Hannah Bailey Swapped Skinny For Healthy

Hannah Bailey believed being skinny meant healthy – until she altered her view.


Vital stats

Before: 110lb

After: 125lb


When I was 14, I was on a professional triathlon team, swim team, cross-country and track. I did my first marathon when I was 15 and, as a typical high school girl, body image was something I always struggled with.

I was at my lowest weight was after I ran my marathon: I remember never feeling satisfied with how I looked and was lost, wondering where to go next.

The turning point was my junior year of high school. I decided not to go out for any sports that year, because I was feeling burnt out. This is when I first got into lifting.

It took me a good year and a half after than to dive into bodybuilding, and to get over the fear that lifting would make you look bulky.

I used to obsess over the scale and seeing the numbers go up was hard for me to watch. Even though I was making huge changes to my body composition, I let the scale determine my progress.

I started taking measurements and assessing how I felt mentally and physically to realize the amazing progress I was making.
