Mission Pakistan Fit
Mega Project Blog 2
Our objective was to create and introduce awareness and trends to make Pakistani people health-conscious in the field of their increased weight, especially so we decided to create a platform and initially introduced our limited services and the different aspects of this experience is demonstrated right below.
The following are some relevant question that we as a team of 5 have discussed and analyzed our progress and hope that are providing keen information and the status of our project,
Q1. Were you able to meet their goals?
The answer to this question is fortunately Yes, we were able to fulfill our goals and everything is up to the mark as discussed earlier in blog no. 1.The clients are registered with the help of social media i.e. Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, etc. Whereas some of our members have worked very hard and reached out to many people in-person. People of various socio-economic status was selected strictly on basis of there BMI(Body Mass Index) which was equal or more than 25kg/m2. We are constantly trying to convince other people to be part of our initiative and get rid of there extra weight in the most healthy and constructive way. Losing weight is not kind of quick it requires time and sincerity we as a team are trying to ensure both as we have collected the data and converted it into fruitful and practical diet plans so that they can be implemented as soon as possible and we could monitor the results. Besides this, we have ensured that our clients are having peace of mind and tried to answer their question as efficiently as possible As we know that being overweight is not only affecting our health it also plays with our psychology so we have ensured to create a sense of positivity and passion about this initiative among our clients.
Q2. What were the challenges?’
Every project has many challenges and setbacks we also had some challenges which we have struggled with and tried to overcome first every challenge was to create awareness about the adverse effects of increased weight is it is taboo in our society to discuss and people states that “Allah an humain as hi bnaya ha” which is not correct and we are responsible for our every action and its outcome. Another thing which was concerning was the time it takes to have results of our hard work so we have decided to monitor this thing until our last presentation and conclude our final results in that. One of the biggest challenges includes the myths which people have created about a different thing like the diet is only for the privileged class was very difficult to break but fortunately, there are always people with a growth mindset who were convinced and help our initiative. The team was very much exhausted by this whole process but we all have worked hard and indulged others with us to co-operate and consult. Due to short funds and limited exposure, we were not able to present the influencials of field but we some how managed.
Q.3 What was the outcome?
Our outcome is not concluded as the process of losing weight all together is a collective effort from both ends whereas analytical and statistical data is very positive because of our commitment to the project we were able to convince some people which in our vision is not bad because the change starts from 1.Moreover the involvement of different classes of people with us is very positive as our mission is spreading on a larger scale and healthy Pakistan is Progressive Pakistan.
Q.4 How many people were you able to impact?
until now we were able to contact about 80–90 people on different platforms out of which 10 have consented to be a part of this initiative and have received their first diet plan according to their needs and routine.
Q.5 Would they change their approach in future?
The process of losing weight is very simple but is complicated by our mind and lack of taking the initiative so the counselling part is really impactful and requires a lot of work so we do not guarantee that people will permanently change but ensure that a little part inside them will remember this idea of being healthy as by the awareness ideology we have tried to create to lighten up the adverse effect to obesity and overweight pandemic all over the world and especially Pakistan. So we are very hopeful and ensure our clients that we are always there for them in any situation to help them.
Q.6 Would you continue this project in future?
We hope for the best in the future and we are currently checking the feasibility of our idea in the practical market and have set a goal of changing the lives of almost 65 percent of our total clients. If we will be successful, in the long run, we have decided to be more impactful by adding more professionals i.e. Physiotherapists for therapeutic effects in exercise physiology in clients with co-morbidities. A team of psychologists to ensure that we are engraving our idea to people mind with a positive attitude and to make their capacity for living a healthy life ahead. We would enjoy making our initiative more vocal by digitalizing things, including some volunteers and NGO’s etc.
