Con la cuenta de @saggysara, la joven está rompiendo mitos sobre los influencers de Instagram y lo que significa tener el cuerpo perfecto. Sara, quien ahora es ella misma influyente, se ha dado a la tarea de demostrar la realidad detrás de las fotos “perfectas” que inundan las redes sociales.
Sara nos demuestra la realidad detrás de cámaras, y lo que llegamos a ver.

Sara Puhto es una joven de 21 años. De origen danés, actualmente está estudiando en África. Con su cabello color turquesa, numerosos tatuajes y varios piercings, ha logrado llamar la atención a favor del movimiento #BodyPositive. Con unas cuantas fotos que subió a Instagram, logró demostrar que las apariencias engañan. Además, la postura y los ángulos desde donde te saquen la foto tienen mucho que ver. Un cuerpo perfecto es aquel que te gusta, con el cual te sientas cómodo. Y esa es la misión de Sara; que las personas dejen de buscar la perfección inalcanzable.
Booty pop vs reality🍑🌿 Theres such an obsession in society around having a big booty. Seeing all these big bootys on Instagram and comparing yours to theirs. I used to be so obsessed with growing my booty and would be so frustrated when my booty didn’t look like all the perfect ones I saw on Instagram when I looked at mine from different angles. But the truth is, it’s all about posing. Most of them don’t look round and peachy 24/7 and aren’t smooth, it’s completely normal to have cellulite, stretch marks, bumps, just uneven skin in general!! And it’s nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about!! We aren’t porcelain dolls with smooth skin. We aren’t meant to be “perfect” Barbie dolls. We are human, we are imperfect and that’s okay!! Love your body, thank it for allowing you to live and experience life. Don’t hate and punish yourself for things that are completely normal and human. 🌴☀️ —————————————— . . . #letsbereal #stopcomparing #loveyoself #flawsandall #bopo #glutes #bootypics #bootypop
Sucking in vs relaxed ☺️🌿 These photos were taken a minute apart, on the left I'm sucking in my tummy and on the right I'm relaxing it. This is to show you guys that I can appear to be lean but in reality when I relax my tummy, it ain't as lean as it seems 😬 I used to obsess about being lean and losing fat. Currently I'm not the leanest I've been weight wise, I'm actually the heaviest I've been in a year, and that's completely okay because I'm also the strongest I've ever been. Both physically and mentally. I now use double the amount of weights than I did before when I was at my leanest weight. I can't describe how happy, strong and confident I feel now! It no longer bothers me that I have fat on my body because I know that it's a completely normal thing to have. Our bodies are constantly changing, every day, every hour. So don't let a bad body image day get you down and make you think you need to crash diet or exercise excessively because that'll just wear you out. Instead look at your body and know that whatever you're looking at is perfectly fine! It's what makes you, you. We are all different, we shouldn't have to conform to one "ideal" body type. Diversity is beautiful, being unique is beautiful! So love yourself and do what makes you feel happy! Feel confident with your body, whether it's flexed or when it's relaxed. No amount of fat loss or muscle gain will make you happy if you're not comfortable with who you are first. Just know that you are amazing and beautiful no matter what. So look in the mirror at some point today and tell yourself you're beautiful af and can accomplish anything this week throws at you! 🌴☀️ —————————————— . . . #lawofattraction #bodypositivity #mondaymotivation #lifeisgreat #dowhatyoulove #dowhatyouwant #progressnotperfection #beforeandafter #bodyimage #flexing #bikinibody #vegan #vegansofig #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #weightlifting #selflove #youarebeautiful #veganfitness #loa #fitnessmotivation #honesty #screwthescale #weightlossjourney #beyou #beconfident #selfconfidence #embraceyourself
Sus posts han inspirado a miles. Todo comenzó junto con su novio, a quien le pidió que le sacara fotos. En las primeras, está posando y sumiendo el estómago. En las segundas, está relajada. Todo esto sucedió en un espacio de máximo dos minutos. Con esto, ella demuestra que aunque aparezca viéndose de una cierta manera, no es así. Después de subir sus fotografías a Instagram, al cabo de unas cuantas horas, vio que tenía alrededor de mil likes. Los comentarios eran todos similiares: “gracias por tu honestidad” o “me abriste los ojos a la realidad de las cosas”. Han escrito artículos sobre Sara en revistas japonesas, inglesas y americanas. Pero a ella eso no le importa. Simplemente quiere que la gente se acepte, tal y como es.
