The Instagram fitness star posted two back-to-back photos on Snapchat the day before her wedding to prove the power of ~angles~
Anna Victoria has been our Instagram fitness obsession for a while now. Yes, it's because her Fit Body Guide workouts are killer and her smoothie bowls are always on point, but it's her refreshing honesty that's kept us hooked—girl always keeps it really real and is all about body positivity. (See her response to our #LoveMyShape campaign!)
Well, last week she took it to the next level, sharing two photos on her Snapchat the day before her wedding. The first showed Anna standing in a full-length mirror, putting her impressive abs on full display. The second photo, taken sitting down, showed Anna with "stomach rolls"—you know, the thing every human has when they sit down and aren't sucking in or trying to take a selfie.
Still, the transformation between the two photos—taken just two minutes apart—is pretty shocking, and goes to prove how often all we see are "good angles." Anna's message: "Not every angle is your best angle, and that's OK."
You girls requested for me to share this after posting on snap last week Picture on the left was taken one day before the wedding and the picture on the right was taken... 2 minutes after! Someone recently said to me that we all have our good angles and we all have our bad angles, so why do we let our bad angles carry so much more weight than our good angles? If you focus on how bad you look in the bad angles, at least focus on how good you look in the good ones too!!

While it may not seem like a groundbreaking message, in a sea of filtered, flexed-to-the-max photos flooding our feeds, it sure feels impressive to see someone so willing to show off their "worst" angle to a following of nearly one million people. Here's hoping more celebs will take the hint, because, frankly, photos of "rolls" are just as important (if not more!) than all those six-pack pics. (Yes, we already know you're super fit, but we want to see you're human too!)
The takeaway: Don't be fooled by what you see in your Instagram feed, even from trainers or fitness celebs. And, as she points out in her Instagram caption, "If you focus on how bad you look in the bad angles, at least focus on how good you look in the good ones too!!" Preach.
