#CelluliteSaturday: la nueva tendencia que utilizan las mujeres en Instagram

Muchas veces tratamos de ocultar nuestras pequeñas imperfecciones, especialmente cuando estamos en público o delante de una cámara. Pero al final del día, siguen estando allí, formando parte de nosotros. De hecho, mientras algunas personas están obsesionadas con deshacerse de sus “imperfecciones físicas”, como patas de gallo, arrugas, exceso de grasa corporal o celulitis, a otras en realidad, les encanta lucirlas.

Si no lo crees, pregúntale a Kenzie Brenna, una joven canadiense de 26 años de edad, quien está intentando lograr que las mujeres no solo aprendan a aceptar la celulitis de sus cuerpos, sino que en realidad estén orgullosas de ella. Ahora Kenzie se encuentra detrás del hashtag#CelluliteSaturday y su meta es crear una campaña tan positiva, que haga que la celulitis parezca algo normal. De esta manera, ninguna mujer volverá a sentir vergüenza de mostrarse al mundo tal y como es.

💫#rg the genius behind #CelluliteSaturday @omgkenzieee💫 “Okay, here goes my WHOLE thought process with these photos. 💭 💭 💭 “Alriiiiiiight, this lighting is fucked, you look terrible.” “Also, the fuck is your face doing in photo 1?” “Lol whatever kinda funny.” “Okay post these to show the difference in angles.” “Nah don’t, your body looks wrecked.” “Who cares, people have already seen it.” “Yah but more of my friends are following me now, it’s too much.” “Nah they’ve seen this shit already.” “I guess you’re right.” I dunno how to explain to you guys that this shit is still hard for me but whatever, it is. At the end of the day this wrecked body is mine and I can’t change it. I CAN however change the way I think of it. (In baby steps) 👣👣👣👣👣” PREACH 🙌🙌

💕💕💕💕💕 cellulite Saturday is THE BEST. #Repost @omgkenzieee with @repostapp ・・・ If you all told me this time last year, I’d be doing this, I would have lost my shit on you. “Are you kidding?!” “I can’t show that!!” “It’s apart of myself I’ve been trying to get rid of for years!!” “Not until it’s gone.” “Not until I’m smoother.” “Not until I’m leaner.” “Not until I’m different.” The reason why these thoughts are particularly harmful in re to cellulite is that cellulite is LITERALLY harmless. It has nothing to do with health. Nothing to do with health. Btw, nothing to do with health. Nothing to do with; Physical capabilities. Agility. Stamina. None of it.

Ella sufrió de trastorno dismórfico corporal, una condición en la cual una persona se obsesiona con defectos imaginarios de su apariencia física. Pero hace unos meses, esta actriz y escritora canadiense decidió publicar fotos de sí misma, en las cuales muestra diferentes partes de su cuerpo donde la celulitis es prominente. Ella lo ve como un tipo de terapia, que la ayuda con la recuperación total de su trastorno.

Great post by @omgkenzieee 💜💜. Please read it. I understand. #Repost @omgkenzieee ・・・ Yaassssssssss kweens. You know what day it is! 👑 👸 🎉 Do I love this part of my body? No, absolutely not. No matter how many times I talk about it, no matter how many people support me, its engrained in me to understand that “if you have cellulite, that part of your body is not good looking.” And some people will read this and nod their head. I get it. But I also recognize that this is from social conditioning. IF YOU THINK for some reason that we are born with a natural distaste for certain body types then you are wrong. Let me give you this example: (This example slays btw) 🙏✨ If cellulite wasn’t attractive because its inherently in our DNA, then we wouldn’t also shame women for having body hair. Makes sense right? Body hair grows on us and yet we shave it off because smooth, white, young looking skin is more desirable than the other. But wait! It’s in our primitive mind to look for mates who can survive, so why do we instinctively think that body hair on a woman is unattractive? Considering body hair is developed by biological evolution. BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN RAISED TO THINK THAT. This is called cultural programming. This has nothing to do with what our cavemen minds think is attractive. And if you’ve been following my youtube videos I have spoke that our psychology cannot exist without the influence of our culture or the sub cultures around you. That would be called living in a “cultural vacuum” and it doesn’t exist. If you recognize this, it’s much easier to step out of your body and understand jot from a sociological perspective. You can learn so so much about yourself once you realize how our minds and bodies work!! 🙆💕🙆💕🙆 I am no exception to this, cellulite monster inside of me still reigns her ugly head sometimes, but I acknowledge that this is social conditioning and I will not bow down to it. I will try to love myself. Over and over again.❤️ No matter how uncomfortable it makes me, no matter how hard, not matter what anymore says: I am on a journey for self love and I WILL NOT STOP. 🙅🙌🚫 #cellulitesaturday #thisbody #embracethesquish #loveyourself

