Blogger de fitness partilha toda a verdade acerca das fotografias que vês no Instagram!

Vamos ser francos: o Instagram não é a vida real. É uma realidade distorcida onde todos tentam mostrar o melhor de si. Muitas pessoas passam horas a tirar imperfeições e a escolher o filtro perfeito antes de publicarem o que quer que seja na rede social.

Assim, é sempre bom saber o que é que algumas das pessoas mais em forma e conhecidas do Instagram têm a dizer em relação a isto. Anna Victoria tem 1.3 milhões de seguidores no Instagram e partilha diariamente as fotos das suas refeições e dos seus planos de exercícios. O seu objectivo é motivar as pessoas para elas fazerem pela vida e ficarem em forma.

Para além disso, Anna ainda partilha fotos suas (incríveis, diga-se de passagem), bem como fotos de transformações físicas de clientes seus. Agora, a blogger colocou uma foto que não a favoreceu nada, tudo com um propósito…

Lighting. Is. Everything. 99% of pictures you see on social media are taken in the best possible lighting and that ain't no accident 💁 so when I got into the elevator with the lighting on the right, I zoned in on the cellulite on the back of my arms. Yes, cellulite on your arms is a thing! I've had it since the beginning of my journey and while it's lightened up since then, it's still not totally gone… because I'm human. Seriously, girls, stop thinking you're the only one with cellulite and that it's some kind of disease! Yes, it absolutely can be reduced through healthy diet, exercise and proper water intake, but another component which you can't control is genetics, and just being human. It's not bad to want to reduce the sight of cellulite just like it's not bad to want to lose weight and feel more confident overall, but don't set out to lose weight JUST to have less cellulite. It can be a cherry on top of all the other amazing benefits. If you ask me how to reduce the appearance of cellulite, my answer will be: healthy diet, regular exercise and proper water intake – that's it. I will not suggest creams or wraps or whatever else the current fad is because those are only short term fixes (IF that..) and perpetuate the idea that health/results can be found in a bottle/package. So, do I love the look of my arms on the right? No, but I don't hate it or myself for it, either. And you shouldn't either ❤️ #fbggirls #realtalk #cellulite #realstagram www.annavictoria.com/guides

Na publicação, Anna diz: “Luz. É. Tudo. 99% das fotografias que vês nas redes sociais são tiradas com a melhor luz possível, nada é por acaso”.

“Quando entrei no elevador com a luz do lado direito, fiz com que todos conseguissem ver a celulite que tenho nos braços. Sim, a celulite nos braços existe”, escreve a blogger.

Ela encoraja todas as pessoas a gostarem de si como são e a não se deixarem iludir pelos corpos perfeitos que vêem no Instagram, porque muitas das vezes as suas imperfeições estão escondidas. É tudo uma questão de perspectiva!

Me 1% of the time vs. 99% of the time. And I love both photos equally. Good or bad angles don't change your worth ❤️ I recently came across an article talking about how one woman stated she refuses to accept her flaws, because she doesn't see them as flaws at all. I LOVED that because it sends such a powerful message that our belly rolls, cellulite, stretch marks are nothing to apologize for, to be ashamed of, or to be obsessed with getting rid of! As I'm getting older, I have cellulite and stretch marks that aren't going away, and I welcome them. They represent a life fully lived (for 28 years so far :)) and a healthy life and body at that. How can I be mad at my body for perfectly normal "flaws"? This body is strong, can run miles, can lift and squat and push and pull weight around, and it's happy not just because of how it looks, but because of how it feels. So when you approach your journey, I want you to remember these things: I will not punish my body I will fuel it I will challenge it AND I will love it 💗💗💗 If you're following my page, you're a part of helping me spread this message and creating this movement – thank you. #fbggirls #realstagram www.annavictoria.com/guides

Just a lounging selfie 🤗 no makeup or hair done, not posing (and no sticking out either). I'm not sharing this because I think I look bad, or because tummy rolls are bad, or because cellulite, messy hair or no makeup is bad. None of those things are bad or imperfect. They are NORMAL. – I'm sharing this because I just received an email from a 16 year old girl that said I am the only person she follows that actually made her feel good about herself. That even though she's not particularly unhappy with her body, that seeing endless perfect photos started to make herself compare, poke and prod at her own body. The impact social media has on young girls and their self-esteem is an issue I feel very strongly about and if me posting one casual, non-posing, non-done up photo can help a young girl (or man, or anyone of any age!) feel better about themselves, then I'm happy to put myself out there. – Some will look at this and say "what's the big deal?" If it doesn't resonate with you, that's ok. I just ask that you think of those who it does help before firing off with negativity because you don't "get" it. So when we live in a society that profits from your insecurities, be a rebel and LOVE yourself. Love your body at every angle and don't ever be ashamed of being human, of struggling, or hey, even of loving the crap out of yourself!! 🤗 We need more girls who are wildly confident and loving every bit of themselves and shouting it from the rooftops. Show young girls it's not only okay but necessary to be confident, strong young women, "flaws" and all. #fbggirls #realstagram www.annavictoria.com/guides

A blogger ainda escreveu: “Estou a partilhar isto porque recebi um mail de uma rapariga de 16 anos a dizer que eu sou a única pessoa que ela segue que realmente a faz sentir bem com ela própria”.

“Apesar de ela não se encontrar particularmente insatisfeita com o seu corpo, ver aqueles fotos ‘perfeitas’ das modelos do Instagram fez com que ela se começasse a comparar com elas…”, disse Anna Victoria. Grande atitude!
