My gym has a body scan machine available for members to use, and I’m really anxious to show numbers here, but for context and transparency I’m going to leave them visible. I was hesitant to use it, and I’m still not sure whether it’s a helpful or unhelpful tool, but I definitely found the information it provided surprising and really interesting. It almost challenges my perspective of my body, highlights the likelihood of dysmorphia in what I’m seeing vs what is really there. And my fitness level, and lean mass vs fat mass almost makes me more inclined to treat my body better, to work to maintain and keep improving it in a healthy manner. Still navigating the balance of not overdoing it, not obsessing over numbers and results, and trying to nourish my body in order to actually carry out the exercise I want to pursue. Bit overwhelming at times. But I think it will just be an ever-evolving process in learning to trust myself and staying aware of my intentions.
