A sociedade atual é cheia de imposições estéticas, e uma delas é parecer magra. Essa pressão se dá principalmente sobre as mulheres. As pessoas acima do peso são frequentemente alvo de ridicularização e discriminação. A realidade é que muitos se esforçam dia a dia para parecerem magros, não só pela saúde, mas também pela pressão exercida pela sociedade.
☀️Good morning and happy weekend!!! I’m off to the gym! Right now I’m really into morning yoga(just started learning) and heavy lifting, so why not start my weekend off with a good workout! 🧘🏼♀️🏋🏼♀️ Do you have any weekend plans?? . . Also… You know when you are fiddling with your phone and you accidentally screenshot? Well this selfie isn’t one of those…. but if l to SWIPE the next one will be. You asked for real Stephanie… here you go. Hahaha suckers. 😈 . . . Instagram vs. MY reality hahaha
Stephanie Seabrook é uma mulher de 30 anos que depois de muito esforço conseguiu superar seu excesso de peso. Apesar de sua felicidade em 2015, ela se envolveu em uma confusão depois de publicar uma foto da sua barriga nas redes sociais. Muitos usuários começaram a expressar seu desprezo em relação à sua pessoa.
Sure. She gained weight. She also gained: Self love. Freedom. A love of delicious foods. An open mind. Sleep. A sense of self worth. Enjoyment in life. Peace with her body. Room in her mind for more important things. The time to relax. The knowledge of what and who she needs in her life. A sense of humor. HAPPINESS. (She also gained a clean mirror! 😆) 🤔 Gaining doesn’t seem like such a bad thing after all! Remember: the fat on our bodies doesn’t define who we are! What matters is what WE get out of life and what we leave behind for others. Enjoy those fries, sleep in when you need to or if you miss a workout don’t stress… there is always tomorrow! I choose to live with moderation and not deprivation. I will never forget being out a bar with my best friends and everyone was drinking except me. Which is fine but I said no to the drink because of the calories and I had goals. You know what I remember from that night 5 years ago? That I said no to a drink because of the calories. I didn’t remember the fun we had. I don’t remember the games of pool we probably played. Or how many times we laughed. I was even sober. No. I remember feeling guilty for wanting to indulge. I remember feeling scared of becoming fat again. I remember feeling insecure that I was still “the fat girl” at the bar. Shitty, right? Now, I chose to LIVE in the moment and not think about the trivial things. Think I’m fat? Ok, cool. Think I’ve failed? No prob. Think I should stfu? No gonna happen. And also not my prob. I’m too busy having fun, eating food, working out because I like to and not because I “have” to and living life to the fullest. Other people’s opinions about us shouldn’t effect us they way they do. (Easier said than done, I know). At the end of the day their words do to us what we allow them to. I will no longer allowed them to hurt me. But this is YOUR life. So do with it whatever you want!!! I wanted to eat the French fries… so I did. And OMG they’re good! 😂 Love you all! . . . . . . #mentalhealth #fatdoesntdefineyou #behappy #weightloss #weightgain #selfworth #happiness #mmmfrenchfries #fitfam #fitspo #igainedalotmorethanjustweight
Stephanie tirou a foto depois de passar por uma cirurgia para remover a gordura de seu abdômen. Vários usuários expressaram apoio, mas outros a atacaram alegando que ela havia feito vários truques na imagem para parecer mais magra. Ela decidiu responder da seguinte maneira:
“No começo, tentei ignorar e não pensar nos comentários, mas começou a piorar progressivamente e com mais frequência.”
My favorite thing about Instagram is meeting so many incredible people every day! I am seriously in awe of you guys. 🌼 @chantellevsg tagged me in this beautiful yet familiar photo! Her transformation is SO crazy inspiring. 🌷 Please swipe to see her amazing weight loss transformation and beautiful words she wrote regarding her skin. Show some love!! 🌺 @chantellevsg, thank you so much for letting me share your photos. You are a beautiful woman. ♥️ . . . . . . . . . #selflove #selfworth #fitfam #honoryourbody #loveyoursoul #fitspo #weightloss #love #power #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney
Stephanie não entendeu por que sua foto enfurecia muita gente, em vários aspectos ela explicou que a fotografia não tinha truques de photoshop. Isso irritou mais usuários, tanto que alguns começaram a ameaçá-la de morte por “ser tão patética”. Stephanie começou a investigar de onde as ameaças estavam vindo e descobriu que elas eram de uma garota que a conheceu no Instagram, e que a sua intenção era colocar mais usuários contra Stephanie.
