I’ve spent most of my late teens and early 20s under a body microscope. Every pound I gained or lost and every inch of my body was scrutinized by my tennis coaches, peers, family, spectators and the public. This led to seven years of struggling with extreme diets, disordered eating and obsessing about each and every inch of my body. It affected my self worth and my ability to function normally and prevented me from enjoying a healthy social life.

I have put together this video with some practical advice that has helped me. I hope it can help you too.

Neha began playing tennis at the age of 3 following her two elder sisters, to the public tennis courts. At 9, she moved with Shikha to train at the prestigious Saddlebrook tennis academy. Just 16 years old, Neha completed her freshman year at Princeton University winning the Ivy-League Rookie of the Year award for her accomplishments on the tennis court. Taking a leave of absence from Princeton, she joined her elder sister, Shikha on the tennis tour. Neha reached a singles career high of 196 and doubles 110 in the world, boasting wins over a top 50 players (Nicole Vaidisova, Sesil Karatencheva, Lisa Raymond, Angies Radwanksa, Sofia Arvidsson, Varvara Lephchenko and Elena Vesnina). After 5 years on the tour, Neha returned to Princeton University to complete her degree in Sociology and graduated this past June (2012).
