We all know that people tend to put the best possible versions of themselves on social media, but this blogger’s pictures will make you look at “progress pics” in a whole new light.
Finnish woman Sara Puhto, behind the popular Instagram account @saggysara, recently posted the kind of “before and after” collage we’ve become used to seeing on the platform.
But the difference with this one is the time that elapsed between the shots. Instead of months or years of hard work it took seconds, with savvy adjustments to lighting and angles.
A point that the 22-year-old highlighted in her caption.
“If I saw the photo on the left a year ago I would've instantly thought so negatively about my body, that all my hard work from working out was non existent, that if someone looked at me they would've never thought I've been working out for 2 years and think I wasn't trying hard enough,” she wrote.
“But the thing is is that all bodies look different. Nobody's booty looks round and peachy from all angles. Nobody's body looks the same from all angles.”
She advises others to workout and eat right to feel good, instead of striving for a “messed up” idea of perfection.
“Don't hate yourself just because of bad photos, they do not define you as a person.”
"You are perfect the way you are."
