I’m not going to lie. I’ll admit that I used to always say “I wish I was skinny.” Skinny as is thin arms and a flat stomach. Skinny to me was healthy and attractive. After making a fitness account on Instagram I discovered all these beautiful ladies who were in shape and lean. They have all these curves but no body fat. I always was against lifting weights in fear I’d look like those body builder women in magazines. My boyfriend workouts and always tried to get me to but I refused. But all these women lift weights and have these incredible bodies and I’m over here doing cardio only, wondering why I still have all this body fat. Even when I was skinny, I was skinny fat. I looked small but still had body fat and no muscle.
I decided to give weights a try. I bought my first 6 week weight training program at http://www.gosupersisters.com and my opinion changed completely. Lifting weights doesn’t have to be for building a ton of muscle. It tones your body. The more muscle you have, the more fat you burn. I’ve learned that being lean and fit is what’s healthy and attractive. Everyone is beautiful in their own ways but to me health is important and attractive.
Since I’ve started lifting weights I feel so much better. I haven’t put on a ton of muscle but I’m stronger and leaner than I was before. The media uses so many thin women to sell everything. I believed that’s what I should look like. I wish they would use fit women. Women who don’t cut calories but work hard and sweat to earn their bodies. While weight lifting isn’t for everyone, I’m glad I discovered it and changed my opinion and my lifestyle. Eating healthy foods, lifting weights and running has done my body so much good!
