’t have healthy habits.”
With her sister’s wedding on the horizon, Roshani was regularly pushed out of her comfort zone by trying on dresses.
As the heaviest one in the group, she felt insecure and ashamed of her figure, concerned that the dresses would not fit properly.
Realising that her confidence had plummeted, Roshani decided it was time for a drastic lifestyle change.
As her husband had completed a transformation himself, she knew the kind of results to expect.
“What motivated me was a bridesmaid dress fitting. I’d been unhappy for a while but hadn’t done anything. Everyone there was a size 8-10 and I was the only one there in a size 16.
“In the pictures of the fitting, I was fake happy and pretending to smile.
“Being overweight affected me because I had zero confidence. I’d get ready in baggy clothes, ask my husband if I looked okay because I didn’t feel confident.”
Roshani rapidly started seeing results. As the weight fell away, she threw herself into new and exciting challenges, perfecting the techniques required to weight train.
After relying purely on cardio and restricting her food, only to binge later on, Roshani was fascinated to realise that you could lose weight while remaining fulfilled.
“I started seeing results after six to eight weeks. My waist was getting smaller, and my clothes were getting baggier. It made me feel great.
“I was always a member of a gym, but I did more cardio. I played team sports. I’d never done weight training before. I thought I’d get laughed at.”
Previously worried that weight training would make her look too muscular, Roshani quickly discovered that this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Having always been in the dark when it came to nutrition, working with her trainer allowed Roshani to educate herself on how to stay full for as long as possible.
“The myth that weight training makes you bulky is an absolute lie. I think more women just need to try it and challenge yourself.
“There’s education here, and I never had that before. I thought I had to do loads of cardio, burn loads of calories and not eat very much before.
“Here, you learn how to fit your diet around your lifestyle – you don’t have to starve yourself.”
When it came to fitting the program around her lifestyle, Roshani was surprised to realise how flexible sessions could be.
Previously lacking enough energy to get through the day, she now felt motivated and enthusiastic, brimming with enough confidence to pursue her career goals.
“I went for a promotion at work which I never would have ordinarily done.
“Training has improved my life at work because I’m so much better concentration-wise. I start my day earlier, I go to bed earlier, I don’t feel the need to snack on rubbish.”
Thanks to her new lease of life, Roshani is now looking forward to the wedding that she once dreaded.
Excited to show off her new physique, Roshani described how weight training had allowed her to achieve the body she had always wanted.
Despite being apprehensive at first, the progress she made allowed her to discover her true potential, in relation to work and her everyday life. Now, her smile speaks for itself.
“It shows you that you can do anything. If you want it enough, you can do it.
“I genuinely enjoy coming to the gym now. I enjoy every single session.
“Training here has made me love it. I like progressing. I like how it feels to get that extra rep. It shapes you in a different way to cardio.
“To the people that think the results aren’t possible: try it.”
