Did You know She Photo Shops her pictures? One of my favorite gal pals smirks while reaching for her smart phone. I must admit when having girl talk you never really know how you get on a subject or person for that matter. In hours of talking fashion, love, business, etc.nothing is off limits when chatting with girlfriends.

I waited as she scanned threw her phone for evidence of a bad photo shopped picture. In minutes there it was a extreme blurred wavy wall on her silhouette to make her waist drastically  smaller. I wanted it not to be true  I silently rooted for her just because so many girls look up to her on social media. What can you do when the truth is staring you in the face and photo after photo it become more apparent that she was altering her figure often and poorly.

We no longer have to purchase programs for hundreds of dollars to make drastic changes to our photos. There are apps that are virtually free and easy to use that can create the same effect. I just wonder why some plus size woman are yearning to better proportioned  and not working with what they have. 
We are not all shaped the same and a hourglass figure will not be every ones shape. I wonder how many of us are hiding behind filters and face shots to avoid our bodies. The purpose of  body acceptance is accepting all parts of our bodies not just some. 

I see plus size women up and down my timeline hiding behind face shots, booty shots and the infamous huge purse to hide their stomach. I'm not saying lets all throw away our spanx but let us at least acknowledge we have a tummy or thighs that touch. 

So how do you feel about extremely altered pictures are they deceiving or it's okay to edit out what you don't like on your body?
