I get asked all the time, “how much do you weigh?“. I understand the question and the desire to know the answer, because I used to be the same. I would look at celebrities who had a similar body shape and height to me and then I’d Google their weight ? Of course I would think, “okay if I can get to this weight, I can look like her“.
It just makes sense. Like 1+1=2 ✅ But it wouldn’t work like this. I’d get to my goal weight and I’d be dissatisfied. I’d find another reason to hate my body. My legs were too short, my arms were too long, my boobs were too small, my knees were too big (I’m serious), my torso was too long, my skin was to pale, my butt was too big. I remember telling this to my boyfriend and he just looked at me like I was crazy ?
He didn’t realise that women dissect their body parts into little pieces so we can find fault with every part. He would just look at me and tell me I’m beautiful ❤️ All well and good and nice and all but you are your own worst critic. The number on the scale is just another part of your body that tells you to change, tells you you’re not good enough. I don’t weigh myself anymore. I still struggle to love my body just the way it is, as a complete package, not bits that I wish I could exchange.
But as I started working out, I started to love my body more and more. My physical changes weren’t drastic but I grew to develop a deeper love for my body. I could appreciate the curves I would develop, I started to like having a bigger bum, I loved feeling strong and fit, I live for the feeling I get after a workout ? Of course I still have days when I wish I looked like @iza_goulart ? but mostly I feel pretty good ? The scale only tells you a small part of the story, there’s so much more to be told than a number ? @madalingiorgetta
Don’t focus on the skinny, do focus on the healthy ?? fast forward 10 months, 1000 extra calories a day and #BBG and I’m stronger, healthier and happier than I’ve ever been ???? I spent so much time in the beginning of my fitness journey trying to be thin. To me, this meant a low calorie diet. I wish I had known from the beginning that a high calorie diet doesn’t necessarily mean fat gain! There’s good calories and there’s bad calories, so obviously you can’t just eat 1800 calories of donuts and pizza ???
And if you’re not exercising a high calorie diet may not be for you ❌ But, if you are working out 5-6 times a week you need to feed your body ?You can’t grow muscle without the right nutrients ???? and my body has thrived from all the extra nutrients!
