Her update has since gathered over 2 lakh views.
If I can do it, anyone else can too: Sania
Detailing about her weight-loss journey, the Grand Slam winner said that it requires "a lot of hard work, discipline and dedication," to get rid of the extra kilos you put on while being pregnant. However, she mentioned, "If I can do it then anyone else can too," directed towards those women who "don't take care of themselves or don't find the motivation or inspiration."

Sania has created #MummaHustles for posting her post-pregnancy updates
"I've been asked 'bout my 'weight-loss' journey sooo many times. So I'll try to post some of it," she said. These posts will be under #MummaHustles, and are expected to inspire those who "find it so difficult to come back to 'normalcy' after child birth."
"That one or 2 hours a day will do wonders"
In her post, the 32-year-old tried to motivate others by saying, "Believe me that one hour or 2 hours a day to yourself will do wonders to you physically but sooo much mentally as well." Yesterday, she shared another video, day 2 of her hitting the gym after delivery, showing her working out, albeit she looked a bit tired and fatigued.
Sania's body wanted to give up, but something drove her
Describing it as "one of the toughest days to get myself to go to the gym," the athlete details how she had "sore body, tiredness, sleepless nights with the baby." "After day 1 of such rigorous work out, my body wanted to give up and accept that it may never respond to exercise the same way as before," she narrated, but something drove her.
It doesn't happen over night...It is a process, says Sania
"It was my mind that kept me going.. my jumps could get higher, my technique could get better, my stamina could get better..but it doesn't happen over night! It is a process and once we accept that nothing can hold us back," she shared.
This is how Sania worked out on Day 2
