Yazmin Zammit Stevens Talks Weight Lifting And Mental Health

Yazmin Zammit Stevens Talks Weight Lifting And Mental Health
Jul 6 2023 Share

Taking to social media, Olympian weight-lifter Yazmin Zammit Stevens opened up about her relationship to her weight, mental health and career in weightlifting.

‘It’s been 1 year since I made the decision to gain weight. I had been cutting weight to fit into a lower weight class for YEARS… cutting is what had to be done to get to where I wanted to be and so I have no regrets at all.’

However, ‘this is a very common situation weight category athletes find themselves in’, and this led to her reaching a bodyweight her body ‘did not like’ and ‘could not function properly’. 

‘Summer 2021, my mental health reached an all time low, with a lot of the cause being my terrible relationship with food. I found that my happiness had completely started depending on what number was on the scale that morning.’

People started to describe her as moody, unsociable and angry, prompting the decision to take a break from weightlifting. Gaining weight felt worse at first, she said. 

‘But eventually I got my period back (after almost 2 years), I started having more energy to meet friends and socialize. I started having more energy to work more too… and most importantly… I started feeling like myself again.’

‘Now I’ll happily go to the gym in shorts and a sports bra and not think twice about it.

I’m so proud of where I am mentally now, and I truly hope it keeps getting even better.

To anyone dealing with anything similar, be patient. It sometimes gets worse before it gets better. I never thought I’d see the day were my thoughts during the day didn’t just surround what I weighed and what I’ll eat’, she concluded.

With a former prison inmate taking to the witness stand at the compilation of evidence of Abner Aquilina, the court heard how the accused planned on harming his ex-girlfriend before he went on to murder Paulina Dembska in January 2022. 

The former inmate admitted to feeling tormented for weeks on end after having shared a cell with Aquilina for a month, with the latter reportedly boasting, laughing and joking about what he did to Paulina. 

It was revealed on court that Abner would recount the details each time someone new was admitted to the Forensic Unit he was being held in. 

The court heard how Abner changed his mind because he feared his ex girlfriend’s father would kill him if he harmed her. Despite never mentioning her by name, Abner then went on, the court heard by the witness, that he targeted “a girl who was feeding cats in Sliema”. 

The court also heard, Times of Malta reported, how Abner bothered the inmates playing with his private parts and his intention to kill his lawyer.
