Unhealthy Obsession | The Truth About My Fitness Journey


There’s a really really really big difference between working out for your health and working out for your body image To be willing to find the light though You have to be willing to believe in yourself and to believe in your story and to believe that there’s more that we’re going through And that what you’re going through is going to bring you Further into who you’re supposed to be and your calling and find the good in it Hey guys, welcome back to my channel a fifth-year first time here My name is Kristie Sita and I post videos every Wednesday and Fridays So today I posted a poll on my Instagram Which if you don’t follow me there make sure you go do that because I do this quite often when I ask you guys what You want to hear on this channel? So head over to – um, follow me but I posted on here a question asking what you guys wanted me to chat about so just felt like We’ve been doing a lot of activities and I just kind of wanted to sit down and chat with you about some things I’ve been realizing lately. So today I also made a post about Kind of the transition of why I work out and what the healthiest mindset is to have in the gym and why you go to The gym in the first place and there’s a huge difference Between these two concepts as working out for your appearance and working out for your health and so there’s a really really really big difference guys between working out for your health and working out for your body image and Who’s defining that body image? Is it for you? Is it for a personal goal or is it for what other people are going to think around you and I think it’s a really? Important step in our fitness journey to detect why you’re doing it and get your mind on the right track So I want to start with a little bit of my story growing up. I fell in love with fitness I didn’t only fall in love with The progression from studio to the gym and the athletic ability and the endurance and the strength that came from it I mainly fell in love with the body image I mainly fell in love with what other people would say about my body and the compliments I would get on my strength and the compliments I would get on my muscles and all of those things that became My main drive which I know is why I was never satisfied in the gym I was overworking myself all the time and is unhealthy matter because it ended up not being for me So when it wasn’t for me, I didn’t even see the progression. I didn’t even see the results I was just so hungry to please other people and the people around me that Was completely oblivious to what my body actually looked like and I spent years like that I spent years of having this acceptance goal of fitness of the it being for the other people not actually realizing why I was in there in the first place and what the capacity of Fitness has to do to your health because it’s so much more than just Working out with so much more than lifting weight to be building a healthy and sustainable Lifestyle because working out for other people isn’t sustainable and you’re never gonna be fully happy You’re fully confident when your opinions of yourself and your worth of yourself is based off what other people think Because that’s just not okay you cannot let other people define you and you can’t let other people’s thoughts define your body image and have that be your Ambition because you’re never gonna be good enough, you’re never gonna match up to what people think and what they want from you So if you’re going from that place, it’s not Leading you to success. It’s not leading you to a healthy life. And so Personally when I kind of made this switch it was when I was also going through a really rough time and I really noticed that my body was my revenge like it was a hundred percent of my ambition was To make someone feel worse because I looked better and that is so wrong guys It is so wrong, but I know I’m not the only one that suffers with that I know whenever we go through a breakup or whenever we go through a hard season ever we lose somebody It’s always about you know, the whole revenge body It’s a real thing we all do it and I just want to encourage you guys to Detect and take advantage of the time in the gym because that’s not taking advantage of it Because honestly for me it’s taken a long time. It has not been an easy road but There’s a transition to make there. You need to realize that going to the gym is For you, it’s for your growth. It’s for your mental health is for your physical health is for your health It’s not for anybody else It doesn’t matter to anybody else if you’re going in there with the ambition to do it for somebody else You’re already in the wrong place So we need to get in the habit guys of just taking the gym for our me time like How can you say at the end of the day that you didn’t do something for yourself that you didn’t progress that you didn’t get? Stronger if you’re taking that time for yourself saying no no matter how busy my day was no matter how crappy my day was I took that hour for myself and I Dedicated