This is why I started my Fitness Journey

This is why I started my Fitness Journey

I have mentioned several times in my blog about seeing my body in the mirror one day, and have finally gotten around to posting the picture. I am not pleased with this picture, and to be honest I really don’t want to post it. However, I have seen others do it, and I believe posting the picture is a way of me showing I am not going to allow fear to keep a hold on me.

  1. I know the fear of posting an unflattering picture and I also know that it puts it out there so you have no where else to move but forward, with accountability. It keeps me accountable. How long ago was this? I’m new to your blog, so I am not sure of the journey… I’ll have to go back and re-read.

    • Thanks! I appreciate the kind words and I put off posting it for a long, long time. However, I kept seeing people post pictures that were much worse than myself, and if those people can do it, then there was no reason why I couldn’t. I am ashamed of the picture, and I guess the biggest issue I have with it is that I allowed myself to get that way.

      I’ll never forget the day I saw myself in the mirror and thought, “Jared, is that really you”???? I took this picture after that particular incident. I guess this picture was taken between last August/mid September.

      I think it will help me keep after it because the next photo I post will be much better. I don’t want or care for having a body of a Greek God, but I don’t want to feel ashamed for how I look without a shirt on.

      Thanks again for taking the time to write, and please let me know what your thoughts of are of my blog.
