Kelsey Wells encourages her social media following not to give up if the scale doesn’t reflect your hard work in the gym. Take notes!
Kelsey Wells urges her Instagram followers — all (almost) half a million of them — to “SCREW THE SCALE!” That’s right. Screw it! At DynaPro Direct, we love the message she’s sending out. Muscle weighs more than fat, so if your scale is staying the same—or gasp—showing an increase in weight, don’t lose your motivation to accomplish personal goals.
Your body is always responding to the healthy choices you make, whether those changes are with an increase physical activity or practicing better nutrition. Trust us, if you’re taking care of your body, it is transforming for YOU in a positive way. Just hang in there and wait for your results!
The Instagram fitness star posted a side-by-side collage of her body at different weights. There’s one image of her looking really fit and healthy, and that image is showing her at 18 pounds heavier than another image of her where she looks similar, but with less definition.
Wells had even more advice for her fitness clan — in all CAPS. Because, #important.
“STOP GETTING HUNG UP ON THE NUMBER ON THE STUPID SCALE! PLEASE STOP THINKING YOUR WEIGHT EQUALS YOUR PROGRESS AND FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING PLEASE STOP LETTING YOUR WEIGHT HAVE ANY AFFECT WHATSOEVER ON YOUR SELF-ESTEEM.”
Yes, yes, and yes. Preach girl! We’re so glad when she stepped on the scale and saw an increase in weight, she had the self-esteem and power to shout #SCREWTHESCALE—and you should, too!