Self conscious in Dresses 🌿 You know those articles that say “dress for your body shape” and “what not to wear if you have *insert inanimate object* body shape”. Those articles made me realise that I had no curves and I should wear clothing that made me appear to have curves. I didn’t know why I had to make myself appear to have curves. I was so insecure about what I was wearing, especially with dresses. I have a wide torso. I don’t have a small or curvy waist. Growing up I hated my body and thought that if I could somehow change my body, I would be happier. But it doesn’t work like that. Don’t let articles or anyone, including yourself, make you feel bad about your body. We shouldn’t be compared to objects, because we are not objects. We are all unique and have different bodies. Allow yourself to live, don’t let a small thing make you hate your body or stop you from wearing what you want. Don’t take your body for granted. Love it for allowing you to function everyday. 🌴☀️ —————————————— . . . #bodylove #wearwhatyoulike #bodyshape #bodyposi #youreworthit #believeinyou #selflove #selfesteem
Booty pop 🍑🌿 I was scrolling through my old photos and came across these photos where I was trying to take one of those sandy bum pics 😬 I posted the right one back in January, but the left is the reality behind that photo ☺️ I still sometimes get a slight pang of sadness and jealousy when I see all the big beautiful bums on instagram and wish I could magically have what they have. Because sometimes I feel like all my booty gains are gone when I take photos where it looks smaller, but then I remember that I shouldn't compare my body to theirs. I have a great booty and so do they! It's all about posing/angles and nobody looks like that all the time. There's nothing wrong with posting a good photo of your booty, you should post it if you feel like it! Just remember that when you're scrolling through social media and see all the posed bums that you too have a great bum and that nobody looks like that 24/7 ☺️ It seems like big butts are the thing that so many people want currently. But remember that you don't need a big booty to be beautiful. All butts are good butts ☺️ All of our bodies are different and you don't need a specific body type to fit into what society defines as beautiful!! It's stressful and so messed up that body parts and types are going in and out of style- before it was being really thin, now it's having a big booty. That shouldn't be a thing. It causes so much stress and self hate to people who do not have these things. I know it's hard but instead of trying to obtain these things, love how you look now. Not how you'll look if you loose X amount of weight or get a bigger booty. Because trust me when you get to those things you'll just want something more. Be comfortable in your own skin no matter what angle, posed or unposed, and you'll radiate beauty! 🌴☀️ —————————————— . . . #bopowarrior #bootypop #allbodiesaregoodbodies #bootyfordays #bootybuilding #instagramvsreallife #beforeafter #selfconfidence #youareyou #dontchange #acceptyourself #bodypositive #lawofattraction #everyoneisbeautiful #selflove #bepresent #findyourself #dontcare #cellulite #effyourbeautystandards
Con la enorme cantidad de imágenes que pululan en la web mostrando cuerpos perfectos, el trabajo que hace Sara es de suma importancia. Modelos e influencers se muestran al ojo público de una manera que hace imposible a sus fans verse igual que ellas. Lo que @saggysara quiere que entiendan, es que no lucen así. Hay miles de trucos, como photoshop o algo tan sencillo como posar, que es lo que ella demuestra. “La crueldad de la edición y retoques digitales que le hacen a millones de fotos es increíble. Y es solo para encajar dentro de lo considerado “bonito”. Sabemos que los estándares de belleza todavía matan a muchas niñas de todo el mundo”.
Instagram vs reality 😬🌿 Sometimes it's funny to think about how posed some of my Instagram photos are 😂 On the left I'm posing pretending to be all casual, just chilling on a bridge. When in reality I was waiting for all the other people to cross the bridge so I could run in and get a few photos before panic running off to move for all the people starting to cross the bridge behind me 🙃 But in all seriousness, photos are not reality. So this is why we should never compare our life to someone's on social media. We pick the best parts and most flattering angles. So when you see 'bad photos' of yourself don't let them get you down, learn to appreciate your body from all angles. Don't have a goal of losing a certain amount of weight or looking a certain way for a holiday or to look good in photos. Because that'll lead to unnecessary pressure and sometimes disappointment. Life's too serious, learn to laugh at yourself and be okay with your body rather than hating on it. These photos may seem overdone but I love doing them and it's just a reminder for all of those who need it today 🌴☀️ —————————————— . . . #bopowarrior #allbodiesarebeautiful #bodyconfidence #beforeandafter #nobodyshame #loveyourbody #healthyhabits #selfesteem #selfacceptance #lawofattraction #thankyourbody #youareworthit #youareunique #flaws #insecurities #instagramvsreallife
Instagram isn’t reality 🌿 It’s so easy to post a photo similar to the left and pretend that there was no posing, flexing or planning behind the photo, that it was candid. People would assume I look like that all time time. But I don’t. We constantly see pictures like this and compare our actual candid photos to these “fake” candid photos. Expecting that we have to look flawless without trying and getting upset with ourselves when we don’t. Instagram isn’t reality. I used to look at photos of me similar to the right and think all these insecure thoughts of my body looking too wide, having no curves. But now I realise there is nothing wrong with the right photo. I don’t need to look as small as possible and have abs 24/7 to feel like I am worthy or to love my body. I don’t have an hourglass figure and I don’t need to have one. I am beautiful the way I am, no matter what angle, flexing or not. And so are you, start believing it. We are all unique and need to start embracing that. Life would be so boring if we all looked the same. You don’t need to change your body. Change the way you see yourself. 🌴☀️ —————————————— . . . #candidphoto #instagramvsreality #mybody #flatstomach #loveyourbody #selfesteem #loa #thankyourbody #youareworthit #youareunique
