Default Pictures and measurements-NSV!!!

I took my measurements last month, along with 3 photos of myself (front, back, and side view) with the intention of checking in after a month and seeing how I did. I hadn't lost much weight in the past month, so I was really hesitant to take my measurements and pictures. I took my measurements yesterday, and overall, the results were not too shabby. I didn't lose any inches in my arms, but I kind of expected that. I did however, lose inches everywhere else. Some places were only quarter of an inch, but some places, like my hips, I lost an inch and a half! When I did my measurements, I made very specific notes of where I was measuring so that I could measure in the same spot each time.

I was still pretty apprehensive about what the pictures would say, so today I finally bit the bullet and took them. I have my other ones saved so that I can make a side by side comparison, and I can actually see a difference! I still have a long way to go, but I can actually tell. My extra chin is smaller, my neck and chest don't look as flabby, my stomach looks (just a little bit) smaller, and my legs look smaller too. Another thing I noticed is that the pants I wore (same ones in both photos) are not skin tight anymore! It's nice to see a change, even though I know I could have worked harder. But still, this shows progress. And what an incentive to keep working! Imagine what the next set of pics could look like!
Mini-goal for now: Get back on track!!!
One for every 5 lbs lost

Congrats on the progress! I'm thinking of taking my before photos tomorrow!
I can definitely see how much seeing the progress in pics would be motivating. Keep going! xx

Excellent! Even though taking "before" photos feels terrible, imho, it's really worth it to do the comparisons later.

Congrats to you!!

I wish I had taken before pics and measurements. I have a 'rough' idea where my measurements were since I had done it years ago, just can't remember where I wrote them down I'm sure I can scrounge up soem pictures some where though . . . not sure if I want to ha ha.

Congrats again to you! Keep at it
Live real, live hope.
