Mommy-To-Be Sameera Reddy Was In Depression After Delivering Her First Baby; Reveals The Reason Why
Sameera Reddy and Akshai Varde are ready to welcome their second baby home. Recently, the actress even had her baby shower and shared some beautiful snaps on her Instagram handle. In the pictures, she was looking extremely radiant. Though mommy-to-be is now pretty excited to embrace motherhood for the second time, Sameera revealed that she was in depression during the delivery of her first baby, Hans Varde.

Well, the Race actress conducted 'ask me a question' on Instagram and during the session, one of her followers asked her, “Your biggest failure and how did you handle it?” To which, Sameera replied, “My biggest failure was giving in to depression after my firstborn. I didn’t fight it. It took me too long to realise I felt bad about my body and my image. I hid from the world and was worried about what people would think of me. I took therapy and homeopathy. I will never let that happen again.”

Speaking of her depression, in May, Sameera had penned down a long note on her weight loss journey from June 2016 to April 2019 and how it shattered and regained her confidence in herself. Sameera 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 . 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 . 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 . Special thanks to the best workout crew who also gave me the physical & emotional strength to get fit again @yogabypramila @adishroff @ivan_ultimatefitness @nyelakapadia & Kaizen Motafram my Pilates guru! love you guys.”
