45lb difference, same outfit. How?
I posted about this on my story over the weekend but it’s so important that I wanted to talk about it more.
The left was the day after my last bodybuilding competition, at 140lbs. The right is this past weekend, at 185lbs 🤯.
Yes this is an extreme example, but it proves the point that THE SCALE IS IRRELEVANT. How you look and how you feel is the best indicator of progress. In my case, this is a reverse transformation of weight gain for the better. I am way stronger, healthier and HAPPIER now than 45lbs ago.
It took me a LONG time to get to a mental space where I’m happy with my body at a heavier weight, and it takes WORK to fight the negative thoughts. There were times throughout the process that I was a nightmare to be around. I wasn’t happy with myself, so I couldn’t be happy about anything else.
Long story short - Your health and happiness are more important than anything else, always.
