“I am 50kgs.”
“I am 5’4”
“I’m a size 4.”
For the longest time, we’ve been defining ourselves purely based on our appearance. What size we are, how much we weigh, how tall we are. Appearance is one of the most quickly judged things, and in today’s world, weight and size is prioritised.
As a fitness blogger, i’ve gotten used to people defining themselves based on things that are important to society. But what about how strong you are? How compassionate you are? How ambitious you are? Why do these characteristics get hidden in the background?
A person is not his/her weight, height, proportions or body type. I don’t give a damn what shape or size you are, just be unapologetically you.
Don’t lose who you are as a person in the layers of image consciousness and societal expectations.
Now that we’ve cleared that up, the reverse diet is going smoothly. Extra carbs make me feel stronger with my lifts, and i’m still maintaining the same physique. Except I’m trying to go from 50kg to 52kg to help me tackle the 65kg dead lift (eventually). Till then, i’m going to keep inhaling bowls of pasta and tightening my grip on the barbell.
