Wie wil afvallen of simpelweg iets beter in haar vel wil zitten, heeft vaak een streefgewicht in gedachten. En dat terwijl er heel wat artikels op het internet rondzweven van vrouwen die er pakken strakker uitzagen op hun na-foto, terwijl ze eigenlijk meer wogen. Je gelooft ons niet? Kijk dan maar naar onderstaande getuigenissen.
Moraal van dit socialmediaverhaal? Zowat alle vrouwen vertellen in het bijschrift veel gelukkiger te zijn, ook al zijn ze soms geen grammetje afgevallen. Ze lieten hun weegschaal links liggen en focusten zich eerst en vooral op een gezonde levensstijl.

??DISCIPLINE ? DETERMINATION ?? . . They say it takes 21 days to create a habit. It’s that habit of discipline and the determination of wanting to create a healthier life for myself that has been the backbone of my training the last two years. These past 7 weeks since starting the 12 week challenge I have been so proud of the discipline I have show when it comes to my workouts. Some days have been crazy busy and I’ve only had 45 minutes free and instead of saying I just don’t have time, I’ve got to the gym and smashed out a workout. I have not missed one single workout no matter how busy or crazy my day is and that all comes back to my determination + discipline ???? I look forward to training. Having recently been through an injury where I couldn’t train properly for months has made me appreciate what our bodies are capable of doing in full health. ? I saw that number go up again on the scale the other day but this just proves that we should all shout a massive F U to those numbers because the number on the scale don’t mean shit!!! #screwthescale . . . #bbg #bbgcommunity #bbgfam #bbgprogress #PWR #kelseywells #sweat #pwrbykelsey #100strong #bbgbabes #bbggirls #bbgover30 #bikinibodyguide #bikinibody #bbgstronger #bbgfamily #sweatwithkayla #kaylasarmy #kaylaitsines #fit #fitfam #fitspo #fitness #fitchick #fitties #thekaylamovement #strongnotskinny #anytimefitness

for anyone fretting over “holiday weight” this is your reminder to screw the f’ing scale! ???? that number means nothing ?????? what’s important is how you FEEL, if you’re being kind to your body (and mind), if you’re nourishing yourself with proper nutrients and letting your body sweat ?? can you check any of those boxes? GREAT! The rest will follow ?? here’s where I have to plug: for specifics on what I’ve done, scroll back in time or visit my blog when it launches very soon!

Progress photos are so frustrating. Putting these together, I know exactly why I don't post one every transformation Tuesday. And why on earth did I choose those pants for my first picture? ?? Anyways, it's a comparison of over a year. This transformation could be done within 3 months, I mean I've done it, if you scroll down my feed. But the real trick is to hold your shape. If it isn't your job, it's almost impossible to stay ripped 12 months a year. At least it's for me. But I'm happy with what I see in the mirror now, so I guess, who cares ;) #selflove #screwthescale

Let me tell you about my Food/diet/nutrition/healthy eating... whatever you want to call it. Most of you already know that I workout most days .. and that I do so at home. But I get lots of questions about how I eat because it's not something I talk about or photograph that often. . I know It's not what you want to hear but the reason I don't really talk about it .. is because there's nothing really to tell. I don't follow a plan, I don't count anything (not macros not calories) I don't try to cut out food groups or stop eating carbs after 5pm.. I dont do intermittent fasting or flexible dieting or even clean eating (anymore, I did for a while in the beginning) ... I still eat cake more days than not... I still drink prosecco I still can't seem to resist stealing snacks from the kids junk food cupboard. I still love a takeaway curry... eat pizza, burger and fries and love to eat sweets... The difference between the two pictures is NOT what those foods do to my body it's what those foods do to my head. 2 years ago eating sweets and takeaway and junk all day would send me into a downward spiral of feeling bad about myself. All that yummy food would actually fuel my EXCUSES to quit exercise, to not bother balancing the treats out with nutritious alternatives. Now these same foods (and my passion for them) fuel my AMBITION to condition my body. I know the difference between eating well and eating poorly... And if a day happens where I binge eat cake and a tub of butter .. I leave it at just that ... a day that happened. It doesn't de-rail my goals like it used to ... I don't see it as a reason to give up ... but a reason to continue ... I don't workout out of guilt - I workout to be GUILT FREE. Healthy bodies start with healthy minds. So balance the food books like the intelligent rational human being your are... eat what you love every now and then And what you NEED more often than not... and on those days when it all goes horribly wrong.. as it inevitably will... just remove your face from the tub of butter... replace the lid and continue on exactly as you were.. motivated, goal orientated and #healthyAF . Love Nikki xx #transformationtuesday

