Un estudio reciente ha revelado el sorprendente dato de que aproximadamente el 90% de las mujeres tienen celulitis. Es una condición que afecta a todo tipo de mujeres, sin que guarde relación directa con el peso o la forma física, y que no supone un problema de salud. Pero sí hay una característica común a casi todas las mujeres que la sufren: no se suele presumir de ella. Hasta ahora. Una nueva tendencia de Instagram quiere convertir los sábados en los días de la celulitis (Cellulite Saturday).
La iniciativa surgió de la actriz, escritora e influencer canadiense Kenzie Brenna, que ha querido, a través de una publicación de Instagram, normalizar la presencia de celulitis en varias zonas de su cuerpo. Además, en el texto que acompaña a las imágenes, deja claro que no comprará ningún tratamiento para la celulitis que pretendan venderle, ya que los ha probado casi todos y ha visto que su eficacia es, en el mejor de los casos, solo temporal.
IF YOU TRY TO SELL ME YOUR CELLULITE TREATMENT, I DON'T WANT IT. 😷 Now thats out of the way... This girl goes to the gym 4-5x a week. She weightlifts, includes cardio and plyometrics, she eats a personal well balanced diet and has for the last year. For those of you who comment and tell me "if you only lost ten pounds your cellulite would go away," without having researched my page to see I have lost over 50 pounds and yes my cellulite appear has reduced but it has not "gone away." Here are the stats again: 93% of women have cellulite. AND- You have a 90% chance of developing cellulite if you're a woman. 🙆💕If those stats don't make you feel at home and normal in your body I don't know what will 💕🙆 We have made it a "COSMETIC issue" not an indication of health. This is straight from the doc's mouth, not mine. It has to do with a combination of genetics and hormones. Which you can really only fuck with to a certain extent. THE ONLY WAY TO REMOVE CELLULITE IS TO REMOVE FAT. Can you remove fat through a topical cream? By massaging it? By drinking green tea? By rubbing coconut oil on yourself? That's not how it works. Stop this misinformation right now. 👏Cellulite is normal. And the beauty industry capitalizes on saying we need it removed.👏 Again, I'm not going to shame a woman for trying to work to get rid of hers I completely understand and respect the decision to do so. This message isn't for her. This message is for women who crave acceptance, self love and want appreciation for their bodies as they exist right now. Also sorry for the dbl watermark, I saw some people using my photos and cropped out my name from them 🙃 how nice! #cellulitesaturday #mermaidthighs #effyourbeautystandards #bodypositivity #nobodyshame #lovetheskinyourein #thisiswhatfitlookslike
Brenna ha servido de inspiración a cientos de usuarias de Instagram que han decidido compartir sus imágenes en el #CelluliteSaturday, dando lugar a un nuevo movimiento body positive que veremos si sigue triunfando en los próximos sábados.
Self love is not a destination. 📍 It's not like one day you arrive and the pursuit is over, and you just stop.🚫 Quite the contrary. And sometimes it won't feel like you're getting anywhere. Which is why you have to celebrate EVERY victory. 🎉🎉Every little thing that you have made the choice to do differently in order to open yourself up for self love. Like not feeling guilty about eating something. Eating in front of other people. Saying yes to an invite. Wearing shorts. Having your arms out. Asking for help. Not weighing yourself. Not avoiding the mirror. Choosing love over hate. Not feeling like it's your fault. Whatever it is, just let it sink in that YOU DID THAT!💕💖 On the flip side, the journey to self love will have many set backs, many times when you choose struggle over advancement. Many times you'll find yourself swirling down into that really scary pit you used to be in. 🌪 But you are strong. 💪And you have victories to remind you that you HAVE changed. 👏🏻And once you do something you've never done before, you're never the same. It can never be taken away from you. Even when you get there, to a place in your mindset that loving comes easy...even then you can't stop.👊🏻 I am not immune to bad days, triggers, obsessive thoughts, relapses, questions of my value...there will always be something new to try to continue to push you outside your comfort zone. And when you get the opportunity, just say yes, and the celebrate!💥 Sending lots of love! Just do you babes🙏🏻 Xoxo Allie
Last night I wore a costume that showed my thighs in all their glory. It's weird, I didn't learn to hate my thighs until college. Maybe it was one too many pairs of jeans that rubbed through the thighs or friends who complained about their own leg jiggle. But I do know I've always had #thundathighs and I wasn't always self conscious about them. When I was 19 though I bought my first cellulite cream 🙄. Slowly, I'm remembering to love my thighs. They're always gonna touch, jiggle, and have dimples. (TBH, the only gap I'll ever have is the one between my teeth). But they more importantly help me lift, run, and dance my way into self love. And for that I've gotta be pretty grateful. Hope every had and continues to have happy & safe & self-love-filled Halloweens! 🐙😍
It's #cellulitesaturday woooohooooo!! I'm wearing a romper to my sons game today. So many people around. In the past I would have been SO self conscious of having my legs out. Of showing my cellulite to the world. As if it was a terribly horrific thing that no one else had and I should be ashamed of. And sitting with shorts on? Omg I died, I'd drape a sweater over my dimpled sides or a napkin or my purse- however I could cover them. As you can see, I've come to realize that cellulite is not something to be afraid of. The dimples on my legs are not something I allow to dictate my life and what I can wear anymore. The ripples on my thighs when I cross my legs, like in this photo, they hold no power over me. It's part of who I am, no matter a size 4 or 18 and anywhere in between, I have learned to live peacefully, and fashionably with my cellulite. And when I honor her, she releases her hold over me and I can get back to just doing me! So, as always babes, just do you! Release the hold that those negative beliefs have on you. Xoxo Allie
