#screwthescale : une jeune maman dénonce l’obsession du chiffre sur la balance

Kelsey Wells

Kelsey Wells, une jeune maman accro au fitness, a lancé le hashtage #screwthescale vite devenu viral sur Instagram. Son objectif : montrer aux personnes obsédées par la balance qu’il faut arrêter de se faire duper par de simples chiffres.

Faut-il atteindre un certain poids pour avoir un corps de rêve ? Non, dit cette jeune maman. Et elle le prouve avec trois photos d’elle prises après son accouchement. Sur le dernier cliché, elle apparaît plus tonique et musclée que sur la deuxième… alors qu’elle a des kilos en plus. Obsédée par son poids par le passé, Kelsey Wells a pris la décision de se mettre au sport pour son plaisir et non plus pour se punir d’avoir trop mangé, et ça a tout changé. Elle explique : "Je ne me suis jamais sentie aussi bien dans ma peau que maintenant".

On ne le dira jamais assez : être bien dans son corps et avoir une silhouette qui nous plait. Les chiffres ? On s’en balance.


This kid!?????????? He is currently OBSESSED with playing "blast off" (aka having us throw him up in the air) -- which I love!???? However he's not exactly the tiniest of two-year-olds so let's just say my arms were sore before I even began #BBG #arms today.???????? || YOU GUYS I CANNOT EVEN RN.???????? Let me tell you something. Yesterday afternoon Ry was like "hey! Check it out! Elite daily wrote an article about your last post!! I was like WHAA!!? And we thought that was pretty cool cause I mean I never imagined someone would write a news article about one of my posts????? Anyway, then I read it and by the end I actually got emotional. Because it was so nice. And mostly because it made me SO FREAKING HAPPY that someone else was helping me spread a message that I feel so, so passionate about. THEN I come out of Costco today to a bunch of texts from @caseylynnhoward with links to more articles!? ?????????????? I AM SERIOUSLY BLOWN AWAY YOU GUYS!! ESP to each of you who have written saying it was what you needed to hear, and to those of you who have helped spread the #screwthescale mantra, my heart could burst.?????? I just feel so thankful. || Last but not least HI!???????? I'm Kelsey. I write really long captions cause I really don't know how to not. I may be a lot of things but I'm always honest and I'm always myself -- I have anxiety and if I start filtering myself or worrying what people think it stresses me out!???? I am obsessed with my boys and fitness and emojis and BBG CAUSE ITS THE BEST. And, of course, food. I think we should workout because our bodies are AMAZING and deserve to be taken care of. OKLOVEYOUBYE!???????????? . . . . . #mysweatlife #sweat #bbgbabes #bbgmums #bbgmoms #bbgcommunity #fit #fitmom #fitness #fitspo #fitgirls #fitfam #fitness #workout #happy #healthy

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

|| 111 LBS vs 136 LBS || My greatest regret looking back on my highschool and college years was not ALLOWING myself to be confident and happy with my body EXACTLY THE WAY IT WAS. For as long as I can remember I struggled with self confidence. In my mind the poison of comparison was constant. I picked myself apart and genuinely believed if I could just lose just a few pounds, or if a certain boy liked me, THEN I would love my body. Flash forward to the photo on the left, my freshman year of college. My anxiety disorder was taking its toll and I lost more than a few pounds. I was also dating the most amazing, supportive boy of my dreams (hi @rpwells ??) who told me I was beautiful every day. But guess what? I STILL struggled with self confidence and I STILL felt I would be happier if I could lose a few pounds.???????? It was looking at this photo that somehow snapped me out of it and with the support of Ryan and my family I began to heal. Changing my mindset was anything but immediate and negative self talk is something I still battle with at times and will always need to be wary of. But it really is my MENTAL transformation that has been the greatest since discovering @kayla_itsines #bbg program. Just weeks into it, loving myself and positive self talk came easier to me than it ever had over the last 8 years of fighting for it. Not because I saw immediate physical results, but because I was finally treating my body how it DESERVED to be treated. Living an active and healthy lifestyle is my key to freeing my mind from anxiety and replacing self doubt with self confidence. I share this with you because maybe it can be your key too. Because right now, just the way you are, you are BEAUTIFUL. And you deserve to know it.?? . . . #transformationtuesday #fitness #fitchick #fitmom #fitfam #fit #strong #healthy #happy #fitspo #fitnessmotivation #workout #girlgains #bbgprogress #screwthescale #bbgcommunity #strongissexy #selflove
