"A pesar de que voy caminando rápido a todas partes, de que hago sentadillas, corro y hago Pure Barre, sigo teniendo celulitis", contó Charli Howard.

Charli Howard, es una modelo británica que se ha destacado por ir contra de los estándares de belleza poco realistas que se ven en el mundo de la moda.

Por lo mismo, decidió publicar una foto en su cuenta de Instagram en la que muestra parte de su trasero y piernas para demostrar que la celulitis es natural, y que no debería de acomplejar a las mujeres.

“Dicen que hay que hacer todos los días algo que te dé miedo, así que lo que voy a hacer hoy es volver a publicar esta foto. A pesar de que voy caminando rápido a todas partes, de que hago sentadillas, corro y hago Pure Barre, sigo teniendo celulitis”, comentó al inicio de su publicación. 

“Fui a un internado para chicas y siempre tuve envidia de las chicas de mi clase que no tenían celulitis y que tenían lo que a mí me parecía un cuerpo perfecto. Cuando hojeaba las revistas, las modelos y las famosas que aparecían en ellas tampoco tenían celulitis; y, si la tenían, en los tabloides eran objeto de mofas por ello o eran destronadas por periodistas que posiblemente también tuvieran celulitis”.

They say do something each day that scares you, so re-posting this is mine for the day. Despite the fact I speed walk everywhere, squat, run and occasionally do @pure_barre, I’m still left with cellulite. I went to an all-girls’ boarding school and really used to envy the girls in my class who seemingly had none, and whose bodies looked, to me, nothing less than perfect. Whenever I opened magazines, the models and celebrities I saw didn’t have cellulite either – and if they did, they were shamed in the tabloids because of it, or knocked off their perch by nasty journalists who probably have it themselves. (Note: fuck you.) As a result, I felt like my cellulite was shameful, or an oddity. It wasn’t until I got older and saw other women’s bodies that I realised HOW BLOODY NATURAL IT IS. ✔️ It’s nothing to be ashamed of. Your boyfriend isn’t gonna care if you have it, and if he does, dump him for his mate. 💁🏻 Just kidding (or am I?). Don’t get me wrong – my cellulite isn’t my favourite part of my body, nor is it something I shout from the rooftops about. But I know it doesn’t make me any less ugly, or is something I need to feel embarrassed about. ✖️ So don’t let it make you feel that way, either! In the words of my old pal Kendrick Lamar, “Show me something natural like ass with some stretch marks” 🍑🍑🍑💪🏼💪🏾💪🏿💪🏻💪🏽 #iamallwoman @allwomanproject @heatherhazzan

Si bien la modelo es cofundadora del proyecto All Woman Project, cuya iniciativa principal es “que todas las mujeres se sientan representadas” -sobre todo en los medios de comunicación- no siempre tuvo esta fortaleza de espíritu. Al principio se avergonzaba de su cuerpo, tal y como cuenta en la publicación.

“Para mí, la celulitis era una vergüenza, algo poco común. Hasta que no fui más mayor y vi otros cuerpos femeninos no me di cuenta de lo natural que es. No es algo de lo que avergonzarse. A tu novio le va a dar igual que tengas celulitis y si le supone un problema, déjale por un amigo suyo. Es broma (¿o no?). No me malinterpreten: la celulitis no es lo que más me gusta de mi cuerpo, tampoco es algo sobre lo que gritaría orgullosa a los cuatro vientos. Pero sé que no es algo por lo que tenga que avergonzarme. En palabras de mi viejo amigo Kendrick Lamar: ‘Enséñame algo natural, como un culo con estrías”, afirmó.

I always get scared about posting these but I know a lot of you relate to the issues I’ve faced so here we go! 💥 On the left, it was supposed to be my first ‘sexy’ shoot to help promote the ‘curvier’ body type I allegedly had (yes, really). I look at my emaciated arms and just feel sad. I didn’t look sexy and certainly didn’t feel sexy, either. Yet because of my body type (🍐), I was being pushed down that route. 😤 All I saw in the mirror was fat, fat, fat. I hadn’t eaten since lunchtime the day before in preparation for the shoot; I’d downed litres of water to rid any ‘water retention’ I had (I mean seriously, wtf) and by the time I arrived to do the shoot, I was shaking from lack of energy. 👎🏼 I kept begging the photographer on the day to photoshop me thinner because I was so worried what my then-agents would think about it. I remember him looking at me like I was mad, but I couldn’t understand why. 😒 So anyway, we do the shoot, the photos are sent back to my agency, and I’m then asked to come in and get measured. I asked why. Apparently, I looked “very bloated” in the left photo, and they needed me to come in and check I “didn’t actually look that bad in real life”. I have the email somewhere—maybe I’ll post it someday. I wouldn’t like to think what those bookers thought of my arms now on the right, but frankly, I also don’t give a fuck. 👍🏼 When you surround yourself with agents who care about your well-being, their opinions don’t matter ❤️ I starved myself for over ten years, giving me irregular periods (if any), bad skin, a bad back, bleeding gums, hair loss etc, and I’m never going back to that place to meet somebody else’s ideas of perfection. ✖️ And neither should you! If you want to be a model, be yourself. TRUST ME, you’ll do better when you own your natural shape and letting that confidence shine through! 🌟 Regardless, simply as a WOMAN, just live your life and don’t succumb to pressures to look a certain way like I did. I’ve never been healthier, but most importantly, I’ve never been happier. 💪🏼 And when you stop trying to conform, you’ll feel the same way. ❤️ #curves #bodypositive #iamallwoman @allwomanproject
