Occupation: Senior Contracting Supervisor in Travel and Tourism Company
Age: 31 years
Height: 5 feet 10 inches
City: Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Highest weight recorded: 96 kg
Weight lost: 32 kg
Duration it took me to lose weight: Approximately 1 year
The turning point: As I continued to pile on kilos, I slowly began to lose confidence. Be it corporate presentations or any other kind of social gatherings, I started feeling shy and uncomfortable. Furthermore, I was not able to sit on my office chair for a long duration of time.
I realised that I needed to lose weight and get back in shape. So, I gradually changed my eating habits and even started dieting. I also went ahead and joined a gym, but I wasn’t able to continue it for more than a month. At this point, my uncle suggested me to include Kombu Thaen honey (forest honey) in my weight loss regime to kickstart my weight loss journey. Slowly and gradually, I actually started to lose weight.
