Female athletes, final project for my first year at RIT!
Ideas of under-coverage of women in athletic media and sexualization of women in the athletics industry.
One year ago today I hit my “goal weight” and in the one year of maintaining my weightloss I’ve continued to make progress both mentally and physically.
Left: running 4-6x a week, minimal weight training (really just weight machines), still counting calories, eating 1700-1800 calories a day
Right: lifting 5-6x a week, cardio on the elliptical when the mood strikes, no longer counting calories but easily eating 2000+ a day
I’m 130 in both pictures, but my weight hasn’t been completely static, it fluctuates daily (like everyones does), and the couple of times I weighed myself during the winter I was about 135. Now I know it’s not a huge physical difference, I didn’t do any sort of proper bulk/cut, which I may do this year, but the freedom and peace of mind that has come with no longer tracking and counting everything I eat is more progress than I could have ever hoped for.
Also let this be proof that lifting weights will not make you bulky ladies!
