Omdat je jezelf niet hoeft 'te bewerken' om perfect te zijn

‼️DIFFERENT KIND OF "KEEP IT REAL"‼️ I know some people are all done with the "keep it real" pictures so I thought I'd try a new one😅 I find this one kinda hilarious🙈chilling by the pool instagram vs real life👙 . Anyone familiar with the concept of having all "normal" legs when you're standing but as soon as you sit down they transform into huge piles of meat?🍖😂 Why is it that those 2 sticks we use to walk expand to the size of Texas whenever they touch a chair?😅 . This is the most NORMAL thing ever yet us girls seem to be so self conscious about it😔 Hello! Your legs are being pushed against a surface, they are supposed to expand! This doesn't mean you're fat🙅🏻 Even muscle will just look like a huge shapeless pile of meat when there's no flexing involved🍖 If you don't want your legs to expand maybe invest in stone legs!⛰⛏ I'd choose marble ones💁🏻😂 . We've just lost touch with reality because on the internet all we see are those freaking hot dog legs🌭 I am guilty of posting those too! Yet even I wondered on my last vacay why my legs were so "big" when I sat down. 😅 . Thought I'd take a good comparison pic and I'm pretty sure I've got a hernia now😅 Creating that thighgap & skinny legs feel was real hard😵 I had to arch my back like crazy, hold my legs up (serious ab work was involved) and had to sit on the edge of the pool which caused me to almost fall. Both my camera & I would have drowned in the sadness of insta perfection (I would survive the water though, I can swim!🙆🏻) To people who do sit like this in real life; I admire your core strenght & willpower! . Yep, that's the truth behind poolside hotdog pics. Truth be told I'd much rather sit like that right pic whilst enjoying an actual hotdog🌭 What is your fave poolside snack? Kinda wanted to hold a piece of watermelon whilst taking this but it turns out that's only for advanced instagram posing😅 I couldn't hold myself up, flex them abs, hold a watermelon & take pics at the same time😂 Guess I better start practicing for my next vacay!💁🏻 . Ps. I don't think there's anything wrong with the way my legs look in the pic on the right. Just showing you the difference! 🌭 vs 🍖 = both yummy🙆🏻

Op Instagram zijn we niet vies van een extra filtertje hier en een mooie pose daar. Stiekem ben je 20 selfies verder als je de 'perfecte' foto hebt. En dan moet 'ie uiteraard nog worden bewerkt. We maken allemaal de realiteit iets mooier om het beste plaatje te krijgen. De Nederlandse blogster Imre Çeçen is daar klaar mee en geeft haar 271.000 volgers advies.

Meer zelfvertrouwen
De Nederlands-Turkse Imre plaatste een foto van haar gebruinde benen op Instagram. Een 2-in-1-foto, waarop links haar perfecte 'hot dog legs' te zien zijn en rechts de realiteit. Onder de foto schrijft Imre: "Waarom worden mijn benen zo immens op het moment dat ze in aanraking komen met een stoel?" (met een lachende emoticon erachter).

Real life vs. Instagram
Imre's antwoord: "dat is de NORMAALSTE zaak van de wereld, en dat terwijl veel meiden er onzeker van worden. Het betekent totaal niet dat je dik bent. We verliezen de realiteit uit het oog door alle 'perfecte plaatjes' op het internet. En ook ik ben daar schuldig aan. Bij het maken van de linker foto kreeg ik bijna een hernia omdat ik zoveel moeite moest doen om mijn benen op te tillen aan de rand van het zwembad. Mijn camera en ik vielen bijna in het water. Yep, dat is de waarheid achter die 'perfecte' foto. En om eerlijk te zijn zit ik veel liever zoals op de rechterfoto met een hotdog in mijn hand dan dat mijn benen eruit zien als de perfecte hotdogs."