Pero ahora Brenna está consciente de que nadie es perfecto. Ella mantiene una dieta equilibrada y va al gimnasio cinco días a la semana, pero aun así tiene celulitis. Ella explica cómo la dismorfia corporales capaz de conducir a trastornos alimenticios, pero al final todo se trata de aceptación.

Según Brenna, ella ha intentado casi todo para remediar la celulitis, pero ningún método funciona. Recientemente ha perdido más de 50 libras y aunque la celulitis se ha reducido en gran medida, no ha desaparecido y probablemente nunca lo hará. El hashtag #CelluliteSaturday empieza a hacerse popular y la esperanza de Brenna es inspirar a otras mujeres a aceptar sus cuerpos tal y como son, al igual que lo ha hecho ella. Muchas están compartiendo fotografías:

Well it’s not #cellulitesaturday but I’m sure feeling the vibe 🙌 I remember a teacher once saying to me “girls who take ‘those’ kind of photos always have problems”. Maybe I do have problems. I have a problem with people whose opinions oppress others. I have a problem with the media taking our bopo movement, and only highlighting our pear shaped babes, resulting in not only a new ideal for society to desire, but still continuing to insinuate that the right kind of bodies are only thick in the approved places. I have a problem with people (children and adults) being bullied so bad that they feel taking their life is the only option they have. I have a problem with people who think being mean, just because they can be, is ok. I have a problem with people who think only modest women deserve respect. I have a problem with being told what I can and can’t do with my own damn body. And maybe I do have issues that stem from my dad. Maybe I am too sensitive for my own good. Pain is not linear and maybe I am a fucked up adult but I’m trying to work through the bits of my childhood that are broken. I am trying. So I’ll share the sassy pictures I take because I went way too long thinking I couldn’t. I am one of those girls and I’m fucking proud of that. #Repost @wingardiumleveveosa #onemillionagainstbodyshaming @aakashjikunwar

I swear these are the hardest pictures to post. First off, YO GIRL GOT A HAIRCUT. Bye bye dead ends🙋🏻 Secondly, it’s #cellulitesaturday which is by far the most challenging thing for me to post about. I really didn’t want to make this post. It’s a really vulnerable thing to so openly point out and I’m honestly not having the best day mentally. I’m really picking myself apart and I just want to hide under a rock.. but these are the times I need to push myself to be uncomfortable. I’ve got cellulite 🤷🏻‍♀️ I’ve got dimples, and little squishies and little pockets on the sides of my legs. My mom told me that ever since I was a baby I’ve had it, and it’s just never gone away. Oh 🐳 I got a new bathing suit today, and once I put it on I thought “okay I’ll just add this to my ‘once I’m skinny pile'” and then I thought HELL NO. If I’m going to keep putting things off until I’ve hit some goal weight or certain size of clothing, I’m never going to do anything with my life. Sooo I’m going to be on the beach rocking it this summer, regardless of my size, cellulite, or weight. So, all I’m trying to really say is society’s standards and the thoughts in my head can go f themselves 🙃 #bodypositivity #selflove #bopowarrior #cellulitesaturday #everybodyisabikinibody #fuckbeautystandards

“Hago ejercicios 5 veces a la semana, cardio y yoga. Me alimento saludablemente y tomo mucha agua todos los días. Solía hacerme masajes, usar cremas y hasta consideré hacerme una cirugía, así que no me digas que debo estar más tonificada o hacer esto y aquello. No me digan que utilice sus productos. Amigos, mi celulitis está para quedarse y estoy perfectamente bien con eso”.
