20 Imágenes del antes y después de personas transformadas demostrando que el peso «no importa»

Cuando intentamos ponernos en forma, lo más habitual es que nos pesemos semanalmente para ver cuál ha sido nuestro progreso. Sin embargo, quizás no sea una buena idea, y es que hay que ser consciente de que el peso no tiene en cuenta la proporción de grasa o masa muscular. Fíjate en esta recopilación de imágenes y lo entenderás mucho mejor.

Imágenes que muestran que el peso no es lo más importante

1- La constancia es siempre lo más importante

View this post on Instagram

A little post Christmas reminder that long term consistency trumps short term intensity 💪🏻 It’s tempting after all the Christmas feasting to restrict calories and smash out cardio but really that’s only a quick fix and it’s not sustainable or healthy. I used to do that every Christmas thinking I could burn off all that food, and sometimes I could maintain it for a few weeks, and then I’d ultimately end up bingeing because I was so deprived and exhausted. Instead of punishing yourself for a few extra meals enjoyed with family and friends, focus on getting back into a normal training routine and eating the right kinds of foods to fuel your body and your workouts. For me that involves lifting heavy weights 4 times a week, a little bit of cardio/conditioning every week and ensuring I’m eating the right balance of fats, protein and carbs. Ultimately what you do consistently throughout the year is going to have more of an influence on your fitness and your physique, than what you do for a couple weeks around Christmas.

2- Menos peso no significa más confianza en ti misma

View this post on Instagram

You know what the main difference is between these two photos? Besides the underwear 😏It's my confidence 💫 Most people look at a transformation photo and assume the person is more confident because of how they look in the after picture. But if you don't work on the inside, no matter how much weight you lose, you're still going to hate your body. I was constantly striving for a body that I did not have. As soon as I decided to create MY best body, that's when my mindset finally shifted. I used to pick on everything about myself, my hips were too wide, my knees were too big, my boobs were too small, my legs were too short, my shoulders were too broad. I'd break my body up into small little pieces that I could analyse and hate individually. Women will pick their bodies apart 😣 Exercising and growing my body, learning to appreciate the things about my body that I once hated has made me love myself again. I don't feel more confident in my body because I changed my body, I feel more confident because I finally accepted all the parts of my body that make me, ME ❤️❤️❤️

#Repost @my.fit.healthy.life ・・・ If you sat the old me down and told me ‘go workout consistently for two years, choose the healthy option 80% of the time, and you’ll weigh exactly the same amount on the scales. Now go’ I probably would have told you to F off 😂 I was so stuck in the mindset that kgs were everything, and my entire goal was to reach that certain ‘magic’ number, no matter what it took to get me there. It didn’t happen straight away, but slowly over time that mindset finally started to break down. It wasn’t easy, it’s so ingrained into us as women to ‘lose the last 5kgs’ ‘go on that ‘10 day liquid diet’ and all of that other rubbish the media likes to fill our heads with. But slowly slowly, I started to care less about what I weighed, and more about how I felt. It felt good to be strong. It felt good to reach a new fitness goal. It feel good to nourish my body with the right foods and not try to fight off those hunger pangs. To not have to deal with the guilt after bingeing when it all got too much 😔. I never want to go back to that place, and I don’t want any other women to be stuck there either. Lose the quick fixes, take things slow, eat wholesome foods, find what works for you. And ditch those scales for good, because you are worth SO much more than anything they can ever tell you ❤️

7- La disciplina y el deseo de llevar una vida más saludable son lo importante

View this post on Instagram

✖️DISCIPLINE ➕ DETERMINATION ✖️ . . They say it takes 21 days to create a habit. It’s that habit of discipline and the determination of wanting to create a healthier life for myself that has been the backbone of my training the last two years. These past 7 weeks since starting the 12 week challenge I have been so proud of the discipline I have show when it comes to my workouts. Some days have been crazy busy and I’ve only had 45 minutes free and instead of saying I just don’t have time, I’ve got to the gym and smashed out a workout. I have not missed one single workout no matter how busy or crazy my day is and that all comes back to my determination + discipline 👌🏼 I look forward to training. Having recently been through an injury where I couldn’t train properly for months has made me appreciate what our bodies are capable of doing in full health. ✨ I saw that number go up again on the scale the other day but this just proves that we should all shout a massive F U to those numbers because the number on the scale don’t mean shit!!! #screwthescale . . . #bbg #bbgcommunity #bbgfam #bbgprogress #PWR #kelseywells #sweat #pwrbykelsey #100strong #bbgbabes #bbggirls #bbgover30 #bikinibodyguide #bikinibody #bbgstronger #bbgfamily #sweatwithkayla #kaylasarmy #kaylaitsines #fit #fitfam #fitspo #fitness #fitchick #fitties #thekaylamovement #strongnotskinny #anytimefitness

8- ¿Por qué nos preocupa tanto cuánto pesamos?