that hour to my own growth, especially guys when we’re in athletic fields There’s a lot of ways when we don’t see our progress There’s a lot of ways where we get stuck in this rut of feeling like we’re not progressing We’re not growing but the truth is if you’re training and if you’re in class and if you’re in the gym How can you not be progressing and for me the gym results? I felt a lot quicker than dance and I think that was a big piece of why I gravitated towards it, too Was I felt like I was getting stronger. I felt like I was growing I felt like I was getting better Consistently all the time. I felt my endurance getting better and it was just this really crazy contrast and realization that it’s like whoa Like there is no boundaries for it in this place like it I think for me it’s definitely a place that I realize that anything is possible. Like there’s no disability. There’s no disadvantage There’s nothing that’s too big for me to hold me back from getting to these goals and getting to these dreams. And so You know, the gym is really my playground for that of being like I am capable I’m worthy like this is for me I’m not doing this for anybody else. I’m pushing myself because I want to get better I’m pushing myself because I want to grow and I think when you can successfully make that transition you see everything so much clearer Because if you’re doing it for yourself You you have this space to let that mentally digest and realize that you are working so hard If you’re even getting to the gym like that’s a huge step guys do not underestimate those little pieces of your journey because they’re also Relevant, and you just I just really I don’t know if this is coming across clear guys But don’t do it for other people do it for yourself and you’re gonna feel so much better It’s gonna open up a whole nother door and a whole nother Feeling in the gym is when you just take that hour like work on yourself develop yourself Mentally push yourself physically push yourself set big goals, you know Like make that a place to be like I am capable Because you are all of you guys aren’t so capable of reaching those goals And I just want to encourage you especially coming up to summer here when a lot of us We talk about summer bodies and we talk about you know, all these things that’s again based off what other people think about us but do it for yourself do it for you do it so you can feel confident in a bikini do it so you can feel Confident around people knowing that you’re putting in the work because guys if you’re putting in the work, I can’t stress this enough it’s gonna take time but You’re gonna get better. You’re gonna progress you’re gonna be more confident You’re gonna go into this with a whole nother mindset and if you’re saying hey Kristie you worked hard today You went to the gym, you push yourself. You are capable. You are strong you are worthy then I know that I’ve done my part. I know that I’ve worked hard. I know that I’ve worked for this goal I don’t want it to be too confusing but guys I just I really really really really want to encourage you that take that time for you. Take it back Don’t let anybody take that time away from you Don’t let anybody else be your Drive in the gym because you are the only one that’s gonna make those change you’re the only one that’s gonna sustain that change and make it healthy and Just learn to fall in love with that time I think that’s how I stay motivated to is because I know how hard I can get on myself if I don’t take that time So for me, it’s just holding myself accountable. It’s knowing that every single day I’m doing something to move forward to move in a good direction and in my health physique and Mentality and my mental space like it’s so so so important. This is something that I’m continuously going through I think it’s a journey for all of us. I don’t think it ever becomes super super easy. I think I’m constantly reminding myself why I’m there in the first place and keeping that fresh every single day as to being like no because our Instincts is telling us to do it for everybody else. But inside we need to be doing it for ourselves So I just want to encourage you and if you guys are in a space also I don’t always like to advertise this but you guys are in a space where you’re ready to take on that mindset But you think you need a coach to help you but I do do one-on-one coaching So this is all online It can be for anybody anywhere around the world If you guys are interested in that you can email me or you can just apply right now because there’s very very very limited space Left and it’s a really selective roster because I just love these girls so much and I’m really invested in them And so if that’s you and if you want to try it apply down below. I’ll leave the link And yeah, I’d love to hear from you guys I pretty much just ask you a lot about what your goals are and and what your past is and kind of what your focus And and how I can help you because I really want to make sure that we are a good match to it’s not just based Off your killer application.

