The other reason I ask this is because if you strive to look exactly like the model in the pictures. You will always be let down. You see they had to train for years to look like that, or they could have amazing genetics. They probably haven't eaten carbs in 12 months. They also took around 100 of the same photo just to get the same article. So when you are trying to replicate this, you will no doubt fail.
The issue with this, is simple, if you feel you will never achieve something, you will often give up.
Adjust your expectations, and keep track of the progress you make.
Your results will come, as a result of the person you become.
Yes, have role models, but don't put all your hopes on this. Work for progress, not perfection.
Whenever I start working with someone on some of my 1-1 programmes, one of the first 'Rules' I set out is to remove themselves from any social media fitness groups, and hide away any fitness magazines that are around the house. One of the reasons for this is because I want my clients to be focused and clear, rather than distracted and confused by the thousands of different ideas out there. (I will talk more about that another day).