View this post on Instagram

Why are we so hung up on how much we weigh? It makes me so sad when I hear females obsessing over their weight, particular because that used to be me. Majority of my adult life I've weighed between 65-68kgs and for my height that’s definitely on the lower end of my healthy weight range. I used to avoid carbs, my diet was severely lacking in fibre, which ultimately lead to exacerbating my IBS, and all because I wanted to be ‘skinny’. We need to work together towards demolishing this ridiculous idea that a specific weight means we’re beautiful. Beautiful can be any weight. Don’t allow a number to define your happiness. You can look and feel good at any weight. If you like lifting weights, keep doing it. Do whatever makes you feel happy and strong. It’s been a difficult process, but I’m glad I’m at a stage where I don’t care that I weigh over 70kgs. I feel healthy and strong and that’s what’s important. I want the same for you. I want for you to feel good, regardless of what the damn scale says. It’s time to get rid of it. Track your progress by how you fit into your clothes or by pictures, but most importantly by how you FEEL. Remember, you ARE beautiful and you ARE enough, just as you are. #screwthescales #transformationtuesday

2 years later and an entirely different body composition. just to prove that #screwthescale is such a true statement 🙌🏻 Because weight is NOT a good measurement of progress So many important progressions these last few months including 👉🏻My strength gains, lifting over double what I used to 👉🏻my mental and muscular endurance I have built 👉🏻body composition- I have gained 4 kilos of muscle and dropped over 7% body fat 👉🏻most importantly the changes inside learning to love my body and its flaws making this a lifestyle change not a fad diet. Food is not the enemy!! Eating plenty of fats and carbs and treat meals as I please 💁🏼‍♀️ (every 2nd day) 😂because BALANCE is absolute 🔑

SCREW THE SCALES 🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️ proof that just because you weigh more doesn’t mean you’ve got fatter (and also that I need a tan) September ⏩ Now I realise the pose isn’t exactly the same 🤷🏻‍♀️ I’ve been training more and I haven’t been eating any more than usual so where is this weight coming from? MUSCLE! 💪🏼💪🏼 Muscle weighs more than fat! So don’t be discouraged by the number on the scales 💁🏻 There are plenty of other ways to track progress 💪🏼 I generally don’t weigh myself I opt for tracking my progress through photos and how I feel in myself instead 🤷🏻‍♀️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . —————————————————————————————— #transformationtuesday #screwthescales #gainingweightiscool #muscle #musclegain #abs #girlswithabs #weightgain #fitfam #fitfamuk #instafit #fitstagram #gymshark #gymsharkwomen #seamless #flex #myproteinwomen #myprotein #myproteinuk

11- «Antes, el peso lo era todo para mi. Ahora, mi perspectiva ha cambiado»

View this post on Instagram

#Repost @fitfenji ・・・ One year ago I would of considered taking drugs again so I didn't have to eat so my weight would go down (my thoughts on the 'easy' way out). One year ago, weight was EVERYTHING. But honestly, my perspective is shifting 🤓😏. Me- the girl who grew up around ideals of being skinny. It's terribly scary to realise that I'm different. That I want different things. But it's also incredibly freeing to accept that and roll with it 😎👌 Whenever someone gives me feedback about what I'm doing for me, I just smile cause at the end of the day- the only person that matters is me 😉😘 SO ✋️Imma keep on going 👊💪 Here's to doing things you never thought you could and never giving up 👻🏃‍♀️💃 xx

#Repost @carinafitmama ・・・ "Don't weigh yourself. Throw out the scales. Your weight doesn't matter. But here, let me weigh myself to prove to you that you don't need to" 😂 . . Seriously though, there was a stage where I needed to throw them out! I spent years staring at that number thinking it meant something – how beautiful, desirable, valuable, popular I was. I was "more" of those things if the number was getting smaller. I was less of them and had less value if the number got bigger 😢… I used it to measure my worth. I would tell myself "If I can just get under 60kg, all these good things will happen. I will be better". . . Scales can sometimes be useful if used correctly, as one form of measurement in a weight loss journey. But weight is only one part of it and not necessarily the best measurement. It has taken me a long time to realize that it's just a number and that number has zero bearing on how good or happy your life is. Emotional and psychological issues don't magically evaporate when you hit that goal number you've got in your mind. Only you can control or improve those things, through your actions and thoughts. That number doesn't tell you how kind you are, how intelligent or funny you are, how strong you are or how much you mean to your loved ones. It has no connection to your worth. So please don't give it that power 😘