Hear hear, Imre
Hoe fijn is het dat alle perfecte plaatjes op het internet eens even worden gerelativeerd. Want worden we er niet allemaal onzeker van? En toch doen we er allemaal aan mee. Tegenstrijdig eigenlijk hè? Het is trouwens niet de eerste keer dat Imre de volmaakte foto's op Instagram met een grote glimlach op de hak neemt. Imre, wij zijn fan van je.

‼️😂OMG I DID A 30 DAY SQUAT CHALLENGE AND LOOK AT THE RESULTS!! 😂😂 (new video is up on my youtube, direct link is in my bio🎥) 💕 . SPOILER: this pic was obviously PHOTOSHOPPED😅 Anyway I do want to share a serious message. What I've noticed is that many girls and women give up on their fitness journey because they don't see huge and quick changes like in this picture. 😶 . I often get messages from girls saying they feel like giving up because they aren't seeing changes yet after 2 weeks. ⁉️2 WEEKS⁉️ I know that results can keep you motivated but we also have to be realistic. Your body won't drastically change in a super short amount of time. Especially not if you're following a plan without understanding what you're doing. 🤷🏻‍♀️ . Yes you can make major changes but that takes patience, hard work and dedication. Remember that if you want to transform your body you need to change your LIFESTYLE! Those "quick fixes" being promoted online usually don't work, are unhealthy or you'll gain back all the weight as soon as you get back to living your normal life. 😢 . You CAN transform your body but to do so you need to UNDERSTAND what you're doing. Do you really want to live THE REST OF YOUR LIFE following some guide or mealplan?? If you understand what you're doing you can easily make a plan which works for you! . A new video is up on my youtube explaining the basics of losing weight, which diet you should follow and if diet is more important than training. Go check it out! Direct link is in my bio. 😘 . I'll make one about gaining weight (growing that booty) too if you're interested! I strongly believe thay knowledge is power. So start learning and become the one in control of your own life! . Don't believe everything you see on social media🙅🏻My pictures have been used too to promote weird pills I didn't use and claiming to have been achieved in a short amount of time. 🙄 Real progress takes time and hard work but you're worth it! You don't need to change though, realise how beautiful you already are!!❤❤ Now get out there and follow your dreams! . Grab your bowl of popcorn cause there will be people who don't read the caption and their comments will be popcorn worhty🙄🍿

"GOALS" VS "FATROLLS" 👀 To anyone who calls me "goals" or "perfection" when they see that left picture or other pictures of me on insta: just know that if this left picture is your "goal" the right one should be too!!! Both me, both beautiful and only taken minutes apart. So this is actually GOALS VS GOALS!! ✨ . 🎥New video is up on my Youtube called "can you get rid of all skinfold & fatrolls?" Make sure you watch it if you've been feeling a bit down because whenever you sit rolls show up. Direct link is in my bio!😘 . If instagram was a river and you went fishing the main thing you'd catch would be "flattering pictures" & "flexed bodies"🐟🐟 Realise that you only see part of someone when you scroll through their account! 👀 . When I look at these pictures I see a beautiful girl in both of them!✨ It took me years though to learn to accept my body the way it is and I'm still learning to love it more every single day!❤ . So why do we mainly post pictures like the left one? I think everyone has their own reason. It could be insecurity but it could also be to show off hard work!👊🏼 . In the end we all need to learn that we are beautiful no matter what! A year ago I would have instantly deleted that picture on the right💔 And now? Do you see that giant smile? It's me smiling at myself in the mirror. I could see every roll, fold or whatever and thought; "you know what girl? You are beautiful!" ❤️ . Don't let some rolls hold you back in life!🙅🏻 Only avoid going to parties cause you're at home eating cinnamon rolls, not because of some silly fatrolls! . . Showing you a very realistic shapecheck in my Youtube video without hiding any rolls or folds. Damn even pulling them rolls so hard that they bounce back when I let go of them. Should have slow motioned that part! Would have been hilarious!😂😂 . Know that you don't need to lose weight or reach that "goal body" to be beautiful🙅🏻 YOU ARE ALREADY BEAUTIFUL! Open your eyes and see how amazing you are! I wanna see you shine! I want you to see your own beauty! Walk to that mirror and tell yourself; I AM BEAUTIFUL!❤️❤️ . (Maybe also tell your mum that she's beautiful since it's mothersday!)🙈

