This woman is smashing unrealistic beauty perceptions, one Instagram post at a time.
Imre Çeçen is just one among an army of beautiful, intelligent and business-savvy women clogging up your Instagram feeds in high fashion fitness gear, almost invariably holding a bowl of chia seeds and grinning whiter-than-white smiles, presumably pretending they enjoy eating foods that tastes of cardboard.
These highly curated feeds offer us a glimpse, a mere 30-second snapshot of what life allegedly looks like for social influencers. But Imre is determined to go a little deeper and share the reality behind her ‘grammable lifestyle.
⏳Only 30 seconds in between those pictures⌛️ I really doubted whether this should be called a "30 second transformation" or a "real life / posed pic". But if you ever run into me I will NOT look like EITHER of them!?? Today I wanna talk to you about posture?? Cause yes that right picture is definitely one of my favourite poses cause it enhances some features of MY body. But taking that left pic I was posing too? . . Look at my feet pushed together, my arm awkwardly hanging close to my body which takes away the shape of my upperbody??♀️ My shoulders are completely rounded which "closes" my chest. I seriously had issues looking up whilst taking this picture cause my posture caused my head to face the floor?. . Now compare this to the right one. I never thought I'd ever say this on insta but LOOK AT MY TITTIES?? In the right pic my chest is open which makes my entire upperbody look better and also makes it possible to look up?. . STOP FEELING BAD ABOUT YOURSELF BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU SEE ON SOCIAL MEDIA!! In real life my body looks somewhere inbetween those two pictures?? But what I really wanted to say; I get tons of DM's and emails from girls telling me how terrible they look. Sometimes they even send me pictures and guess what? They are always posing like the pic on the left. Listen to me; you are BEAUTIFUL no matter what!! I'm not only looking awkward in that pose too, I also felt super uncomfortable. The rounded shoulders and closed posture whisper; I'd rather not be in this pic? Where the right pic screams confidence???? . . When I take pics I instantly stand in a way which makes me feel pretty af? When I go shooting in public places and the same group of boys passes me for the 5th time I feel incredibly uncomfortable and guess what; it shows in the pic! My entire posture changes when I feel awkward. So if you walk to your mirror thinking; I look terrible, it's gonna show in your posture!! You're gonna see that insecure girl and feel even worse? STOP THAT!! I'm asking you to go to your mirror feeling badass, tell yourself how beautiful you are and take selfies like a queen? it doesn't matter what your body looks like, Just OWN IT! ❤ #weareallbeautiful
Imre, more often than many other models out there in the ether, shares candid photographs that outnumber her curated bank of posed images.
She hopes they will keep her followers informed about the realities of our constantly changing bodies and make sure young, vulnerable minds don’t aspire to an unrealistic idea of what women look like.
In these photographs, Imre shows what a difference 30 seconds can make to any photograph with some clever trickery of light, posing, posture and even confidence.
‼️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??
Despite being a picture-perfect Instagram fitness model and lifestyle blogger, according to the surface of her social media, Imre refuses to feed into the damaging ideals the picture-sharing platform is often accused of perpetuating.
Dutch-born Çeçen was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and Pfeiffer’s disease, which motivated her on a journey to fitness.