14- Deja de centrarte en el peso, está claro que no sirve para nada

View this post on Instagram

#Repost @gains4girls ・・・ This isn’t anything most of you haven’t heard before but if it teaches just one person something new or allows them to re-evaluate things then I’ll be happy 🙂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ STOP FOCUSING ON YOUR SCALE WEIGHT. If I used this as a sole measure of ‘progress’ since I started training 4/5 years ago I’d think I was still at square one as I weigh pretty much the same (if not heavier actually) as I did when I was 19/20. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The key is that my body composition is entirely different. Remember: *muscle is denser than fat*. The above photos are just a year apart and I weigh *exactly* the same in both photos, but I’m leaner in the right photo. Bearing in mind I also spent a good 6/7 months in a significant deficit last year whilst prepping for various shows. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m not saying to completely disregard scales, there can be some use in them. I’m using them now as I cut for my holiday. But, if you find that your scale weight gives you more anxiety, if it dictates your mood or impacts how you value yourself as a person… then stop ✋🏼 Instead focus on the efforts you can put in to get you from A > B (or rather to keep you ‘progressing’). Focus on fuelling your body, on training hard and consistently *over a looong period of time* & applying progressive overload. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know it’s easier said than done but please, don’t sweat the small stuff: like a number on a scale or which supplements you should be taking or how many grams of carbs/fat/protein your favourite influencer is taking or how many times she trains her glutes a week…. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ IMO: learn the basic compounds and *execute them well*, get enough food in to fuel your goals, enjoy life & accept that it’s not going to be a linear journey of progression but as long as you’re having fun with it then wtf does the time frame matter?! 🤷🏻‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

#Repost @adrienneosuna ・・・ I know some of you may get tired of these but 🤷🏼‍♀️ cause if it helps one person detach from the scale then it's worth it ❤️ I'm reminding myself of this today. Because truth is you can be feeling so good and you step on the scale and UGHHHH really!? Nothing?! Or only 1 pound?! Or god forbid a GAIN 😭🙄😓 I know that's a terrible feeling but if you're consistent at lifting and exercising and hitting protein, don't quit because things ARE happening whether the scale reflects it or not. The left -From a tired mama struggling w a low cal diet/ binge cycles that only did cardio to the right a healthy mama that lifts and eatttsss over 2000 cals a day🙌🏼 . . .

PART 2:❗️THE NUMBER ON THE SCALE DOESNT TELL THE WHOLE STORY❗️🤷🏼‍♀️📈 . Barely a difference in scale weight between these two photos of me🤔But obviously a very significant difference in my BODY COMPOSITION💪🏼🔥. More muscle now & less fat. But still a similar scale weight⚖️. This is what I try to explain to clients! Don't be discouraged if the number on the scale doesn't say what you feel like it should- less weight is not necessarily better🤷🏼‍♀️your weight can go up, down, or stay the same but all of it can still mean you're making progress! Taking your measurements can be a huge help: because, for instance, perhaps your waist is getting smaller but your butt is getting more muscular🤷🏼‍♀️📈💪🏼 that may look the same on the scale but very different in real life. ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ . ❗️2013: lost a bunch of weight and then gained it all back (+ some) because I didn't know BALANCE. I would over-restrict my calories Mon-Thurs and binge eat everything I could find Fri-Sun. I'd do tons of cardio when I went to the gym and barely lifted weights because I thought it would make me look "like a man"… . ❗️2017: I lift weights & track my macros👌🏼. I eat enough food every day of the week to keep me satisfied. No more binge eating & no more over restricting🙅🏼. I lift as much as I possibly can + do a little cardio to keep my body healthy😁! . The difference between these two photos is the difference between being unhappy/unhealthy & being happy/healthy. . 🙏🏼Let me help you reach your goals!📈 💪🏼Join my Summer Challenge by clicking the link in my bio! 📥Feel free to DM with questions💕 .

#Repost @fitchristina ・・・ #TransformationTuesday: I’ve reached the same weight I was when I first started training almost 2 yrs ago! Kinda seems like my fitness journey has come full circle in a way, doesn’t it??? 😁🙏🏼 __________ In 2016 I set my first ever fitness goal, which was to basically just shrink myself down to 120 lbs. 🤷🏻‍♀️ if you scroll through the oldest posts/captions on my account you’ll notice I was counting down every pound on my scale… 👀 If I stopped “progressing” with this number, I would further restrict my calories and try to exercise more – even though I would get dizzy trying to lift heavy or do high intensity cardio… my body’s way of telling me it was seriously running out of fuel. 😩🤦🏻‍♀️ __________ To this day, I continually get messages from girls saying how excited they are to have started lifting! 🙌🏼 BUT they can’t help feeling stressed out seeing the number on their scale stay the same or even go UP, asking “what am I doing wrong?!” 😪 __________ Why do we as women keep doing this to ourselves??? Men are generally so PROUD when they’ve put on weight when working out – meanwhile many women are determined to forever shrink themselves down to nothing. __________ I’m here to remind you, love, that YOU DON’T NEED to constantly weigh less and less to prove you’re healthy or fit. The scale CANNOT 🚫 tell you how much fat you’ve shed 💦 versus how much lean, toned, strong muscle mass you are building. 💪🏼 __________ Eat healthy, train hard, sleep well and give your body the TIME it needs to transform from the inside out. 🙏🏼 As one of my amazing followers put it the other day, “give yourself some grace, girl.” I’m rooting for your success, whatever your health and fitness goals may be. You got this. 👏🏼💕
