We've not posted before & "progress" photos on the blog yet, but I think it's important to see. Not only because it's proof we're looking & feeling better, but also to keep us accountable.
I recently decided what my "before" photo would be - it was taken just 3 months ago while visiting family/friends in Florida. It was appalling to me, really, to see how much I had let go of maintaining at least a slightly healthy appearance. This past weekend, I was wearing the same sweater and decided it was advantageous to take a progress pic to see just how far I have come.
I still have a ways to go ... in small goals, it's 10 pounds 4 more times. But, at least I can see there's been progress made and I am motivated to continue in this direction as to avoid being uncomfortable and self conscious about my weight.
