Why fuck fitspo? (Genuinely interested in your thoughts, I agree with you but I just wanna know your insight!!)
I used to be a big fan of fitspo, if you look back at my first posts in my archive it’s literally all I ever posted. I thought they motivated me, but they just made me hate the body I was creating. I lost 80 pounds but my body didn’t look like the pictures I was posting still and after a while I began to resent myself. Fitspo is damaging. It’s thinspo with definition. You can’t be inspired by fitspo because you can’t equate their level of fitness with their body - that’s impossible to know just by looking. You can’t look at a body and be like “yeah, she’s so fit I’m super motivated.” What you’re doing instead is garnering motivation from their body, which can be harmful down the road if your body ends up never looking like that, which it probably won’t.
