You can’t edit real life
When you are queuing in the newspaper shop
Or sitting in the waiting room at the dentist
Those glossy mags sort of call out to you
One piqued my interest the other day; I generally try to stay away from popular culture
Bikini diets, magic weight loss solutions and the like
I flipped through just really looking at the images and it struck me…
We don’t know what images are real and which ones are fake anymore!
There is so much air brushing and touching up of these images
Can we really look upon them as something to strive for?
Our phones can even make our own images look better
Apps to edit photos are now all the rage
So when we look through someone’s social media feed..
Are we really seeing the reality?
Or are we seeing an edited version of their life
This can be really demoralising if you are looking and comparing to others
Believing that they all have what you want
- Desirable body image
And let’s be honest now, we are all guilty of comparing to others
But what if it’s all a lie?
What if you met them in real life and they were overweight, unhappy and as fed up and confused as you are about weight loss
This is why I work on core values with my ladies
- We work on body image
- Loving yourself
Because in this world of editing and photo shopping
The one thing that we can be sure of is our own reality
Work on that
And you’ll be freed from this comparison competition that we face every day
You’ll feel liberated from the claims that you must have a bikini body…
You will be able to accept that a bikini body is simply the act of putting a bikini ON your body
