Progress Pictures- Why They're Important

I know selfless are all the rage right now, but in all seriousness do you guys take progress pictures? If you don't I highly encourage you to! You don't have to share them and no one needs to see them but you, but they can be the best form of measuring your progress. 


I scrolled back on my Instagram to find this comparison and I was so pleasantly surprised. Sometimes you think you're putting in so much hard work and results are slow or small, but then you look at two pictures side by side and realize just how far you've come. 

It's also worth noting although the scale is one way to measure progress, it is by no means the most important way so move past that number! I've been focused on leaning out for about 6-7 weeks now and the scale has only dropped about 2 lbs but my body is changing every day. How do I know I'm making progress if the scale isn't budging? Progress pics! Do it. Take them. Love them. :) 

I'd love to see your progress! Post them on my Facebook page in the comments section of this post, let's help motivate ourselves and others!

  1. So true about the scale, I have friends that weigh themselves daily, even several times a day. I try to explain what a bad tool that is, But they just don't get it. I don't know why people are so focused on weight. I normally never weigh myself, but because I'm training for a show right now, my coach weighs me weekly. In the last 9 weeks, I have lost 6% body fat, but my weight is has only dropped by 2-3 pounds. That's something like 8 pounds of fat I have lost, and obviously added lots of muscle, so I look completely different, yet my weight is about the same.

    1. That is SO awesome! I'm glad you're not worried about the scale, that's a huge accomplishment in itself :)

  2. I remember your post a while ago about not comparing yourself to others and instead focusing on being the best version of you. On that post you were referring to your shoulders. You've done good, they look amazing!
