El secreto está en las poses

El secreto está en las poses

No todo el mundo es tan perfecto como parece.

La mayoría de nosotras nos hacemos alrededor de un millón de selfies hasta conseguir la perfecta que podamos subir a nuestras redes sociales. Pero, de lo que no nos damos cuenta es que si la mayoría de las fotos en nuestro feed son imágenes ideales, sin malos ángulos, donde nos vemos sin ninguna imperfección, estamos, de cierto modo, engañando a la gente para que crean que no tenemos defectos.

Por esta razón, un grupo de chicas del mundo fitness han subido fotos a sus perfiles de sus peores ángulos, y están consiguiendo más likes que nunca. Ninguna de nosotras es perfecta, y ellas tampoco, por eso nos encanta esta iniciativa. Aquí te dejamos algunas de nuestras favoritas.

So if you didn''t already see.... this is what''s making news. "30 second transformation photos". So I did one myself.... but not for the reason you think. I think this can send a strong, positive and powerful message. I''ll tell you why. I don''t know what girls are trying to prove by doing this, maybe it''s the whole "don''t flex all the time" thing, but this is what I think. At the end of the day, it''s not about what you LOOK LIKE on the outside, it''s what you FEEL on the inside. Physical change and being strong and fit is important, yes. However, being healthy, happy and confident is actually the most important thing. You don''t have to prove ANYTHING to anyone by the way you look. You don''t have to push your stomach out, make your legs look bigger or stand a certain way to look "bad" to try and make your transformation better. Honestly, every single photo and transformation is amazing. But that happiness won''t last as long as the happiness of health and confidence. Faking a progress photo (or exaggerating one) is only going to poorly affect your mindset. All the BBG community are amazing because they are strong, healthy women... and women are amazing. They have worked DAMN hard to get where they want to be physically and mentally, so they don''t have to prove to anything to anyone. You can be real with your followers, of course, but don''t try and make yourself look bad to prove a point. Who cares if you have had a bad eating day, you look bloated, you have your period, you have a "food baby"... it doesn''t matter. If you FEEL good about yourself on the inside and you LOVE and accept yourself and are PROUD of what you have achieved, then that''s all you need. Post a photo of your body and be proud. Don''t try to overstate your appearance. You should be telling the world how much better you FEEL! Add a big smile in that photo. You don''t need to show anyone how you can stand a special way and look amazing, YOU ALWAYS LOOK AMAZING! Please understand this. People are inspired by YOU because you inspire them with your ATTITUDE towards life. It doesn''t MATTER what you look like.... because your real beauty ....shines from within. www.kaylaitsines.com/app

You girls requested for me to share this after posting on snap last week Picture on the left was taken one day before the wedding and the picture on the right was taken... 2 minutes after! Someone recently said to me that we all have our good angles and we all have our bad angles, so why do we let our bad angles carry so much more weight than our good angles? If you focus on how bad you look in the bad angles, at least focus on how good you look in the good ones too!!

Oh oh it’s magic, you knowwwwww. We all look like this when we sit. Don’t stress about the way your body looks in certain positions. These photos were taken 2 minutes apart! #noedits Thanks for the inspiration, my super human being friend @emilyskyefit

no thigh gap or thigh gap who cares. We all think we want different things and we should because we are all different, there’s no wrong way just be the healthiest happiest for you. I’l be the first one to tell you pics are all about good lightening and angles. Always remember social medias not real life never let anyone else’s pics make you feel insecure about yourself. If you don’t look like her and she doesn’t look like you that’s how it’s meant to be. You are meant to be YOU no one else, your body is your home so love and respect it. When you look after it beautiful things happens #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful

Really wanna commend straight size models @laura.henshaw and @stephclairesmith for using their platforms to promote a positive body image to their followers. The girls started a hashtag #misconceptionkic to highlight how a lot of the imagery we see on Instagram is unrealistic and unattainable. So what is the difference between these two pics? No I didn’t lose five kilos or photoshop the shit out of myself- instead of standing relaxed on the left- I sucked in, pulled up my pants, pushed my hips back and stood with my legs apart to give myself a thigh gap. I even positioned my collar bone to the light to make it stick out more. Crazy. We are all guilty of taking a million photos and uploading one that highlights our supposed “best angles”- myself included. So it’s just a little reminder to not base your #bodygoals on anything you see online. We will only ever see someone’s highlight reel, and not the 50 pics they took to get their “best angle”. Be your own #fitspo

Want to know my secret between image 1 and 2? I can promise you it takes no diet or workout regime- it is simply how I have positioned my body and where my tights are sitting on my hips. A few years ago there is no way I would have ever shared this on social media because of how I look in the first photo - but the truth is I don’t care because I am confident with who I am and know that I am happy and healthy - which is the most important thing. @stephclairesmith and I have just shared a blog post written from the bottom of our hearts about this image (Steph has also done one) and opened up to you about why it can be so dangerous to aspire to an image you see on social media. The blog is called “Misconception” because that is what a lot images you see on social media are. We hope in reading the post it can help you to realize how important it is to focus solely on being healthy to be the best version of you not because you want a “thigh gap”. Please join us in sharing this and share your picture with the #misconceptionkic / Blog post is up on www.keepitcleaner.com.au #RealTalk
