Hiya honey :)
What you’ve been told is actually very true. You are at an unhealthy weight. In fact, even a doctor will tell you to gain weight. The lowest weight you can be to not be considered underweight and at risk is 126. I know that may sound like a scary number, but your health is the utmost importance. You shouldn’t feel hurt, your friends and family are simply looking out for you. They want you to be happy and healthy and at this weight, you are at risk for disease and health complications. So please, love, please consider gaining weight. You don’t have to go to McDonald’s and scarf down a billion cheeseburgers, that’s not healthy. Eat clean and healthy and weight train. I mean don’t forget cardio, that’s amazing for your heart and body in general, but strength training will gain weight in muscle instead of fat.
So, yes you really should gain weight for your health love and please don’t feel hurt. Everyone just wants you to be healthy <3
First thing you need to know about losing weight, first thing everybody needs to know about losing weight, the scale doesn’t mean shit. Pardon my French…. you know I’ve never understood that expression. Aaaaaaanyway. Yes, the scale doesn’t mean a rats rear end, is that better? At my lowest, people thought I was 145 when I was actually 134. Now, I’ve been told I look around 130 when I’m actually 150! See the difference? See the mother fudging difference??? I’m 20lbs heavier than what people think I actually am. It’s all about body composition baby. This means I have more muscle and less fat than I did in the first example. You’ve most likely gained muscle and lost fat. We’ve all heard it, the same amount of muscle weighs more than the same amount of fat, and it is so freaking true.
To be honest, I don’t really know what I weigh today. That last example happened abouuuuuut 9 months ago?? Wanna know why? I chucked my scale. I did it for my sanity. I train almost everyday, but my weight never changed much. It was SO FREAKING HARD to lose weight The numbers were either staying the same or going UP for me. Dear lordy, UP?????? I nearly had a heart attack, but what I didn’t realize was that it didn’t matter. Weight has nothing to do with it. Fat is what you wanted to lose. I soon noticed that even though my weight was driving me crazy, my pants weren’t really fitting anymore. They were getting saggy and droopy. Buuuut anyway enough about me, just trying to give you an example.
Long story short (too late I guess). Don’t use the scale. Use a measuring tape or before and after pictures (yes they really work). This will give you a better look at your progress, or better yet look at your progress a different way. Can you run longer? faster? Lift more? Feel better? Progress isn’t always about weight or fat loss. I mean, yeah that’s is the optimal goal for you, but don’t forget the little successes along the way. Notice how your body is changing, and trust me it’s loving every minute of it.
If you sincerely don’t think you’ve gained muscle, check out my FAQ. The first big section before I get into individual questions is about altering body composition.
Good luck love!! <3
