🍑⁉️lil swipeeey b***y transformation ⁉️🍑
okay so i was genuinely in shock when i came across this photo of me (and others) on an old phone 😭
there wasn't anything wrong with my body then at all. the only thing that was wrong was how i felt. i didn't feel comfortable in my own skin. i never felt good enough. 🤦🏽♀️
i used to spend hours on cardio machines. i used to force myself to go on regular runs, which i hated. i used to think about how many calories i was burning and in my head i would relate this directly to the food i was eating i.e. if i'd burned 100 calories, i'd let myself off for eating that 100 calorie biscuit. and really i think this is a mindset that is not uncommon for people to experience. 😞
in my head, i wanted to be as small as possible and this mindset was so self destructing.
weightlifting has truly made me the happiest i have ever been in my own body. dedicating myself to becoming stronger and working hard in the gym regularly makes me feel so satisfied and happy! 😋i didn't realise the extent of the physical differences that have come from it until looking back at these old photos.
i don't track calories now, i eat purely intuitively and hardly even think about calories, other than knowing i'm eating a good amount. i'll have regular "treats" (i love a cookie 🤷🏽♀️) without feeling guilty at all. i'll go into each day excited to become a stronger version of myself.
🌟please remember, we all start somewhere!!! 🌈 let yourself be a beginner, don't stress too much and enjoy the process 🌟
it isn't just luck, it isn't just genetics. it's hard work, consistency and dedication. if you want it enough and dedicate yourself to it, you will get there!!
fuel your body well and be dedicated to your training ☺️
would you like me to go more in depth on how to build your bum and what has worked for me? 🍑 please let me know if that would be helpful ☺️💗
