¡Todo se trata de una ilusión!

En redes sociales, pero sobre todo en ésta, siempre vemos cuentas con esbeltos cuerpos de envidia, caras de impacto o sonrisas perfectas. Pero detrás de toda esa belleza siempre hay un secreto, y es por ello que Chessie King se atrevió a revelar qué hay detrás de estas imágenes.

LET’S TALK. Ever bent your back in half to try that ‘booty’ pose you see all the fitnessgrammmmers doing?! Ever done it & realised your ???? looks absolutely nothing like the perfect smooth peach you see in their photo? The left photo is in a very ‘flattering’ darker light, the right is what my beeeeehind ACTUALLY looks like… bumps, lumps & the real stuff. Neither photos have a filter or have been edited at all, they’re both in the same room just different areas in my living room! Instagram is FLOODED with the left photos when actually we should be drowning in ‘the real life booty’ pictures. It is something I’m so so passionate about & it frustrates me daily how some people with such a huge responsibility, use Instagram to ‘show off’ their lives, their ‘perfect’ bodies & create this unachievable life. Instagram is a platform to find inspiration & motivation but it is also the modern way of talking about issues, real life sh????t & to build a community of people that know they are not alone in any aspect of life. I used to be so scared of wearing shorts & felt so so uncomfortable BUT I workout 5-6 times a week, I eat very well & I will ALWAYS have the bits you can see on the right photo, my ‘second bottom’, the darker bit underneath my cheeeeeky weekys ????. Both are ‘real’ they’re just showing different parts of ‘reality’ but which one is ‘goals’… the right one SHOULD be ????

La entrenadora fitness ha hecho varios comparativos de cómo luce su cuerpo en la realidad vs sus poses y otros truquitos.

  No matter what shape, size, height you are… never ever apologise for wearing a bikini ???? The way you hold yourself speaks a thousand words. It changes how you look & how you feel. Shoulders back, chest open = confidence. Even if you’re not feeling super comfortable, this posture oozes ‘I’m slaying this bikini’ Hunched over, slouchy = ‘sorry I’m wearing this, I shouldn’t be’ YES YOU SHOULD. After so many questions since Ibiza bikini photos, I’ve filmed my top tips for SLAYING YOUR BIKINI ???? I want you to try something for me now. Whether you’re standing or sitting. Roll your shoulders forward & let that belly hang out. Notice how it makes you feel. Now, open up that chest & pull those shoulders back. You’ve grown a few inches & how do you feel now? Body confidence is a feeling, it’s something you slowly find when you start thinking a different way. It’s not just about ‘losing a few pounds’ or ‘dropping a dress size’. With summer holidays coming at you like a rocket, I want to help you feel like the GODDESS YOU ARE in every outfit, bikini or you’re favourite dress ????????   Una publicación compartida por C H E S S I E K I N G (@chessiekingg) el

Para demostrar el radical cambio que logró en su fotografía, a la también bloguera sólo le bastó con elevar a la cintura sus leggings y cambiar la posición en la que puso su cuerpo acompañado de una linda sonrisa.


BIG ANNOUNCEMENT… @gracefituk & I are expecting ???????????????? Joking, I’m just super duper bloated AGAIN. These photos are literally a second apart & what I really wanted to share with those that do suffer from bloating is YOU ARE NOT ALONE. It’s so sore & uncomfortable & sometimes leaves me unable to actually walk because I’m bent over in agony. But people see the right way more than they see the left. I could’ve just posted the right photo with the life saving @NikeWomen @JDwomen leggings that suck EVERYTHANKK IN but no, I was reaaaallly struggling & wanted to show you what I was reaaallly feeling. My top tips for bloating, because boy has it happened enough to talk from experience ???????? • If you can, get into child’s pose, or cat/cow. Let that tummy hang out. • Drink peppermint tea, but don’t down it all in one. Just little sips ☕️ • Wear loose clothes, having tight high waisted is the worst & makes you feel even more self conscious about it • Avoid alcohol or any thing too heavily spiced/flavoured. Just stick to simple, easily digestible foods • Remember it will go down, it’s horrible at the time & can change your mood but after a good nights sleep & all the above. You’ll be feeling back to normal ???? Sending all my love to my fellow ‘bloaters’… we’re just prepping our minds for when we are actually preggerssss… it’s a trial membership every time it happens! ????????

La chica de 24 años es conocida por dar múltiples consejos fitness, pero sobre todo por sus snaps. Pero hace unos meses, decidió publicar imágenes de su cuerpo en bikini para que todos sus seguidores notaran cómo cambia drásticamente, dependiendo de la luz y el ángulo. 

