OK so I was looking through old pictures the other day and I came across some from my 21st birthday party. Now when you think back 6 years ago do you remember what you looked like?
For those of us struggling with our weight sometimes I think we forget how we used to look. For me it was an eye opener. I think I forgot how long I have been carrying this extra weight around. I guess back in those days I was more confident so I didn't "feel" as fat as I have these last 2 years.
So I scanned in this picture and I plan to add it in with my collection of "fat" pictures. It is yet another reminder for me of why it is so important for me to keep moving on the treadmill, to keep going to my weight watchers meetings.
I think it is vital to any weight loss program to take progress pictures. It gives you an incentive of what you are working towards and what you used to be. For me looking back at pictures is really the only way I am awakened to just how far I have come. When we look in the mirror everyday we get used to that image that we see. We do not see often how much that person looking back has changed.
So stay motivated, take pictures and track your progress! It is vital to a successful weight loss regiment!