  8. ❤️❤️

  9. Heyy😊😊

  10. This video was very inspiring ❤️🥰

  11. OMG! You are a big inspiration! <3 If you don't know what I say, is because my English is so bad. I'm coming from Denmark so I just hope you can read what I write <3

  12. Thanks Kristie needed to hear this! Lately I been finding the gym to be my sanctuary where I am truly happy.. everything else in life (work, relationship, friends) feel kinda bah and stagnant right now hopefully that'll pass.

  13. Beautiful video hope you are doing well kristie and your mum and dad as well as always have fun and enjoy your day an night.

  14. Kristie i completely agree wit everything you said spoken and writen! Thats the attitude! 🙂

  15. Such a healthy attitude! You’ve come very far in a relatively short life (you’re not young but you’re still FRESH!) to recognize you were doing it for the wrong reasons is huge.
    So many people never got that memo.
    You have a body that shows your hard work but it’s super healthy, you look strong and flexible and coordinated. You move with confidence and spectacular posture.
    Our bodies are our friends and we should treat them well 🙏🏻

  16. OK you’re my inspiration in school writing a survivor story and I’m choosing your story to put in my essay my teacher thought you were so inspirational I just wanted to let you know that you’re changing lives around the world and you should keep doing what you’re doing love you

  17. Cant stop watching your videos

  18. Hi

  22. Thank you for the advice! You inspire me to work hard for my dreams! You are amazing and I bet with your advice I could probably do ANYTHING I WANTED TO!

  23. I love your channel so much!!!!!

  24. The best is to be fit, for your own health, not for what people think of you. ☺☺.

  25. Thank you for this video 🏵 i don’t know if you remember me I commented on one of your videos and you liked it !!

  26. As a dancer, I've been trying to make this transition lately.. its been a journey but I already feel better when I value working out for my health over body image!

  27. Hiiiiii xx

  28. U r my idle and u r so brave

  29. Awesome message Kristie!!

  30. Omg your sooooo pretty discovered you yesterday and already love you

  31. My revenge body is 40+ years of man-style. I earned this gut baby!!! lol

  32. You are always so positive and uplifting. This is what the world needs. Being healthy should always be about you first.
    I have a topic…what has your faith journey been like so far and have you considered going on a mission trip? Or are you involved in any mission work in Vancouver?
    God bless, Kristie <3

  33. For some reason Youtube's Algorithm decided to recommend me your "Why I dont wear Prosthetics" Video…
    Glad that it did. You are really an amazing person with a very inspiring approach to life.
    An example of the power of believe.

    I left a subscription and will be back.
    Carpe Diem, i guess. 😀

  34. You go girl I cannot do anything with out severe pain so I don`t do it, I am PTD so do your thing for yourself and be glad you can

  35. Very good advice. I love your chat video. Talk about anything that is on your mind and we will be interested👍

  36. Bella

  37. People need to stop worrying about what others think about how they look. there is no need to hold certain people, to a higher standard, and some to a lower standard. We are all unique in our own way. And if you are not confident with your body to begin with, you will never get anywhere, if you try to follow the "standards" of other people. Self love and confidence is top priority. Once you embrace yourself, and love yourself, then move on to making you, the best you that you can be. Great video as always Kristie. God bless

  38. Its not about U r amputee or U ain't – borders are only in our heads U can do every fuckin thin U want-but there's no 'magic pill' it just doesn't work this way-if U have a target, vision in Ur head U have to work Ur ass-every single push-up or new dance choreography brings Ur self closer to Ur target-if U ll fail-oh well we all have failed-but at least U tried.Love Ur vids

  39. I work in pro sports, and working out for body image is such a struggle. I’m not an athlete, but i work with them. More importantly, my boss works with them. And I sense when my boss looks at me he’s disappointed. I feel like if I don’t have a super hero type body, I will be looked down on. And, spoiler, I don’t. It is really stressful. Sometimes I hate going into the office. I like my job, but the image thing is so stressful.

  40. I'm going to follow you on Instagram!!!

  41. Love the message!!! Thank you for being inspirational and helping people understand the power of the mind🧐

  42. Hi Kristie very well done! Your awesome! ❤

  54. I'm really glad the broken youtube algorithm led me to your channel, one of the few recommended channels are actually meaningful.
    Kisses from Bulgaria🇧🇬!

  55. thank you SO MUCH! (btw you just got a new sub) when i first started going to the gym this year it was because I was jealous of one of my friends who started to go to the gym. Iv been going for about four months now and iv stopped caring about her and started to focus on me and iv been doing it for myself.

