Poza tym, że media społecznościowe to miejsce, przez które możemy nabawić się kompleksów, to też miejsce, z którego możemy czerpać inspirację. Zmiana stylu życia lub praca nad ciałem, nie zawsze oznacza zrzucanie zbędnych kilogramów. Te kobiety prezentują alternatywne podejście do transformacji ciała. Postanowiły wziąć sprawy w swoje ręce i bez dwóch zdań możemy stwierdzić, że są inspirujące!

Nieistniejące ideały

Była modelka Liza Golden-Bhojwan pokazała, jak zmieniło się jej ciało, kiedy przestała walczyć o dopasowanie się do ideałów branży. Presja wyglądania w określony sposób była tak wielka, że modelka spożywała wyłącznie 500 kalorii dziennie i zmuszała swoje ciało do ogromnego wysiłku. Postanowiła z tym skończyć i nareszcie czuje się szczęśliwa.

Walka z obsesją

18 miesięcy- tyle czasu fitblogerka Emma O’Neill pracowała nad swoim ciałem. Jest z niego dumna, chociaż waga wskazuje o 10 kilogramów więcej. Zanim zmieniła swoje myślenie, ważyła zaledwie 47 kilogramów, a jej życiem kierowała obsesja na punkcie diety.

Miłość do krągłości

Nie ma nic piękniejszego niż widok kobiety doceniającej własne ciało. Charli Howard zdecydowała, że przestanie zmuszać swój organizm, do nienaturalnego wysiłku. Na Instagramie przyznała, że kocha swoje kobiece kształty oraz powiększające się piersi i uda.

Starcie z głodem

Ktoś może powiedzieć, że Megan Jayne Crabbe zrujnowała swoje ciało, odpuszczając dietę i ćwiczenia. Nie ma to znaczenia, ponieważ najważniejsze jest to, że dziewczyna w końcu uwierzyła w siebie i zaczęła cieszyć się życiem, co dumnie podkreśla na swoim Instagramie!

Każda z tych kobiet udowadnia, że szczęścia nie da się zmierzyć skalą na wadze. Ich niezwykłe metamorfozy pokazują, że ze wstydem i kompleksami można wygrać, ale nie trzeba robić tego kosztem zdrowia fizycznego i psychicznego.

A little flashback Friday action for you. This caption will be long and won’t fit, so if you’d like to read please find the rest in the comment section….The left side was me at the start of the peak of my career. My first proper fashion week where I was actually the size I needed to be. I was booking amazing shows that one never thinks they actually could, walking with girls who I once looked up to, it was a serious adrenaline rush…but after fainting one night in my apt whilst preparing one of my very low cal meals (I think it was 20 pieces of steamed edamame if I remember correctly), I called it quits with the diet and workout regime I was put on and decided I could do it on my own. I thought to myself, I can still be this thin, but I’ll just eat a little more so I don’t feel so horrible. Well, eating a little more turned into eating nearly a bag full of almonds, which then turned into eating full size meals, which then turned into a full blown binge. I was craving every single food you could imagine and I was giving in to every craving even though I knew this was such an important time in my career. I made it through NYFW okay, no one had noticed any weight gain, but by the time I had gotten the LFW I could see the pounds starting to show both in the mirror and on the measuring tape, but I kept quiet obviously not wanting to sabotage myself. I found myself going to the grocery store and picking up raw vegetables to try and make up for the near two week binge I had in NY, but I didn’t see any weight coming off no matter how „healthy” I was eating and no matter how many workouts I fit in. MFW came and I knew I was bigger and by bigger I mean a 35.5in hip rather than the 34.5in hip I started with in NY, I played it cool and just pretended everything was normal. I did end up booking shows, Dolce & Gabbana being one of them. Which I afterwards received online criticism about my thighs looking fat…Anyways PFW came about, and I found it impossible to resist those chocolate croissants 🙊 I went on many a casting with one exclusive option being on my schedule, but after meeting the client I knew the reason for me not nailing the gig, my size…

