There’s a lot of posts about how most fitspo pictures are extremely photoshopped, and I think it’s great that people are spreading the word on that. But can we also talk about how the models are usually posing in ways that are just uncomfortable and unrealistic for real life? This applies to regular peoples’ progress photos and before/afters as well. Now, I totally understand standing in a flattering pose—it’s normal to want to look your best, and I do the same. But when you look at other people’s photos, remember that they don’t look like that all the time. In the top left photo, as well as the one right below it where I’m sitting, I’m sucking in and flexing as hard as I can. I’m not even breathing. Um, who walks around like that all day? No one. A picture only captures a moment. Not reality. The photos on the right, and the bottom three pictures? That’s reality for me. And it’s way more comfortable. The end.

Sorry for the awful quality :( Been feeling so down about my weight lately, I started new years so it’s almost been a year. But I’m happy with my progress! I’m 5’4” and started around 205-206 lbs. and I was sooooo sluggish and moody and depressed. About a year later (the pic of the right was taken yesterday) and I’m 30 lbs down! Still got 30 more to go but honestly, I don’t mind doing it slowly as long as I get there! I stopped eating bread, rice, pasta, that stuff is delicious but it made me feel so crappy :( Replaced it with quinoa and couscous and more veggies. The steamable bags FTW!! Mininal exercise, I just went for walks around the mall and dance like a crazy person in my living room haha. It is VERY hard, but it is sooo worth it to see some progress. You can’t lost weight wishing for it, you gotta get up and keep moving!!!