SCREW THE SCALES ???????????? proof that just because you weigh more doesn’t mean you’ve got fatter (and also that I need a tan) September ? Now I realise the pose isn’t exactly the same ?????? I’ve been training more and I haven’t been eating any more than usual so where is this weight coming from? MUSCLE! ???????? Muscle weighs more than fat! So don’t be discouraged by the number on the scales ???? There are plenty of other ways to track progress ???? I generally don’t weigh myself I opt for tracking my progress through photos and how I feel in myself instead ?????? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . —————————————————————————————— #transformationtuesday #screwthescales #gainingweightiscool #muscle #musclegain #abs #girlswithabs #weightgain #fitfam #fitfamuk #instafit #fitstagram #gymshark #gymsharkwomen #seamless #flex #myproteinwomen #myprotein #myproteinuk

Heavier, healthier and PROUD ??. The moment I stopped focusing on my weight was the moment I took the first step towards really transforming the way I looked and felt about myself. I am proud because I no longer define my worth by my weight. I am proud because I have muscles and I feel strong. I want you to be able to make yourself proud too. If you are anything like I was and you obsess over your weight. Do yourself a favour; stop weighing yourself and start focusing on what steps you can take to make you feel good about YOU. There’s no better time than now ?? xo #transformationtuesday #strongisthenewskinny #screwthescales

D I T C H T H E S C A L E ???? I remember vividly when this before photo was taken, and I was beating myself up for not being “skinny“. I had failed again to get in shape for an upcoming vacation. I was ashamed and disappointed in myself for always failing and covered it up with my old stand by, alcohol! ?????? Moving away from my old mindset of losing weight and being skinny to my new mindset to being healthy and fit has been the one thing that has helped keep me moving forward. I’m not competing with anyone else, no longer trying to look like anyone else. I want to be my best self, for myself and my body. ???? Instead of constantly focusing on the scale, I’m more focused on my physical strength and mental health. It’s so important to focus on how you feel about yourself as you workout, eat right, or whatever your goals may be instead of a number or pant size. It’s all about a lifestyle where you don’t beat yourself up but instead love yourself first!! ??

Bluntness headed your way this AM - . The scale doesn’t mean ??! . . ??Comment below a non-scale victory that you’ve achieved!???????? . Where did the scale come into your life? . Let me tell you about when it came into mine?? . 1 - the doctors office! You would get there and after watching your mother want to strip everything off her body (earrings, shoes, sweater, hair tie etc.) and then heard her say “oh well I had 2 cups of coffee this morning so I’m full....”! You got the idea that you wanted that number to be as little as possible! So, when I stepped on the scale I immediately did the same thing! THEN the doctor would say “Oh good! That is a great weight! You’re doing great!” I was awarded nice words with a smaller number! They didn’t take into account the muscle I had on my legs from soccer, or the habits that created my number! It seemed like they simply wanted a certain number! And I felt good when they were proud of me! . It continued on to my schooling when I learned about BIA - I was “overweight” according to them. But the woman next to me, who had more body fat on her - was a healthy “weight”??! So what did I do - I skipped lunch and went for a run, while she got to go enjoy fake, processed, cafe food and be “healthy”! . The scale will always be there - it will always be a tool for us to measure with! But listen here - it measures how much gravitational pull something or someone has towards the earth! It does not measure your success, your happiness, or your worth! Slide through to find some other ways you can enjoy victories along your transformation process! My favorite victories are #nsv ??! . Don’t let the scale define your happiness - YOU GET TO DEFINE IT! It is within you - it’s not the weight that shows up on the scale!??????? . #flourishyourmega #nonscalevictory #nonscalevictories #truehappiness #npc #transformation #weightlosstransformation #noweightloss #noproblem #fatloss #fatlossjourney #hipdips #cellulite #selflove #selfcare #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bopo #innertransformation
