Photographs as Motivation

Saturday, August 16, 2008

One way I have kept myself motivated is taking pictures of myself. I used to run and shy away from the camera but, I have become such a Ham! It is amazing to see my body transform in photos.

Seeing my weight loss, and my muscles grow in photos has been a great way to motivate me and keep me working hard. When you see how your efforts have been paying off, you will be more likely to keep with it. I know it helps me. Sometimes I can't believe it is ME in the photos! How did I do that? Oh yeah, it's been all that hard work you do finally paying off! Yeah Baby!

Whatever stage in your journey you are at, document your progress with photos. Each month take a new photo, You will be happy you did. Believe me. Try it.

And I just figured out how to use the self-timer on my camera. It's only been 3 years since I have owned the darn thing! I have mentioned I am a true blonde, right?

    I agree--there's nothing more motivating than seeing one's progress in pictures. And you look AWESOME, girlfriend! emoticon

    I know how to use the self-timer on my digital camera, I just can never figure out how to stand in the right place so I get in the picture. emoticon

    That's soo true! I'll have to give it a try. I think I can do it using my web cam since my digital got broken by one of the little ones at home. He's our photographer so now we need to be more careful when he uses the cameras now!

    Thanks for some motivation!

    You are one hot iron maiden, my friend! I've always hated being on the other side of the camera... so much so that I didn't even take a beginning photo. I don't run away from the camera in social functions anymore, but I wish I did take a new photo every month to document my journey. Good advice!
