Girl is REAL! Tells it like it is, loves and embraces her body for how strong & beautiful it is according to HER standards, not society's standards for "women's beauty."
Oh and can I say BOOTY GOLAS!! 🍑
But seriously, please read ⬇️
‼️Lemme get real with y’all real quick‼️
Over the last few weeks I have felt so much “heavier” than normal, but not in an unhealthy kind of way. So I weighed myself today just for the hell of it and I was 191 lbs. I don’t weigh myself consistently so I have no values for a relative perspective but I have just noticed my clothes are fitting different and I just feel “bigger”.
In saying all of that , I am in no way,shape,or form mad about that number or upset about that number I saw. Honestly I could care less about the digits on a scale .. I care 100% wholeheartedly about how I FEEL physically and how I FEEL mentally.
I am still consistently going to gym, consistently getting stronger and consistently progressing in my “fitness journey” ... I honestly don’t give a damn about whatever that scale said .. && you shouldn’t either.
❗️One of my favorite things about the gym is that, in a world that constantly fixates women's health around our need to get smaller...the gym is a place where goals are all about building, progressing and increasing. As women, we are constantly overwhelmed with the ideals and message that we are too big. We need do everything and anything to make the numbers on the scale go down. We are told to shrink. To me, that is not health! Making yourself lesser is just not an attitude I find appealing at all🙅🏼♀️
At the gym, my numbers go up, not down. My muscles get bigger. The weights I lift get heavier. The time I can hold a plank gets longer. The number of exercises I can master get more numerous. It's my way out of the “get smaller, thinspiration” mindset. And let’s be real .. it feels AMAZING to get stronger and stronger.
💜I will continue to love my 191 lb body just the way it is and continue to consistently progress and better myself physically, mentally and emotionally. 💜
