Day 69 - Revealing Myself, Part III
Friday, February 06, 2015
It's been 2 months since I first post photos of myself. I had started the program a couple weeks earlier than those first photos were taken, so they aren't true "before" photos, but they're as close as I'm going to get. I took pictures the other day, and thought I'd do a before-and-after collage. This is photographic evidence (to go along with many other Sparkers who have had similar success as mine) that this program works!
The photos on the left were taken on 12/6/14, the ones on the right were taken 2/4/15:
Left Side View
Right Side View
I find it humorous that, except for the rear view photo, I look more tan in the newer photos. This has nothing to do with my skin color or the amount of sun I'm getting. It's just that the lighting was different in the two rooms where the photos were taken. It's like those photos that diet pill companies use to show how their products work: in the before picture, the person is fat, pale, and frowning; and in the after picture, the person is tan, fit, and smiling from ear to ear!
I have lost 21 pounds since I started on SP. I'm about 16 pounds from my goal, and I'm loving the changes that are happening to me! Just a reminder to everyone considering joining: this does not happen by accident! You have to make the changes in your life that cause change in your body, your health, and your happiness! You MUST use the tools on SparkPeople to track what you eat and how many calories you burn through your activities. I promise that you will learn to make healthy choices, and you will see changes just like I have.
Have a great Friday, everyone! I know I will!!!
