#repost // “Okay, so I’ve been overweight since my parents split up when I was 9ish. The moment I realized others saw me that way was 5th grade. I transferred to a new school (Navy kid), walked into my new class and one of the boys blew out his cheeks and made a swooping round big belly gesture with his hands *ouch*. Even family members would mention my weight (“if you lost a few pounds, you’d be so much prettier”). Man, that shit messes with your head when you’re a kid!! ⁠
30+ years later, I am an AFAA Certified Group Fitness Instructor and a #poundpro , I have amazing friends who don’t judge my looks and who lift me up, and I’m married to the most wonderful man who says I’m his dream girl and I 100% believe him. ⁠
Meanwhile, I continue to struggle with low self-esteem; I pass on opportunities/activities if I think it may draw attention to my size or may make me more uncomfortable than I’m willing to risk; I worry about what others think about or will say about my body; and I compare myself to other bodies ALL. THE. TIME…it’s cliche to say, but the struggle is real. ⁠
Tuesday night before Pound, @crunchytulip snapped this picture of me. I think she was just trying to get a shot of me prepping before class started. Afterwards, she showed it to me and all I could think was “hey girl heyyy! Legs and booty are looking pretty damn good!” It sounds silly, I know, but I’m generally not complimentary about my lower half. So, to finally see strong, powerful legs instead of being embarrassed about their size or the amount of cellulite…I had some kind of “hell yeah!” moment and I guess I just needed to share! 🤷🏻‍♀️🙌🏼🤣🍑🍑🍑⁠
I don’t think I realized how much @poundfit has improved my self-confidence, my mentality - just how I feel about and think about myself, in general. My initial reason for becoming an instructor was really just to have access to the tracks and choreography because it’s the one workout that I’ve consistently enjoyed. It’s clearly become so much more to me…and for that I’m forever grateful.”
