Same body, same angles (except I forgot to do my back, d’oh!), different location and different attire.
As you know, I do body progress shots in a bikini to show that I’m not using tricks of a camera or any fancy slimming clothing to make my figure look different. However, it occurred to me that, although it is great to show myself in such a way to mark progress, it doesn’t give a realistic view of how I look in day to day life. So every once in a while, I’ll be shooting pics wearing clothing. Today I snapped some pics after my run and cool down, so I’m wearing my running attire.
You can see the starts of a thigh gap. Though not important to me as huge thigh muscles are more my sort of thing, it’s still pretty good that it is fat loss causing the thigh gap. I’m wondering whether in time, muscles will fill the gap again or whether it will become bigger as I lose more fat and gain more muscle.
I am ridiculously happy with my progress, especially considering I’ve had to cut down to working out 3x a week and took some time off completely while I was ill. This is why it is so important to take regular photos to document your journey because you don’t often notice the changes when looking at yourself in the mirror every day. So try posting some body progress pics in a bikini (if you’re a fellow female) or topless and in shorts if you’re a guy AND some pics in snug-fitting (but not tight) clothing to gain a different perspective.
I can’t believe the different I’m getting in my thighs, that’s the weightlifting and running for you! I’ll be posting my usual bikini body progress either tonight or tomorrow once Thom gets here so I can take proper photos (self timer is so hit and miss).
