Capture Your "Before" Picture
You’re about to embark upon a journey that will change your body and your life, and nothing captures the results of this experience (at least the visible part of it) quite like a set of “before” and “after” photos.
Whether you just want to keep them privately as a personal reminder of how far you’ve come, or if you want to shout it from a mountain and share your story with the world, "Before" pictures are so powerful.
It’s best to have someone else take the photo, but, if you have to take the photo yourself (like a mirror-selfie), that’s ok.
Just don’t block your face with the camera; hold it somewhere to the side or below so that your face can be seen. And, try not to look at the screen while you’re doing it. Look into the lens (through the mirror) as you would if someone else were taking the photo. In terms of location, choose a well-lit area in front of a plain (not distracting) background or wall.
