Una star del Fitness e di Instagram mostra il lato nascosto dietro i suoi scatti

Trovare foto non modificate e senza filtri su Instagram è una rarità. Ecco perché quando la fitness blogger Anna Victoria ha postato un selfie mostrando i suoi “rotoli” sullo stomaco il web ha reagito con una standing ovation. La 27enne californiana è conosciuta tra i suoi 845mila follower per il suo fisico atletico e la sua passione per l’attività fisica, ma ha deciso di mostrare quel particolare, che la rende comune a tutte le donne, per raccontare la verità su Instagram.

There are two reasons I want to share this with you ladies: one reason is because I want you to know having skin fold over on your stomach when you sit or to have "rolls" is not anything to hate or be ashamed of. The other reason is because while I say this, there have been times where if I ever found myself in front of a mirror where I am sitting and I see my stomach, I automatically think "ew!" because this is what society has conditioned me to think. Your stomach does not have to be perfectly flat to be healthy, your stomach does not have to be perfectly flat for you to love yourself, and your stomach does not have to be perfectly flat to be confident and beautiful and an all around amazing person. As a society, we shouldn't let physical characteristics set the standard for whether we deserve to love ourselves or not. Everyone deserves to love themselves, however I know that's easier said than done. What's amazing to me and what I have witnessed with the fbg girls is most of the time they start learning to love themselves more on their journey not because of the physical changes, but because of the mental and emotional changes that come from dedicating yourself, pushing yourself, and seeing just how strong you really are. (what we call "non-physical progress" and is just as, if not more important than physical progress). That type of strength and beauty can only be seen and felt from within. 💪💗 #fbggirls www.annavictoria.com/guides

Spesso i social contribuiscono a dar di loro un’immagine irrealistica di perfezione: vita perfetta (sì, ok, anche giro-vita perfetto), corpo perfetto, casa perfetta, vacanze perfette, dieta perfetta e spesso anche marito perfetto e cane perfetto. Ma, ancora una volta: è davvero tutto così…perfetto?

Ci sono due motivi per i quali voglio condividere questo con voi donne”, scrive nella didascalia, “Innanzitutto voglio che tu sappia che non c’è niente di cui vergognarsi per i “rotoli” che si formano sullo stomaco quando ci pieghiamo. La seconda ragione è che anch’io in passato ho avuto questa reazione, perché la società mi ha condizionato affinché la pensassi così”.

Me 1% of the time vs. 99% of the time. And I love both photos equally. Good or bad angles don't change your worth ❤️ I recently came across an article talking about how one woman stated she refuses to accept her flaws, because she doesn't see them as flaws at all. I LOVED that because it sends such a powerful message that our belly rolls, cellulite, stretch marks are nothing to apologize for, to be ashamed of, or to be obsessed with getting rid of! As I'm getting older, I have cellulite and stretch marks that aren't going away, and I welcome them. They represent a life fully lived (for 28 years so far :)) and a healthy life and body at that. How can I be mad at my body for perfectly normal "flaws"? This body is strong, can run miles, can lift and squat and push and pull weight around, and it's happy not just because of how it looks, but because of how it feels. So when you approach your journey, I want you to remember these things: I will not punish my body I will fuel it I will challenge it AND I will love it 💗💗💗 If you're following my page, you're a part of helping me spread this message and creating this movement – thank you. #fbggirls www.annavictoria.com/guides
