From my limited experience of competition, it’s amazing me how many people have a strong opinion on something that doesn’t affect them. I can’t say it bothers me but it does intrigue me. My husband is, thankfully, extremely supportive of me and my process. Well the other day I sent him a funny text with a pic of my stomach flexing. He showed it to a friend and, not for the first time (different people but same reaction, he has had several friends say this about me and tells them he thinks it’s sexy so 🖕🏼) this friend said “that’s gross”. Do I care he thinks it’s gross to him, not in the slightest. I don’t think people understand competition. That’s okay. You’re entitled to your opinion. During my first season I heard everything from “you’re getting too big, too muscular”, to “you’re too thin, you’re taking this too far”. Typically speaking from my experience these comments are coming from people who have little to no regular fitness in their life. I understand fitness isn’t a hobby or passion to everyone. I understand that getting into competition is extreme. I thrive on pushing myself. Finding new strength and endurance. Pushing myself to achieve what I once thought I was never capable. These comments don’t upset me or make me question myself but they do make me wonder why people think it is acceptable. I could never imagine saying negative comments about anyone’s body, obese to “too” thin. It’s not my business. I am so thankful for those who do support and do understand but I won’t care if I’m “too muscular “ because I LOVE MUSCLES. Lol. They show me they hours of work I’ve put in.
