Something special for week ten

I realize many of you out there might be "against" such an idea, but here is what I propose.

The diet, and all of you involved, has really helped me to succeed. When I posted photos of my starting weight, and my first month weight, I did so semi-reluctantly. I figured that by doing so, I could mentally show myself how others viewed me. I know that my personal perception of my body is only based on how I feel, and with that - denial may set in - which it did for me.

So, what I propose to any of you experiencing a plateau in your success on the diet, or you are only seeing mediocre results each week. Post two photos of yourself when you weigh in for week ten.

The first photo should be of yourself sometime before you ever started dieting. Some of you have already done this, so if you can't find any other photos than those you've posted, no big deal. But I know I can find a ton of photos that I'd not want to be posted but I will post another one.

The second photo should be of ourself on the day that you weigh in for week ten. You don't have to get naked. In fact, I request that you don't. ;)

This way, you - and all of us - can compare the photos and see how far you've come - which will hopefully inspire you to continue working as hard as you did in the beginning of your diet - and hopefully this will start to spread better results to the entire list of dieters.

Remember, this isn't a demand. But this has really helped me personally, and I thought it might help you.

I'll do it! Fully clothed of course! :) It does help, and seeing even a little difference is a great motivator!

I will think about it. I will have to take a recent photo, but I have a feeling you won't see much of a difference. I am trying to get motivated, and I have been really doing good, but I just can't seem to lose the weight. UGH!!!!
