I always see on my dash how there aren’t enough pictures of larger ladies working out, so I asked Lovie to snap a few pics during our workout. Sadly, I missed more of the hardcore activities before I thought to ask for pics, but you are left with these lovely jewels for some Fat-Girl-Fitspo <3
I’m 265lbs. I look like sh*t at the gym. I know I am ‘fat as hell’ and not very ‘hardcore’ in some b*tch a** anon’s opinion, but clearly: IDGAF. I run hard. I do CrossFit. I do MetCon. I Olympic Lift. I IGNORE everyone who tells me I can’t or that I shouldn’t because of my size: F*CK THAT. You can do anything you set your mind to with proper practice/training, which doesn’t mean you need a trainer. All you need is a capability to read, to watch, or to follow after others. Teach yourself. Be your own GD role model and ROCK THAT SH*T. If I can do it, you can do it and I will be here to help and inspire and answer anything you wanna ask, so long as I am Tumblin’. Well…unless you’re a rude anon b*tch, then you can enjoy failing at making me feel bad, because idgaf <3
I don’t care what size someone is, if you’re kicking ass at the gym you’re kicking ass at the gym.
work it girl!!!!
Just so you guys know… I got to under 15% bodyfat eating 7 meals and around/over 1500 calories A DAY!!!
Starving yourself and over exercising is not going to get you to your goal any faster. The weight you see dropping on the scale? That’s water weight and muscle tissue! You are just going to make yourself skinny fat and slow your metabolism. Once you’ve done this, the next time you start eating normally again, you’re going to gain all that weight back, PLUS more. This is why crash and fad diets don’t work! When you break down your lean muscle tissue, you slow your metabolism SIGNIFICANTLY which makes it way easier to gain body fat.
Be PATIENT. It only took me a few months to get in decent shape… and that was through HARD WORK. 7 meals a day consisting of lean protein (mainly eggs and fish), veggies (spinach, asparagus & broccoli), complex carbs (oatmeal & sweet potatoes) and healthy fats (natural peanut butter, olive oil & avocado). Plus I worked out 6 days a week lifting weights and doing cardio. I also drank a gallon of water a day and got plenty of sleep! It took me time and a lot of willpower and patience… but the end result was a lot better (and I was a lot more proud of it) from doing it through hard work and not shortcuts or drastic measures!
Fit and healthy is a LIFESTYLE… not a means to an end!
