Procrastination and my "before" photo

Tuesday, January 13, 2015

It's not that I don't want to...OK I don't want to a little. I have mentioned on my page that I hate photos of me, but I love the idea of measurable improvement. emoticon I know I don't look the way I want to emoticon and, in some ways, an awful photo now will make the transformation appear that much more amazing emoticon ...right?

So why have I still not taken it? My verbalized "reasons" are that I need to tidy up my office so it makes a decent background, I need to figure out the perfect outfit (show enough, but not too much...and something that I can use "after" for an apples to apples comparison), and it needs to be a good hair day emoticon

So why haven't I cleaned up my office and picked out an outfit ? (hair will do what hair will do and that is NOT what we are really looking at anyway!).

I actually don't know the answer. emoticon

But this much I CAN say. My next blog post WILL have a photo...even if it is a bad hair day and there are still piles of clothes and papers in the background. emoticon

    I keep thinking I should do it too but, you know, other stuff gets in the way and I really don't feel like it anyway. Maybe next week!

    I plan to do this too, and am also procrastinating! I did it once before and it truly is inspirational to see how much your body shrinks after only 15-20 lb weight loss, it's really motivating. But I know what you mean, I feel like, for me, I don't really want those photos out there? Although after the holidays this year there are SO MANY of me at my hugest, I don't know why I'm stressing taking an "official" before shot.
    LOL
    Good luck, maybe I'll post one too - one of these days! emoticon

    I've done several photos and you will really be amazed at the differences you can see as you drop the weight! I know I am always amazed! You can also use a photo program to crop them so you don't see much of the background! That is what I do and Fotor is a free one!

    I took some photos back in July (one is on my page) and more a few days ago. Was I glad I did! I was very pleasantly surprised how different I look after loosing 18 pounds in 6 months. It was so noticeable in my side view photo. My belly is definitely much smaller. I also could tell that my butt was smaller in the back view shot too.

    So....just do it. Down the road you will be glad you did.
