Kelsey Wells was one of the top fitness bloggers at #screwthescale. However, she is not over pressure to be an "ideal weight" – especially as a personal trainer.
"Being sick and weighing on different people The appointments of doctors in the past week brought back all sorts of memories, and I felt the need to talk about them again," she recently wrote on Instagram. "This week I was burdened 144, 138, and 141 pounds. I'm 5'6.5 "tall, and before I started my fitness journey, I believed that my 'target weight & # 39; (referring to nothing?) should be 1
Sharing drastic weight loss stories with so many influencers and celebrities Creating social media transformation photos makes it hard not to focus on losing weight, but if you do Setting unrealistic expectations and then failing to meet them can have a significant negative impact on your body image. "I weighed myself every day and allowed the number that appeared there not only to set my mood, but also to engage in certain behaviors and even my own internal dialogue Wells wrote, "I felt AMAZING, but when I woke up and this number did not reflect what I had thought, as if I were losing all confidence.

I do not weigh myself (#screwthescale !!), but got sick and cumbersome at various medical appointments last week, bringing back all sorts of memories and I felt the need to talk about it again, this week I had 144, 138 and 141 pounds 5 & 6; 6.5 inches tall, and before I started my fitness journey, I believed that my "target weight" (based on nothing?) Should be 120 pounds. I also weighed myself every day and would allow the number Dictating not only my mood, but also certain behaviors and even my own internal dialogue I felt AMAZING, but when I woke up and this number did not reflect what I thought, so it should be, just like that as w I would lose all confidence. I was mistaken in believing that no progress was made, and worst of all, I looked at my body negatively. THAT IS NOT OK. If you are currently up to it, please listen. The balance alone can NOT measure your health. Do not lose the fact that your weight can fluctuate +/- 5 pounds in a SAME day due to a number of things, and that your muscle mass is more than fat per volume, and I literally weigh the SAME AMOUNT right now, though When I started my journey after birth, even though my body composition has completely changed – usually and as far as your fitness journey goes, the scale shows you nothing more than your relationship to gravity on this planet. THAT'S IT. They are so much more than a number on a clothing label or a scale – and you can not afford to impact those things on your self-esteem. I know it's hard. I understand that letting go of these things is easier said than done, but this is a job that you MUST do. Focus on pure positivity. Focus on your HEALTH. If you are a measurer, try to measure the number of pushups you can do, or the cups of water you drink, or positive acknowledgments that you give yourself or even better. Try to measure everything that your amazing body automatically does to you every day. # kelseywellspwr www.kelseywells.com/app[19659009*AboutKELSEYWELLS(@kelseywells)am
shared post If you have problems letting go Follow Wells advice: " Libra alone can not measure your health, do not lose sight of the fact that your weight may fluctuate +/- five pounds in the same day due to a number of things, and that muscle mass weighs more than fat per volume, and I literally weigh the SAME AMOUNT NOW compared to what I did when I started my journey after birth, even though my body composition has completely changed – typically and until you go on a fitness trip, the Libra tells you nothing and yours Relationship to gravity on this planet. "
She urged the followers to remember that your weight or the size of your clothes will not affect your self-esteem l should have. "I know it's tough," she wrote. "I understand that letting go of these things is easier than said, but this is a job you MUST do, focus on pure positivity, focus on your HEALTH."

If you're someone who needs to quantify his health, Wells suggests measuring something else. (Hellooo, not to scale victories!) "Try to measure the number of pushups you can do or the cups of water you drink or the positive affirmations you give yourself," she wrote. "Or better yet, try to measure what your great body automatically does to you every day." (See also: Kelsey Wells really does not think it's too hard for himself.)
Wells's article reminds us that a fitter body can sometimes increase weight by a few kilometers (muscle is, after all, denser than fat). So, if you worked on the force and found that the scale is moving up, do not sweat it. Decide to be proud of your work and love your form.
