Introducing the “I lost 10 pounds in 2 minutes”, also known as “the power of the selfie”.
It looks like I’ve been training for months right? Dropped a bunch of weight? Wrong. I took these photos just minutes apart. How?
First off I switched my too-tight, unflattering orange bottoms for slimming black ones that are my size. Let down my hair. Threw on a “I’m sexy and I know it” smile.
Then the pose. I’m standing tiptoe, arm up to stretch my stomach, abs flexed.
The girl on the left is the girl you see out in public. The girl on the right is the one that only exists in a perfectly positioned selfie.
This goes to show that, even without Photoshop, photographs aren’t realistic. You can’t look in the mirror and then at a picture of a model and compare.
Above all, remember not to compare your behind-the-scenes with somebody else’s highlight reel.
Love yourself! Beauty is not a shape or a number or a colour!6 notes
