Fit vs Skinny …I let my own pics speak!
since I have been through a lot in my own life and struggled I thought it might be helpful that I let my very own private pics speak to let people understand how much of a benefit a fit body vs a skinny body is.
My before and after pictures are very different towards the ones of others as most of the people show pics of them being bigger to them getting smaller.
I will do it the OTHER WAY AROUND!
Not only this> I will show what it actually means to put on a lot of ACTIVE muscle mass and lose body fat.
To not make anyone confused:
I will show the difference in between me as a starving anorectic person and me as an incredibly fit and healthy person. In between those pics are 14 years of difference…
Okay, let me start:
Be aware that I’m 180cm (5’11) and my past weight of the old pics is 47kg (103 lbs) and my weight now is 57kg (=123lbs)…so in between those pics are 10kg (22lbs) of weight difference.
This is me 18 years old with 47kg (upper body tiny and bony, legs look healthy…down to the pear shape which was even visible at only 47kg!!!)>
This is me 32 years old with 57kg (bulked up 10kg of muscle mass at the right places)>
Those are my shoulders when I was 18 years old with 47kg>
Those are my shoulders now>
My legs then:
….but the best part yet to come:
This was my bum when I was 18 and had 47kg…flat, straight through the leg, flabby, saggy and I had a reason why I only showed it from the side ;)>
…and this is my bum now …32 years old, 57kg>
So…have you noticed anything?
You are asking yourself how the world I can possible have 10kg more on my new pics?
Yes…well…it’s all muscles! I have gained a lot of muscles and since they are much more dense then fat I just got more and more toned, fitter and shaped. If I would have put on 10kg of fat I would look different…this is for sure!
My measurements are very different now…when I was starving I had a very tiny upper body compared to my lower body and now it’s much more balanced.
When I was young I tried to starve myself to skinny legs but as you can see: I lost all of my muscles around my upper body. So starving made my situation WORSE!
I can tell you: I had such a horrible life when I was at this starving mode. I was tired, exhausted, depressive, weak, was constantly thinking of food, was constantly thinking of killing myself…I was so so sad!
I wanted to come out of this situation so I forced myself to eat and train. I tell you as an anorectic person it was AWFUL to see that my weight went up and up. I constantly had to tell myself that it is not fat but muscles. I wanted to give up so much since gaining weight was so horrible for me.
So I decided to not weigh myself anymore and just train and eat…and I haven’t given up on this since.
To the skinny girls and training girls out there> You must accept that you might not lose weight but gain weight. You must not give up because of this!!! DO NOT GIVE UP! Do not get dictated by the scale. The scale might hinder you to train and eat. The scale might trigger your feelings of being fat.
Just train and eat healthy and have this as a lifestyle. There will be a point when your fit body is your constant body. I haven’t put on or lost any weight for many years now. This fit look is my constant look and I neither want to go up nor down.
Since training and eating clean has become a lifestyle for me I’m not obsessed with losing any weigh or changing anything.
I can say> This is me! This is who I am…living my healthy lifestyle. This is my set point weight. I have finally found myself and don’t need to change a thing.
This feeling is one of the most relaxing and rewarding feelings a woman can have. I have no weight goal when I train…I train for the fitness itself. My goal is not to change anything look wise but to be fitter and better.
Don’t be obsessed by the scale…just don’t look at it…just train and eat clean! Be fit and your new self will come eventually.
I am 10kg heavier now!!! And I don’t regret a thing! Thanks god I have forced myself to ignore the weight gain.
I love being 10kg heavier. I love to be strong and powerful. I love my 10kg!
Take care, train hard and love your new lifestyle,
