Remember those extra treats I pointed out??? I attempt to enjoy moderation, but let's be honest I'm human and that i love food and that doesn't always happen.?? // I wanted to post this since i have received lots of questions lately for example "how can you never look bloated?", "how do you never get zits?", and "how do you not have stretchmarks?", ect. First, I definitely do get bloated (???), I definitely have occasional breakouts (hello hormones), and that i really do have stretchmarks (though they’ve faded). I could give you tips and tricks on how to fight bloating and zits and stretch marks, but I think it's more important for everyone to understand that these situations are totally normal! And nothing to become embarrassed with or embarrassed about. Instagram is usually a highlight reel of sorts, and there is no problem with concentrating on the positive! But it's so important to keep it real and don’t forget that most the pictures the thing is while scrolling (including mine) are people's "best foot forward". Obviously I wish to take photos in good lighting and show my favorite angles, but I never want that to be misconstrued as saying I don't have bad ones or never look bloated. Most people are human. Everyone is beautiful. The bottom line is to spend less time picking ourselves apart and much more time seeing how beautiful, amazing, and miraculous our bodies are — bloating, zits, stretchmarks, and all.?? . . . . #bbgmoms #bbgmums #bbgcommunity #bbg #bbglife #fit #fitchick #fitmom #fitness #fitlife #keepitreal #happy #healthy #bloated #selflove #workout #fitspo #fitspiration #realtalk #fitnessmotivation #motivationmonday
Wells posted the photo to show that they does get bloated, and does have stretchmarks too (though she explains they have faded).
“I could give you tricks and tips on how to fight bloating and zits and stretch marks, but I think it’s more essential for everybody to understand these situations are totally normal, and nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed about,” she continues.
The social networking star – that has 609k followers – explains?it’s vital that you require images on Instagram so seriously, simply because they only show some of someone’s life.
“Instagram is often a highlight reel of sorts, and there’s nothing wrong with concentrating on the positive – but it is so important to keep it real and remember that most [of] the pictures you see while scrolling (including mine) are people’s ‘best foot forward,’ ” writes Wells. “Of course I want to take photos in good lighting and show my favorite angles, but I never want that to be misconstrued as saying I don’t have bad ones or never look bloated.”
