Taking the 'before' pictures !!
Yesterday I spent a couple of hours trawling through the before and after pictures that are in various places throughout the forum (I don't discriminate on how the weight was lost!) and what I found was that, the before pictures were mostly, half body or facial shots only, so the differences, although obvious, weren't well documented.
The best before and afters I saw were full length shots and, for me at least, the underwear/swimwear shots really stood out as I could see that one day, I might actually look OK naked (not that my DH has ever complained and obviously finds me attractive.... I will NEVER understand men!)
So in the interests of keeping me motivated, this morning I took the camera upstairs and took some brutally honest shots of myself front, back and both sides which I will repeat after every 5kg loss. I have NO intention of posting ANY of them until I get to 77kg, which is 4st10lb away from the here and now!
Anyway, what I'm suggesting is that we all take a few full length shots of ourselves (obviously underwear shots are entirely optional!!) as we embark on this journey and that we take them regularly. The tape measure and scales only really tell half of the story.
I get so much motivation and inspiration from the before and afters I want to be able to share my success and perhaps inspire and motivate others to do the same.
