Oh, I've taken "before" photographs in the past.....many......many, times.
And I usually hope that no one sees them. I keep them until I've hit my "goal" or my "after", and then I share....and then if things don't go as planned, then I delete, delete, delete!
But, this time is different!
Honestly, the only thing scarier than taking "before" pictures and hoping that no one sees them is actually knowingly and willingly sharing them!
Yes, that's why it's one of the top scariest things I've ever done.
Why is it SOOOO scary?
It's scary because there in no "after" picture.....yet!
Why would I want to share my "before" pictures before I have my "after" pictures?
My Top Reason- There isn't anything in the world that will make you more accountable than knowing that you're sharing your story and pictures in real time!
I am SO sure that I will have amazing results that I'm not waiting until the "after"; I'm sharing the "before" and the "currently"....
I am ready to complete my programs the way they were designed to be completed. And that means for me:
- Working out when I would rather not
- Making smarter decisions and eating cleaner
- Realizing when I am hungry vs- stressed, bored, tired, thirsty
- Making time instead of trying to find time (If you're looking for extra time, you'll never find it....Believe me, I've looked for it everywhere!)
- Sharing my successes and failures with others who may have been in the same situation before or are currently struggling.
I'm hoping that when I have my "after" pictures, I won't be the same person.
I won't be the same person who is tired of being tired.
I won't be the same person who is asked by strangers if they are pregnant.
I won't be the same person who is told the only way to lose their belly fat is to get a tummy tuck.
I won't be the same person who is destined to be a certain shape.
I am ready to work hard and see REAL results in REAL time!