Insta models be like; only gonna post pictures with lighting that shows my abs??? Todays "influencers" often seem to forget that when you only post pictures like the left one your followers may think you look like that 24/7. #wedont ✨ This right pic was taken whilst using a strong artificial light which takes alway all shades? The left pic is only natural light which leaves the shades of my abs?I'm flexing in both pics and the pose is pretty much the same! ✨ I posted a similar pic not so long ago and I got so many comments saying it was photoshop? This time I made a video too so maybe I'll upload it later. Honestly, I'm just trying to make something clear to you. No reason to fake it?? ✨ Light is a life changer! You know what you do when you contour your face with make up? You put on fake shades to create depth in your face. You put on highlighter to make some parts of your face pop up. ?? ✨ Now think about abs. You can see muscles when a body is defined & thus the muscles "stick out". This creates the shades which shows us the definition. Take away lighting from a good angle and those shades & muscle definition are gone. It's that simple? ✨ Don't always believe those magical transformations which happened in weeks. I could have just as well pretended this was a transformation pic. Always take your transformation pics with the same lighting! ? ✨ Transforming your body, mindset and lifestyle takes time and hard work⏳ Changing your body by using different lighting takes only seconds?? Stop focussing on others and stop comparing! Start focussing on yourself and start loving yourself! You don't need abs, a thigh gap or a big booty to be beautiful?? You just need to be you!!?? ✨ Ps. Who's gonna stand in front of their mirror later today testing all sorts of lighting??? #iknowiwould Also if you don't believe these pics were taken moments apart: look at that tiny stripe on my hand where I tested my eyeliner??? Oh and tag a friend who needs to know that lighting can make such a big difference!??
While she undeniably works hard for the body she has, and regularly shares diet and gym tips, Imre has decided to shine a light on what really goes into her social media persona – and those washboard abs.
Imre has posted a series of photographs showing how lighting can completely alter the composition of a photograph – and even the person pictured within that square of pixels.
Insta models be like; only gonna post pictures with lighting that shows my abs??? Todays "influencers" often seem to forget that when you only post pictures like the right one your followers may think you look like that 24/7. #wedont✨ ✨ I don't want anyone looking in the mirror feeling bad because of me. And yes I know lots of you probably won't look like this even with "good" ab lighting. Not everyone has visible abs and that's totally okay! Every single body is beautiful in its own way!!❤ I still think it's important to know even us "insta models" don't look like that all the time? This left pic was taken whilst using a strong artificial light which takes alway all shades? The right pic is only natural light which leaves the shades of my abs?I'm flexing in both pics! ✨ I really want you to understand the power of lighting! I see tons of big fitness accounts and bloggers sharing transformation pictures but with different lighting and it kinda bothers me? Yes if you've lost 20 pounds we're gonna notice. But if you just lost a little bit and got toned you should use the same lighting for both pictures!!! ✨ Imagine if I'd put on different clothes in each picture and stood a bit differently. I could have just pretended this was a transformation picture and it would probably get tons of likes??♀️ People would ask me my "secret", what I eat and how I train??♀️ Guess what every fitness accounts secret is? LIGHTING!! ? ✨ I'm not saying that transformation pics with different lighting aren't real. It's just that usually the transformation isn't as big as the lighting makes it seem. Don't beat yourself up cause you see people all over the internet who claim to have made huge transformations in a short amount of time?? ✨ Transforming your body, mindset and lifestyle takes time and hard work⏳ Changing your body by using different lighting takes only seconds?? Stop focussing on others and stop comparing! Start focussing on yourself and start loving yourself! You don't need abs, a thigh gap or a big booty to be beautiful?? You just need to be you!!?? ✨ Ps. Who's gonna stand in front of their mirror later today testing all sorts of lighting???
Sharing a side-by-side comparison of herself, Imre captioned it:
Todays influencers often seem to forget that when you only post pictures like the right one your followers may think you look like that 24/7 #wedont
Every single body is beautiful in its own way… I think it’s important to know “insta models” don’t look like that all the time.
