Avika Gor says she cried about her weight issues
Avika Gor of 'Balika Vadhu' (TV soap) and 'Uyyala Jampala' (Telugu film) fame has opened up about her weight issues. The 23-year-old actress said that she had developed a tummy and when she stumbled upon her obesity, she broke down into tears. 
"I still remember one night last year, when I looked at myself in the mirror & I broke down. I didn't like what I saw. Big arms, legs, a well earned belly. I had let go too much. If it were due to an illness (Thyroid,PCOD, etc), it would be okay because that would be out of my control. But, it happened because I ate anything & everything, and I didn't workout at all. Our bodies deserve to be treated well, but I didn't respect it," Avika wrote.

There came a stage when she couldn't even enjoy dancing. "I got so busy judging myself & feeling bad that I didn't leave any scope for outsiders to make me feel bad. Such insecurities run in the head all the time & they make us feel tired & irritated. Hence, I would often snap at my loved ones," the 'Cinema Choopistha Mava' actress added.

Saying that she resolved to shed her weight, Avika added, "I just started to focus on the right things... things that I should be proud of(like dancing). I kept trying to eat better & working out, and I had various setbacks. But, it was important that I didn't stop. And my people were constantly there to guide me." 
Avika was last seen in Telugu in 'Raju Gaari Gadhi 3'.
