¿Alguna vez escuchaste hablar sobre la positividad del cuerpo? Este movimiento que celebra los cuerpos reales y naturales tiene en vilo a los parámetros de belleza tal como lo conocemos. Un claro ejemplo es Sara, activista del movimiento, quien a través de su cuenta en Instagram boicotea a la “realidad virtual” que genera imágenes erróneas de lo que nos rodea. Y apunta a la crueldad de la edición y retoques digitales que le hacen a millones de fotos, solo para encajar dentro de lo considerado “bonito”. Porque sabemos que los estándares de belleza todavía matan a muchas niñas de todo el mundo.
Progress photo talk I was taking progress pictures initially, but I took many different photos and ended up wanting to do one of these flexed/posing vs chilling posts (I know they’re done to death but I don’t care cause I love doing them). But anyway, when I started working out I kept thinking to myself “I can’t wait till I’m on week 100, I’ll look so good by then and my progress pictures will be DA BOMB”. But I’m on week 96 now and weirdly felt like I don’t have that much difference between now and week 1 (when my body is relaxed), cause I saw other people doing relaxed poses and had massive differences. But then I realised that I actually don’t care because I shouldn’t feel the need to post a photo to get validation on how hard I’ve worked, it’s this weird mindset I got from having a fitness account and getting comments on photos, where people would judge my progress. I got weirdly obsessed with wanting to please everyone and have no one say anything negative. But it doesn’t matter how long you’ve worked out for, or how much muscle you’ve gained or fat you’ve lost. It isn’t some competition of who can do the most, the quickest. It’s about YOU being healthy and happy! So next time you find yourself comparing yourself to anyone’s photos, seeing how long they’ve worked out or how they look compared to you, STOP. You should be so proud of yourself for being you! We all have different lives and bodies, life isn’t always linear, sometimes we need to navigate through things first, everyone’s journey is unique! Also, as you can see, poses change how you look!!! instagram isn’t reality, It’s a snap of a second into someone’s life. It’s just one photo, please don’t let that ruin your confidence cause you are absolutely remarkable and there’s no point in wanting to be or look like someone else love who you are, it’s a lot easier than trying to please everyone —————————————— #beforeandafter #transformationtuesday #lawofattraction #bodypositivity #lifeisgreat #dowhatyoulove #bootybuilding #progressnotperfection #bodyimage #bikinibody #weightlossjourney #beyou #confidence #selflove #embraceyourself #manifest
El debate por temas tan sensibles como la anorexia y el suicidio adolescente, que se han puesto en boca de todos a causa del furor que ocasionaron series como 13 Reasons Why y To the Bone, hacen que el trabajo de Sara sea tan importante. Con miles de likes y mensajes positivos, la aceptación de nuestros cuerpos tal como son, resulta un proceso que nos puede liberar de presiones innecesarias e injustificadas. Amarnos como somos nos dará la confianza para que nadie nos lastime. ¡Estas son sus 5 reglas!
Dress for your body type You know how you get articles that say “clothing to wear for your body type”? Yeah IGNORE THOSE CAUSE THEY’RE RIDICULOUS. You can wear anything you want no matter what body type. I know they’re meant to be “guides” and not rules, but they do affect the way you judge what clothes make your body “more attractive”. Because of these I’ve hated the way my body looks from the front in dresses or anything tight, because my boobs aren’t big enough and I don’t have an “hourglass” figure. Nobody has an hourglass figure. That’s an object, women’s bodies are not objects. So wear what you want!!! People can judge you all they want for the way you look. There’s no point in listening to them. Cause if you feel good about something, go with it! Life’s too short to constantly care about what people think, do what makes you happy! Live your life how you want, wear what you want, even if you don’t look like everyone else, that’s the beauty of it! You are you, and you are beauty queen Hope you all have a lovely weekend!! —————————————— . . . #lawofattraction #bodypositivity #bodyshape #wearwhatyoulike #lifeisgreat #dowhatyoulove #bootybuilding #bootybuilder #progressnotperfection #bodyimage #sweatwithkayla #bikinibody #vegan #vegansofig #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #weightlifting #selflove #youarebeautiful #fitnessmotivation #screwthescale #weightlossjourney #beyou #beconfident #selfconfidence #embraceyourself #manifest #flaws #confidence
1. “Parece que tener un trasero grande es lo que muchas mujeres quieren actualmente, pero recuerda que no necesitas tener una así para ser hermosa.”
