Progress photo talk 💁🏼🌿
I was taking progress pictures initially, but I took many different photos and ended up wanting to do one of these flexed/posing vs chilling posts (I know they're done to death but I don't care cause I love doing them 😬). But anyway, when I started working out I kept thinking to myself "I can't wait till I'm on week 100, I'll look so good by then and my progress pictures will be DA BOMB".
But I'm on week 96 now and weirdly felt like I don't have that much difference between now and week 1 (when my body is relaxed), cause I saw other people doing relaxed poses and had massive differences. But then I realised that I actually don't care 🤷🏼♀️ because I shouldn't feel the need to post a photo to get validation on how hard I've worked, it's this weird mindset I got from having a fitness account and getting comments on photos, where people would judge my progress. I got weirdly obsessed with wanting to please everyone and have no one say anything negative. But it doesn't matter how long you've worked out for, or how much muscle you've gained or fat you've lost. It isn't some competition of who can do the most, the quickest. It's about YOU being healthy and happy! So next time you find yourself comparing yourself to anyone's photos, seeing how long they've worked out or how they look compared to you, STOP. You should be so proud of yourself for being you! We all have different lives and bodies, life isn't always linear, sometimes we need to navigate through things first, everyone's journey is unique! Also, as you can see, poses change how you look!!! instagram isn't reality, It's a snap of a second into someone's life. It's just one photo, please don't let that ruin your confidence cause you are absolutely remarkable and there's no point in wanting to be or look like someone else ☺️ love who you are, it's a lot easier than trying to please everyone 🌴☀️
