Llega el verano, y con él Instagram se llena de fotos más retocadas que la cara de Camilo Sesto. Instagramers, blogueras de moda, señores de Burgos y hasta tu tía la del pueblo, todos quieren estar estupendos para obtener muchos likes, y recurren a las artimañas más inverosímiles para conseguirlos. Te cuentan hace 30 años que la autoestima de una persona podría variar según los corazones que le dieran desconocidos tocando una pantalla de un teléfono y no te lo crees.
Pero hay una mujer que ha dicho basta, y en su perfil de esta red social se ha propuesto destapar todas las “trampas” que hacen las que siempre salen perfectas en las fotos. Imre Çeçen, una bloguera de fitness holandesa, ha publicado dos fotografías iguales pero a la vez distintas. En una se ve la típica imagen perfecta para Instagram y recibir muchos “me gusta”; y en la otra lo que sería la realidad.
Ni que decir tiene el daño que estas trampas causan en muchas de las seguidoras adolescentes de estas influencers, que piensan que tener ese tipo de cuerpo –totalmente falseado por los retoques fotográficos– es lo normal.
‼️DIFFERENT KIND OF “KEEP IT REAL”‼️ I know some people are all done with the “keep it real” pictures so I thought I’d try a new one I find this one kinda hilariouschilling by the pool instagram vs real life . Anyone familiar with the concept of having all “normal” legs when you’re standing but as soon as you sit down they transform into huge piles of meat? Why is it that those 2 sticks we use to walk expand to the size of Texas whenever they touch a chair? . This is the most NORMAL thing ever yet us girls seem to be so self conscious about it Hello! Your legs are being pushed against a surface, they are supposed to expand! This doesn’t mean you’re fat Even muscle will just look like a huge shapeless pile of meat when there’s no flexing involved If you don’t want your legs to expand maybe invest in stone legs!⛰⛏ I’d choose marble ones . We’ve just lost touch with reality because on the internet all we see are those freaking hot dog legs I am guilty of posting those too! Yet even I wondered on my last vacay why my legs were so “big” when I sat down. . Thought I’d take a good comparison pic and I’m pretty sure I’ve got a hernia now Creating that thighgap & skinny legs feel was real hard I had to arch my back like crazy, hold my legs up (serious ab work was involved) and had to sit on the edge of the pool which caused me to almost fall. Both my camera & I would have drowned in the sadness of insta perfection (I would survive the water though, I can swim!) To people who do sit like this in real life; I admire your core strenght & willpower! . Yep, that’s the truth behind poolside hotdog pics. Truth be told I’d much rather sit like that right pic whilst enjoying an actual hotdog What is your fave poolside snack? Kinda wanted to hold a piece of watermelon whilst taking this but it turns out that’s only for advanced instagram posing I couldn’t hold myself up, flex them abs, hold a watermelon & take pics at the same time Guess I better start practicing for my next vacay! . Ps. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the way my legs look in the pic on the right. Just showing you the difference! vs = both yummy
“¿A alguno de vosotros le suena eso de que las piernas parecen ‘normales’ cuando estamos de pie y se convierten, en cuanto nos sentamos, en una enorme montaña de carne? ¿Por qué los dos bastoncitos que utilizamos para caminar adoptan el tamaño de Texas en cuanto tocan el asiento? Esta es la cosa más normal del mundo, y debemos aceptarla. Está claro: si las piernas están contra una superficie, es lógico que se expandan. Esto no significa que sea grasa.
Hemos perdido el contacto con la realidad porque en internet sólo vemos piernas asombrosamente sexy, y yo soy en parte culpable por haberlas posteado.
Fue realmente difícil. He tenido que arquear la espalda como una loca, mantener elevadas las piernas mientras me sentaba al borde la piscina, por lo que casi me caigo dentro. Tanto mi máquina como yo hemos estado en riesgo de caer en la tristeza de la “instar perfección.”