⁉️CAN YOU GET RID OF ALL SKINFOLDS &FATROLLS?⁉️ I know some people might think that this is a silly question but I noticed that lots of women and girls do seem to struggle with this and that's more than logical!!!? . On tv and in magazines we only see airbrushed bodies, "flattering" poses and even bodies which had so much surgery that you might wonder if it's still human. This changes our ideas about reality and the "perfect body". Suddenly young girls seem to think they need a butt so big that you can't even turn around anymore without smacking someone down with it? That shit is more dangerous than idiots walking around with giant backpacks or pipes ? ? #youcouldkillsomeone . Girls want to look like a marble statue without any rolls or folds. You know why that statue doesn't have folds? Cause it's a statue and it can't move! Be greatfull cause that skin of yours gives you the opportunity to walk around, to eat and just to live in general!✨ . If you're feeling down whenever you see any rolls, folds or whatever: go check out my latest YouTube video! It's called "can you get rid of all skinfolds & fatrolls" and as far as I've heard it makes you see fatrolls in a totally different way! #theyareyourfriends (Kinda want to quote all amazing resposes I got) Anyway, the direct link to this video is in my bio so check it out!! It tells you if it's possible to be all skinfold & fatroll free? Oh and a realistic view of my body in different poses? #hellofolds #hellorolls . Some skin folds or rolls shouldn't make you freak out?? You should be happy that you've got them!! So no need to look as terrified as I do in this left picture? Doing this will only give you more skinfolds only these are called wrinkles??? #uhoh . Start loving your body for all it does is taking care of you! Literally, it's only job is to be there for you!? Stop seeing your body as your enemy, stop hating it! Start seeing your body as your best friend! Start loving it! You are beautiful no matter what!❤ . RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU'RE READY TO START LOVING YOUR BODY!??? day by day, step by step, fold by fold & roll by roll!?? ? . Ps. If you're having a bad day just zoom in on my overdamatic face???
The model, who lives and works in Amsterdam, is also trying to banish the phobia of ‘fat rolls’ that is plaguing a worrisome amount of women in today’s beauty obsessed society.

"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!)?
Imre, who also has a masterful grasp of metaphor, shared another side-by-side comparsion and wrote: “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!”
Musing over why Insta models only share images of so-called perfection, she added:
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!
?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!❤
Imre has honestly exposed the alterations models are capable of making to their images – and in turn, the very bodies they stand in.
‼️IMPORTANT MESSAGE‼️My Natural shape vs photoshop? But guess what, also my natural shape vs someone else's natural shape!!! . This whole "look what photoshop can do" hype is great but we actually have to keep it real too. Yes more real than just showing our OWN natural shape vs photoshop. I posted about the subject a month ago but I'm just gonna harrass you with it again cause I find it so important?? . See this is MY natural shape. Nothing wrong with it but I don't have that ⏳shape. HOWEVER, there are women who do! Just because someone's body is different than yours doesn't mean they had plastic surgery or it's photoshopped?? . It's sad that people are claiming that all bodies you think are "goals" are fake or photoshopped cause that's not the truth?? There are women out there with hourglass figures, there are women which have completely transformed their bodies??♀️?? . Imagine a woman being insecure about her natural⏳ shape who keeps getting comments saying: stop photoshopping your pics, it looks ugly af. Or a woman who put years of hard work into her body getting comments it's "fake"??♀️ That hurts doesn't it?? . I'm posting this cause I want you to realise there are all kinds of bodies and they're all equally beautiful! Yes you can lose weight or grow a booty but that doesn't make you beautiful?? It just changes you, the beauty was already there! It's okay to have physical goals but always rember that you are beautiful no matter what! The most beautiful women are happy women!✨ . It's important to know that photoshop is present but that doesn't mean everything is suddenly fake. Also I know you mean well but I don't need to hear that I don't need photoshop cause my own body looks "better" than the curvy one. They are just different body types and they're both beautiful! So is the shape with a little "less curves" than I have! ALL BEAUTIFUL! ❤❤ . Curvy isn't better than skinny & skinny isn't better than curvy?? They're different, that's it! STOP COMPARING YOUR BODY TO OTHERS! I was born with this body and I'm proud of it. Now go be proud of your body!❤ Raise your hand if you think all bodies are beautiful!?? #imreswarriors
The contrast between the expertly – and slyly – doctored images and the originals is astounding to those of us not well-versed in careers dictated by appearance.
Imre also tries to get her followers to embrace the perfectly natural processes of biology that occur in the female form.
??? 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
From bloating to weight and water gain, of course, our bodies change throughout the day.
Imre hopes her posts will normalise this and debunk the myth of unrealistic body aspirations.
