Scrolling through Instagram photos could get pretty depressing when you start comparing yourselves to the perfect bodied bikini models posing for pictures. But now, bloggers and fitness models are proving that the pics we see online are not what we think - the models in the pics most likely look like that just 1% of the time.

Bloggers and fitness models from all over are posting what may look like before and after body transformation photos, but really are pics taken just seconds apart! Every single photo promotes body positivity and reveals that good posture, lighting, flexing muscles and striking the perfect picture poses could change the view more than you think. This, once more, proves how fake Instagram life truly is. Keep on scrolling to see the shocking differences, and feel free to add your own pics to the list!

This was never intended as a weight loss before and afterphoto. The Photos were on opposite sides, And used to show that perfect Instagram photos with perfect girls in them aren't as they seemed.

Thank you girls so much for posting pictures like this. Really. You can´t imagine how motivating, calming and encouraging it is for me. I really needed to see and hear this. I needed to know that it is ok not to have the "six pack" while I am sitting on the couch. And also that it is not a failure. Doing exercise should be about how we feel, not so much about how do we look, right? Now I can feel much better after my workout when I know it is still ok to have "belly wrinkle" while sitting. :-)

I think you have your left and right mixed up. Looking at the photos, you're definitely flexing in the photo on the right.
