Instagram-bilderna som visar verkligheten
Du har hört det förut men här kommer en viktig påminnelse: Tro inte på allt du ser på nätet!
På Instagram sprider sig utmaningen "#30secondbeforeandafter" som en löpeld. Och deltagarna sätter fingret på någonting väldigt viktigt.
Vi har alla sett dem.
Bloggarna och Instagram-stjärnorna som lägger upp de där perfekta träningsbilder på sig själv. Smala, vältränade & utan minsta skavank.
Kanske försöker även du få till den där perfekta bilden?
På Instagram sprids just nu "motrörelsen" "#30secondbeforeandafter" snabbt.
Så lätt fejkar du en bild
Allt startade med att träningsbloggaren Jess som har kontot @plankingforpizza (japp, hon gör plankan för att kunna äta pizza) la upp en bild på sig själv. Det såg ut som vilken Instagram-bild som helst - nästan.
På den vänstra bilden stod hon avslappnat, utan att dra in magen. På den högra gjorde hon allt för att få till den perfekta kroppen.
Poängen: Det är superlätt att fejka en bild på Instagram.
"På bilden till höger är jag rak i ryggen och spänner magen"
❌THIS IS NOT A TRANSFORMATION PHOTO❌ I've jumped on the #30secondbeforeandafter 🕐 challenge and have decided after much hesitation to share this photo. In the photo on the left I am tilting my pelvis forward, bloating my stomach as much as possible (btw I've got mad bloating skills), hunching my shoulders and slumping. In the photo on the right, I'm standing tall, I'm flexing my stomach, my spine is in proper alignment. Girls, for me this photo really reaffirmed how important it is to take your progress photos with the same posture, lighting, etc. It's not about how big of a transformation you've had. It's not about how skinny you appear to be or how heavy you were when you started your journey. It's not about how you compare to other girls who are on the same week as you. I'll tell you what it IS about: strength, integrity, fortitude--things we strive for each and every day that we wake up and choose to be honest with others, but first and foremost, honest with ourselves about our insecurities, our hopes, our struggles, our triumphs. At first this picture embarrassed me. I wasn't going to share it and I've hung onto it for days debating. I'm doing it now because it's REAL. So jump on the bandwagon or don't--either way, let's work together to keep this community transparent and goal driven! #transformationtuesday #not #honest
***NOT A PROGRESS PHOTO*** I seriously love miss Jera @workoutbean for doing this #30secondbeforeandafter girlllllssssss let's be real. I do NOT have abs. I have them under a little cushion that I love but I can only make them come out when I flexxxx. normally I'm just relaxed and chillllllin and you know what? #inthismomentilovemybody and in every moment I do. I can't believe I'm on week 12 this week!!! and beautiful babes @helbbg @buffs_do_bbg @annadohuynh and @leangreenbbgmachine tagged me for #morningabs and this is it! flexed and relaxed. just a 30 second difference and I love myself in both :)
❌ Notttt a transformation photo ❌ Joining in the #30secondbeforeandafter challenge by the inspirational @workoutbean 😁 Really admire this challenge as it really shows the power and truth behind camera angles, lighting, and poses. honestly, I'm not comfortable showing this comparison side by side but because of this amazing #bbgcommunity and what it does and all the positive vibes it has—I remind myself that we're all in this together, to motivate and to support each other (so YOU keep pushing coz qurl you got thisssss)👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼💕💕💕Left photo: no sucking in, no flexing and standing up straight with feet together—this is my body now (at Week 6) • within 30 seconds • Right photo: still me at Week 6 (hi 👋🏼) but obviously posing, sucking in the tums, flexing a bit and feet apart. My personal goal is to feel good and confident about my body in a stance like the left photo. I have a long wayyy to go (and it's gonna be a bumpy road since it's Christmas Holidays 🎉) but I'll get there someday 😊
⚡⚡️⚡⚡️️️JOIN THE CHALLENGE! Use hashtag #30secondbeforeandafter ⚡⚡⚡️️⚡️️ 🕐 these photos were taken seconds apart 🕓 this is NOT a before and after. Yesterday I saw a post by Becky (@strongisthenewskinny94) comparing two photos of her, side by side, taken only seconds apart and it really got my attention. I decided to do the same thing. In the photo on the left, I'm sticking my stomach full on out, my shoulders are hunched forward, and my legs are pushed together. On the right, I'm standing up straight and in a more flattering pose and flexin' those abs ✋🏻 we create our own reality, we decided what show others, and we believe what we allow ourselves to believe. Lighting, poses, environment are all elements that construct this visual and social space of ours. It's fun to show the highlight reel, but especially in relation to the BBG community, I think it's also important to share our lil nuggets of reality even if it's not so glamorous. Balance is key. Let's have fun, be a lil silly, show off dem muscles, and #keepthatshizreal
✨✨ #30secondbeforeandafter ✨✨Inspired by my amazing friend and #bbgsister @thefitnessfootfiend and the beautiful @workoutbean, I decided to post a #keepitreal selfie! NOT a progress pic!! But showing what a big difference posture and flexing can do! I also have the awesome secret ability to push my stomach out to look like I'm pregnant. I do it all the time actually for fun, it's my own form of entertainment hahaha. But in all seriousness, it's no surprise we like to post the best photos/ versions of ourselves online, but that's not the only side to us! I promise you, no one is perfect. We all have weaknesses, and we all have days where we don't have those perfect ab lines, thigh gaps, etc. And you know what, it's about time we show all sides of us! The real side of us. So I challenge everyone to do this tag! And show the world out there how real we really are. #bbg #bbggirls #bbgcommunity #bbgsisters #bbgaustralia #bbgmelbourne #bbgfitfam #melbourne #melbournefitness #melbournegirls #fitnessfamily #fitnesssisters #bikinibodyguide #kaylasarmy #kaylaitsines #sweatwithkayla #bbgmelbcrew #bbgfitfam #bbgaustralia #bbgdreamsquad #fitness #fitnessfamily #fitnesssisters #transformation
🚨 30 second transformation 🚨 I wasn't going to post this as I found it pretty confronting! But then I thought that's a good reason to. There are just 30 seconds between these photos and some adjusting of my shorts! I scroll through so many inspirational pictures of skinny and fit girls who are showing their best photos, it shouldn't but sometimes it gets me down about my own progress. So this serves as a reminder, that every #bbg girl is working extremely hard and you shouldn't be so hard on yourself when comparing to some amazing photos, they may not look that way all the time (or they very much may but you are working on it)!! After my little sulk about these pictures I went and smashed some LISS and my full body workout 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 #thekaylamovement #bbg #bbggirls #bbgcommunity #kaylasarmy #motivation #fat2fit #deathbykayla #transformation #fitfam #bbgfamily #sweatwithkayla #fitness #healthy #healthylifestyle #healthychange #bbgsupport #bbgbeginner #bbgaustralia #30secondtransformation #selfdoubt #staypositive #30secondbeforeandafter
