Lo develó la diosa del fitness: el peso engaña

Muchas personas, especialmente mujeres, anhelan profundamente perder kilos. Y si bien es lo ideal para quienes tienen sobrepeso, debemos tener en cuenta que el peso no lo es todo y que varias veces los números nos “engañan”.

Así lo demostró la bloguera fitness estadounidense Kelsey Wells, quien publicó una imagen en Instagram dividida en tres capturas: En la primera con 65.7 kilos, en la segunda con 55.3 y en la tercera con 63.5 ¿Qué ocurrió aquí?
En la primera instantánea Kelsey muestra su estado inicial cuando se propuso bajar de peso, luego cuando consiguió perder más de 10 kilos y la última su estado actual tras haber alcanzado una buena tonificación muscular.
“Me di cuenta que era el momento para un amistoso, pero firme recordatorio”, escribió. “Por favor, dejen de buscar tener un número determinado en la estúpida pesa. Por favor, dejen de pensar que su peso es igual a su progreso y por el amor de todos, dejen de permitir que su peso tenga un efecto sobre su autoestima, como yo solía hacerlo”, sentenció.
De hecho, Kelsey pesa sólo 2 kilos menos que cuando comenzó su proceso para estar en forma 8 semanas después de dar a luz.
“Yo pesaba 58 kilos antes de quedar embarazada, por lo que basaba mi supuesto sobrepeso en nada más que mi propia percepción deformada y decidí que mi peso ideal debía ser de 55 kilos y encajar en mis skinny Jeans“, reveló la joven madre.
Aunque llegó a su meta de peso después de unos pocos meses, desde entonces ha ganado 8 kilos y subió 2 tallas de ropa, pero se siente mucho mejor.
“Gracias a Dios que finalmente aprendí a empezar a medir mi progreso por mi fuerza, capacidad, resistencia, salud y felicidad. Nunca he tenido más músculo y menos grasa corporal que ahora. Nunca he estado más saludable de lo que estoy ahora"

8 WKS POST-BABY to 84 WKS OF BBG || Of the million things running through my mind that I want to share with you guys about my #bbgprogress and what I have learned since beginning @kayla_itsines program, most important is first and foremost that I am HEALTHIER and HAPPIER than I ever have been. I am kinder to myself. I am confident in myself. Not just in my ability to jump on a box or do commandos, but in WHO I AM. As a wife, mother, sister, daughter, aunt, friend and in being unapologetically my imperfect SELF. Through #BBG I found my passion for fitness and healthy living and it is truly a journey of growing mentally and emotionally as well as physically. I AM BETTER THAN NO ONE. No one is better than anyone. We are each 100% one-of-a-kind and irreplaceable. We each have our own struggles, strengths, and stories. And we EACH deserve to be happy, healthy, and BELIEVE IN OURSELVES. || I'm so thankful for my (continuing) #bbgtransformation and all that has come along with striving to live a healthier lifestyle. And you guys!!! As cheesy as it sounds, it is LITERALLY SO TRUE so imma say it anyway -- if I can do it, SO CAN YOU. || ������ . . . . . #mysweatlife #getoutandsweat #happy #healthy #fitmom #sweat #sweatwithkayla #fit #fitness #fitchick #fitnesstransformation #beforeandafter #fitfam #workout #girlswithmuscle #girlgains #bbgfam #bbglife #bbgmums #bbgmoms #bbgbabes

SCREW THE SCALE || I figured it was time for a friendly, yet firm reminder.�� YOU GUYS. PLEASEEEEEE STOP GETTING HUNG UP ON THE NUMBER ON THE STUPUD SCALE! PLEASE STOP THINKING YOUR WEIGHT EQUALS YOUR PROGRESS AND FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING PLEASE STOP LETTING YOR WEIGHT HAVE ANY AFFECT WHATSOEVER ON YOUR SELF ESTEEM, like I used to. To any of you who are where I once was, please listen to me. I am 5' 7" and weigh 140 lbs. When I first started #bbg I was 8 weeks post partum and 145 lbs. I weighed 130 before getting pregnant, so based on nothing besides my own warped perception, I decided my "goal weight" should be 122 and to fit into my skinniest jeans. Well after a few months of BBG and breastfeeding, I HIT IT and I fit into those size 0 jeans. Well guess what? I HAVE GAINED 18 POUNDS SINCE THEN. EIGHT FREAKING TEEN. Also, I have gone up two pant sizes and as a matter of fact I ripped those skinny jeans wide open just the other week trying to pull them up over my knees.�� My point?? According to my old self and flawed standards, I would be failing miserably. THANK GOODNESS I finally learned to start measuring my progress by things that matter -- strength, ability, endurance, health, and HAPPINESS. Take progress photos and videos. Record how many push-ups you can do, ect. And if you can, your BFP -- there is only a 5 lb difference between my starting and current weight, but my body composition has changed COMPLETELY. I have never had more muscle and less body fat than I do now. I have never been healthier than I am now. I have never been more comfortable in my own skin than I am now. And if I didn't say #screwthescale long ago, I would have gave up on my journey. So to the little teeny tiny voice in the back of my head that still said "��wtf is this- not 140!?����" last week when I stepped on the scale, I say SCREW. YOU. And I think you should probably say the same to your scale too. #byefelicia ������⚖ . . #bbgprogress #transformationtuesday #fit #fitness #workout #fitmom #fitchick #fitfam #fitnesstransformation #beforeandafter #sweat #mysweatlife #girlswithmuscle #girlgains #strongnotskinny
