Rachel Lee: Listen to your body

I lost a whooping 15kg in just 10 months and it was the skinniest I’ve ever been. Physically, it felt great. I started to receive lots of compliments, guys were chasing me for my looks and figure, family and friends started to tell me that I look more amazing than before. I was chasing after vanity, I was chasing for acceptance. However, to get there, I lost a total of 8kg of lean muscle while chasing my “dream” of being skinny. I did tons of cardio and HIIT

Jolyn Nickole Chia: Save some love for yourself

Body image has always been a struggle for me since I was young. Standing at a mere 152cm, I’ve always wanted to compensate for my lack of height by trying to lose more weight. Unequipped with any knowledge of losing weight and of course, catching onto the social media bug, I started trying to lose weight by overexercising and undereating. I remember the 30-minute treadmill run almost daily after work, followed by workouts for another 1.5 hours. I would then go home

Michelle Lim: Live life on your own terms

For as long as I can remember, I struggled with my self-esteem. Because of my height and my build, I was always referred to as the “big one” and it made me very self-conscious. I couldn’t fit into the same types of clothes that my friends could and I always felt like a giant amongst my friends. I hated the way I looked and I desperately wanted to lose weight and (miraculously) become shorter. I thought that I didn’t deserve happiness because I didn’t fit the

Michelle Yang: Believe in yourself even if no one does

I was never a thin or skinny girl. My heaviest weight was 96kg at the age of 13 years old and I was considered obese. Everyone called me all kinds of names linked to fatty or piggy and not many people wanted to be my friend due to how I looked (because of how fat I was), hence I had very few friends. Boys I liked never liked me back and when I eventually had one, he left me for a skinnier and prettier girl. There was even a period of time where my own

Netty Lie: Love your imperfections

I have always been a tall slender girl for my entire life and my weight had never exceeded 60kg in the past. Then I got married and pregnant in the same year and gained a crazy 25kg in my first pregnancy. I remember being a shocking 85kg super huge pregnant mama at the end of my pregnancy and it was a bit depressing. Luckily I managed to lose 20kg of that weight when my son turned 8 months old by almost exclusively breastfeeding him. I went on to conceive my

  • Tinee Dino (@tineedino) didn't like looking at numbers, so he used a plain strip of paper to measure his waist. He needed a longer one this week.

  • We wanted to highlight our ROCKstar of the Month (April), @keanenlee, again. He submitted his story through ROCKshare early last year, but took some time to find the courage to join us. He finally came to @rockrunnerssg towards the end of last year and has been coming back ever since. •
He said, "...my life took a change for the worst when I was 15. My grandmother passed away on the day she was due to be discharged from the hospital. It was devastating news that sank my world.
•
To put things into context, my brother and I lived with our grandparents since we were babies, while my other two siblings stayed with my parents in the opposite block. Thus, this piece of news hit me really hard and I was very affected.
•
Although I managed to pick myself up from this, nothing was the same anymore. The relationship between my grandfather and parents started to drift apart. Being stuck in the middle, the kids weren’t having it any easier as well."
•
Keanen went through even more trials and tribulations in his life but he eventually overcame them. He added, "Without you my ROCKfam, I would never have expected myself to step out of my comfort zone and share my story with everyone. To everyone else who is reading this, I do not know of the battles you are fighting in your life, but I hope that you press on and in the process, remember to love yourself and those around you a little more. Everyone fights, no one quits."

  • It's not about the number on the scale - it's how you feel. // #repost @saraweeyogic 
10 years apart and 10 kilos heavier. 
I'm not here to say I look better now than I did when I was 21; there's nothing wrong with my body in either photo. I'm just here to say that the weighing scale is just one of many factors that a play a part in your journey to getting fit, so an increased number does not equate to an increased size in your physical body. 
And don't be scared of developing muscles, we at @rockthenakedtruthsg think they're awesome!

  • Tinee Dino (@tineedino) made sure he had his sweatband off before weighing himself this time. He hoped the result would be drastically different.

Someone said to me the other day, "When I saw you, you don't look like the type who exercises... but actually you're decent on the bike." It was an honest comment not meant to wound, but it also reflects how people still hold the stereotype that athletes should be of a certain body type. •
I wouldn't call myself an athlete; this is a lifestyle to me rather but I DO exercise... quite a bit... I know I don't have toned arms or slim legs, I don't have abs etc; but do we need those before we can exercise? We shouldn't be exercising to get those either! I just like working out!! •
I wasn't offended, but it reminded me of how people are so quick to judge. Life isn't about how we look; it's about how we choose to live it. And I'm damn proud of my body, curves and jiggles and all, for taking me through the pain on this crazy tri journey! #cheryltayworksout #rockthenakedtruth #loveyourselfeveryday #loveyourself #youarebeautiful #iambeautiful #bodyconfidence #beingyou #selfconfidence #motivation #inspiration #rockfam
