Editing my body to make me look skinny in instagram photos for a week is so different for me. I'm all about body positivity and love my curvy body, but this week I did a little social experiment with facetune. I edited and facetuned my insta pictures to show the problem with photoshop and how what you see on instagram can so easily be fake.
❤ OPEN ME!
Hey curvy babes! Today's video is a little different. I wanted to show the power of photo editing, and how the "body goals" we all seem to fawn over on instagram aren't even real half the time. So, I edited my instagram photos for a week. And I mean REALLY edited. I changed so much of the little flaws that make me, me. It almost looked like a completely different person.
Weight gain and weight loss are a part of life, but just because your body might not be what you think is "perfect" it doesn't mean changing or editing to look like you are losing weight is the answer. Let's embrace body positivity and show our real bodies on instagram, not a fake contorted version. Skinny, fat, curvy- whatever in between! You don't need editing to look beautiful, I promise.

This was so interesting for me to make. What did you guys think? And if you follow me on Instagram, did you notice?
Also, I just wanna add: if you follow someone, wether they be a friend or a celebrity and you think they’re photoshopping their body- don’t call them out. If they feel the need to do that, they probably have some deep rooted confidence issues and calling them out publicly isn’t going to solve that. I think the best thing we can do is be the representation we want to see, show our truer selves and bodies on instagram so that person feels less alone and sees that it’s okay not to be perfect.
You are literally mocking your own captions. If you know your captions are curated fluff just for the likes how are you comfortable with that? Seems ridiculous and disingenuous and definitely not what IG needs more of.
"Everything is fake!"
So is makeup and dying your hair, but that seems to not be a problem for you. It annoys me that people hate on other people for feeling the need to change their appearance on social medial. Clearly it's coming from a severe insecurity so why not help people with that, rather than call people fake and making it soooo negative sounding.
I have a beautiful 20 year old daughter who thinks she’s ugly if she has a spot on her face or is a bit bloated one day. I sent her a link to the before and after pictures of twenty celebrities who had been photo shopped, each one looked way worse than her before. It even made me feel good and I’m in my 50’s ! I love that you are addressing this issue and I love your happy practical philosophy on fashion.
But why would you care that much about how skinny or not one is. Most people wouldn't comment on an obviously photoshopped picture that it is fake since most people already know that. I don't think that you have to be insecure to edit your pictures. It's simply a generalization. Why do we have to give all this attention to how one looks online. Obviously you're not going to post a picture where you don't look good. I don't agree with a lot of your points.
tbh whooooo gives a fuck if people edit their photos,,, like i can see how it would alter people’s perception of what people should look like or what people DO look like but like, if i want to edit out a pimple or a little patch of cellulite or make my highlight a bit brighter WHO cares and whose business is that? i’m happy with the way i look in person but everybody chooses to show the best side of themselves online and that is their own choice
I'm not trying to hate but you're emphasizing this way too much! if someone wants to facetune their photos, they're allowed to. it's their picture. it's fine if you don't like editing your photos but don't try to control others. also, you have to be insanely stupid if you think ig photos are real. everyone knows filters and photoshop apps exist. you're making a mountain out of nothing. chill out.
this is a cute video but her saying that stuff on social media is “not real” kinda bothered me because i personally work really hard to keep my body the way that it is and i’d be super annoyed if someone accused me of photoshop just because i’m more on the average/thin side
You are soo nervous in this video! ^^' I feel bad for you even though there is no reason for you to feel bad.
I guess you are one of the few youtubers of whom I can really feel like they are a real living person, not just a figure on my screen.
Thank you so much for making this! I'm a 17yo girl who doesn't have the best skin (big pores, a few fine lines, blemishes, redness etc) and I've been really insecure about it since I first noticed it a few years ago. This helped me realize that there's no point in comparing myself to others and that I'm not ugly just because I'm not perfect :)
I don’t think their is anything wrong with editing their pictures and it has nothing to do with insecurity. It’s more like perusing perfections. It’s funny how some people who shouldn’t be that confident about their appearance are making fun of those who’s trying to improve themselves from a 9 to a 10.
This video almost made me cry. It's just so inspiring and I love your body positivity!!! I've been struggling recently because I'm now the heaviest I've ever been. But I'm trying to watch more of these body positivity videos and trying to accept my body. ❤
I know you already love Target, but speaking of edited and fake photos, yesterday my sister in law and I were shopping at Target and noticed how the photos of models look so very real. They may be edited some, but there were girls of all sizes, including some stretch marks on a bikini model 👏. I’ve never seen that before! Yay to Target for keeping it real.
I’m new to your channel and want to compliment you on this test for Instagram. Hopefully it was as eye opening to many others as it was for me. Good job, good luck, and may your channel grow exponentially.
I am sorry but I am very frustrated with your attitude. I know body positivity but, like to much is to much. Like yes love yourself but really if you want to change yourself do that!! Change what you hate make yourself happy change yourself is that makes you happy!! I hate your attitude! It kinda seems like you are jealous omg like stop people can do what they want!
