I’m going to let you in on a little insider secret that many of your favorites don’t want you to know: a lot of people photoshop their pics on Instagram. Yep, I know it seems hard to believe but its true. And I don’t just mean Kardashians and Hadids, I mean A LOT of people. People alter their hips to make themselves look thinner, they alter their butts and/or boobs to make them look bigger, and there’s even apps that clean up their faces. I had a girlfriend once who would get furious if I’d post a pic of the two of us before she could use her magical app to touch up her face and make it look like she wanted. As a guy who posts stuff like this, I never really got the point.

Sometimes, you can spot an oddly curved wall or a deformed counter-top that gives it away. However, that ISN’T the case in this pic of McKayla Maroney. That’s just crappy wallpaper, so don’t get your hopes up.

McKayla wants you to know that she doesn’t photoshop her pics like a lot of other girls. She’s proud of who she is and what she looks like. I’d be pretty proud of myself too if I looked like that. In the caption, she urges everyone to be proud of themselves and love their bodies. I couldn’t agree more, McKayla.

throw back to my light hair equals: i just ran out of current selfies to post 💜💜💜💜
