When you immerse into one of my programs, particularly Taller Slimmer Younger 10 Week Transformation, I recommend you take 'before' and 'after' photos for your own self satisfaction and comparison. Also before you start any transformation, it’s important to know where you’re at now. This is going to be your baseline – and things are about to look up because it’s all going to get firmer, taller, more sculpted and more toned! So get measuring and taking your 'before' and 'after' photos because this will help motivate you to keep going! Below are my top tips...
1. MAKE SURE EACH PHOTO IS CONSISTENT
When you take your photos, be sure to take both your ‘before’ and your ‘after’ photos in a consistent environment, in the same clothes, with the same background. Ideally, you even take your photos at the roughly same time of day so the lighting is also the same. If you take your photo in a mirror, check the ‘before’ photo so you are standing a similar distance away and holding the phone the same way when you take your ‘after’ photo.
Feel free to take your photo in whatever clothes you are comfortable in that show enough of your body/skin to be able to note the difference in muscle tone, shape and size. You can wear a swimsuit if you choose, or even a workout top or bra and shorts or tight-fitting leggings that show your body shape.
3. TRY DIFFERENT ANGLES
Taking pictures from different angles (i.e. from the side, straight on, from behind) is a great idea. Take multiple shots just to be safe – also you may see something noticeably different from the side versus straight on – you never know.
4. BE BRAVE AND SHARE
I know many people feel nervous just taking these sort of photos - let alone sharing them. I get it! Don’t worry - you don’t have to share them if you really don’t want to. But I encourage you to send them in. First and foremost we will NEVER post or show your photos to anyone without your express permission regardless of whether you win or not. This is an internal policy we recently put in place as we value your trust above anything else. This transformation is 100% about you. Taking a photo is a timestamp, it represents a commitment to yourself as well as a commitment to me. It’s something that you can look back on. It’s something you can stick to your bathroom mirror as daily motivation to keep committed to this journey.
5. REMEMBER IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT THE PHOTOS
Please know that while photos are a great way to track your progress, this isn’t just about how you look. It’s also about how you feel. So I would encourage you to write a short testimonial on how the TSY Program has affected you and your life.
