Anett - Inspiration and role model to every girl
Self confidence is not something what we can just pick up when we need it unfortunately, it takes lots of work, lots of failing and lots of progress. If you are one, who feels unhappy being in your skin, then is time for a change. Changes are hard. Very hard, but in the end it will worth it. Start small, put goals in front of yourself and when you reach it, celebrate yourself with putting a bigger one in your way.
It can be anything, what you wanted. Cutting your hair, going to gym, or have tattoos from head to toes. The key for is not giving up! Keep going, even if it hurts, or mentally destroys us. Have to learn to be brave and see the bigger picture. Never be shy to ask for help, we are all learning till the last day of our life, asking for help is a wise decision not a weak one.
About herself - intro
My problem with self confidence started long back when I was a teenager. I suffered with panic attacks and anorexia. Always felt like I'm just not enough. It is a terrible mental illness what doesn't get enough attention and I don't think ever anyone can fully recover. I think this type of mental illnesses has to be spoken about a lot more and make people more aware that is isn’t just something what goes away by itself.
My journey with fitness started about 4- 5 years ago. I just wanted an escape of every day's stress and have some healthy habits. I needed a safe place for my mind and body to get stronger in all possible ways. Gym helped me to perfect myself, get better and stronger.
Gym was a rest place for my mind at first then it became much more. I started to see how my body changes, then I caught myself doing researches, planning my work outs, monitoring my food intake, eating more for energy and built a healthy relationship with food. Became more social by talking with people who have some passion about fitness, share experience and speak about results. My life got meaning and I was enjoying it. I loved showing of my progress, which obviously meant my body as well. I wasn't weak anymore. I was much stronger mentally and physically too.
About first photo session
After years of going gym most of the days, I felt like i stuck in a routine. Going to work, come home, change to gym clothe, change to PJ at night. I couldn't remember when was the last time my hair wasn't in a pony tail. My friend offered me to do some photos to see my own progression and I was blew away by the outcome. Seeing the pictures I felt sexy, felt like a different person. A confident sexy version of myself what was waiting to break out and shout " I'm here too" !
Looking at the photos helps me too see myself in whole. How a position can show my good side. It makes me understand, I can be one of that beautiful lady on social media. Most importantly, it makes me realise that the best thing what I can wear on photos is my confidence.
I can't speak with long experience about modelling, I only started recently. A good friend of mine: Jason Skarratt who is a professional photographer, kept nagging me in the past saying I have a beautiful face what needs to be shown off, then left it for me to think about. Not so long time ago we got in touch again and I finally said yes. It was one of my best decisions. First I was very shy and felt lost and underdressed but Jason kept saying how good I'm doing and helped me with poses. He made me laugh so I got distracted about being scared and started to enjoying myself. After seeing the pictures of the first session, I knew it won't stop there.
I just wanted to feel like a women, a sexy confident women. No trainers, big t-shirts, no pony tail. I wanted the world to see how much work I put into my work outs, and how confidently I can wear my muscles what I earned with sweat and pain. I just really needed to feel sexy, not a staff in the office, not a women in the kitchen, I wanted to be THE pretty girl on that photo.
I know lot of women thinks “ I wouldn’t be able to do it” but my answer : “ yes, you are”....and why? Because I kept saying the same. Buried myself in “safe” big, thick, long clothes and dresses. I was shy, I was afraid, but once those clothes are falling down, everything changes. I feel like I should have done it much more earlier. Being brave gives confidence, and confidence is the best thing what anyone ever could wear!

About reactions from other people
I was so afraid at first of course, but I needed to be brave, I made myself understand that I can’t pick other people’s fear up and make it mine. They will talk about me, doesn’t matter what, so I made their subject interesting! Beauty is so many kind of, and only we are the judge of what it means to us. Most of the time people talking about what other’s doing as they don’t have the courage to do it by them-self. Dare to push yourself out of your comfort-zone, so you can start your progression.
My boyfriend didn’t really knew what to say, he loved the pictures and how it made me feel, however he needed time to get use the fact that other people can see me whit so small, or no clothes on. it is understandable and I think It is really important to be honest with our partners. He is supporting every decision I make, and stand by me whit every steps, means heavier session in the gym or buying a sexy piece of underwear for the next photoshoots. My mom on the other hand, was screaming with all of the happiness ( quite literally) She was yelling how proud she is and her daughter is beautiful. My nanny said to me, I need to show it off until I have it....( yes, she is constantly reminding me for my age) My closer friends of mine all said they finally see the Women in that girl who they know. I mainly got positive reactions.
My biggest Support was Me. It is how it works.....I had days down and had days up, but kept going. Being the person you want to be is all depend on you and no one can really help. I needed to decide where I want to be in my life and kept going until I had it. Still have days when I don’t feel strong or happy but we are all allowed to feel fragile every now and then. Next day bring new challenges and when you win, you going to feel yourself again. The confident version of you.
About plans for 2020
I would like to carry on learning about modelling, make up, poses, but my main plans are to keep going heavier in the gym and perfect my forms.
Also want to go home to Hungary after 8 years and see my big brother, I have plenty of plans but I kind of like to go with the flow too.
I try maintain my social media Instagram: Anett Zámbó as much as my time lets me, but sooner or later I put everything up what I want people to see or what I think will motivate others.
