SOCIAL media isn’t always real and one fitness influencer is here to prove it.
She reminded her viewers that posing and lighting was everything in terms of social media and to not get caught up in comparison.
Bree (@breelenehan) shared the video with over 400,000 TikTok followers.
She posed in a brown sports bra and matching shorts, smiling for a photo.
“What gets posted online,” she said, beaming brightly.
Moments later, she revealed her unposed body and stomach to show the reality of social media.
“What doesn’t,” she said, revealing what her body actually looked like.
Another clip showed the fitness influencer doing push-ups from further away.
In a closer take, she explained that angles were everything and that reality was not always flattering.
In more flattering angles, Bree showed off her biceps and muscle gains.
She followed up the clips with shots of her cellulite and rolls.
“Social media doesn’t show it all, please don’t compare,” she said, shaking her stomach fat.
“I leave regular reminders like this online because you might not see it often enough and I want you to know it’s okay if your body wobbles, jiggles, dimples, rolls, folds, bloats & feels soft.
“Just because you don’t see it regularly online doesn’t mean that those features don’t exist on 99% of the population, okay?”
People flooded her comments to thank her for the body-positive message.
“I needed this just now. I almost felt like I hated myself again,” said one commenter.
“Thank you for being a human and showing it!” said another.
Some believed her perspective set a great example for younger girls.
“I have the most respect for you for posting this, this is so healthy for young girls to see,” said one commenter.
