Hey look, some fitspo images I’ve found on my dash in the last few hours
Lets get ~*~*~fitspired~*~*~ lollll
I would really recommend people to check out her photoshop tag - you just might find you fave fitspo photos to be actually just a result of photoshop.
Squats? No, photoshop!
What I got out of this is that fit girls looooook totally perfect even without Photoshop :)
The message above is actually the most common thing I read with these replies when in reality what you should be getting out of this is how “fitspo” is not exactly inspirational nor is it accurate. I get what you’re trying to say in this, but it’s missing the point.
RRRR this pisses me off
Who cares if its photoshopped? Its their inspiration to get FIT and Healthy, what does it matter what that inspiration is or where it comes from?
It matters because people who look at photoshopped images actually compare their bodies and faces to those images, and feel a ton of body dissatisfaction. This impacts people in a huge way. It’s not little re-touches here and there it’s massive changes.
I could go on with examples. People are literally getting surgeries and freaking out about the smallest things like their lower stomach and calling it a “pooch” when they’re still rather thin, even though that’s where your internal organs go. Recently I heard that people are freaking out about the fat that is by your arm pits, and when I asked why they said “i don’t see jennifer lawrence having it” and they show me a highly photoshopped image of her (of which she has spoken out against) which is below.
Yet she has it
People freak out over their stomach rolls even when they have visible abs and that is perfectly normal! Yet people don’t because they don’t see that in magazines so they think that there’s something wrong with them. People also freak out about cellulite and get upset when they see victoria secret ads and think that something is wrong with them because they don’t have it, but they do. You just don’t see them in the final product.
It’s not healthy to want achieve a physical attribute that you see on a model or on another persons body that something that doesn’t even exist on them. Not to mention how they have also won the genetic lottery, they exercise for their job, make up team, they have the money to eat organic and healthy foods, etc. You really shouldn’t be basing your health and motivational aspirations on models who have a huge advantage to the average person.
It is not healthy to use photoshopped images as your motivation because you’ll end up hurting yourself as a result through unhealthy methods like eating disorders. You won’t stop until you are satisfied. That’s why it’s important.
