Yesterday, as a blogger Instagram fitness US went viral after she shared three photos of her in different weights, to show that the number on the scale does not really say much (if anything) about their health, fitness level, or value as a human being.

Kelsey Wells, author of the blog fitness My Life sweat , published photos of her in 145, 122 and 140 pounds.
An unconventional Before and After photo session
Unlike most before and after the messages, however, the “after” shot shows its almost the same “before” weight. The big difference between them? Muscular.
While she looks beautiful in every photo and every weight, that’s not really the point of any of the photos or this article. I wanted to show how meaning the number on the scale is when it comes to tracking your fitness goals and, more importantly, the determination of their own value.
“You. [Please] stop it getting stuck at the number on the [stupid] scale”, wrote in his post. “Please stop thinking that your weight is equal to its progress and for the love of all that please stop allowing your weight will have no effect at all on their self-esteem.”
She explains that in the first picture I was 8 weeks after delivery, at which time started to itself the goal of reaching 122 pounds, “based on anything besides [her] own distorted perception. ” But once you reach a weight, she gained 18 pounds and moved up two pants sizes.
And I could not be happier.
how it feels matter, which weighs
“According to my old self and flawed standards would be failing miserably. Thank God, I finally learned to start to measure my progress by the things that matter – resistance, capacitance, resistance, health and happiness “, he wrote

despite the number in the increasing scale, feels and looks stronger than it has ever done before .
“I have never been more comfortable in my own skin than I am now. And if I did not say #screwthescale long ago, I would have given up on my trip,” Wells said.
Let this be a lesson to us all that, there are not only more important things in life than the number on a scale, but also that we need to be more tolerant of ourselves. Even if your weight does not fluctuate daily (and even hourly) on the basis of anything and everything from how much we have eaten and the last time we went to the bathroom, for women at least where we are in our cycle, that number does not yet reflect anything of value.
I spent years obsessed with my weight, assessing every morsel of food that came into my mouth, ranging from euphoria to depression in turn based entirely on the number on the scale. It was not until I changed my focus to count calories to feed my body and burning calories for building strength, I have found no measure of peace within myself. I still struggle that mischievous voice inside my head telling me no, I’m not good enough, thin enough, not pretty enough, but now won more battles than I lose. Now I exercise because it makes me feel good – not a punishment for eating something “bad”, which is something amazing that I get to do for myself. It is a way to honor my body. It is a way to feel capable.
So let’s move our bodies because they were designed to move. We will find an activity that brings joy and pleasure to do it alone, does not become something that society has decreed that we should be.
Screw the scale. Let’s live.

Screw SCALE || I thought it was time for a reminder friendly, but firm. YOU. Pleaseeeeee stop getting hung IN THE NUMBER ON THE SCALE STUPUD! PLEASE stop thinking WEIGHT EQUALS YOUR PROGRESS AND FOR THE LOVE OF ALL PLEASE stop letting YOR weight at all have any effect on their self-esteem, as usual. For any of you who are in it once was, please listen to me. I have 5 ‘7 “and weighs 140 pounds. When I started #bbg was 8 weeks after delivery and 145 lbs. I weighed 130 before getting pregnant, so based on anything other than my own distorted perception, decided my “ideal weight” should be 122 and fit into my skinny jeans. Well, after a few months of BBG and lactation, hit me and I fit into the size 0 jeans. Well guess what? I won 18 pounds since then. OCHO TEEN FREAKING. also, I’ve uploaded two pant sizes and as a matter of fact, ripped those tight jeans wide open just the other week trying to pull them over my knees. ¿My point ?? De according to my old self and flawed standards it would be failing miserably Thank God I finally learned to start measuring my progress by the things that matter -.. strength, capacity, endurance, health and happiness Take progress photos and videos Record the number. of pushups you can do, ect and if you can, your BFP -. there is only a difference of 5 pounds between my departure and current weight, but my body composition has changed. I’ve never had more muscle and less body fat than I do now. I’ve never been healthier than I am now. I’ve never been more comfortable in my own skin than I am now. And if I did not say #screwthescale long ago, I would have given up on my trip. So for the little teeny tiny voice in the back of the head that still he said “wtf is this- not 140!?” last week when I stepped on the scale, I say screw. YOU. And I think I should probably say the same scale as well. #byefelicia ⚖. .
