I’m a tall queen who weighs 195 pounds of sexy so I won’t compare myself to tiny 5’1 girls
THIS gym girl says she doesn’t see anyone who compares to her physique because she’s taller than most fitness fanatics.
The influencer explained her struggles on social media, as she claimed the majority of women’s fitness content featured smaller gym goers.
Lexie Strasser (@lexiestrasser) highlighted the importance of representation in her recent TikTok video.
“Every body is different, but as we always say, representation matters,” Lexie wrote in the post’s caption.
At the start of the nearly 60-second clip, the influencer explained that she was tired of seeing other fitness content featuring women who were “about 115 pounds” and “5’2”.
“Okay, you look awesome,” Lexie said in an effort not to overlook other influencers.
“But what I’m saying is I’m 6’2, [and] 5’1 or 5’2 is literally right here on me,” she added, pointing to a point at her lower chest.
Lexie added that she also weighs 195 pounds and has a body fat percentage of 22%, which is “not a bad” percentage.
All this to say that the large differences in height and weight leave little room for comparison for the influencer.
“But when I try to compare my gains, progress, and physique to people who look like me, I don’t see anyone who looks like me,” Lexie said.
