Weight. Big or small, it’s such a powerful aspect of our lives. It’s a number under our toes that can either make us unhappy or motivate us. Do we ever look at ourselves and just say, “wow, I FEEL good or crappy” for that matter and not compare ourselves to a number. -
This collage is a visual representation that weight is only a number! It doesn’t define you! You define YOU! -
At my lowest weight, 114# stage weight, I FELT awful. I was hungry, irritable, had signs of amenorrhea and minimal social life and the list goes on.
This is NOT SUSTAINABLE. Humans are not supposed to wake up tired. Not have irregular hormones, not have a social life and not walk around at stage weight. -
ENJOY YOUR LIFE!!! -
Don’t get me wrong, I love this sport and challenging yourself is important. I walked that damn stage like I won the overall title because I was proud of my package and what I personally accomplished. No matter how the tables turned that night, 1st or last, there is always room for self-improvement at any level.
It’s important to choose a sustainable lifestyle for you and only you. What crazy ass diet works for “skinny Susan” might not work for you. Make small changes. Overtime they make a big difference & keep progressing. -
If YOU want to change your aesthetics; YOU have to start putting yourself first and stop making excuses. If it matters to you, you’ll find the time. But first!!!!! Change your mindset. You CAN do anything if you believe in the process and most importantly, yourself. It takes time. Don’t give up.
So for me; no matter what weight lies ahead, self-love will always be the most important part of my life and this sport. I’m not perfect but progress is most certainly achievable.
