As fotos ‘lado a lado’ dessa blogueira são só mais uma prova de como nem tudo o que vem na internet é real

Aquele corpo sarado de Instagram pode ser tão falso quanto a capa das revistas. E quem fala abertamente sobre isso não somos nós, mas sim diversas blogueiras e Instagramers que decidiram mostrar o que há por trás dos filtros. A britânica Chessie King é uma das influenciadoras que optou por mostrar que nem tudo o que vemos nas redes sociais é real.

Chessie é sarada, está sempre de bom humor e já soma mais de 250 mil seguidores na rede. Ela também é responsável pelo programa de treinamento fitness para casais The Couple Bible. A blogueira decidiu recentemente usar o seu poder de influência para mostrar que há muito planejamento e edição por trás de cada foto perfeita que vemos no Instagram.

Com fotos lado a lado, Chessie mostra que ser diva não é apenas estar sempre malhada e com um sorriso no rosto. Na verdade, grande parte da beleza de suas fotos está na seleção das imagens postadas, no ângulo e na luz certa para cada fotografia.

Ever sat on the floor like the right photo, looked down at your belly & thought 'yuk'? ?? I have… a million times. But over the past year, with the help of Instagram & 'the real talk' I've learnt it's actually completely & utterly normal. As the gorge goddess @imrececen stated, very very wisely… you are beautiful no matter what ?? We all get sucked into the trap of wanting to 'look good' but do we ever stop & think… will it actually make me a better person? Will my friends love me more if I've got a six pack? Will I get promoted at work if I've got a thigh gap? There's a difference between looking good & feeling good. Working out should make you feel like a better person, it should make you feel like a superhero, it should make you appreciate your body more & therefore make you want to take care of yourself. I train super hard because I absolutely love it, I lift weights because it makes me feel strong & I take the time to look after myself… but I still have a tum when I sit down. That tum ain't going nowhere, no matter how hard I work, sweat & train. You can choose how you feel, you have the power to think positively so let's say goodbye to all of those negative words you call yourself & hello to feeling proud of your body ?

As fotografias postadas pela jovem estão sempre acompanhadas de mensagens de positividade e aceitação corporal. Ela também conta seus truques para que as fotos sempre pareçam melhores, como a escolha de uma área menos iluminada para disfarçar as celulites ou roupas com cintura alta para não mostrar o inchaço abdominal.

LET'S TALK. Ever bent your back in half to try that 'booty' pose you see all the fitnessgrammmmers doing?! Ever done it & realised your ? looks absolutely nothing like the perfect smooth peach you see in their photo? The left photo is in a very 'flattering' darker light, the right is what my beeeeehind ACTUALLY looks like… bumps, lumps & the real stuff. Neither photos have a filter or have been edited at all, they're both in the same room just different areas in my living room! Instagram is FLOODED with the left photos when actually we should be drowning in 'the real life booty' pictures. It is something I'm so so passionate about & it frustrates me daily how some people with such a huge responsibility, use Instagram to 'show off' their lives, their 'perfect' bodies & create this unachievable life. Instagram is a platform to find inspiration & motivation but it is also the modern way of talking about issues, real life sh?t & to build a community of people that know they are not alone in any aspect of life. I used to be so scared of wearing shorts & felt so so uncomfortable BUT I workout 5-6 times a week, I eat very well & I will ALWAYS have the bits you can see on the right photo, my 'second bottom', the darker bit underneath my cheeeeeky weekys ?. Both are 'real' they're just showing different parts of 'reality' but which one is 'goals'… the right one SHOULD be ?

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT… @gracefituk & I are expecting ???? Joking, I'm just super duper bloated AGAIN. These photos are literally a second apart & what I really wanted to share with those that do suffer from bloating is YOU ARE NOT ALONE. It's so sore & uncomfortable & sometimes leaves me unable to actually walk because I'm bent over in agony. But people see the right way more than they see the left. I could've just posted the right photo with the life saving @NikeWomen @JDwomen leggings that suck EVERYTHANKK IN but no, I was reaaaallly struggling & wanted to show you what I was reaaallly feeling. My top tips for bloating, because boy has it happened enough to talk from experience ?? • If you can, get into child's pose, or cat/cow. Let that tummy hang out. • Drink peppermint tea, but don't down it all in one. Just little sips ☕️ • Wear loose clothes, having tight high waisted is the worst & makes you feel even more self conscious about it • Avoid alcohol or any thing too heavily spiced/flavoured. Just stick to simple, easily digestible foods • Remember it will go down, it's horrible at the time & can change your mood but after a good nights sleep & all the above. You'll be feeling back to normal ? Sending all my love to my fellow 'bloaters'… we're just prepping our minds for when we are actually preggerssss… it's a trial membership every time it happens! ??

As pessoas postam a melhor foto de diversas que tiram… Eu sei que se fala muito disso hoje em dia, mas isso me ajuda bastante também. Se você vê uma foto sua em uma luz ‘ruim’ ou um ‘ângulo desagradável’, lembre-se de quão linda você é e de que você é livre para parecer assim. Nós não somos feitas para ser Barbies com uma aparência perfeita 24 horas por dia, nós somos feitas como seres humanos que se sentem bem 24 horas por dia“, diz a legenda de uma das fotografias.

