Flashback To The Reality Check

I remember this moment so vividly now looking back. It was just over 3 years ago now when I won my IFBB Pro card which was an absolute dream come true. Then soon after my whole world came crumbling down around me and as a consequence, i started putting on weight rapidly. I shut off from the world for months and started hearing rumours about why i had put on the weight that i had. Honestly so many things kept coming back to me from "she is on steroids, to "she looks pregnant". I was fighting a battle that no one had any idea about yet everyone was very quick to judge and make assumptions about.

TO SCALE OR NOT TO SCALE

Scales

That love-hate relationship we all have or had at some point with our set of bathroom scales. Sometimes we hop on them, and we are excited by the number that we see, and sometimes we step on them and want to throw them out of the window straight after. At some point in time, we have all let ourselves become dictated by a number, but I am here to let you know that it's time to tell the scales to move over and feel fabulous regardless of what they say.

The ruling

For so long I let myself become dictated by a number. I would hop on the scales most days and if the number on there was not what I had hoped for then this would change my entire mood for the whole remainder of the day. I know that so many of you can relate to this feeling because we all do it or have done it at some point. When the number is not what we want, we start to torture ourselves. I used to eat even less for the day or spend extra hours in the gym. I would start questioning what I had done wrong when I thought I was doing absolutely everything possible to control my weight. I would weight myself daily, and the number would change my whole mood for the day, and I would worry about it so much if it was not budging. It was that feeling of all my hard work was not paying off, and some of you at this point would even just throw in the towel and give up. I have at times in the past where when the number was not moving, I would be like 'what the hell?' and just binge on food because, well, what's the point? This is all too common amongst many women these days, so we all need to take steps to get out of this vicious cycle.
