Stand with your back to the mirror and hold up your phone so that you're taking a picture of the mirror. Shut off the flash and make sure your room is well lit.

Also, have you checked the settings on your phone? Most phones these days have timers. You can set the timer, put the phone propped up and facing you, and the phone will take the picture for you.

I'm able to prop the phone up on my shoulder without twisting too much to take a picture of my back. But I might be pretty flexible. Else, you'll need to set a timer or have another person take a photo of you.
Diet: vegan

Start date: Sept. 2013 at 216lbs
End date: whatever weight gives me a flat stomach. I'm apple-shaped.
216: size 16 jeans, XL shirts
185: size 14
170: size 12, L shirts
165: size 10
159: size 8, M shirts
150: size 6
140: size 4 (can't find anything smaller in womens)
130: size 5 (juniors)

*Note: these are the sizes I usually fit when I try on things at Walmart/Kohls/JCPenny/Sears etc. ALL of them practice vanity sizing.

Check out my siggy! I did that - just use a mirror and twist - its not comfy but you only need to snap a couple for a few seconds.

I listened to my gut and it said "You could do with less of me."