We’ve all seen hundreds of these but they really do help me 1. Be honest with you & 2. Feel body confident in myself ???????? I’ll let you into a little secret… @mathewlcarter was snapping away like the amazing boyfriend he is & I stopped half way through to say I really felt uncomfortable. He asked why & I said I just feel like my legs look chunky. You see so many girls on their tiptoes ‘posing’ & I’m guilty of it too. It makes your legs look leaner & longer… but in reality, yes I am nearly 6 foot & I’m lucky to have long legs, but they are still the part of my body I feel conscious of. I know some of these 2 photo ‘posing’ ‘natural’ posts are done wrongly & they actually make you feel worse about your body, but a lot are done in the right way & really help me. Even though I preach body confidence & ‘embracing the wobble’ I still have moments where I feel like I want to hide my legs… but what’s different is how I deal with it. I give myself a little prep talk & shake off that negativity & remind myself what they do for me! They carry me round every day & are strong mother f????????kers. I then just stopped ‘posing’ & smiled the biggest smile I possible could & it completely changed my mood. It’s okay to find your ‘pose’ you feel comfortable in in photos, the tiptoe, the hip to the side, the one leg in front of the other… but it’s even better to feel comfortable just standing flat foot on the ground, smiling like the grinch ????????

Con otro ejemplo comparó el contraste de las fotos con o sin filtro, que la mayoría de las veces borramos.


????????|???????? Left photo: Favourited out of the 8 taken & posted. Right photo: Immediately deleted & forgotten about. Both photos unedited & seconds between them. I do so many of these but this one is my scariest & most exposing so far. I was going through my recently deleted folder ready to ‘delete all’ but saw the right photo & recovered it. I felt this sense of guilt that I’d deleted it & posted the left one. A year ago I would’ve been left feeling so unhappy by how I look on the right & deleted it forever like it never happened but it was a huge reminder for me today that Instagram can be such a ‘perfection trap’. I’m clearly super happy in the right one after @brontekingg had cracked a hilarious joke, I don’t hate it but the lighting isn’t ‘flattering’ nor is the way I’m holding my body or the angle of it but it’s ME. Both of the photos are me ???????? I am proud of how I feel about my body looking at these photos. I feel like I look healthy in both & look after myself but also live without controlling myself like I have done in the past. So your Monday Motivation all the way from Singapore: People post the best photo out of a bunch taken… I know it’s said a lot these days but it helps me a huge amount too. If you see a photo of yourself in ‘bad’ lighting or an ‘unflattering angle’ just remind yourself how beautiful you are & that you’re ALLOWED to look like that. We were not made to be Barbie dolls who LOOK insanely good 24/7, we were made to be humans who FEEL insanely good 24/7 ????

“A la izquierda, mi foto preferida de las ocho que hice y publiqué. A la derecha, la que eliminé y olvidé al instante. Ninguna de las dos fotos está retocada y se hicieron en un intervalo de varios segundos de diferencia. Suelo hacer este tipo de fotos, pero ésta es en concreto la que más miedo me da y en la que más me expongo hasta el momento. Hace poco fui a la carpeta de documentos eliminados con la idea de borrarlos todos, pero vi la foto de la derecha y la recuperé. Me sentía culpable por haberla borrado y haber publicado la de la izquierda. Hace un año, me habría sentido fatal por el aspecto de la foto de la derecha y la habría borrado como si nada, pero es una buena forma de recordarme hasta qué punto Instagram es una ‘trampa de perfección’. […] Estas dos fotos me representan. Estoy orgullosa de lo que siento cuando me veo. Tengo la impresión de que estoy en buena forma en las dos fotos, de que me cuido, pero también de que vivo sin controlarlo todo como solía hacer en el pasado”. Chessie busca ser sincera con sus followers, por eso ha admitido que ha luchado contra sus inseguridades y explica en sus publicaciones que ninguna mujer debería fijarse metas basadas en lo que ve en las redes sociales, pues todos tenemos imperfecciones.  

Ever sat on the floor like the right photo, looked down at your belly & thought ‘yuk’? ???????? I have… a million times. But over the past year, with the help of Instagram & ‘the real talk’ I’ve learnt it’s actually completely & utterly normal. As the gorge goddess @imrececen stated, very very wisely… you are beautiful no matter what ???????? We all get sucked into the trap of wanting to ‘look good’ but do we ever stop & think… will it actually make me a better person? Will my friends love me more if I’ve got a six pack? Will I get promoted at work if I’ve got a thigh gap? There’s a difference between looking good & feeling good. Working out should make you feel like a better person, it should make you feel like a superhero, it should make you appreciate your body more & therefore make you want to take care of yourself. I train super hard because I absolutely love it, I lift weights because it makes me feel strong & I take the time to look after myself… but I still have a tum when I sit down. That tum ain’t going nowhere, no matter how hard I work, sweat & train. You can choose how you feel, you have the power to think positively so let’s say goodbye to all of those negative words you call yourself & hello to feeling proud of your body ????
