It might seem like Danica Patrick only uses social media to remind everyone how fit she is. One of the many reasons shes uses it, though, is to share important messages with her fans.
The Stewart-Haas Racing driver shared side-by-side photos of her body in an Instagram post Monday. The photos look noticeably different, although presumably taken at roughly the same time.
And that’s the point.
Patrick accompanied the pictures with a message reminding people to stay positive about their bodies, and to not lose confidence because of other peoples’ pictures, which might be manipulated and misleading. Check out her photos and message in the post below:

I kinda love when people do real vs produced shots. The difference between the two is lighting, pose, and clothes adjustments. We all want to look our best at all times, no shame in that. But don't let someone else's body put yours down. Use it for motivation. 💜Keep digging friends to be the best you! You own that! We all know when we are treating our bodies with the respect it deserves. It's the one and only thing we own for life. 🙌🏼🍎
There’s no doubt that Patrick’s message is important.
Still, she’s one of the most fit drivers in NASCAR, and likely the only one capable of doing handstands on a car.
