One Imgur user set out to reveal the truth about her body — and managed to inspire thousands along the way!
The woman, who goes by the name Somewhereunderthewater on Imgur, posted four images of herself to the blogging website, two of which perfectly highlighted her athletic figure while the other two weren't quite as flattering.

She writes that her aim is to prove that even those deemed "physically fit" don't always look perfect. "We aren't barbies. We are made of flesh and blood. These are all the same body — my body," she wrote.
"I have worked hard for this body and I am proud of this body," she added. "It's good to see a little reality so we can keep our expectations real."
Since posting the series of photos a week ago, Somewhereunderthewater said she's ecstatic over the response. "Wow. I am so very grateful that my message was received by so many in the way it was intended," she wrote.
"We all struggle with body image, we are all in this together! The important thing is that we love our bodies...We won't always like everything that they do, or the path they have gone down or everything that happens to them but we do have to love them."
