Despite the fortune and her stunning good looks, Amanda admitted achieving Instagram fame took a lot of hard work on her part – and she eventually had to pay the price.

In a Cosmopolitan interview, Amanda revealed:

“Once I got all the followers, I re-evaluated things – like, is this really me? For my mental health, I don’t want to get so wrapped up in perfection. I want to be more confident in myself without trying so hard.”

Followers love her for her inspiring fitness posts – and her saucy photos.

She is totally aware of that and so she added:

“I always wanted to appeal to everyone. but I got seduced by people’s responses and side-tracked trying to maintain this curvy physique and build a sexy brand.”

Like most people, Amanda confessed she spends time before picking what photos to post.

She uses filters, edits her face and body using a separate app, and then finally makes the upload. “People might think I literally step out, click, and — done! — perfect photo,” she said. “But it’s not like that.”

It’s definitely not easy trying to be perfect.

Olinda Fields, Amanda’s mother and primary photographer, also shared:

“She still gets anxious. There’s a lot of pressure to keep up with daily posting and people tend to be critical of your looks. She gets overwhelmed. There’s a side of Amanda that no one sees.”

Amanda still feels bad about herself from time to time.

While she’s happy about all the positive comments, she said:

“I read them and I’m like, ‘That’s great, but it’s about the Instagram Amanda. People don’t know the real me.”

The model also pointed out:

“People might look at me and think, ‘Your body is amazing,’ but I look at other girls’ pages and think, Oh my God, SHE is so perfect!”

Amanda has had breast enhancement and Botox but she clarified her butt is 100% authentic.
