7 modeller har droppet at leve op til kropsidealer – og nu har de det bedre end nogensinde

Vi hylder de stærke kvinder, som ærligt viser, hvordan deres kroppe har forandret sig

2. juni 2017 af Maria Broe Trustrup Hansen

Det kan være svært, men det er virkelig vigtigt, at vi bliver bedre til at elske vores kroppe (ligesom Petra også prøver at gøre). Vi ser alle sammen forskellige ud, og selvom du måske nogle gange har lyst til at bytte krop med din bedste veninde eller modellen i modemagasinet, skal du huske, at du er perfekt, præcis som du er!

En række modeller har taget det budskab til sig, og de har sagt farvel til en livsstil, som forbød dem at spise, hvad de ville, og hvor de hele tiden helst skulle tabe et par kilo. 

Modellerne har delt en række før- og nu-billeder på Instagram, hvor man tydeligt kan se, at deres kroppe har forandret sig. Modellernes budskab er, at alle kroppe er smukke, og at det har gjort dem lykkeligere at droppe alle kropsidealerne.

Maeve Maddan er fra Irland, og den unge kvinde arbejder både som model, skuespiller, danser og personlig træner. På sin blog deler hun blandt andet sine tanker om en sund og aktiv krop. 

I have never felt more healthy Happy and confident in myself than i do right now.. As u can see I have come a long way and I am so proud but TODAY on social media I was BODY SHAMED for gaining weight.. I look at these 2 pictures & I can literally see how miserable I was. As a model I felt so much pressure to be skinny and I had no idea just how much damage I was doing to myself. I was underweight, my HAIR was so broken and thin, i had terrible acne, I couldn’t sleep, my anxiety was shocking as for my diet, Eating healthy fats and protein every day was a huge no no, I counted every calorie, and killed myself in the gym doing hours of cardio. I wouldn’t dare have lifted a weight. I had 0 motivation, 0 passion for my job, I couldn’t have been more unhappy. Now, I literally love the life i live. I have gained 10kg or more I don't even weigh myself.. I feel stronger healthier & happier in everything I do both physically and mentally . My lifestyle consists of nutritious real food, packed with protein & fats, fuelling my workouts .My hair literally doesn’t stop growing & my acne has cleared up. I wish I could go back in time & tell myself to wise up and eat a god damn burger. I love my new job and sharing it with you all. So be the very best version of yourself.. Today when a few people actually fat shamed me I lol , because i literally wouldn’t take all the money in the world to going back to being that skinny unhappy girl. People will always try and put u down, don’t worry about them, for anyone who isn’t happy for you probably isn't happy themselves. Don't let anyone attack ur confidence or self-esteem, those people can see just how wonderful you are & they probably just wish they wr you. So to all the haters, and anyone hating on any of my supportive crew, if you can’t be kind then just be quiet ur not welcome here. Kind people are my kinda people, anyone who tries to bring u down is already below you. 💕

4. Liza Golden-Bhojwani

Amerikanske Liza Golden-Bhojwani elsker i dag sine kurver, men tidligere havde hun et meget anstrengt forhold til sin krop. Hun spiste stort set ingenting, og hele hendes verden handlede om at være tynd nok. Den 27-årige model har i dag overvundet trangen til at kontrollere sin krop, og i dag kæmper hun for, at kvinder verden over skal elske dem selv. 

5. Emily Bador

Engelske Emily Bador har et stort fokus på kropspositivitet, mental sundhed og feminisme. 

i'm gonna be honest, the industry needs to change. man oh man i'm tired of it. on the left is july 2015, my lowest weight. i can't tell you how much i weighed but i can tell you i was size 4/6 and my waist only measured 23 inches. i can also tell you i thought i was fat. i've always had a few body image issues but since becoming a model, they've skyrocketed. at work, i've always felt like i didn't belong, i've always been short, and mixed race. i'd been modelling for just over a year, and going to castings made me feel super insecure. every time i didn't get a call back from my casting i'd start to wonder why. was i too fat? during 2015, i became obsessive with my measurements and clothes sizes. i exercised daily and i would never even look at any carbs let alone eat them. it started making me physically sick, dizzy, exhausted, etc. i ended up getting to a point where i'd have daily panic attacks about getting dressed, and couldn't even leave my bed in fear of catching my reflection in the mirror. at this time, i also started getting the most work i've ever had and travelling all over world. which, instilled in me "the thinner i am, the more work i'm gonna get". my hatred for myself became so overwhelming i knew something had to change, i took some time out and finally got working on loving myself. and today, for the first time in a long time, i felt good about myself this morning. i struggle with getting dressed sometimes, catching my reflection can occasionally hurt still and i have panic attacks now and again but i am getting there. sometimes i forget that self love is a journey. we have to call on this system to change. we need diversity. all bodies, differently abled, shaped, coloured, sized, gendered and aged. diversity is so important. representation is so important. i'm sick and tired of seeing amazing, talented, beautiful women hate themselves because they don't look like that VS model or whatever. too many young women suffer from mental health issues which stem from the pressure of today's media. ✨you are more than your appearance, you are strong and resilient and you are beautiful no matter what and i really hope you remember that✨

6. Hunter McGrady

Det er ikke første gang, at vi er stødt på Hunter McGrady her på Woman. Den seje model fik tidligere på året taget smukke og ikke mindst meget sexede billeder i badetøj, som var dedikeret til alle kvinder, som har følt sig usikre på grund af deller, strækmærker, appelsinhud eller akne.

7. Iskra Lawrence

Iskra Lawrance omfavner også sine smukke kurver, og hendes yndlingshashtag er #everyBODYisbeautiful

Made a vid about my own Transformation Tuesday 👆link in my bio👆 (the left is a pic from a couple months ago and the right is from 6/7 years ago) . I wanted to share this pic because my transformation was so much more than weight & muscle gain. I went through a mental transformation too. ... People may assume that the pic on the right where I'm 3 dress sizes smaller that I was healthier. Because we are conditioned to believe it's a compliment when someone has lost weight or it's everyone's desire to "lose a few lbs". However I was obsessed to an unhealthy extreme and as you can see the image is HIGHLY photoshopped and all those years ago that's what I wanted. I thought the skinner I was the more "perfected" I was I'd be happier and a more successful model. Letting go of that pursuit of perfection was the best thing I ever did. And instead of wanting to change my body I started working on being the best version of myself from the inside out and that made me happier and more confident. .. Everyone's transformations look different and that's such a beautiful thing. Just always do it for YOU, and know YOU are good enough and worthy of feeling happy, healthy and confident. Look after yourself, practise self-care and let the real you shine. .. Hope you enjoy watching my video, I'd love you to share your transformations in the comments with me. Or let me know more videos you'd like me to make. Because my channel is for you, ILY all 😘 .. #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful
