I'm going to be very brave and post some photos of myself, especially some that are not very flattering. Here's a photo timeline to show my weight loss progression. One of these days I'll get a bit braver about doing full length shots - I'm not there quite yet! However, looking at these photos, I can see all the hard work I've done and the progress I've made. I'm proud of having made health and fitness a commitment in my life, and hope it inspires you to do the same!