  56. This Video was so good! What you said is so important.

  57. I know this is not the same thing but you are very inspiring for my brother he has down syndrome and everyone makes fun of him and it makes me so mad when people make fun of people with an disability and I love my brother so much and you also inspire me to not care what other people think and like you said there is nothing holding you back just is amazing.

  58. I love your energy 💜

  59. I love how this inspires you

  60. You're pretty 😍

  61. Ily ur the only person that I want to be like

  62. Women should be having babies. Not setting PR's.

  63. Why don't you have any hair on your left arm? Is it because of the amputation?

  64. i finally suscribe, i watched some of your videos and i like you a lot! you are funny , strong and inspiring
    <3 i was wondering if you are vegan or vegetarian cause for some reason i though you were (or are xD ) or im confusing you with someone else xD my memory kind of sucks

  65. wait is body image how you want other people to see you or how good you look?

  66. You earned a new sub from me <3
    When I was 16, I used to care so much about how people would look at my body, boys around my age at that time were so much bigger than me and I would always get comments from people saying that I need to go eat a sandwich or something. I was born 2 months premature and thus complications led to me being much skinnier than the average male. But now at the age of 19, I won't let my insecurities or my biological disadvantage put me down or prevent me from going to the gym. Working out has helped me so much in terms of improving my own body image. I still do receive comments on how skinny I am but I know myself and I see so much more gains in terms of strength and endurance. I am so much more confident in my own body now more than ever so yeah, the ride is coming along great.

  67. Keep it up. I love the way you stay positive and get strong. Just like Winston Churchill 🙂 and you looking healthy and beautiful 🙂

  68. Brooo I worry SO much on what people think of me that I don’t want to change my hair to a crazy color because of it. So guess what I’m doing? I’m going to dye my hair blue. I think I need to just stop worrying about it and just do it.

  69. Work out to be healthy, move weight, be strong. Looking good is how you see yourself while getting better.

  70. Just discovered your channel, and had to leave a comment. Love your message and love what you do. Wish everyone had a love of health and fitness that you have.

    Great content, and you're definitely made for youtube. MORE FITNESS. I'm going to the gym 3 times today. Inspired

  71. I started working out for my health but I became addicted to the change

  72. ❤️

  73. Are you all about that bass? No treble? Lol . I agree, I like work yourself but I say, Be better, choose better, become better each chance you get or see/feel that time come, be better in mind,body and soul. Wish you the best

  74. I just found your channel today and find you to be all around knowledgeable, interesting, and really fun! I've watched a few videos but I would really love to know what your nutrition is like day to day. My current struggle is balancing my nutrition around muscle gains and not keeping excess fat on my body. A video on that topic would be amazing and so helpful! <3

  75. There needs to be a way to like videos more than once.

  76. But 🍑 hahaha u are a funny girl,i love u

  77. Hi just came over this video and I’m a triple amputee and needing help to find a new designer colour for my new legs and arm

  78. Enough of the intro part on every video. It sounds like the worst self-help book you’ve ever read. Conceive, achieve, believe.

  79. keep it up

  80. where is your swimsuit from in the thumbnail !!!????

  81. U are a warrior of live, 👍🍀

  82. I just came across your channel and this video was beautiful! You are so strong, thanks for sharing💖 I would love for you to check out my fitness journey story xo Keep it up girl!

  83. This is very true. I am dealing with anxiety and depression and my psychologist told me to start going to the gym *every day*. So I did that.
    I have never been into sports, but this was really a turning point for me. When I am in the gym it is like taking a break from all my worries and bad thoughts. The more often I go to the gym the more happy and fulfilled I feel.

  84. You‘re wonderful ❤️❤️❤️

  85. I absolutely loved this video, you are such an inspiration and I can definitely relate to what you are saying and I am so grateful for you sharing and this is such an encouragement
    Thanks 🌸🌸

  86. Thank you for this, Kristie… God Bless you!! 🙂

  87. Hi beautiful dear you are so strong and beautiful and very nice think girl I'm very like you and ur all videos see I'm love you sweetie kristie sita
