7 Before and After Photos That Prove Things Aren't Always as They Seem
With perfectly round and well-lit booty pictures taking over our Instagram feeds, it's almost impossible to not want to get squatting to build that perfect Insta-tush for yourself, but one fitness blogger is using her platform to tell people that those photos aren't always as flawless as they seem. Meet Sara Puhto, a 21-year-old Finnish YouTuber on a mission to have her followers see her at all angles. Oh, and she goes by "Saggy Sara" — need we say more?
Sara uses her platform of over 27K Instagram followers as a way to dispel all the misconstrued messages about body image all over the internet. She posts photos side by side — some flexing, some not; some sitting, some standing — as a way to show that there's a lot more that goes on in a seemingly perfect photo. She's inspiring her followers to love themselves from all angles and sharing that any goal is achievable "with the right amount of determination." She shows that we can't hold ourselves to the standards of perfectly angled celebrity photos, because they might not show the other side of the photo for a reason.
"Don't think you can't because you're comparing a posed photo of a body to your everyday body," she wrote on Instagram. "Use them as motivation but don't get too caught up on them."
