9 Fitnessmodels zeigen, wie fake Instagram ist

Man sollte nicht immer alles glauben, was man sieht.

Das sind alles keine «Vorher-Nacher-Bilder» – zwischen den Aufnahmen liegen nur 30 Sekunden.

🚨 This is not a transformation photo 🚨 This week I've decided to do the 30 second transformation photo. These pics were taken second apart this morning. On the left my posture is poor, I'm pushing my belly out as far as possible, I adjusted my bottoms to show my gross, unsightly and horrid love handles. These are often concealed by my high waisted pants and bottoms that do fit so much better now. As much as it pains me to showcase these, it also proves that my body isn't perfect and that I still have work to do and fat to lose (I'm working so hard to get rid of my love handles and lower tummy fat. Yes it has dramatically reduced already but it still exists and I'm still insecure about it). On the right I'm standing straight and comfortably. I'm lightly flexing and I've adjusted my bottoms to hide my love handles. I'm thankful for bikini bottoms that now fit well and hide these but I'm also trying to show that they still exist quite a bit and that not everything we see meets the eye here on social media. You can show you best angles and hide your flaws but at the end of the day what we chose to showcase is a reflection of ourselves. My body isn't perfect. I still have imperfections and flaws that I'm slowly learning to be comfortable with. I want to be real and honest and open. Yes I've accomplished a lot, but yes my body still has less than ideal days when it doesn't look its best. Fitness and health is not a fix. It's not a destination. It's a lifestyle. If you force your progress you know who you are cheating?! You. You only cheat you. Yes I like to show my best most of the time but I've also realized by not showing my worst that it only harms myself. Being vulnerable and imperfect is hard but lying to yourself is worse. I know I'm hard on myself, it's a flaw on its own, but I'm slowly learning to be gentle and kind but it starts with being truthful to myself and knowing and understanding my imperfections and realizing that, although they exist, they don't define me. I am not a before picture. I am not an after picture. I am not fat nor am I perfect. I'm flawed. I'm scarred. I'm insecure. But I'm learning and I'm hopeful that one day I'll fully love me 💕

Fitnessmodels auf Instagram zeigen darin, wie sie ihren Körper auf den Bildern besser aussehen lassen.

Durch Bauch einziehen…

…oder die richtige Körperhaltung.

Aber auch sie haben ab und zu einen Blähbauch, nachdem sie gegessen haben.

Und ein Bäuchlein, wenn sie sich hinsetzen.

Dutzende Models sind dem Trend gefolgt, und zeigen sich für einmal nicht ganz so perfekt.

Damit wollen sie ihren Followern das Gefühl nehmen, dass ihr eigener Körper nicht schön sei.

**THIS IS NOT A TRANSFORMATION PICTURE**. These two pictures were literally taken a few seconds apart. I've wanted to do a post like this for a while and I've been seeing so many ridiculous posts on social media that I wanted to shed some light on. This is by no means a stab at REAL people's hard work and REAL transformations because I follow so many people who I know have put in the work and it shows. This is really just to show that you can't trust everything you see on social media. I see ads for skinny teas and shrinking wraps or drink this shake and you'll lose 10 pounds in 10 days and sure you may see a before and after that looks legit but I could make myself gain some pounds and look miserable in 30 seconds too by pushing my belly out and having a sad face. It's always easy to get wrapped up in all of the beauty of social media where everyone is working their angles and showing their best self and hey I can be guilty of that too. But just remember it's not always an accurate representation and I hope that along with my selfies I'm showcasing what I'm truly about. I don't believe in quick fixes and 15 day weightloss programs and I will never endorse products that I myself don't truly believe in. All I can promote is hard work in the gym (and that doesn't just mean an actual gym) and the kitchen because that's what will give you the results you want. That is something I can stand behind whole heartedly. #30secondtransformation #dontalwaysbelievewhatyousee #bbgunfilteredbeauty

Here is a different transformation for you all, a thirty second transformation. As many of you may know I suffer from IBS (I mean moan about it enough) so when it comes to ab visibility it is next to nil. I wanted to get real with you all and show you what my core looks like when I do not flex or stand in a flattering position. Social media is a deceiving place and people only show what they want to show and that's fine, I am one of those people, I mean why would I post an image that I do not feel comfortable or happy with. But I am finally ready to show you all how my abs really look 95% of the time. Those who suffer from food intolerances will understand how mentally and physically draining it is. I am starting to become extremely irritated by the bloat which I suffer from daily, even when I eat clean, follow the recommended fodmap diet and take tablets upon tablets to try and curb the intolerance, nothing, no change. I know this intolerance should not stop life yet I find myself letting it. I have started missing social gatherings, as meals out make me anxious incase any ingredients are slipped into the meal which I can not have, I avoid certain outfits so it does not show my bloat and oh avoiding the gym at certain times, you fitties will either laugh, cry or cringe but working out at certain times is a no go as my whizz-poping is at its worse at certain times and I would rather save myself the embarrassment. One day I hope I will understand my body and it's wants and needs but until then I just need to accept my food intolerance and not overthink it (I mean you'd think I would have after suffering from it for the past seven years). The more I overthink it the worse my symptoms become but I am only human. As I stare at my bloat in the mirror I want to give in and drown in a bowl of chocolate but my will power (sort of) kicks in and I remind myself how sore and irritated my stomach already is so instead I sit here in a grump, questioning why I was dealt this card. But, anyway, as I said, I just want to be real with you all. As abs are not 24/7 and social media makes that very deceiving.
