Bigg Boss 15’s Rajiv Adatia who recently got eliminated from the show, entertained everyone with his humorous and crazy side during his stay in the house. The model-turned-entrepreneur was initially skeptical about saying yes to the show but now he is glad that he changed his decision.
In a recent chat with ETimes TV, Rajiv revealed that because of thyroid issues he has gained a lot of weight. This was also one of the reasons why he was skeptical about accepting Bigg Boss 15. Now Rajiv has regained his confidence after losing 14 kg.
Rajiv said, “My new year resolution is to lose more weight. I lost 14 kilos in the house. I have a major thyroid issue because of which my weight fluctuates a lot. When I got a call for this show I was very skeptical if I should do the show or not because I was feeling very uncomfortable with my body. But I decided to go inside the show and I lost 14 kilos. I came out three sizes less than what I was. I want to maintain that and lose 10 more kilos. So that I am back to my normal weight. I now have my thyroid under control. Accepting myself was the biggest thing I did on that show. So I think my new year resolution would be to always keep accepting, loving yourself, and follow your dreams.”
When asked about the phase when he suddenly started gaining weight, Rajiv shared, “I always believe that when you are an entertainer it is not because of how you look but because of what skill you have. It is about what you give to the audience. There are people outside who are not size zero but they are doing so well in life. People are overweight at some point of their life and it is a process of your life. I think it is absolutely fine.”
He added, “When I went into the Bigg Boss house, I was really big. And it is not because I used to eat much but due to the thyroid issue. I used to gain weight even after eating. When I went inside I just let myself free, that see I am what I am. I told myself I will work out and lose after I go home. But with me, my problem was I did not lose weight even after exercising or working out. But now I’ve understood the secret behind weight loss. It is accepting myself the way I am. The moment I accepted myself who I was as a person, the way I am with my flaws, my truth, I started to lose weight. It is not about working out or eating, it is how happy you are from inside. I was just happy being overweight and accepted myself in the house fully.”
