This Instagram User Is Calling BS On Those Before & After Transformation Photos

Instagram has been recently labeled as the social media that is worst for your mental health. The app did bring a whole subculture to our world. Insta hoes, sliding into DMs, Insta aesthetic. It’s not shocking that looking at idealized photos of strangers’ lives all day isn’t good for you!

A lot of Instagram users are trying to take back the platform and use it to promote body positive. Bless those people! User @bopo_tato, whose name is Lydia,  is one of Instagram’s many body posi warriors.

She shared to her 12,100 some followers a before and after photo. These types of photos are typically posted after someone has a major body transformation centered around weight loss or muscle gain. The two photos are usually taken a handful of months of years apart, but not Lydia’s

Lydia shared before and after photos that were taken on the same day. The one on the left is after a “full day of eating + hydration” while the photo on the right was taken right in the morning and is focused on “posture+sucking in…if you can’t tell in the second photo I’m not breathing LOL.”

She wanted to show her followers that weight gain isn’t a bad thing and before and after photos can be toxic. Her caption is super long, but is filled with insightful words on her body loving journey. It’s rife with inspo that you can utilize on your own body positive journey.
