If at first you don’t succeed…😂 After reading the comments on my last post, I just wanna say… • Plenty of weightlifters are fat. • I have one of the best lifting coaches in the sport. Thank you, @seanmrigsby! • I didn’t hurt myself at all. • I didn’t even bruise my ego, because failure is a part of training. • I don’t need to get “more fit” before I pursue lifting. Lifting IS getting me fit. • No one needs to be worried about my back/knees/pinkie toe. I’m the strongest I’ve been in the last ten years and any type of pain is almost non-existent exactly because I train in this body. • For all y’all who laughed with me, that was the point. Thank you. 😘 🏋🏻‍♀️