Because I aim to please and @runningvixen requested it… here is a comparison of my pre-surgery, before my gain, 60lbs heavier and today’s stomach. It’s crazy how the body adapts. I think my stomach is adjusting nicely after the gain. Only for me to ruin it with a baby at some point. (Jk, kinda🤪) Questions? Ask away! . . . . . . . . #tummytuck #looseskin #weightgain #weightloss #fitness #fitfam #fitspo #selflove #selfworth #loveyourself #healthylifestyle #transformation
Stephanie começou a sofrer muita ansiedade e começou a ganhar peso. Ela não queria desapontar seus seguidores do Instagram, então ela começou a retocar suas fotografias, mas ela não conseguia esconder a verdade por um longo tempo.
It’s crazy to think that I wasn’t much happier at 185 from 340. It was like superficial happiness. Like “oh I have a ‘great’ body now so life will be easier and I’m getting attention.” Sure at 24 I thought that was happiness but oh was I wrong. I clearly did not learn everything I needed to so I started to gain weight; my journey was not over. Around the time my relationship with Kaycee became turbulent I started gaining weight. I went back into my old eating habits when I am upset or stressed. Fast food mostly. It was comforting again. But then I realized I was gaining weight I was too ashamed to admit it. I felt like I let myself down and let everyone else down. I tried to alter my photos to try make myself feel happy again. Thinking people will comment and say I looked good and maybe that would be the motivation I needed to succeed. Nope. That was a huge learning moment in my life. 1. Not all people are who they seem or portray. 2. Being dishonest will never bring happiness. Once I was, inappropriately, outed the flood gates of hate opened. After months of trying to deal with that I shut this account down for almost a year. On Jan. 20th, 2017 I decided no one gets to make me feel bad ever again, including myself. I came back, admitted my mistakes and moved forward. Sometimes it takes a period of time for reflection to figure out what changes need to be made. I needed to take time for me to heal and find myself again. I learned never to apologize for me and to just love and do the right thing every time. I have never been happier in my life and my relationship with my husband has never been better. I am human and will always make mistakes but it’s about not repeating the same mistakes. I know you have had hard times. But try to look at them as a positive. Because hard times are what allow us to grow and learn. Right? Don’t let a number or fat on your body limit your love for yourself. Errbody needs more LOVE! If you ever feel like you need to talk, vent or just need someone to listen I am always here. ♥️
Stephanie teve tanta pressão em sua conta no Instagram que decidiu fechá-la e procurou ajuda psicológica para perder peso e se sentir bem novamente. Ela mencionou em diferentes ocasiões que sem sua família ela não poderia ter superado esse processo, graças a eles e a sua força de vontade ela conseguiu perder 20 quilos.
Nothing better than morning belly when you're losing weight. Feeling and seeing progress is so motivating. I get a lot of messages asking how I stay motivated. And honestly I just love how I feel enough to keep going. It's a hard question to answer because everyone is motivated differently. I started back on my weight loss journey back in January. I woke up one day and it just clicked. I was done hating myself and being sad about who I was. Ever since then I have done things to help me get to my goals. When I eat something I ask myself "how am I going to feel five minutes after I eat this?". That helps me stay accountable when it comes to food and also addresses my emotional eating. It's hard being fat and it's hard getting fit. You just need to pick the "hard" you want to live with. (That's what she said😜Haha!) I make one healthy choice at a time. Whether it is a meal or a workout. Just take it a day at a time, stay positive and know you have the capability of reaching your goals. The hardest part is that first step, but it's also the most exciting!! #progress #weightloss #fitfam #fitspo #fitness #workout #dontquitgetfit #findyourhappy #health
