Positive #transformations are always great to see as an end product. The journey to a transformation however is almost always hidden. On the first day of #phd #gradschool in @umasschemengg, I introduced myself by saying....contd.

....I came to the US for the ‘#science’ and ‘#fitness’ industry that is known to be the best in the world. Everyone got a good laugh 😂 out of it. However, I wasn’t kidding at all 😈! I always had this vision of a scientist 👨🏾‍🔬who is also ripped to the core physically 💪🏾.
In that pursuit, I reached my best physique towards the end of year 2 of my #PhD when I also got #married 👩🏻‍🤝‍👨🏽 to @priyankaitkar9. I was still not quite there with the #science. Today, 4 years later, I am successfully @PhDone2020 and getting close to the best shape of my life!
That journey between the year 2 and year 6 of my PhD, I hit rock bottom #physically and #mentally! Some days I did not want to look at a mirror. We lose a lot things during a PhD and physical/mental fitness (along with #hair) are the first ones to go. #depression #Mentalhealth
At @UMassAmherst, besides the intellectual learning, I discovered many fitness activities including #biking 🚴🏽 , #soccer ⚽️ , #softball 🥎 , and #skiing ⛷ . I met several people that were on a similar #journey and some that had turned it into a #reality. That was #inspirational!
Thanx to my #wife, #parents, #inlaws, close #friends and #mentors for getting me where I am today. I #promise you, I am only just getting started on those #dreams 😇🤩🤟🏾
