Since I posted about not being “lean” yesterday, I figured I’d post a transformation picture to show where I started. (Sorry this is literally the only pic I have from 2014 in a bathing suit lol) I haven’t always had a butt and back muscles. I was a small little string bean.
I joined a gym in 2014 and haven’t looked back since. As cheesy as it sounds, lifting has changed my life in so many ways. I’ve found myself in it. I found something I can stick to and something I have a passion for. I tried every sport/activity known to man when I was younger, and couldn’t stick with anything bc I didn’t really like them. But THIS, this is something I love.
I used to worry about what people would think of me and if they would judge me. And trust me, they did. It bothered me at first but I just blew it off because their opinions don’t matter. People will always judge you and critique you. Fuck them. Do what makes you happy🤷🏽♀️
I have made so many amazing friendships because of my passion for fitness. Hell, I even met my boyfriend due to the fact we live in the same area and both love the gym. @marioalafata I love youuuuuu💙
So yeah, fitness isn’t just a “trend” or a “fad” to me. It has completely changed my life for the better🤗
