There are lots of fitness freaks out there, and these days, a good number of women make up this group of enthusiastic workout fanatics.
The ladies are sharing before-and-after pictures of their bodies. The interesting thing is that they weigh the same weight, but due to a healthy diet and exercise, they look completely different.
With this interesting discovery, they are helping prove that good health is more than a number on the bathroom weighing scale. They are showing lots of women out there that you can get fit without having to lose any weight.
As one of them eventually realized, there was "nothing wrong" with her body. The only problem was the way she viewed and treated it.
1. Seven Years Apart, But The Same Weight. How Crazy Is That?
You will soon realize that the side-by-side pictures of these women prove beyond any doubt that weight is not all that matters as far as health and fitness are concerned. Unfortunately, not everyone has made this realization.
Many of us choose a healthy lifestyle, but the scale does not always reflect this lifestyle choice, which frustrates us. Some fail to see past the number on the scale and lose motivation, not realizing that their body is already changing for the better with each passing day.
These amazing physical transformations should remind you that the number on the scale is not the be-all-end-all when it comes to fitness. We need to look beyond our weights when trying to establish how healthy we are.
However, most people live by the phrase, "when you look good, you feel good." That needs to change.
It's time we accept that we can feel good even though we might not yet look as amazing as we think we should be.
These pictures help prove exactly that.
