TAKING BEFORE/AFTER PHOTOS
Take great before and after photos that you wouldn’t mind sharing with the world. Just be yourself and smile. you don’t need to push anything out or suck in for the camera. Just breathe normally and have a friend or family member take the photo for you.
Make sure you have good lighting if you’re inside, or go outside and take a picture with the sun behind the camera person’s head.
Wear shorts or speedos. Take pictures from the front, back and sides. You can flex or make it a personality picture. You can do whatever you want, just have fun with it.
Make sure you’re in front of a plain background or white wall and that the shot leaves no more than an inch of space at the top and the bottom. Include your ENTIRE body in the photo. Remember we will not post without your permission, so make it your best and know you have full control over your pictures. We just want you to see the dramatic changes that will happen over the next 12 weeks.
The best time to take photos and weigh yourself is in the morning, before consuming anything. No matter what time you choose, make sure it’s the same time every day.
Record your weight by using a scale. Make sure your scale is on a hard surface and the floor is level. Digital scales are usually more accurate, and it’s best to weigh yourself before you eat, shower or exercise because all of these things can cause your numbers to fluctuate.
KEEPING A TRAINING LOG
I highly advise you to keep a training log. you want to see your progress over time, so you can celebrate along the way. When you see yourself progressing week by week it will motivate you to push harder.
NOT GETTING DISCOURAGED
Don’t get discouraged if you don’t hit a goal you were aiming for and don’t compare yourself to others. Remember you are laying the foundation for long-term success and this is your new lifestyle. Your body needs time to adjust. As long as you’re consistent and committed, you will reach your goals.
