Maggie Fierro's inspirational weight-loss journey has inspired thousands around the country, but that hasn't kept her from being honest when it comes to her newly toned and sculpted figure. In a side-by-side photo, the mother-of-three shared her so-called flaws to encourage fans to love their bodies as they are. "Guys, I've had three beautiful babies.. that's three giant pregnancies... along with three chances of stretch marks," she said in the post. "This body has been through a whole lot of changes! For that reason I will never judge someone else for their body. I don't know their story or what they've been through or the true strength that is within them. Imperfections make you real, approachable, human and one of a kind."
Hoping to spread some much-needed body positivity, Canadian fitness blogger, Brittany Erin shared this incredibly empowering transformation picture of herself. "Sometimes it's hard not to compare yourself to people you see online," she admitted in the caption. "But Instagram is soo unrealistic. People (including me) post highlight reels of their lives! No one walks around with flexed abs all day and everyone has days that aren't "Instagram worthy." So focus on your own journey and be proud of what you accomplish and don't believe everything you see online."
Cass Hines has proven to be all-around #fitnessgoals with her incredibly toned and sculpted figure. Which is why it was both surprising and refreshing when she shared this side-by-side comparison of her body flexed and in a relaxed and normal state. "I'd like to consider myself reasonably fit and reasonably healthy," she said in the post, "but it doesn't mean I go without imperfections and I think this is the case for 99 percent of the population... showing you my rolls, because the reality is I look like this the majority of the time, and I look like the right [in] Instagram pics only. It's great to be proud of all your hard work and you should be able to show it off if you want to, but it's also important to be real." Amen.
British Instagram star Emily Louise shared this incredible empowering post with her fans to give them a much-needed reality check about social media. Addressing the photos that were taken just seconds apart, she said: "I wouldn't want anyone who follows my page to think that I walk around with big bum and flat stomach all the time, because I don't. It's really easy to think the people you see on here are super put together and confident and happy, I get that. But please remember, while social media is fun, don't compare your actual life to someone's *very* polished virtual life (mine included)."
