As you go through the Instagram discover page, you are bound to come across a progress or a before/after photo: a side by side image of someone who has lost a lot of weight, gained muscle mass, improved their flexibility, or increased their strength. There is something about these progress photos that pull people in.For many accounts, they tend to be the highest performing posts on their pages. As you scroll through the hundreds of comments under the photo, you read the conversation going in one of two directions: people feel incredibly inspired and uplifted, or they feel overwhelmed and incompetent.
So when you come across these photos, how do you stay in the positivity and light?
How do you look at this person, that accomplished something that you want to do, without feeling envious?