‼️BLOATING‼️ it happens to all of us and that's why so many fitness bloggers are sharing this with all their followers at the moment. Great and all but is bloating always as innocent as we think? NO!!?? I don't want to scare you too much cause there are many silly and normal reason which cause this oh so famous "foodbaby" ???? . Yet these pictures of mine were taken in the morning on an EMPTY stomach. This ain't no ordinary foodbaby??I turned out to have a serious case of LGS. This can actually get you really sick and that's also what it did to me? New blogpost is on my blog explaining what can be the "less serious" causes of your bloated belly but also the serious ones! + some tips to prevent bloating. Direct link is in my bio? – – I'm feeling kinda mean now cause I know how happy everyone was getting from all those fitness bloggers sharing how normal a bloat is. Sorry to be your dream crusher but sometimes bloating can be an indicater of a quite serious digestive issue. No need to instantly run to your doctor when your tummy gets a bit bigger after a meal guys?? Just read the post and figure out what causes your beloved "foodbaby". – – It's totally normal for your body (&belly) to change a bit during the day. You can't expect to eat and drink without getting a little "bigger". I mean everything consume has to go somewhere right? Don't get too fooled by what you see on instagram. As I said I had a severe case of LGS and also candida. (All explained in the post) This picture was on an empty stomach so after I'd eaten my tummy got even bigger and would hurt like hell. Yet even I could still suck it in! – – Don't think you should be embarrassed because of a tiny bloat! You might think all your "idols" don't have one because you never see it on their pictures. WAKE UP! Look at how bloated I am and yet still able to suck it in for a picture. Even us instagram weirdos who are believed to have super powers just because we have lots of followers are only human. We get bloated to, we have fatrolls or skinfolds and damn do I look ugly most of the time?? – – Be proud of who you are! You are beautiful, amazing and stronger than you might think! Go get it!!❤
After all, according to the model, with a little body confidence and some clever posture, these poses are easy to replicate, if you are so inclined to look entirely different in real life and on the internet.
?Spoiler alert? I did not pull down my shorts, they are at the same height in all these pictures!! Look at the distance between my shorts and bellybutton? IT'S ALL ABOUT POSTURE!! ✨ So how is this even possible? On the left picture I'm completely pushing my hips forwards and my back & shoulders are rounded. Due to this my boobs get pushed towards my belly button. Slouching is defenitely bad posture and can cause serious health issues! Honestly, I think this is how we all look coming out of the changing room when your mum forced you to try on something ridiculous? ✨ "Natural" posture me is just chilling? No weird pose, no overarching or slouching?? Just standing proud an standing tall! I mean, look at that happy face! Standing like this takes me little to no effort but does force my core to engage? ✨ Than we have posed me?? No time to smile cause damn this pose is hard work? Flexing my abs and arching that back so much we might as well turn it into a slide for them kids to play on? Because of the arched back my abs are more visible and the distance between my shorts & sportsbra looks bigger . ✨ Since I've posted something similar before I know people are gonna say; "even when posing I look like the pic on the left"? Let me tell you something THIS IS NOT ABOUT HAVING ABS OR A "THIGHGAP"?? EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU LOOKS BETTER WITH PROPER POSTURE!! You go get the best out of YOUR body by OWNING it! Be proud!! ? ✨ Look at left pic me? Honestly, I kinda look like a serial killer who just layed eyes upon its next victim. Why? The rounded back & neck make it almost impossible to look up. Instead of trying to hide behind "closed" body language try to stand proud and tall! You deserve to be seen! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!!❤❤ ✨ New blogpost about posture is up! Direct link to my fb is in my bio. You'll find the link there?You definitely don't want to miss this one. Ended it with my worst joke/pun ever?? #gettingworseeverysingleday #proudofitthough ?? Also yes, thank you for letting me know this "dumb ass bitch" made a spelling mistake? People who also have dyslexia will understand? #nevergetitright #evenwhenyoudoublecheck
Instagram has received much criticism for promoting pressures on young women to conform to ‘perfection’ as dictated by fashion and fitness feeds, and glossing over the body confidence turmoil that is evoked behind the filters.
