Check out my transformation! It took me 15 minutes. Wanna know my secret? Well firstly I ditched the phonewallet (fwallet) cause that shit is lame, swapped my bather bottoms to black (cause they're a size bigger & black is slimming), Smothered on some fake tan, clipped in my hair extensions, stood up a bit taller, sucked in my guts, popped my hip- threw in a skinny arm, stood a bit wider #boxgap, pulled my shoulders back and added a bit of a cheeky/Im so proud of my results smile. Zoomed in on the before pic- zoomed out on the after & added a filter. Cause filters make everything awesome.

What's my point? Don't be deceived by what you see in magazines & on Instagram. You never see the dozens of other pics they took that wernt as flattering. Photoshop can make a pig look hotter then Beyonce.

Wow, and just when you thought women took hours to get ready, we now have proof they only need 15 minutes to change


I've noticed in abs shots, when they're trying to sell abs rollers etc, they always pop the hip and stand so that the abdominal wall is stretched to the max, not a position you'd probably ever use in real life situations.

Plus, I read that stars/personalities and such always generally have side shots because they are more flattering to the figure; any shot taken directly front-on will make a person look bigger than they want to look in a photo.

This made me laugh since I tend to like the direct front shots. But then again I'm not a woman. We think.

A fake transformation. Similar to all those women in fashion/style magazines--they're all airbrushed and photoshopped. It's not real.

Reminds me of a story on an LA plastic surgeon--he and his wife competed in bodybuilding shows, etc. I thought, wow, his wife's transformation is impressive and he is in great shape.

The only problem was that both had had massive amounts of plastic surgery in order to look like that. I can't believe they were even allowed to compete in BB shows.
