The 200-Pound Club: Women Who Redefine Weight

When it comes to men’s and women’s weight, there are certain myths that we tend to perpetuate. Like, men who are over 200 pounds need to look like this or that to be fit and a woman must be under 200 pounds and/or tall or she’s fat — plain and simple, right? Well, wrong! There are a growing number of women who are proving that your scale doesn’t determine if your healthy or not. Take a look at these beautiful women who are taking social media by storm and proving that healthy comes in all sizes–even the over-200 size.

I’m sure some of you would not believe 3 months ago I had my umbilical hernia repaired. My stomach was swollen and looked about 5 months pregnant. I could not train for 2 months and was left with 4 small incisions on the left side of my abdomen. I could barely stand up straight for a week but I pushed through. I’m so glad I did it. Many of you could see my hernia in my pictures because it was the size of a small baseball. Twin pregnancy left me with a hernia. I carried my sons until 39 weeks until my scheduled c-section. My advice to you is don’t play with your health! Due to my heavy lifting, my hernia could have ruptured at any moment. There were times that I was bent over in pain from my hernia. If it’s giving you problems please get it fixed. I waited until my twins were 4 because I could go without picking them up for more than several weeks. I hope this helps someone out there.” ======================================== (photo credit: Meitai Instagram) Meitai (Babs Escobar) 206 pounds Instagram: @meitai (photo credit: Meitai Instagram) (photo credit: Meitai Instagram) Meitai says: “More cardio isn’t always the answer.
