So I find it very frustrating to come across these "motivational" stories and the individual has supposedly lost 50-100+ pounds but when I go through their photos there are only pics of when they started or from where they are currently, instead of both before and afters. I know we are all different on our view of things but I myself am a visual learner and have found that it also inspires me to see how far someone has come that is around the same weight as me, but it's not enough to just read about it, I have to see the progress they've made. I think this comes from all the false advertising and just straight up lies that people tell in order to get attention or try and sell you an idea...I know that most people, if any, on this site are not trying to sell us anything and I am also aware that a lot of us are probably very uncomfortable with pics of our heaviest weight, after all the truth does hurt. But I have found that the truth has helped to motivate me more, I absolutely hate where I have gotten through mindless eating and lack of exercise which is why I've joined this site and posted pics that I dread, because if those pics are good for nothing else, they are good in helping to motivate me and by showing them to others it only helps to push me in staying on this track to a healthier lifestyle. I do plan on posting a pic, with similar shots of my beginning weight profile images, for every 25 pounds gone and I really do hope that those images only help to motivate others that find themselves in the same situation that I am currently.
