Inspired by @workoutbean to keep it real with a #30secondbeforeandafter picture! 🙅🏽NOT progress pic! The photo on the left was taken 30 seconds before the photo on the right. We always want to portray the best of ourselves but that means we're only seeing other's highlight reels. I live a real life with bloating, fluffy days and days where I snooze my alarm for an hour to snuggle in bed before the gym 😁 BUT thank you to my abs for finally coming out to play lately 🙌🏼💦 #BBG #bbgboston #bbground2 #sweatwithkayla #liss #motivation #bbgfam #keepitreal #helloabs #healthier #stronger #happier #messages #bbggirl #cottoncandypants
It doesn’t matter how many fitness apps you download, or Starbucks sugar-coffees you don’t drink, or healthy foods you eat — sometimes you’re going to feel bad about you’re body. Particularly after a spin around Instagram. It’s one thing for Dwayne Johnson to look like, well, The Rock, but then you see normal, non-Hercules people with impossibly toned abs, and compare them to your Grimace-after-a-pizza-bender physique. It can be disheartening.
But there’s something you should know: EVERYONE’S A LIAR.
Okay, not everyone. The Rock, for instance, is legitimate. So is this woman. But, and this may shock you, photos can be deceiving. A small turn here, better lighting there, and suddenly you look like an entirely different person. To inspire others, women on Instagram are showing how easy it is to visually manipulate someone through the #30SecondBeforeAndAfter hashtag.
