Avika Gor recently took to social media to post a picture of hers and fans were surprised to see the transformation she has gone through.
Not only did the actress look fitter in the pastel pink and yellow saree she was wearing, she looked confident in her skin as she posed against greenery. What caught the attention of fans even more was the long, heart-felt note she penned, detailing her journey to getting back in control of her health and finding it in her to love herself again. Avika wrote, “I still remember one night last year, when I looked at myself in the mirror & I broke down. I didn’t like what I saw. Big arms, legs, a well earned belly. I had let go too much. If it were due to an illness(Thyroid,PCOD, etc), it would be okay because that would be out of my control. But, it happened because I ate anything & everything, and I didn’t workout at all.” (sic)
She went on to detail how she believes our bodies deserve better than this and because of the way she believed she looked, she lost interest in dancing too. “I got so busy judging myself & feeling bad that I didn’t leave any scope for outsiders to make me feel bad,” (sic) she wrote. However, Avika soon decided to make changes and bring control back to her life. She ate better and worked out, soon not feeling the need to look away when she looked in the mirror. “Today, I am comfortable in my own skin. Today, I’m peaceful. And I hope you are too? Let’s make self-love cool!,” (sic) she rounded off, urging fans to share their stories too.
Her note was so heart-felt that it’s not just fans who resonated with it. Even Tollywood celebs like Nikhil Siddhartha, Raj Tarun and Tejaswi Madivada told her just how proud they are of her for opening up.
