“You find your why, you find your way.”

“It’s not about the weight you lose. It’s about the health you gain.”

“I want the scale to move, but the scale just measures my weight, not my worth.”


Dr. Avishkar Sabharwal

“Finding somebody who’s going through the same journey as you are may actually be very helpful for you.”

“It’s not about taking the blame for or who’s to blame for your obesity or not, the fact is that you’re here, and you’re suffering from this disease. It’s really at this point in time you have to decide whether you want to take responsibility for getting your body to a healthier self or not.” 

“It has to be one step at a time. Rome wasn’t built in a day.”
