Vivimos en un mundo en el que los estereotipos de belleza están muy marcados y no es fácil cumplir con ellos. Tal vez todos en algún momento nos hemos sentido a disgusto con nuestro cuerpo y hemos intentado de todo para bajar de peso, tener una piel más suave, y un largo etcétera.
Uno de los problemas más recurrentes en las mujeres es la celulitis, que es causada en varios casos, por problemas hormonales o de circulación, por eso los productos “mágicos” que nos prometen acabar con ella, lo único que nos provocan son decepciones.
Kenzie Brenna es una joven actriz, escritora y activista de 26 años de edad, que por mucho tiempo ha intentado eliminar la celulitis de su cuerpo con todo tipo de tratamientos: cremas, remedios caseros y sales de baño, pero nada daba los resultados que ella esperaba.
GOOD MORNINGGGG ✨☀️ So, today is #cellulitesaturday Let's talk stats ok? These are pretty wild to me. 42% of girls in grade 1-3 want to be thinner 78 fucking % of 17 year old girls are unhappy with their bodies "Teenage girls are more afraid of gaining weight then getting cancer, losing their parents or nuclear war." In 2013 the American Medical Association created a policy that really didn't go anywhere, stating that the effects of digitally altering images to impressionable youth were so harmful they cause HEALTH PROBLEMS. I'm not fucking making this shit up people. And did it do anything? Nope. That's why offering up my #realbody, unedited, unfiltered for you to look at, for trolls to rip apart, is important because we have LITERALLY FORGOTTEN WHAT REAL BODIES LOOK LIKE. To quote WIKIPEDIA "cellulite occurs in 80-90% of women, the prevailing medical condition is that it's 'merely the normal condition of many women.'" NORMAL. It's fucking NORMAL. With stats above it drives me so hard so that way my future daughters and sons grow up with more real images of bodies around them than I did. To pray their mental and physical health isn't as affected as mine was. #fuckyeahhhhh #thisbody #celluliteisokay #bodyconfidence #nobodyshame #recovery #bodyimage #bodyimageissues #cellulite
Esta chica sufrió de dismorfia corporal, una condición que hacía que sobredimensionara su preocupación en torno a su apariencia física. Sí, Kenzie, como muchas (o todas) las mujeres, tiene celulitis, pero lejos de preocuparse más por esto, ahora promueve en las redes sociales el amor al cuerpo e invita a las mujeres a no avergonzarse, sentirse cómodas y mostrarse tal como son.
Brenna ha inspirado a cientos de usuarias de Instagram que han decidido compartir sus imágenes con el hashtag #CelluliteSaturday. Aquí en De10.mx te mostramos las fotos de las chicas que se unieron a este movimiento conocido como “body positive” (cuerpo positivo).
Is it weird that I've been looking forward to posting a pic of my cellulite all day?? @omgkenzieee started an amazing movement with #cellulitesaturday, and I am SO on board. So here's me: same butt, same legs, different poses, different lighting. I'm fit, I'm healthy, I feel good, and yup, I have cellulite! Because cellulite. Is. Normal. It is as normal and harmless as freckles, as bumps on noses, and the coloured flecks in people's eyes. The beauty (and "health" and fitness and diet) industry stands to make A LOT of money on your believing this is something you need to fix, but you deserve to love this part of yourself as much as any other. So go love yo'self and your bod JUST AS YOU ARE . . . . . . #selflove#bopowarrior#bodyposi#bodypositivity#embracethesquish#everyBODYisbeautiful#thisiswhatfitlookslike#bodylove#realrecovery#beyourself#recovery#shareyourspark#daretobedifferent#nonairbrushedme#girlsthatlift#thickthighs#bodyimage#effyourbeautystandards#allwomenproject#vegan#vegansofig#fitfam
Okay so let me just say I feel very vulnerable right now. ANY NEGATIVE COMEMNTS KEEP THEM TO YO SELF. thank youuuu. I work out 5X a week and eat based off my macros. I drink tons of water and have cheat meals. I am healthy and on my way to healthy lifestyle change. One of my really close social media babes ( @omgkenzieee ) created a campaign called #CelluliteSaturday and I am so proud of her. Embrace your insecurities and love who you are. I am proud to say I stand behind this message and hope that you too can share your beautiful bodies. I have always been the fat friend, the chubby one, the one who was overlooked through my school years for the reason of being bigger. Bigger than the "normal" girls. Be your own normal. Watching @omgkenzieee 'a newest YouTube vid will help you realize that you don't have to have perfect smooth white skin to be beautiful. Okay I'm going to go crawl in a hole for awhile and ask myself why I did this--NOT HEALTHY. I realize that and I need to overcome my mental strength along with my fitness journey. And yes I know it's Friday ❤️
It's #CelluliteSaturday! A reminder that a) EVERYONE HAS CELLULITE b) it is NOTHING to be ashamed of and c) cellulite is not an indicator of health. Did you know that cellulite had actually never been mentioned until the 1960s by Vogue? Before then women had been rocking cellulite for YEARS and all of a sudden it became something to fix, something to be ashamed about. But it damn well isn't. It's yet another reminder of how so many companies benefit off our insecurities. Don't let them.

