Bloggaren visar enkelt med en bild varför siffrorna som visas på vågen inte är det viktiga.

Kelsey Wells, 26, är inredningsarkitekt och fitnessbloggare. För någon vecka sedan lade hon ut en bild på Instagram med ett väldigt tydligt, och viktigt, budskap. Människor borde sluta låta ett "fånigt" nummer på vågen bestämma hur man ska känna för sin kropp och in för sig själv.

På Instagram har Wells 300 000 tusen följare och hon driver även bloggen My Sweat Life. Till bilden hon publicerade skrev hon också en viktig text.

På bilden ser man tre olika stadier på hur hennes kropp har sett ut. Ett är för två månader sedan när hon vägde runt 65 kilo, sen en bild på när hon nådde sin drömvikt 55 kilo. Den sista bilden är på hur mycket hon väger i dag.

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

– Det är bara en skillnad på två kilo mellan bilderna på min starkvikt och min nuvarande vikt, men min kroppssammansättning är helt förändrad, skriver hon under bilden och fortsätter:

– Jag har aldrig haft mer muskler än fett som jag har nu. Jag har aldrig varit så här hälsosam.

Wells berättar att hon tidigare låtit sin vikt påverka hennes självkänsla. Efter hennes graviditet gick hon upp ännu mer i vikt och försökte desperat att nå sin "drömvikt" igen, skriver Metro UK.

– Tack och lov att jag äntligen lärt mig att mäta mina framsteg i de saker som verkligen betyder något – styrka, förmåga, uthållighet, hälsa och lycka. Med andra ord, häng inte upp er på siffran på vågen. Sluta låta en liten siffra påverka din självkänsla.

Today>>> A little family fun in the sun is good for the soul I tell ya!☀️⛱🌊 Beach day with my boys was just what this momma needed. Anderson ran us around a million miles an hour and we are all covered in sand and beyond worn out but beyond happy.🤗 || GUYS I gotta be honest with you. This has been my worst week of eating in a looooooong long long time and I don't know what is going on but I just have not been able to get it together!😂 I have eaten all the things basically every other day this week.😁 I start out great and healthy then I just lose my mind?? And I could easily just not mention it or post about something else but it's on my mind and more than anything, I just want you to know that IT'S NORMAL. (At least for me?😂) And yeah, I eat really really clean most if the time but it was not something that came easily to me. And every now and then I have times like this week where for no good reason I just slide back into my "old" eating ways and the motivation is just not there. THE DIFFERENCE though, between now and when I started, is that I am in such a healthier place mentally. I may not have killed any of my workouts this week, but I still did them. I may not have eaten the best, but every day I gave it an effort. Most importantly, am I a little bummed? Sure! BUT what I'm NOT is depressed or guilty or mad about it. Life has ups and downs and this is MY healthy LIFESTYLE. This week wasn't my best in that regard, but I'm still proud of my effort and I'm not about to let it throw me off. Moral of the story? BE GENTLE WITH YOURSELF. Do your best. Live life. Do your best to be healthy but pleaseee don't beat yourself up if your best turns out to be fries and a slushie. It happens.💁🏻🍟🍹Maybe that's not the best advice but I'm a firm believer life is to be enjoyed! Now go ENJOY the rest of your weekend lovelies! I know I will.🤗💗💗 . . . . . . . #weekendvibes #girlswithmuscle #workout #fit #fitness #fitchick #fitfam #fitmom #fitfam #bbg #bbgbabes #bbgcommunity #bbgmums #bbgmoms #bbgsisters #bbgfam #happy #healthy