“GOALS” VS “FATROLLS” To anyone who calls me “goals” or “perfection” when they see that left picture or other pictures of me on insta: just know that if this left picture is your “goal” the right one should be too!!! Both me, both beautiful and only taken minutes apart. So this is actually GOALS VS GOALS!! ✨ . New video is up on my Youtube called “can you get rid of all skinfold & fatrolls?” Make sure you watch it if you’ve been feeling a bit down because whenever you sit rolls show up. Direct link is in my bio! . If instagram was a river and you went fishing the main thing you’d catch would be “flattering pictures” & “flexed bodies” Realise that you only see part of someone when you scroll through their account! . When I look at these pictures I see a beautiful girl in both of them!✨ It took me years though to learn to accept my body the way it is and I’m still learning to love it more every single day!❤ . So why do we mainly post pictures like the left one? I think everyone has their own reason. It could be insecurity but it could also be to show off hard work! . In the end we all need to learn that we are beautiful no matter what! A year ago I would have instantly deleted that picture on the right And now? Do you see that giant smile? It’s me smiling at myself in the mirror. I could see every roll, fold or whatever and thought; “you know what girl? You are beautiful!” ❤️ . Don’t let some rolls hold you back in life! Only avoid going to parties cause you’re at home eating cinnamon rolls, not because of some silly fatrolls! . . Showing you a very realistic shapecheck in my Youtube video without hiding any rolls or folds. Damn even pulling them rolls so hard that they bounce back when I let go of them. Should have slow motioned that part! Would have been hilarious! . Know that you don’t need to lose weight or reach that “goal body” to be beautiful YOU ARE ALREADY BEAUTIFUL! Open your eyes and see how amazing you are! I wanna see you shine! I want you to see your own beauty! Walk to that mirror and tell yourself; I AM BEAUTIFUL!❤️❤️ . (Maybe also tell your mum that she’s beautiful since it’s mothersday!)
PHOTOSHOP Transforming your body using training & diet takes years yet some photo shop only takes seconds. We live in a world with beauty “standards”. I don’t have a tiny waist and huge hips and it always made me feel kinda insecure. Lots of us feel the pressure to look like the people we see in magazines. . And yes some of the pictures we see as “goals” were made with photoshop. But does that mean everything is photoshop? NO! I’m getting real tired of this hype to say that all that’s different from our own body must be photoshop. Guess what? There are people with a body like this right picture. There are people with naturally huge butts & tiny waists. I’m just not one of them. Does not matter though cause I’ve still gotten tons of “photoshop” comments under certain pictures . . Scroll back on my account and you’ll find pics of me showing how much lighting or posture can change your appearance. Lots of people found this difficult to believe so then it must be photoshopped Yes, there’s a filter but the shape of my body has not been altered. Just because something seems unreal to you doesn’t always mean it’s fake . . What you say on the internet has an impact on others. Imagine a girl with a naturally tiny waist and huge butt always getting comments that she uses photoshop even though she doesn’t. That must suck right? Imagine an insecure girl using photoshop to look “prettier”. Commenting that she is “still ugly as fuck” might indeed make her stop using photoshop. She’ll get plastic surgery now . . People will always be doing things we don’t agree with or simply don’t understand. But does that really affect your life? Let’s try to be kind to eachother. Hate won’t make this world a better place . I know you probably thought that this post would be a rant on how there are “idiots” using photoshop but it isn’t. Guess what? In real life you will also come across people who seem “perfect”. And fuck, that’s not photoshop. Work on your selfconfidence and know that you are gorgeous too! Someone elses beauty is not the absence of your own. As long as you are happy being you it shouldn’t really matter what others are doing! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!❤
THE DIFFERENCE LIGHTING CAN MAKE!Do you ever feel pretty happy with your body one moment, but then you see yourself in different lighting and suddenly those happy feelings fade away and insecurity hits you? NOT NECESSARY AT ALL! . Let me tell you one thing; it’s 100% normal that your body looks different when the lighting changes. It happens to all of us since we simply can’t bring that “perfect” lighting around with us. The reason why it seems like all “insta models” do look “amazing” all the time is just cause they only post pictures with lighting that they like♀️ . I like my body equally in these pictures, simply cause both are my body and both are beautiful Ok except for the fact that my eyes make me look like a demon on the left It’s probably cause I’d died from flexing too hard . I used to get upset if my abs didn’t show in pics but now I know it’s just simple physics. In the left picture there’s an artificial light shining so bright that most shades dissapear on the right there’s only natural light leaving room for shades which give that definition . Whether or not your definition will show is all about the brightness and angle of the light source!!!☀️ . Know that your body is beautiful in all lights, all shapes, all colors and just all everything! Own your body for it’s the only one you’ll ever have!❤ . Oh and for the caption obviouses; yes these are different pictures but they were taken at the same time of the day. I’m flexing in both and my pose is the same. As far as it’s possible to stand exactly the same way though Sadly I don’t have an assistant so I really did have to move myself to turn on that light ♀️ . Anyway, to all my lovely girls who think they need to be perfect all the time; YOU ALREADY ARE! Abs or no abs, big butt or small butt, tiny or tall, you are beautiful!❤ You don’t need that perfect lighting GO SHINE YOUR OWN LIGHT!✨ WHO’S READY TO SHINE?? TAG YOUR SHINE BUDDY!
