The "BEFORE" Photo
Friday, April 10, 2015
You know, I have tried MANY times to lose weight, but never, in any of my other attempts have I ever taken a "BEFORE" photo. That was REALLY hard to do! I now understand why they say it is crucial to do it. YOU DON'T WANT TO LOOK LIKE THAT!
I know this seems obvious, but everyday you get up and you get ready in front of a mirror and you constantly have that lingering thought in the back of your mind saying 'I need to lose weight'. But then you cover it up with clothes that are nice and baggy so no one sees that fat roll in the back. Or the apron instead of the vest because then you can look like whatever you want so long as the back of your shirt stays loose. Some women use make-up to attract attention to their eyes instead of their double chin. We do things on a daily basis that make us feel more pretty, but never take the time to look at what is REALLY there and to act upon it.
I'm going out on a limb here and posting my "BEFORE" photos. In doing so, I hope to see them every time I log on to SparkPeople to remind myself why I've started this. BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO LOOK LIKE THIS! I hope you take the time (with a TRUSTED friend/ family member) and take your "BEFORE" photo. It doesn't make you feel good, but it will motivate you tremendously.
Good luck on your journey.
