From Eating Disorder to Ms. Olympia, Elisa Pecini Shares Incredible Transformation

Elisa Pecini shares her transformation story.

Many people who venture into the fitness and bodybuilding world do so with their own unique purpose. For some it may be to get over a relationship. For others it may be a way of taking back lost power. Then there are those whose lives are saved by living the fitness lifestyle. Elisa Pecini falls in the latter category.

Suffering from an eating disorder in her younger years, Elisa Pecini eventually decided to reclaim her health. The avenue for this was fitness and exercise.

Not only was she able to overcome her eating disorder, she also earned the title of Ms. Bikini Olympia in 2019. Elisa Pecini had this to say about her incredible transformation journey.

“Your mind can take you wherever you want. Many do not know, but I already went to the extreme of an illness because I worked my mind to it without knowing that I was sick, I just wanted to go to my limit and be thin. However, after undergoing treatments, hospitalizations I saw that that path was wrong. We made mistakes, but we learned from them and it is through mistakes that we become even stronger and evolve, it would not change the past because it was my base and brought me here. I worked my mind in another way, dedicating myself to the maximum to the sport, and it became my passion, it saved me because it showed me another way, made me evolve and be more mature from an early age👊🏻. I hope that other girls who go through it will see how much they are missing out on life and that they can still get out of this before it’s too late. Sometimes when I remember that time I think, I didn’t eat an egg and today, like so many 😅 thank God 🙌🏻 BELIEVE IN YOUR DREAMS ✨”

Muitos não sabem, mas eu já fui ao extremo de uma doença porque eu trabalhei minha mente para isso sem saber que eu estava doente, eu apenas queria ir no meu limite e ser magra. Porém, depois de passar por tratamentos, internações eu vi que aquele caminho estava errado. Erramos, mas aprendemos com eles e é através dos erros que ficamos ainda mais fortes e evoluímos, não mudaria o passado pois ele foi minha base e me trouxe até aqui. Trabalhei minha mente de outra forma, me dedicando ao máximo ao esporte, e isso virou minha paixão, isso me salvou pois me mostrou outro caminho, me fez evoluir e ser mais madura desde cedo👊🏻. Espero que outras meninas que passem pelo mesmo consigam enxergam o quanto elas estão perdendo da vida e que elas ainda podem sair dessa antes que seja tarde. As vezes quando lembro dessa época eu penso, não comia um ovo e hoje, como tantos 😅 obrigada Deus 🙌🏻.