Before food and after food I used to obsessively weigh myself every single day, usually more than once a day. I’d always get upset when the number on the scale went up, even by 0.1kg and would feel like I wasn’t working hard enough or dieting hard enough. And when the scale showed that I lost weight, I thought to myself ‘I can do better’. I’d look at my tummy after meals and was convinced that no one else looks this different after 1 meal and assumed people have flat tummies all the time. But the truth is is that nobody does, everyone looks different after meals. I am flexing as hard as I can in both photos, the first one was taken when I woke up and the second is after a meal and a lot of water. I decided to weigh myself in both photos because I now know that your weight fluctuates constantly throughout the day and wanted to show you guys that weight does not matter!! Please don’t put all your happiness into what a scale tells you. Don’t let that define how you view yourself. Because your weight does not define you. If someone weighs less than you that doesn’t mean they’re a better person. So instead of having a goal weight or needing to lose X amount of weight to feel happy, tell yourself that you are fine the way you are!! Don’t crash diet and over exercise to get to a certain weight, instead find something you love doing and do it because you want to, not because you feel like you have to! And please remember that everyone’s stomachs expand after a meal and you’ll even look different when you suck in/flex after eating, which is completely okay!! They’re normal things that happen to our bodies so you shouldn’t stress about them, most people take photos while they have a flat tummy. So don’t compare that one photo to how you look all the time because it’s unrealistic!! Choose how to define beauty, don’t let others define it for you. —————————————— #screwthescale #bodypositive #bodypositivity #allbodiesaregoodbodies #weightlossjourney #flexing #bopo #bodyacceptance #bodyconfidence #beforeandafter #foodbaby #loveyourselfalways #selfawareness #personalgrowth #affirmation #acceptance #loveyourself #confidenceiskey
2. “Nadie te está juzgando, y aunque alguien te juzgue, eso es sólo reflejo de las inseguridades de aquella persona, no de las tuyas.”
Booty pop I was scrolling through my old photos and came across these photos where I was trying to take one of those sandy bum pics I posted the right one back in January, but the left is the reality behind that photo I still sometimes get a slight pang of sadness and jealousy when I see all the big beautiful bums on instagram and wish I could magically have what they have. Because sometimes I feel like all my booty gains are gone when I take photos where it looks smaller, but then I remember that I shouldn’t compare my body to theirs. I have a great booty and so do they! It’s all about posing/angles and nobody looks like that all the time. There’s nothing wrong with posting a good photo of your booty, you should post it if you feel like it! Just remember that when you’re scrolling through social media and see all the posed bums that you too have a great bum and that nobody looks like that 24/7 It seems like big butts are the thing that so many people want currently. But remember that you don’t need a big booty to be beautiful. All butts are good butts All of our bodies are different and you don’t need a specific body type to fit into what society defines as beautiful!! It’s stressful and so messed up that body parts and types are going in and out of style- before it was being really thin, now it’s having a big booty. That shouldn’t be a thing. It causes so much stress and self hate to people who do not have these things. I know it’s hard but instead of trying to obtain these things, love how you look now. Not how you’ll look if you loose X amount of weight or get a bigger booty. Because trust me when you get to those things you’ll just want something more. Be comfortable in your own skin no matter what angle, posed or unposed, and you’ll radiate beauty! —————————————— . . . #bopowarrior #bootypop #allbodiesaregoodbodies #bootyfordays #bootybuilding #instagramvsreallife #beforeafter #selfconfidence #youareyou #dontchange #acceptyourself #bodypositive #lawofattraction #everyoneisbeautiful #selflove #bepresent #findyourself #dontcare #cellulite #effyourbeautystandards
3. “¡Debes sentirte orgulloso de ser quién eres! Todos tenemos cuerpos y vidas diferentes.”