??|?? Left photo: Favourited out of the 8 taken & posted. Right photo: Immediately deleted & forgotten about. Both photos unedited & seconds between them. I do so many of these but this one is my scariest & most exposing so far. I was going through my recently deleted folder ready to 'delete all' but saw the right photo & recovered it. I felt this sense of guilt that I'd deleted it & posted the left one. A year ago I would've been left feeling so unhappy by how I look on the right & deleted it forever like it never happened but it was a huge reminder for me today that Instagram can be such a 'perfection trap'. I'm clearly super happy in the right one after @brontekingg had cracked a hilarious joke, I don't hate it but the lighting isn't 'flattering' nor is the way I'm holding my body or the angle of it but it's ME. Both of the photos are me ?? I am proud of how I feel about my body looking at these photos. I feel like I look healthy in both & look after myself but also live without controlling myself like I have done in the past. So your Monday Motivation all the way from Singapore: People post the best photo out of a bunch taken… I know it's said a lot these days but it helps me a huge amount too. If you see a photo of yourself in 'bad' lighting or an 'unflattering angle' just remind yourself how beautiful you are & that you're ALLOWED to look like that. We were not made to be Barbie dolls who LOOK insanely good 24/7, we were made to be humans who FEEL insanely good 24/7 ?

We've all seen hundreds of these but they really do help me 1. Be honest with you & 2. Feel body confident in myself ?? I'll let you into a little secret… @mathewlcarter was snapping away like the amazing boyfriend he is & I stopped half way through to say I really felt uncomfortable. He asked why & I said I just feel like my legs look chunky. You see so many girls on their tiptoes 'posing' & I'm guilty of it too. It makes your legs look leaner & longer… but in reality, yes I am nearly 6 foot & I'm lucky to have long legs, but they are still the part of my body I feel conscious of. I know some of these 2 photo 'posing' 'natural' posts are done wrongly & they actually make you feel worse about your body, but a lot are done in the right way & really help me. Even though I preach body confidence & 'embracing the wobble' I still have moments where I feel like I want to hide my legs… but what's different is how I deal with it. I give myself a little prep talk & shake off that negativity & remind myself what they do for me! They carry me round every day & are strong mother f??kers. I then just stopped 'posing' & smiled the biggest smile I possible could & it completely changed my mood. It's okay to find your 'pose' you feel comfortable in in photos, the tiptoe, the hip to the side, the one leg in front of the other… but it's even better to feel comfortable just standing flat foot on the ground, smiling like the grinch ??

I want you to do something for me this evening. Try the 'instagram booty pose' in the closest mirror to you… Put your hand up if you have 'life handles' like me in the right ?? I've preached before & I'm not going to stop anytime soon… these bits are the parts of your life that you love. The nights out with your friends, the family pack of popcorn you didn't share, the seconds/thirds/fourths of Sunday roast with your family… the FUN in your life, the memories ? Yes I can show you ma ? & cover up the squishy bits but I also want you to know that you're not alone & it is OKAY to look like the right ?? I'd much prefer to look back on my life when I'm old & wrinkly knowing I had allll the fun compared to having the most boring stories 'but at least I didn't have rolls when I bent back for that booty pose'!

No matter what shape, size, height you are… never ever apologise for wearing a bikini ? The way you hold yourself speaks a thousand words. It changes how you look & how you feel. Shoulders back, chest open = confidence. Even if you're not feeling super comfortable, this posture oozes 'I'm slaying this bikini' Hunched over, slouchy = 'sorry I'm wearing this, I shouldn't be' YES YOU SHOULD. After so many questions since Ibiza bikini photos, I've filmed my top tips for SLAYING YOUR BIKINI ? I want you to try something for me now. Whether you're standing or sitting. Roll your shoulders forward & let that belly hang out. Notice how it makes you feel. Now, open up that chest & pull those shoulders back. You've grown a few inches & how do you feel now? Body confidence is a feeling, it's something you slowly find when you start thinking a different way. It's not just about 'losing a few pounds' or 'dropping a dress size'. With summer holidays coming at you like a rocket, I want to help you feel like the GODDESS YOU ARE in every outfit, bikini or you're favourite dress ??

High waisted ?: Gives the illusion of a smaller waist ✔️ Increases body confidence ✔️ Good for those 'bloated' days ✔️ Low waisted ?: Reveals the 'life handles' ✔️ Nowhere to hide ✔️ For those days you feel like a superwoman ✔️ I only ever used to wear high waisted bikinis, I felt so self conscious in anything low waisted… But now I wear both depending on how I feel (maybe not a rolled down high waisted like the right photo as it squeezes everything up!) Find styles that suit YOU & your body, the first step to body confidence on holiday is feeling comfortable in your bikini. So as I've said before, try on loads & loads of different styles in your living room, dance around in them & see which one you feel most like Wonder Woman in because you DESERVE to feel amazing ??

Let's talk about the "Bikini Bod"?… a phrase that gets thrown around more than I eat popcorn (& dats a ridiculous amount) ?? What even is a 'bikini bod'… both of these photos are me in a bikini & my 'bod' so therefore these are both 'bikini bods' RIGHT?! So obviously you always feel better in the morning, we all do. Especially on holiday when you know you've got to be in a bikini all day. I was snapping away this morning feeling fressssh… but some things are just out of our control when you're away, like foods that make you bloat. We had loads of yummy fresh juices & smoothies for lunch but my tummy did not like it… clearly. I could've just posted the left photo when I felt good but that's just not fair, I want to show you what reaaallly happened. You can work hard in the gym & eat super duper healthy in the lead up to your summer holiday for that 'bikini bod' but… for those who suffer from bloating like me, you can't really stop it when you're abroad! You are not alone if this has happened to you. It makes you feel horrible & it really knocks your 'body confidence' but do not stress about it or get upset, definitely DO NOT let it affect or ruin your holiday. Your holiday is so much more than just how you look in your bikini… & everyone else is so worried about what they look like they won't even notice if you're standing by the pool cradling your bloated belly. Holidays are for relaxing, exploring & spending proper time with your favourite people… do not get wrapped up in 'looking good in your keeni' ???
