WORK FOR STRONG, NOT SKINNY.
For the longest time, my main goal for working out was to stay skinny. As long as I had slim thighs, a flat tummy and arms small enough, I was happy.
As I got older I ran, lift, and yoga in order to maintain my shape.
But soon, my legs started getting thicker, and my booty started getting bigger. Running and lifting were indeed doing the opposite of keeping me slim. I was building muscle, and this was causing me to gain weight.
I was freaked out.
Why was the scale saying I was heavier now than I was before? Why were my pants getting tighter?
Not only that, I was hungrier much, much hungrier. So naturally, I started eating more.
Pasta made me run further. Proteins made me feel strong. And those veggies were great, but eating only veggies with my meat didn't keep me full like it used to.
It was as though working out intensely was doing the opposite of everything I wanted it to.
But little did I know, I was becoming strong.

It’s about my kyphosis journey and the major surgery I had. Please spread the word because if I can help one person going through something similar then I’ll be happy x
