Tammy Hembrow’s team shares why the star doesn’t base her happiness on her weight

Tammy Hembrow has built a fitness empire thanks to her phenomenal physique.

But the Gold Coast-based mother of two, 26, says she doesn’t let the number on the bathroom scales determine her happiness.

The Tamm Fit blog told Yahoo! Lifestyle on Tuesday that scales don’t always accurately reflect a person’s weight, so they shouldn’t be taken as gospel.

She explained that scales aren’t always accurate because a person’s weight can fluctuate throughout the day depending on various factors.

For example, someone can record a heavier weight if they’ve just eaten or haven’t been to the bathroom recently, or if they’re menstruating. 

‘[The number on the scales] doesn’t determine how I feel – in fact it’s irrelevant,’ Tammy added.

It comes after Tammy silenced naysayers on Thursday, shutting down rumours she underwent a Brazilian butt lift to achieve her famously toned derrière.

She proved her curves were ‘built, not bought’ by documenting her fitness journey over the years in before-and-after photos on Instagram. 

Posing in skimpy briefs in a trio of images, Tammy told fans it was definitely possible to build muscle by training hard in the gym and eating well. 

‘Three different stages in my fitness journey over the years. Is it possible to build a booty in the gym? Yes it is, and don’t let anyone tell you different!’ she wrote.

‘Work hard, fuel your body with lots of good food, and you really can make huge changes,’ she added, tagging her health and fitness app.
