Hi guys, I am a female mmy muay thai fighter and have been competing for 2 years now. I tend to cut anywhere between 10-15lbs for my fights. The problem is I have struggled with body image issues since I was 12 (I'm now 25). I've always hated scales, but now I have to use them regularly. I hate stepping on them to see where my weight is. Competing in a sport where my weight matters and where my body is constantly changing has been mentally challenging for me. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Any tips on how to be confident with my ever changing physique?
Sports Illustrated article, Julie Kedzie: This is what it feels like to cut weight for an MMA fight. This sounds horrible, like cutting weight is one of the hardest parts of fighting professionally.