This video really helped me realise that I don't need to fit a typical size to be beautiful and to stop editing my body and that it's is great the way that it is and so for that thank you sierra this really helped and opened my eyes to another perspective and the way I view myself and my body
I made myself delete Snapchat because I became too dependent on the filters to make me look a certain way. And when I would take the filter off I didn’t like what I was seeing anymore, but I never used to be that way before. I really think all the editing and filters are toxic and people don’t even realize it.
If someone wants to feel good about themselves on social media by FaceTuning their pics, let them. Who cares, it’s instagram. If I have a huge honking zit on my chin in a picture, I’m probably gonna patch it out. If I’m wearing a swimsuit and I’m insecure about how big my arm looks, I’m probably gonna refine it, because I don’t want my insecurities (especially temporary ones) to keep me from sharing my memories and being a happy person.
You wouldn’t shame someone for their body as is, don’t shame them for editing a pic so they feel good about posting it.
Hi Sierra I found you channel through the channel Coolirpa. I used to be a size 38 (European size) and went to a size 44 in one year (because of medical issues). I am still reevaluating myself but I am accepting the fact that I am never going to have a 38 again. You have a similar posture to mine so your videos help a lot in styling myself. Still struggling sometimes but you recently helped me see that big girls can look good. So thxs for making videos and being you!
I can’t ever make my pictures look better, no matter how many apps I try, you never really see them noticeable being better haha. Real sad actually because sometimes things look just weird in pictures 😂
For example, we were in San Francisco and it was gloomy. I would have loved to edit the picture to make it look like it wasn’t because I live in Germany and wanted a nice picture at the Golden Gate Bridge with my bf. My attempt at it made it so obviously that it was edited but I posted it anyway because it was about the memory, but that’s really what I would like to be able to do, not to make a great picture look even more perfect
F or 25 years we have provided deluxe wilderness outpost fishing trips from our Armstrong location into beautiful Wabakimi Provincial Park and surrounding lakes.
Yes, we take you where the fishing is extraordinary , but there is more than fishing. Yearly family gatherings sharing a wilderness experience in comfort. Father - son (or daughter) bonding trips or Husband and wife celebrating a second honeymoon with the added spectacular outpost fishing or `the buddy trips where the tall tales get taller.
Its a big time stress reliever! . how do you think about anything else when you are fighting a fish?
Greg and I had a great week. we caught over 1000 walleye. There were well over 200 in the slot size (>18"). This is the most large walleye that have ever been caught on a trip to whiteclay for me. The slot size protection is working. It seems that each trip has more large fish being caught. Our largest northern was 43". It was caught on a jig while walleye fishing.
Greg and I sent see what you missed letters to about a dozen folks. Hope that translates into a large group for next June. . Fran and I are looking forward to the August fishing trip .

Received your card. Congratulations on 25 Years! We speak often about the great times we had at Ogoki! A Tribute to you both!
Best Regards, Rich Craddock.
What a nice surprise to find your post card in my mail yesterday. Twenty-five years is a long time to do anything; much less a business like yours with all the uncertainties of weather, exchange-rates, two-country economies, etc. There is a reason why your business has survived and (hopefully) thrived. you do the wilderness fishing experience better than anyone in the outdoor sport vacation business.
Dear Judy and Paul,
Congratulations on 25 years. I have many fond memories of my time with Jack at Ogoki. Hope all is well with you.
. . . Nicole will take you on a guided tour!
This website will take you every step of the way for a worry free fishing vacation!
Let us introduce ourselves; Judy & Paul Boucher and family. Weve been doing this for 25 years and have learned a thing or two on how to take the worry out of the wilderness experience. Our staff will help you with anything you may not understand or solve any mechanical glitch right away. In short: we treat you like family!
Just a note to let you know our recent fishing junket to your Mojikit South Outpost.
Ive been coming to Armstrong area since 1972 and have probably flown in with 6-7 different outfitters over the years to numerous outposts. Your Mojikit South camp is clearly the nicest camp I have been to. The cabin is beautiful and roomy. Great kitchen and dining area. Beautiful screened in deck and outside porch overlooking the channel. Large chest freezer and a frig that actually keeps things cold. Screened in fishing cleaning house with running water. Bedrooms that are roomy. Vaulted ceiling the the cabin is a plus. The cabin is centrally located to both the lake and the Ogoki Reservoir.
The boats are the best that Ive ever experienced at an outpost. The inside bottoms consist of flat carpeted panels. easy to get in and out of. 1st time Ive fished an outpost with "dry" feet. The boats had comfortable swivel seats and 15 & 20 hp 4-stroke engines that worked great.
We will definitely be back. Everything about Ogoki Frontier was quality. My two grandchildren had the time of their lives, as did the other 2 members of our party. Thanks for the memories.
