Sosiaalisessa mediassa voi nähdä paljon inspiroiva ennen ja jälkeen -kuvia, joissa nähdään miten henkilö on laihtunut tai onnistunut treenaamisen myötä muokaamaan vartaloaan haluamaansa suuntaan. Kaikki muutoskuvat eivät kuitenkaan ole totta, koska kuvia pystyy manipuloimaan helposti.
Hyviä kuvia pystyy tekaisemaan ottamalla niitä vartaloa imartelevassa valossa, muokkaamalla niitä ja kiinnittämällä huomiota omaan poseerausasentoon. Nyt 20-vuotias Sara Puhto on näyttänyt omissa Instagram-kuvissaan miten helppo kuvia on väärentää ja luoda ilman, että kuvien välissä on kulunut edes yhtä päivää.
Suomalainen Sara Puhto on julkaissut omalla Instagram-kanavallaan useita kuvia, joissa hän näyttää eri tavoilla miten kuvilla pystyy huijaamaan. Kuvat näyttävät siltä kuin niissä olisi upea muutos, joka on saatu aikaan terveellisellä ruokavaliolla ja treenaamisella, mutta oikeasti kuvien välissä on vain tunteja aikaa tai pelkkä asennon vaihtaminen eroa.
NOT A TRANSFORMATION PHOTO ? These photos were taken 2 hours apart and I'm flexing the same way in both photos. Don't you hate changing room lighting? I went to try on clothes the other day and hated what I saw in the mirror because of the angle of the light. Instead of looking at all my flaws and feeling bad about what I saw, I decided to do a comparison of changing room lighting vs the lighting at home that I'm used to! As you can see it's pretty different! So next time you're out and you come across some ? lighting, just remember you don't look like that, everyone has bad angles in certain lighting. If you feel good in what you're trying on then buy it, you'll look amazing! Don't let that bad lighting get you down!! ?
Standing up vs sitting down ?? I've used to hate having fat rolls and always thought they'd go away completely if I exercised and got less fat on my tummy. But recently I've realised they're not a thing that's gonna go away, and I'm so fine with that! Yes I could eat healthy 24/7 and workout in a way that would get rid of it. But what's the point? I love the way I eat and train now, so what's the point of changing what makes me happy to get rid of some extra fat? It's just rolls of skin with fat and I NEED that little layer! It would be unrealistic if I had 0% body fat on my body! So I just wanted to share what my body looks like when I sit down to show that I also got these rolls, muffin top (whatever you wanna call it ?) and I'm not afraid to hide them ?? Hope you all have a lovely day today, and happy #friyay ?☀️
Not a progress photo ?? Since its #humpday I thought it would be appropriate to post a booty pic ? I thought I'd show my booty from its normal straight leg standing position vs a posed booty pop position ? cause in a world where the Kardashian's bootys are so glorified, we need to remember that the photos we see of them and others aren't always reality. Their butts can't ALWAYS look that big from every angle ? Same goes with photos on Instagram, we see them as goals and think we'll never be able to gain that much muscle or lose that much fat, but what you need to remember is that those photos you see are achievable, you can get to your goals, you can achieve anything with the right amount of determination, patience and effort! Don't think you can't because you're comparing a posed photo of a body to your everyday body. Use them as motivation but don't get too caught up on them. YOU are beautiful and can do anything you put your mind to. I hope you have an amazing day ?☀️
20 hour transformation photo ?? Since it's the day after thanksgiving I thought it'd be appropriate to share this photo ? The first photo was taken yesterday morning after working out, the second was at night after eating a whole bunch of food with my whole tummy relaxed and the third was this morning again after working out ?? I've posted a photo like this before but I just wanted to remind you that it's normal for your stomach to get bigger after large meals and that our bodies don't look the same throughout the day! I know I get pretty bloated looking after I eat a lot and that used to really upset me because I thought there was something wrong with me and that nobody else's tummy looked like this after eating but I realised its just not shown or talked about a lot. So I just wanted to show what my relaxed food baby tummy looks like compared to my empty, post workout tummy. I'm learning to love my body in ALL its forms, not just when it looks lean and toned because I know I don't look like that all day. It's time for me to love and appreciate the body I have and stop striving for "perfection" ☺️ Anyway, I hope you all had an amazing thanksgiving, got some delicious food in and spent quality time with your family and friends!! ?☀️
Body image ?? Recently I've been thinking with a really negative mindset, I'm going to Singapore in 8 days and I had a whole month workout plan for how I'm gonna tone up and look super amazing. The reason why I wanted to do this is cause I'm going to see a lot of people who I went to high school with, who also follow me on here (hi hello how are you guys ?) and I wanted to look good cause I sadly had this negative thought that some people would think something like "why does she look like that, I thought she works out like everyday? Where her abs at??" because I had gained quite a bit of fat while I was in South Africa from eating lots of junk food. Also I'm scared that people will think I look exactly like I look on my posed/flexed photos on my Instagram, which I really don't. But because I've been sick the past week I haven't been able to stick to that workout plan and haven't even worked out for a whole week now which made me feel like I look less toned. I realised that this whole plan and mindset was so horribly silly. I shouldn't care at all what other people think of my body because I've worked so hard to get into this positive mindset of loving my body and not caring what others think. It goes to show how I still do sometimes end up thinking in a very negative way and that I am not always positive and do care how people see me sometimes, because I am only human. I'm just glad I caught myself thinking like this and got myself out of this negative mindset. So here's a photo of me on the left posing, sucking in and doing a fab booty pop ?? vs how I look just normally standing with everything relaxed cause that's what I look like in real life! What I'm trying to say is you shouldn't stress about other people's opinions of your body because at the end of the day it is your body and the only opinion that should matter about it is yours. ☺️ Hope you all have an absolutely lovely #humpday ??
24 hour transformation photo- Christmas edition ??? First photo was taken in the morning after waking up. The second photo was 8 hours after the first and after eating a whole bunch of delicious Christmas food and a having a few drinks. And the third was taken 24 hours after, just after waking up, no workout in between these photos and no flexing/sucking my tummy in. I'm sorry these photos look kind of cringe, they're taken from my least flattering angle ? I know a lot of people are afraid to eat a lot and eat unhealthy when they're working out and trying to lose weight because they think it'll hinder their progress. I wanted to post this photo to show that it's okay if you eat a huuge amount of food because your body will bounce back from it, your tummy will go down but it's also normal to be bloated after a large unhealthy meal because you will have water retention. But it won't ruin your months of progress. It's always good to treat yourself to a meal and not be thinking about fitness and dieting 24/7, life is too short for that, so don't skip out on foods that make you happy. Do not restrict and feel guilty about eating a lot or certain foods. Food is meant to fuel you, not make you upset and fitness is a lifestyle where you will have ups and downs. Nobody has the perfect body all the time. So treat yoself and feel good!! Also never restrict your food or workout for hours after a cheat meal. Don't beat yourself up about it because there's no reason to, you've done nothing wrong. I hope you all had an absolutely lovely Christmas with your loved ones ☺️?
