I recently saw an article that said people who post "gym selfies" are missing something, that they require attention and praise to fill a void inside themselves.
Yes, I have a fitness Instagram, and share my journey, updates and gym selfies publicly, but it is about so much more than likes and follows. I do this for the accountability, for the community, to feel like I'm part of something more than "just" working out. I do this for the likeminded people, and friends I've made. I do this to follow along with those who inspire me, and to share my journey in hopes of inspiring others. I do this so I can take what I've learned and use it to help someone else. I do it for the women who write to me about their struggles, and tell me that my transformation has given them hope for themselves ♥️
I've met so many beautiful, amazing, genuine souls that have played a part in changing me forever. And how many of us may not have kept it up this long, or pushed this hard if it weren't for all those gym selfies? 💕
