These Side-By-Side Fitness Blogger Photos Remind Us All That There Is No Such Thing As The Perfect Body

If you’re anything like me, you probably find yourself scrolling Instagram, only to suddenly realise you are 45 weeks deep in that fitness blogger’s Instagram and crying cause you don’t have a booty like that. Like seriously girl, how you get that booty?

In a refreshing honest move,ย Finnish Youtuber and wellness blogger Sarah Puhtoย got real about the fact that everyone has good and bad angles. Despite living an extremely healthy lifestyle, working out regularly and following a vegan diet, Puhto admitted that it often takes some time to get the prefect photo of her body.

“I thought I’d show my booty from its normal straight leg standing position vs a posed booty pop position ๐Ÿ˜ฌ 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,” she wrote on Instagram.

Not a progress photo ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผ Since its #humpday I thought it would be appropriate to post a booty pic ๐Ÿ‘ I thought I’d show my booty from its normal straight leg standing position vs a posed booty pop position ๐Ÿ˜ฌ 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 ๐Ÿค” 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 ๐ŸŒดโ˜€๏ธ

Puhto went on to explain that angles are everything, pointing out that even the Kardashian’s have to work those angles to get those killer booty shots. “Their butts can’t ALWAYS look that big from every angle ๐Ÿค” 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…ย Don’t think you can’t because you’re comparing a posed photo of a body to your everyday body,” she wrote.

In an earlier post, Puhto drew attention to the slightly ridiculous process that she has to go through to get the perfect photo, admitting that she often takes hundreds of photos before she gets the money shot.

“Usually when I take photos I honestly take about a hundred and will pick one or two of the best ones to post where I think I look good and I’ll delete the ones where I’m not ready,” she wrote.

Photos aren’t always reality ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐ŸŒฟ Usually when I take photos I honestly take about a hundred and will pick one or two of the best ones to post where I think I look good and I’ll delete the ones where I’m not ready (tummy relaxed, non smiling, mid posing photos. Basically me at my worst chilling angles ๐Ÿ˜‚). So here’s one of the photos I would normally delete and pretend never happened on the left and my good flexed, posed, smiley one on the right. I wanted to post this to show another example of how Instagram shows the highlights of people’s lives most of the time and how posing changes the way you look drastically. So you shouldn’t compare your everyday self to someone’s highlights on Instagram. Also wanted to clear up that there’s nothing wrong with posing and posting your best photos, you should post photos where you feel good, it’s just important to know that people don’t look like their good photos all the time. Just don’t get caught up comparing your body to someone’s best angles. You’re beautiful and amazing no matter what ๐Ÿ’• I just felt the need to spread some positivity and love today. Hope you all have an absolutely lovely day ๐ŸŒดโ˜€๏ธ

The moral of the story – we all have bad and good angles. Life on Instagram isn’t always what it seems.
