Okay, here are my September 1, 2010 "before" photos. Yes, photos. Plural. I have decided to post three of them, and I will tell you why. When you see ads for weight-loss-whatever, the before photo always shows the person making them self look fatter with bad posture and a depressed facial expression. Then, in the after photo, they are strategically posed, sucking it in, and super happy. I could take both of those pictures right now! So, I did. This "before" series of photos includes one sticking-it-out/sad-faced photo, one just-standing-there-normally photo, and one trying-to-suck-it-in-and-pose photo. The three fattest versions of me are as follows:
Fat, ugly face, bad posture pose:
Normal, just standing there pose:
Trying unsuccessfully to make myself look skinnier than I really am pose:
Look how much I've accomplished in just 30 seconds!
I plan on posting the same series of three photos on September 30th (taken on September 30th). Here is to hoping they don't look identical to these ones!
Now that this is posted...I actually have to do stuff to ensure that I make a difference! ACK! Wish me luck, motivation, and will power!
