Did you know that looking at social media too much actually makes you more depressed? Everyone posts the most perfect version of their life on social media, which can start to make you feel like you aren’t having as much fun, or looking as thin and fit. Before you let it dampen your day, just remember that it’s all smoke and mirrors.
In proof, bloggers and fitness models from all around the world are posting what appear to be before and after weight loss photos, but really they were taken just seconds apart. The goal of this series is to promote body positivity by changing the ways we view “perfect bodies.” As these pictures prove, there’s no such thing as a perfect body, just people that are really good at posing.