So this is a hard picture for me to post, but watching @omgkenzieee with #cellulitesaturday be so bold and happy and full of self love, I know I want to share this. The picture on the right is about 4 years ago, I was about 20lbs heavier and miserable, it was shortly before I got sober and i hated myself. I had no self love, no confidence without the drugs and alcohol. I had just recently come out of an extremely emotional & mentally abusive relationship. One of the specific and most hurtful things that has stayed with me from that person is how much cellulite I carry in my mid section. I remember repeatedly being called fat, disgusting, how he didn't want to look at me or let me have my shirt off. I believed for the longest time that I was disgusting. I was also in the midst of lots of medical issues, I had multiple surgeries that were specifically in my mid section. All together I felt alone, worthless, lost, depressed, suicidal and the list goes on.Fast forward to today, I am almost 3 years sober! I have a beautiful life, I love the person I am and work hard for myself every single day. I have busted my but in the gym for the last 2 years and guess what, I STILL HAVE CELLULITE. I'm not going to lie and say I am okay with it and happy and always confident, I'm not, I still struggle every day with my self image and the damage it has caused. I've learned to focus on the more important things, I am happy, I love myself, I choose me, I work my ass off for myself, I do this because I love and care for myself, people can think and say what they want, but they're words will no longer control me. Love yourself ladies, choose yourself and keep kicking ass. The @katyhearnfit ladies are so beyond supportive, it's a family that will lift you up, never tear you down. ❤️. #khfit #khfc16 #khfitness #khfallchallenge16 #khfitladies #khfitgirls #workout #gym #motivation #dedication #fitspo #fitspiration #transformation #cellulitesaturday #loveyourself #selflove #bodybuilding #girlswithtattoos #girlswithink #mytransformation #iifym #iifymgirls #girlswithmuscle
Hey babes!! Happy #cellulitesaturday !! I don't want to underestimate the importance of this work. To normalize all bodies as good bodies. I remember noticing my cellulite at a very young age and feeling like there was something so wrong with me. I would seek to find it on others and any time I saw it I felt a little bit more normal, a little bit more accepted, a little bit more lovable. My message today is short and sweet. I've spent years unlearning the hate towards this facet of my body, and part of that process was learning that I wasn't the only one with dimples on my thighs. I just hope that by helping pioneer this movement along side my gal @omgkenzieee and so many others willing to get totally uncomfortable to do what's hard...that we can empower women and girls in a world that wants to tell them how to fix everything that's "wrong" by showing them what it looks like to embrace everything that is so right. So much love and as always, just do you babes! Xoxo Allie
Happy #cellulitesaturday don't let a few trapped fat cells stop you from doing you today.

No filters, no edits, no sucking in, no nothing. Just smack dab in the middle of some good ol' "flaw" showing sunlight. Lighting can fully change how someone looks; and odds are, most of the women you know have had their pictures taken in lighting that hides their "flaws" the most, out of either insecurity or shame. But reality is, the vast majority of women have cellulite, scars or stretch marks on their bodies. It's in our biology, and it's simply how our bodies are meant to grow, slim down and store fat. Diet industries and public figures have caused such a stir about how our bodies "should" look like, that we've forgotten how to embrace ourselves as we naturally are. We've got our minds so rapped up into looking like one particular body, that we've lost conscious of how impossible it is for two bodies to be exactly alike. Our own damn bodies don't even look the same throughout the lengths of a day, yet we're still falling for a social ideal which simply cannot be met? To love yourself as you are, and move towards a better you, you have learn more about yourself and your body first. It takes time, and it takes strength, and you will have your downfalls, but I promise you, there is no greater feeling than embracing yourself for who you truly are #cellulitesaturday #HoneyLoves
