It can be hard to see that most of the posts on these social media sites are so curated, edited and filtered! We start to compare ourselves, our lives, our bodies, our eyebrows, our wrinkles, our lifestyles, let's be honest our everything with the photos we see.

I posted it as I have heard so many times from people that they cannot get rid of their mummy tummy or they are in their 30's so can't change their body now, I had a c-section, I was in my late 30's and had changed and wanted to let others know that a lot of it for me was getting rid of negativity, being happier in myself.
