This Fitness Blogger Proves Weight Is Just A Number

How many times have you relied on your scale to measure your weight? Well, rely no more, because this woman advises you to ditch that scale for good! Fitness blogger Kelsey Wells posted a picture to Instagram last summer only to encourage people to see the difference in weight. She posted three pictures following a chronological order. One of them is of her weighing 122 pounds beside a photo of that time weighing 140 pounds, but feeling stronger and more muscular than ever. She proved that weight is only a number and that no one should obsess with it. Instead, people should focus on their healthy lifestyle and happiness with their own body.

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

Doesn’t she look amazing on the third photo? Kelsey claims she feels as great as she looks. In the Instagram post, she writes, “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.”

This is her story. Two months after giving birth to her son, she started Kayla Itsines’ fitness program. Her goal was to reach 122 pounds and fit into her smallest pair of skinny jeans. And she did reach the weight. However, after that, she went on to gain 18 more pounds – of muscle!

Here is an example of Kayla’s workout.

She explains in the caption: “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.”

Her final point is that women should know that the scale number means nothing when you are seriously trying to lead a healthier lifestyle.

Here’s how another woman transformed her body and fell in love with the gym.
