Me You Capture

I've been debating this all week in my head. Do I really want to take pictures of myself and post them willy nilly on my blog? I mean, I know my friends know what I look like and they see me at my worst and occasionally even at my best, but lately I just haven't wanted my picture taken. And by lately I mean over the past 10 years, since I started gaining weight. However, I have started earnestly losing the weight and it would probably be a good idea to occasionally have some pictures of me so that I can see the physical changes that are going on with me. So I took the plunge and did what Beth asked. I took a couple of pictures of myself. I thought about it all day and tried to figure out the best way to do this and of course the best time. I never found the "perfect" place or time so I decided to just do it....I chose right before I worked out

and right after I worked out...

Not exactly the most flattering pictures but they are pretty real. This is what I look like every night anywhere between 9:30 and 11:00 p.m.

And now I have pictures of myself, taken with my cell phone, of what I look(ed) like in early August of 2009 after already losing over 20 pounds, but still needing to lose 60 more pounds. Let's do this again around Christmas, k??

Yay for being brave!! It was difficult for me, too. I went back and forth about a dozen times before finally posting! Good for you, Ann!

I'm with you. Let's check back in come December and see how much we've changed! Keep up the great work!