So I posted a pic of the difference between me standing and me sitting a while ago and I got some real badass comments? I got called "fat", "ugly" and was even told that "real" fitgirls don't look like this right pic when they sit down? ??♀️ ✨ First of all: being fit has very little to do with how you look. Having a low fatpercentage does not mean someone is fit or healthy?? It goes the other way around too. Not having a low fatpercentage does NOT mean you can't be fit. There is no standard for being fit. We can all be fit in our own way! Find a way of being fit that makes you happy!??♀️⛹?♀️??♀️??♀️ ✨ Then for the people who said they do not have any kind of "rolls" when they sit: we all have a skin. Your skin is your biggest organ and keeps your other organs together whilst keeping bacteria etc out. Your skin is flexible so you can MOVE?? Being flexible also means that if you push it certain ways it rolls up a bit. Be thankful for those skinrolls! Without them you'd have to stay put in one place your entire life and probably die a lonely death. Cause no, your other inflexible friends can't move either? ? ✨ . When I sit up straight and flex I don't have any rolls. When I slouch, round my shouders and back I do have some tiny rolls. I'd rather call them skinfolds though. I'll be honest: I don't really have a huge pouch. For "normal" people standards I actually have little fat on my belly. Then again, for bodybuilding standards my fatpercentage is NOT that low at all??♀️ . ✨ There is no such thing as a perfect body. Your goals depend on what kinda people you surround yourself with and look up to? You might look at yourself and think you're "too fat" whereas someone else looks at you and wishes one day they will look like you. Learn to love yourself no matter what! You won't find happiness in having your goal body?? You have to find happiness within yourself!? ✨ There will always be people who won't like you. But guess what? There will also ALWAYS be people who LOVE you! Become your own biggest fan. See how amazing you are and suddenly you'll turn into "goals" yourself! I believe in you, now believe in yourself too!??❤❤
Recently, social influencers – including Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid – have come under fire legally for their part to play in the disastrous Fyre Festival, and many are calling for public personalities to take responsibility for the huge sway they have over fans.
? KEEPING IT REAL! ? So I know many people out there are sharing these kinda pictures to show you how we all have "fatrolls" & "skinfolds". That's not the message I wanna share with you today. I'm gonna tell you why you should be greatfull as fuck that you've got them too!??? #luckyyou . Did you know that your skin is the largest organ you have? It's also a super important one! It warns and protects us and without a skin human beings would have probably been extinct years ago. Imagine those few first cavemen seeing fire, not feeling the heat cause they didn't have a skin with its heat feeling nerves?? None of them would be warned and they might have all ended up dancing in the flames. Yep that's how humanity could have ended?? #thatimaginationthough #givemeanaward . On a more "serious" note; there is a reason why your skin is flexible and why you've got that tiny bit more than you may think you need. It's so you can MOVE! Think about rotating your upperbody. The skin around your tummy and back has to move with you, stretch out etc. If not you wouldn't be able to rotate! ⛹?♀️??♀️???♀️. . That kinda "perfect" skin you think you want, the one that is tight as hell and doesn't fold; that one will not allow you to move! Pretty sure that if you had such a skin the "survival of the fittest" theory would instantly kill you. How are you going to eat if you can't move? How are you going to get to work or to your friends???♀️?? . . Think you get my point by now. And yes some of us have "bigger" fatrolls. Some have only skin folds cause their fat% is super low. But in the end the one thing we all have is a skin that allows us to live a life. So instead of hating your skin, go get out there and live that life to the fullest!! A little skinfold never hurt nobody. A negative self esteem does? . . Honestly wear that crop top, winnie the pooh wears one too!?? Dance like you are the queen of the jungle!?? And take selfies like the world has never seen such a pretty human being before!❤ OWN IT!!?? #skinfoldhere #fatrollthere #stillpretty ? Tag someone who needs to realise this!!❤❤
But, whether you like it or not, it looks like the phenomenon of the social media model is here to stay.
Let’s just hope more women who have chosen this career path are as candid as Imre.
