In 2012, I was 32 years old.
And weighed 90 kgs!
All my life, I had treated my body like a dustbin.
Dumped it with bad food at erratic times, with total disregard.
An accident led me to work on my health.
At that time, my colleague Ajay Singh gifted me a very tight tee shirt, that he called “Embarrassment Tee”.
“Ankur, whenever you go to the gym, you will wear this tee.
People are perhaps going to laugh at you.
You will feel embarrassed.
But this tee shirt will be a constant reminder that work still needs to be done!”
Using that metaphor, I still remind myself that I have work to do.
I still put myself in situations where I could get embarrassed.
I still wear an embarrassment tee.
Not only for fitness.
