Five reasons why you should stop weighing yourself often: 1️⃣ The scale does NOT measure your body composition! It does not tell you how much muscle you have vs how much fat you have. 2️⃣ It can cause serious discouragement and yields a desire to quit! When we see that all our hard work “didn’t pay off” we think ? what’s the point!? Might as well quit! ? All the while our body actually was changing! See what happens if you don’t quit! Regardless of what the scale says! Don’t let the scale determine your happiness! 3️⃣weight can fluctuate up and down through out the day, week, and month! Did you know after a heavy lifting session or a long hard cardio session your body will retain a ton of water the next day?! How about shark ? week?! Ate out ? the night before? Sodium can make you hold onto more water than normal? ? aren’t regular? Yup that effects the scale too! 4️⃣ If you were to eat maintenance calories (or not count calories at all) And you are consistently lifting, ??♀️ you are most likely losing fat but gaining muscle! The scale may stay the SAME but you’re getting smaller, you have less fat and you’re clothes fit better! 5️⃣ The scale will not tell you the whole picture of your health! It doesn’t tell you how healthy your heart is, how healthy your hormones are, or how strong your immune system is! ??☀️ ❤️ instead of focusing on the scale, let’s try to just be consistent with lifting + cardio, intermittent fasting (if you want), eating well, not over complicate things and then measure ourself 2x a month!
I'm reposting this because it's been going around a lot lately and I've been getting tons of messages about it. There's so many comments going around like "ew she should of stayed in the before picture" "she went from healthy to anorexic" "somebody give her something to eat" "this is ugly, don't people realize men like more meat" "why are people promoting starvation?" First off, I'm used to reading those things and It really doesn't bother me, that's not why I'm making this post ? People like to think that I'm unhealthy now, little do they realize the girl on the left wasn't healthy at all. She barely ate, fainted all the time, would get light headed just from making the bed, and most importantly, she was not happy. I've said it many times before but for all my new friends following me, in the before photo I ate around 800 calories a day which usually consisted of candy and top ramen. I now eat 1800 calories a day of healthy, whole foods. The last thing I want is for girls to look at my transformation and think starving yourself is the answer because its absolutely not. The biggest transformation between the photos is not something you'd be able to see, which is exactly why I don't let those comments bother me. The girl in the right may be skinnier, but she is also stronger. She has learned self love and acceptance of herself with all flaws included. She's learned to love healthy foods and taking care of her body. Shes learned that she's a lot stronger physically then she ever thought she could be. And she's learned to be happy. Don't let your goal be skinny. Let your goal be happy and healthy. Nourish your body with healthy foods and challenge your body everyday with no end goal. A lot of people were confused by the numbers, "how could she be skinnier but weigh more?" that is because muscle weighs more than fat. I've always been skinny, in the first photo I was just what people like to call "skinny fat" I had no muscle or tone. It was never my goal to be skinny, I've been trying to gain weight. It took me 8 months to put on just those 2 pounds of muscle but I am dang proud of gaining those 2 pounds ? everyone's journey is different — CONTINUED IN COMMENTS
"Don't weigh yourself. Throw out the scales. Your weight doesn't matter. But here, let me weigh myself to prove to you that you don't need to" ? . . Seriously though, there was a stage where I needed to throw them out! I spent years staring at that number thinking it meant something — how beautiful, desirable, valuable, popular I was. I was "more" of those things if the number was getting smaller. I was less of them and had less value if the number got bigger ?… I used it to measure my worth. I would tell myself "If I can just get under 60kg, all these good things will happen. I will be better". . . Scales can sometimes be useful if used correctly, as one form of measurement in a weight loss journey. But weight is only one part of it and not necessarily the best measurement. It has taken me a long time to realize that it's just a number and that number has zero bearing on how good or happy your life is. Emotional and psychological issues don't magically evaporate when you hit that goal number you've got in your mind. Only you can control or improve those things, through your actions and thoughts. That number doesn't tell you how kind you are, how intelligent or funny you are, how strong you are or how much you mean to your loved ones. It has no connection to your worth. So please don't give it that power ? #bodypositive #bodypositivity #lifting #weights #progressnotperfection #strong #healthyliving #loveyourself #progress #transformation #throwback #lifestyle #healthymom #happymom #tbt #fitmom #fitnessjourney #screwthescale #iifym #macros
Now this is a very common question I always get asked. “How much weight have you lost since the start of your fitness journey?!” Uhmmmm. The truth is that I have stayed almost the exact same weight as when I started. As weird as it may sound, my weight has not fluctuated and if anyone were to ask me just how many kg’s I have lost…. the truth is none. This is living proof that the number on the scale is not an accurate measure of progress. Although I may have been the same weight in both the pictures, it is pretty clear that I certainly do not look the same. You see, this is why I find the scale to be so problematic. It does not take into account SO many factors, like for example how much of your weight is actually muscle and how much is fat, the time of the day you are weighing yourself, the time of the month, whether or not you have eaten etc etc. at the start of my fitness journey, I remember placing so much emphasis on that number on the scale. Losing a few kgs meant the world to me and gaining was a terrible fear. These days my approach could not be more different. I hardly ever weigh myself, and if I do it’s in hope that the scale will actually go up ( muscle gains ?). How do I measure my progress? Besides taking progress pictures, my main benchmark is according to how I FEEL. I feel energetic, full of energy and confident- these are my main pointers of progress! So ladies, don’t let a pesky number on the scale dictate to you your self worth. It is not accurate, and can often hinder your progress. ⭐️⭐️
#screwthescale … How much does nutrition play a role in your goals?! For me it was huge! I felt amazing in both of these photos. On the left I was doing @kayla_itsines #BBG program with a goal to lose weight (I had already dropped 15lbs) and thought I could conquer the world! I then soon felt I really wanted to keep my weight but build some muscle so I kept doing #BBG and did the following ?? 1. Focused on #protein; specifically 1g/lb that I weigh 145g 2. Getting in 30g within an hour of waking up and post workout 3. How'd I do this? Eggs, meats, bars (quest, Costco), shakes (@vega_team sport, isopure, @proteinmilkshake, are a few of my fav ❤️), Greek yogurt, nuts, beans, etc 4. Continued to eat 1600-1800 calories (keep in mind I continue to adjust sometimes eating up to 2200+) 5. Continue to trick the system … I don't do cheat meals I'll usually pick 1-2 days and get my carbs up to 300g to keep my body guessing **just remember your body is capable of constantly changing you just need to keep your goals in mind and use trial/error ❤️❤️❤️
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 ?