🚫PHOTOSHOP🚫 Transforming your body using training & diet takes years yet some photo shop only takes seconds. We live in a world with beauty "standards". I don't have a tiny waist and huge hips and it always made me feel kinda insecure. Lots of us feel the pressure to look like the people we see in magazines. . And yes some of the pictures we see as "goals" were made with photoshop. But does that mean everything is photoshop? NO! I'm getting real tired of this hype to say that all that's different from our own body must be photoshop. Guess what? There are people with a body like this right picture. There are people with naturally huge butts & tiny waists. I'm just not one of them. Does not matter though cause I've still gotten tons of "photoshop" comments under certain pictures . . Scroll back on my account and you'll find pics of me showing how much lighting or posture can change your appearance. Lots of people found this difficult to believe so then it must be photoshopped🙄 Yes, there's a filter but the shape of my body has not been altered. Just because something seems unreal to you doesn't always mean it's fake . . What you say on the internet has an impact on others. Imagine a girl with a naturally tiny waist and huge butt always getting comments that she uses photoshop even though she doesn't. That must suck right? Imagine an insecure girl using photoshop to look "prettier". Commenting that she is "still ugly as fuck" might indeed make her stop using photoshop. She'll get plastic surgery now . . People will always be doing things we don't agree with or simply don't understand. But does that really affect your life? Let's try to be kind to eachother. Hate won't make this world a better place 🙅🏻 . I know you probably thought that this post would be a rant on how there are "idiots" using photoshop but it isn't. Guess what? In real life you will also come across people who seem "perfect". And fuck, that's not photoshop. Work on your selfconfidence and know that you are gorgeous too! Someone elses beauty is not the absence of your own. As long as you are happy being you it shouldn't really matter what others are doing! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!❤

🤰🏻👀 By now you've probably seen one of these kinda pics before but I was so amazed myself that I just had to share. Look at the difference between me coming straight out of bed and me in the evening🌝✨ . . We all know there are only 2 reasonable explanations. 1. My stomach is kinda bloated due to all the food it had to digest during the day🍝 2. I got abducted & impregnated by aliens👽 Although I'd love to see what my half alien baby would look like lets talk about option nr 1 aka bloating🤰🏻 . Although most of us instagirls seem to have a flat tummy 24/7 we really don't. Most pictures on the internet are posed and show sucked in and flexed bellies😶 Great and all but it can give you a disformed idea of reality. Cause yes, I also get affected by what I see on the internet. I have stood in front of my mirror many times wondering why I looked like I was carrying triplets whilst all other fitgirls seemed to have a flat tummy all the freaking time🤷🏻‍♀️🤔 . . We like to show our "best" sides online and that's also okay!💕 However from time to time we might need a reminder that no one walks around looking "perfect" every single second of the day. It's normal for your tummy to expand a bit during the day. I mean hello, where did you think the food you eat goes?!😅 . . Be happy that your body digests all that food cause if it didn't you wouldn't be living that much longer😵 Angrily staring at your bloated belly isn't gonna make it go away. Might even make it worse.. stress isn't good for your tummy at all🙈 . . Appreciate that your body is constantly working to keep you alive!🤗 Damn your body sounds like a good friend, right? So treat it like one! Start loving your body! Your body is not your enemy but your ally!🤝 Work with it and not against it. If you love your body no one can take that away and you'll be stronger than ever! LOVE YOURSELF!❤❤ . Ps. In case it turns out I'm actually carrying an alien baby I'll keep you up to date! What shall I name him/her?!👶🏻😂 #somanythingstotakecareof #willmybabyevermeetherdad? #gonnabeasinglemum
