Don’t let the weight define you. Fitness can look like a size 2 or a size 24. Just that in this part of the world nobody acknowledges that the fat girl can be fit, can be strong, can do handstands. No, God forbids the fat person from doing fitness.
This is my journey, my struggles. My little victories, my failures. I am sharing this so that nobody else needs to feel that they can’t do certain things because of how much they weigh. We are in a society that is obsessed with being thin. The idea of fitness is all muscles and abs .
I say you can be fit at any size.
If you don’t like something, change it. Do it for you and not how society wants to berate you to conform or that you are not good enough, not thin enough, not pretty enough. My journey isn’t about losing weight only. My journey is about being strong and being able to enjoy certain sports which I was afraid to do because I didn’t think I could. My journey is about my struggles with weight and my struggles as a fat girl in this skinny world.
Before I started pole or boxing or even giving Arial yoga a shot in the beginning, These were the excuses:
“My core is not strong enough.” “I need to lose some weight first.” “I need to strengthen my upper body before I can do this.”
STOP. You can strengthen your core, you can lose the weight while doing pole, boxing or yoga or whatever you want. At first you don’t succeed, you try again. It is all about practice and putting in those hours.
If you don’t like your body, change it. Do it for you not for others. Same thing as if you don’t like your job, change it, if you don’t like your meal, don’t eat it. I if you want to work out do it because you love it. #fitnessinanysize. .
Since I started yoga and pole, I felt like I needed to see how the bigger girls are doing it because the skinny or fit girls don’t have the same body type of shape as I do and certain poses are a challenge for someone like me. I started to follow a bunch of girls who are plus size yoga Instructors and also pole dance Instructors. That’s the inspiration for this post. #lifebeyondweight #lifebeyonddieting
