Ahhhh the dreaded BEFORE pics

Friday, March 01, 2013

So I did it.

Wasn't even planned either. But I took the dreaded horrid before pics. And saved them in a folder called "yuck" Actually I need to delete that ..............
There, all done.

So anyway, I took a few extremely unflattering pics. Then edited anything identifiable out of them. I explained why in one of the comments but I'll explain again.

The reason I'm able to be myself here, and post freely and honestly about everything.. my weight, my thoughts and feelings, daily BS of life... is because none of you KNOW me in the real world. It's completely anonymous.

For it to keep working for me, I need to keep it that way. Hell, for all I know, I have friends that belong to SP. Maybe someday, when I've lost a LOT and feel comfortable with telling the people I know "Hey I weighed 230 pounds at the beginning of 2013" Then maybe Ill be more comfortable with mixing my SP life with my non SP life.

But even with the anonymity, this is a HUGE step for me. I've taken before pics in the past. But NEVER in my life have I published them A-N-Y-P-L-A-C-E!!!
I'm basically naked more or less. I mean yeah I have clothes on, but the pics that I have them pulled tight, you can see every ounce of fat. Never did that before. But that just shows how determined I am to see it through this time.

I plan to do this every month... every 10 pounds. One or the other. Or when I reach goals. Like my first one being 199. I'm not going to take pics at 200 then more at 199. You get it I'm sure. It will be interesting to see my shape change through pics.

But anyway, that's it for now. Oh and as you can probably see, I'm giving the spark blog another chance. Its too much work to bounce back and forth. I'll just put the venting blogs on the other site so I don't have the language police on my butt.

    they're in my album. I can't wait to start seeing a difference when I take them.

    Where are the photos? I tell my friends in the real world about Spark, but until they are ready to make a change, they don't visit the site. We are all caught up in our own dramas that we don't have attention for anyone else's. I like the anonymity of Spark too. I can blog about things here that I can't in my real world. It's very liberating.
