Pictures are the best way to mark your progress. As women, we love to see the change and sometimes the scale doesn’t give us the whole picture. It doesn’t tell us if we’ve gained muscle or toned our legs and arms. Plus, you’ll be able to see your confidence rise and your bright smile as the weeks go on!
Taking that first picture will be hard but rest assured that if you work hard and eat healthy, you’ll never have to see the person in that picture again. Use that picture to remind you of your goals and to empower you along your journey.
So to help, we’ve compiled a list of things to help you take your before and after photos!
1. The Tools
Have a friend, family member, or significant other take a photo of you with a digital camera. A selfie isn’t bad but you’ll want to use a digital camera to see the full picture
2. The Angles
Take the photos from different angles. A Front, Side, and Back View are all necessary angles to get a good look at your full transformation. Remember to get your entire body!
3. Be relaxed
Don’t suck in or push out and keep your hands by your side or on your hips. Also, make sure you show your beautiful smile!
4. Plain is Better
Pose in front of a plain background. Bathrooms are too crowded and you don’t really get a full view of your body.
5. Dress the Part
Wear swimwear or fitting workout gear. Maybe that bikini you’ve been dying to wear! You want to show off as much of your body as you can to see the changes
6. Let there be light
Make sure the room has natural lighting. It’s also best to take the photos in the morning because at night, the dark shadows will cast an unflattering light on you and it could also skew the shape of your body.
So, now that you’ve got the idea, make an effort to post up a picture for accountability when you’re comfortable! At the end of the month, tag us @getfitnowpt to show us your transformation. We can’t wait to see all of your progress!