Can I be cringe and say I got emotional when I compared these two photos lol 😄 A massive #throwbackthursday to 2015 when I underate, overtrained and genuinely didn’t have a bloody clue. I was so unconfident in myself and had unhealthy relationships with food. I never EVER could have imagined that I’d be able to change my body (and my mindset) the way I have, genuinely 😊 I never thought that I „gave enough”. I never thought I „did it right” because I wasn’t training how she was.. or counting macros.. or eating *clean* enough. I messed up so many times during these 1.5 years of my fitness journey and have always been hard on myself.. but looking back, I’m sooooo proud. And I’m proud to say I’m proud 😊 You don’t need to be perfect or even NEAR perfect to achieve your goals and transform you body/life. Sure, you do have to work hard. But I promise you can still mess up, eat the things you love, miss your gym sessions and be a normal human, too. Fitness and ~health~ should be a fun addition to your life, rather than the whole of it. If you take one thing from this caption, its that you only have to eat kale if you like it lol. Fitness looks different on everyone and I swear to god if I can do it, so can you!!!!! I promise (cos I am legit the queen of sleep, carbs, and general laziness) Much love ❤️ #transformation (ps I’m 5’5)

Let me tell you a little tale regarding the selfies pictured here. In the words of Nicki Minaj, I was „feelin’ myself” in the photo on the right, despite being in Texas and having eaten more food than is humanly necessary. But hey, it was a holiday, and I was enjoying myself. Life isn’t about restricting. ✖️ It’s taken me a longggg time, but I like how my shape is developing. 🍑 I like how womanly I’m starting to look. I like how my boobs and thighs are getting bigger, which I never thought I’d say. 💪🏼 I don’t want to look like that miserable girl on the left, whose gums were always bleeding, hair was falling out, periods didn’t come etc. ☹️ So anyway, I posted that „feelin’ myself” photo & carried on with my day. A couple of days later, I was sent an article that had been written about me with that selfie included. The article itself was very nice, as is the girl who wrote it (she frequently writes about body positivity)… but then I made the mistake of viewing the comments. 🙄🙄🙄 In a nutshell, I was described as „fat”, „ugly”, „arrogant” and „not model material”. One person said I should go and work in porn because that’s all I was good for. 💔 I just began sobbing at Austin Airport, which was a bit embarrassing, but it was a reflection of how I felt inside. MORTIFIED. Ashamed. FAT. Suddenly, all the old thoughts & feelings I felt in the left photo came rushing back, like how I should stop eating for the rest of the day, or start over exercising to compensate. 😢 But then a random lady came over to me and gave me a hug out of the blue. Like those dickheads on the internet, she was a total stranger, but she decided to show me kindness, despite not knowing me or why I was crying. ❤️ I suddenly realised that my worth wasn’t representative of some mean trolls on the internet. It’s taken my years, but I LIKE MY BODY & MY SHAPE. I’m finally healthy 🎉 My body isn’t validated by anyone else’s views of me. And neither is yours! ✌🏼 Be kind to other girls online. You never know how your words may affect someone. 💕 #bodypositive #curves #iamallwoman

„Wait so you just decided to RUIN your body?” Nah, I just stopped torturing myself every day for not fitting an image I was never supposed to be. · „But you look so much healthier to me before.” That’s funny, you looked so much more intelligent to me before you equated health with weight and forgot that mental health is health too. · „You could have stayed the same and loved your body, you didn’t need to get fat.” I could have stayed the same and spiralled back into the eating disorder that almost killed me when I was 15. I could have kept starving myself and obsessively working out for hours everyday but it never would have lead me to self love. No matter how much weight I lost there was always still something to hate. And sure, people don’t NEED to gain weight to find their self love, this is just what my body needed to do to match up to my mental freedom. THIS IS MY HAPPY BODY. · „But surely you can’t be happy looking like that now, I could never be happy in that body.” I didn’t think I could either, but as it turns out, happiness isn’t a size. And I wasted far too many years believing that it was. Now I’m not going to stop letting people know that they deserve happiness exactly as they are. They deserve to live now, not 10 pounds from now. They deserve that mental freedom. So to every person reading this: I hope you get your freedom too, however it might look. I’ll be cheering you on every step of the way. 💜💙💚🌈🌞 P.s. these are all comments I received on my last before/after picture, luckily for me, they just make me want to keep going even more 👊
