Can you be overweight AND fit?
Does being thin even matter if you’re unhealthy?
When you use the term “skinny fat” are you helping or hurting?
Is it wrong to care about how you fit into your skinny jeans?
We talk about a lot of things in the gym beside how to do a proper squat and what we ate for breakfast. Lately we’ve been talking about body image and what fitness really means. Which means the questions above have come up more than once.
Here is the one thing I know for sure. The one thing that I wish women knew about fitness.
I don’t weigh my clients because it sets to much focus on outward appearances and goals that are out of their control. I don’t discourage them from wanting to look good in their favorite dress, I just know that feeling comes from inside. Until you are healthy, feel strong AND love your body for what it is there is NO number that will make you happy.
Don’t judge yourself or others based on what we look like. If you’re healthy enough to do the things you want to do, if you’re comfortable in your skin and live life with joy that is all that matters. If rocking a bikini in Waikiki is a by-product of all that then all the better. Enjoy your journey and don’t let anyone else’s baggage hold you back.
Now…..what assumptions are you going to let go of today?
How are you going to show your support for someone else’s journey?
