Fitness Blogger Photoshops Her Flaws in a Powerful Body Image Video

A fitness blogger and fitness personality with millions of subscribers has released a powerful video about body image.

“You shouldn’t give advice when you’re so fat” and “Trainer? Really? Tone up the belly fat and love handles,” are just some of the remarks Ho receives on a daily basis.

The 23-year-old American blogger is a certified fitness instructor with more than 1 million combined social media followers.

Ho is on a mission to help women fight their body demons.

“When you look in the mirror, are you happy with what you see?” she wrote on her blog. “Or do you stare at yourself, pinching your fat away, lifting up your butt, pushing in your boobs, wishing you looked like a VS supermodel?”

“It’s hard to be content with the shape of your body when people are constantly telling you how fat you are, how much weight you need to lose, how much weight you need to gain. The body shaming, the mean comments, the cyber bullying — all of this messes with us … and it hurts,” she wrote.

Ho was sick of being body-shamed online. So she did something about it.

She created a video called The ‘Perfect’ Body, where she “makes changes” to her body by Photoshopping herself in real time. Ho gives herself thinner thighs, a smaller waist, bigger bust and booty and changes her lips and eye colour. At the end, she still isn’t satisfied.

It’s a poignant video that make you rethink the way we see our bodies.