Thank you I flew to South Africa yesterday and when I landed I saw that I have 100k followers firstly I just wanted to say THANK YOU! Thank you for allowing me to have this platform to spread the body positive and self love message. Thank you for constantly supporting me, which in turn has also allowed me to grow as a person. You guys are the best and I appreciate all your comments and messages so much I just felt like making a little story time post about my instagram journey so far (swipe to see) So this has always been my only instagram, I began posting on here in 2014 with photos of my personal life when I used to have crazy colored hair and would post photos of random things (2014). Then around 2015 I posted my first progress photo after I started doing BBG workouts and decided to keep posting fitness related photos of my progress until late 2016. I don’t think there is anything wrong with posting your progress or having a fitness instagram btw, you should share and show off your hard work! But for me it became less and less of a hobby to post these types of photos and felt like I wasn’t telling the truth by posting these photos all the time because that wasn’t what I looked like 24/7, so I decided to use this platform to post body positive and self love photos and that’s what’s brought me to where I am now. I never imagined that I would be posting my biggest insecurities online but thats how life needed up working out and I love it so much because I love hearing how much it helps people when I share these posts! I hope you guys liked that little story time I’m so excited to see what the future brings! Thank you for reading and I hope you all have a lovely weekend!! —————————————— . . . #enjoythejourney #thankyou #100k #bopo #selflove #positivelife #lawofattraction #fitnessjourney #allbodiesaregoodbodies #youareamazing #bebrave #trustyourself #bodypositivity #staytruetoyourself #behumble #nonegativity #pasttopresent #loveyourlife #dowhatmakesyouhappy #liveyourbestlife #createyourownhappiness #choosehapiness #attitudeofgratitude #liveinthemoment #findyourself #embracelife
4. “Nadie tiene un cuerpo de reloj de arena. Los relojes son objetos, y los cuerpos femeninos no. ¡Vístete de la manera que quieras!”
Bikini body I’m sure we’ve all had that feeling where you’re feeling cute at the beach but then you sit down and all of a sudden feel insecure and don’t know how to sit without your tummy feeling oddly too exposed. The other day I went to the beach and would have slight moments where I felt like people were looking at my tummy and these feelings of insecurity where I wanted to hide my tummy because “it didn’t look good” sitting down. But I realised that I was being silly and ruining my time at the beach and not enjoying it fully just because of this small silly thing. You really shouldn’t feel that way! Everyone looks like this when they sit down! Nobody is judging you and even if someone was then that’s a reflection of their inner insecurities, not yours. You are not fat. We all have fat, especially on our tummies and it’s completely normal. And that fat does not make you worth any less as a person! Nobody has abs or a flat tummy 24/7 when they sit down. Don’t let this idea ruin your time because it’s completely normal! If you want to wear a bikini, then wear it cause life’s too short not to wear what you want!! You look amazing so wear it with confidence and you’ll radiate beauty! —————————————— . . . #bikinibody #bodypositive #lawofattraction #beachtime #insecurities #bodyposi #fitnessmotivation #positiveenergy #manifest #bodyfat #allbodiesaregoodbodies #bodyacceptance #selflove #bopowarrior #allbodiesarebeautiful #fitnessjourney #weightlossjourney #bopo #vegansofig #veganfitness #bbg #positivethinking #positivelife #positivemind #loveyourself #youareenough #youmatter
5. “Puedes ser saludable y tener un poco de flacidez. Es algo absolutamente normal, del que no debes avergonzarse.”
Instagram vs real life If I saw the photo on the left a year ago I would’ve instantly thought so negatively about my body, that all my hard work from working out was non existent, that if someone looked at me they would’ve never thought I’ve been working out for 2 years and think I wasn’t trying hard enough. But the thing is is that all bodies look different. Nobody’s booty looks round and peachy from all angles. Nobody’s body looks the same from all angles. Don’t eat less or miss out on your favorite meals/drinks or over exercise to “look good for a holiday” or to “look good in bikini photos” because there will always be angles that are “unflattering” that might make you feel bad when you see them. Instead workout and eat healthy because it makes you feel good, not as a punishment. Start loving and accepting your body at all angles with all your “flaws”, instead of trying to fit into societies image of ‘beauty’ because that image isn’t inclusive of all individuals, which is so messed up. Don’t hate yourself just because of bad photos, they do not define you as a person. You look the best when you’re living life to the fullest and happiest. There’s no point in missing out on things and stressing yourself out so much. Life isn’t meant to be a competition on who can look the best and we should normalize not having to “look perfect” all the time because it’s a ridiculous concept. You are perfect the way you are —————————————— . . . #instagramvsreallife #beforeandafter #lawofattraction #bodypositive #bekindtoyourself #lifeisgreat #dowhatyoulove #veganbooty #youareenough #progressnotperfection #bodyimage #vegansofig #girlswhoworkout #selflove #youarebeautiful #veganfitness #loa #fitnessjourney #bopo #bodyacceptance #bodyconfidence #effyourbeautystandards #bepresent #justbe #moderation #balanceddiet #staypositive #thinkpositive
Amamos estas reglas que todas deberíamos seguir y hacerlas respetar. Las influencers en Instagram deberían enseñarnos a querernos, a aceptar lo que somos y que no existen cuerpos estándares, sino que cada uno es único y allí radica su propia belleza.
