Die Fitnessbloggerin Kelsey Wells zeigt mit einer Fotostrecke auf My Sweat Life, dass es absolut sinnlos ist, sich Gedanken über sein Gewicht zu machen, weil die liebe Waage mal wieder “zu viel” anzeigt. Der Post hat mittlerweile bereits über 300.000 Menschen erreicht.

Die 1,70m große Mutter wog vor ihrer Schwangerschaft 59 Kilo, nachdem sie ihren süßen Sohn zur Welt gebracht hat, waren es 66 Kilo. Die sportliche Neu-Mama wollte ihren Bikini-Body zurück und setzte sich das Ziel, wieder auf ca. 55 Kilo zu kommen.

This kid!👆🏼☺️ He is currently OBSESSED with playing “blast off” (aka having us throw him up in the air) — which I love!😍 However he’s not exactly the tiniest of two-year-olds so let’s just say my arms were sore before I even began #BBG #arms today.😂😁 || YOU GUYS I CANNOT EVEN RN.😭❤️❤️ Let me tell you something. Yesterday afternoon Ry was like “hey! Check it out! Elite daily wrote an article about your last post!! I was like WHAA!!? And we thought that was pretty cool cause I mean I never imagined someone would write a news article about one of my posts?🙈 Anyway, then I read it and by the end I actually got emotional. Because it was so nice. And mostly because it made me SO FREAKING HAPPY that someone else was helping me spread a message that I feel so, so passionate about. THEN I come out of Costco today to a bunch of texts from @caseylynnhoward with links to more articles!? 😱🙈😭❤️ I AM SERIOUSLY BLOWN AWAY YOU GUYS!! ESP to each of you who have written saying it was what you needed to hear, and to those of you who have helped spread the #screwthescale mantra, my heart could burst.🤗❤️ I just feel so thankful. || Last but not least HI!👋🏼 I’m Kelsey. I write really long captions cause I really don’t know how to not. I may be a lot of things but I’m always honest and I’m always myself — I have anxiety and if I start filtering myself or worrying what people think it stresses me out!😂 I am obsessed with my boys and fitness and emojis and BBG CAUSE ITS THE BEST. And, of course, food. I think we should workout because our bodies are AMAZING and deserve to be taken care of. OKLOVEYOUBYE!🤗🤗🤗 . . . . . #mysweatlife #sweat #bbgbabes #bbgmums #bbgmoms #bbgcommunity #fit #fitmom #fitness #fitspo #fitgirls #fitfam #fitness #workout #happy #healthy

Muskeln sind schwerer als Fett

Nach zwei Jahren intensivem Training wiegt Kelsey nun 64 Kilo. Am Gewicht hat sich also nicht viel geändert, an der Figur allerdings schon. So hat die Amerikanerin einfach an Fett ab- und an Muskeln zugenommen. Unter ihr Foto schreibt sie: Ich war nie gesünder als heute. Und ich habe mich noch nie zuvor in meiner Haut so wohl gefühlt. Laut einem Bericht des Business Insider soll Kelsey sogar zwei Hosengrößen nach oben gewandert sein, da ihre Oberschenkel nun viel muskulöser seien, als zuvor.

SCREW THE SCALE || I figured it was time for a friendly, yet firm reminder.🤗 YOU GUYS. PLEASEEEEEE STOP GETTING HUNG UP ON THE NUMBER ON THE STUPUD SCALE! PLEASE STOP THINKING YOUR WEIGHT EQUALS YOUR PROGRESS AND FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING PLEASE STOP LETTING YOR WEIGHT HAVE ANY AFFECT WHATSOEVER ON YOUR SELF ESTEEM, like I used to. To any of you who are where I once was, please listen to me. I am 5′ 7″ and weigh 140 lbs. When I first started #bbg I was 8 weeks post partum and 145 lbs. I weighed 130 before getting pregnant, so based on nothing besides my own warped perception, I decided my “goal weight” should be 122 and to fit into my skinniest jeans. Well after a few months of BBG and breastfeeding, I HIT IT and I fit into those size 0 jeans. Well guess what? I HAVE GAINED 18 POUNDS SINCE THEN. EIGHT FREAKING TEEN. Also, I have gone up two pant sizes and as a matter of fact I ripped those skinny jeans wide open just the other week trying to pull them up over my knees.😂 My point?? According to my old self and flawed standards, I would be failing miserably. THANK GOODNESS I finally learned to start measuring my progress by things that matter — strength, ability, endurance, health, and HAPPINESS. Take progress photos and videos. Record how many push-ups you can do, ect. And if you can, your BFP — there is only a 5 lb difference between my starting and current weight, but my body composition has changed COMPLETELY. I have never had more muscle and less body fat than I do now. I have never been healthier than I am now. I have never been more comfortable in my own skin than I am now. And if I didn’t say #screwthescale long ago, I would have gave up on my journey. So to the little teeny tiny voice in the back of my head that still said “😳wtf is this- not 140!?😭😩” last week when I stepped on the scale, I say SCREW. YOU. And I think you should probably say the same to your scale too. #byefelicia 👋🏼🚫⚖ . . #bbgprogress #transformationtuesday #fit #fitness #workout #fitmom #fitchick #fitfam #fitnesstransformation #beforeandafter #sweat #mysweatlife #girlswithmuscle #girlgains #strongnotskinny

Fazit: Strong ist das neue Skinny

Was auf der Waage steht, ist unwichtig. Gesund und fit auszusehen und sich wohl zu fühlen sollte das Ziel sein, wenn man überlegt seinen Körper zu verändern. Ihren atemberaubenden Body hat die Fitnessbloggerin übrigens dem “Bikini Body Guide” von Kayla Itsines zu verdanken.
