Before Pictures for the Summer Challenge

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

Oh pictures, how I loathe you. A necessary evil though in a journey to health and weight loss. Last season I started a biggest loser challenge here on spark and just out of curiosity I decided to take before and after pictures. Let me tell you that before picture kicked my butt into gear. It was NOT pretty and I never wanted to see it again. The after picture was still not fantastic by any means but was visual proof of what 20lbs loss looks like and allowed me to see that progress is happening.

Well this week starts a new challenge, 10 weeks long. So time for new before pictures and new measurements and a new boost to my motivation.





Its hard to look at these, but Im excited by the idea that when I hit goal I will be able to stitch together a timeline of photos that show what hard work can do and to see how far Ive come.

    What a great way to look at the dreaded pictures. I'm sure I'm not the only one who could use some motivation, maybe I need to find a place to post my pictures so I can have the more frequent reminder.

    I think you are spot on with having photos and measurements to tell the tale of your journey. Why each step is difficult you'll have a lot to review and be proud of.

Keep up the awesome work gorgeous!!
