Sameera Reddy, who is expecting her second child with her businessman husband Akshai Varde, recently took to her Instagram to share her post-pregnancy weight loss struggle and consequent depression after the birth of her first child Hans Varde.
The actress also shared an image of herself from 2015, taken after the birth of her first child. She also posted a current picture of herself pregnant with the second child.
Sameera talked about how her weight took away her confidence and she disappeared as she was too scared to step out. 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 .”
She further talked about how she managed to lose all the weight she had put on and how hard the fight had been. Sameera further went on to write,
“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.”
The actress talked about her struggle and mood swings all along. She also gave a strong message to the women who are struggling with the loss of their body shape. She wrote,
“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 . ❤️.”
