LONG POST: I figured I would give you guys an update/explanation for my limited activity on here, as far as posting is concerned, despite not having to worry about school right now.
Last summer I found myself focusing more on the number on the scale that represented my “success” in coming down from my heaviest weight years before, and finding the best angles and poses to try and show that I was improving my size despite the weight loss. I was way more concerned with keeping up the regiment I had set for myself as far as posting was concerned, and honestly that’s embarrassing to me looking back. I originally made an Instagram account for me to be able to track my own progress, using pictures to gauge my growth moving forward, but I became distracted with likes, followers, and how successful everyone else thought I was.
In reality I wasn’t being honest with myself about the “gains” I was making, and but was convincing myself that the pictures I was taking in these very specific poses showed the “real” progress I’d been making. I still have a long way to go with my physique when it comes to proper dieting and workout routines, and it’s time I admit that to myself and actively try to improve upon them again. I’ll still try and post at least once a week for the sake of keeping up to date for myself, and also letting those of you who are genuinely invested know as well, but I’m going to try to take this summer and really focus on making sure that the physique I am presenting is more than just an angle or great lighting. I’d highly recommend taking a break from regularly posting now and then for those of you with a fitness oriented account especially, because you may find that you’ve managed to convince yourself that you’ve made more progress than you really have too, and the quicker you realize that then the less time you will be ultimately wasting in the end. For now, here’s to another #FlexFriday
and a more honest one at that.
