Before & After Photos: It's OK to Share the "Before" & Love Yourself Right Now! by Courtney Battista Bish
I love my friends who have had dramatic weight loss and their photos. I'm proud of you and your journey! (All the happy, but a little jealous … whatever.)
But it's OK to post photos of yourself when you're not there yet. When you're the "before" photo. When you have 30, 50, 100-plus pounds to go in your journey. With leftover weight from that big old baby two years ago (or that big old pizza last week, no judgment here). Where you've had a bad hair day or you're not in the size clothes you want to be in.
Love yourself anyhow because after you're gone, people aren't going to talk about how you needed to lose weight or needed a new haircut or different clothes. That's just the window dressing of your life.
So here's me. The "before" where maybe someday there will be an "after." In the meantime, I'll enjoy this time in my life (and that bowl of ice cream). Perfection is overrated, anyhow.
