Home Forums Getting Started Taking Progress Photos

  • Taking Progress Photos

    Posted by KaLinda on October 21, 2021 at 3:30 am

    When beginning your fitness journey or starting a new program, one thing we often suggest is taking progress photos. This can seem daunting to some, especially if you’re not pleased with where you are physically, but it is so helpful along the way. Oftentimes, it’s hard to see the little changes that are happening every day, since you look at yourself every day. We’ve seen it time and time again where warriors are discouraged because they don’t think they’re making any progress, but then they take progress photos and compare with their starting photos and notice a lot of change! Here are a few tips for taking photos:

    -Take front, side, and back angles

    -Wear something where you can see your waist and figure, like leggings/shorts and a sports bra

    -Take photos in good lighting with a plain background

    -If you don’t have someone to take photos for you, use the selfie mode and timer setting on your phone.

    -Take photos every 2-4 weeks throughout a program

    Not gonna lie I’ve been slacking on my progress pics. I swear every time I remember to take them, its when I’m on my cycle and bloated, then forget after the fact. 🤦🏽‍♀️ I’m gonna start taking them again and share.

    I too had an issue with posting pics cause honestly I didn’t like how I looked but to hell with it!! This is me and that’s that 😉🤩 We can’t be shamed of who we are and what we are trying to become. Shit takes time and energy so let’s give our all…we paid for it so let’s get FINE!!! #MaWarrior4Eva 💪🏾✌🏾

      Haha! Well, we love sharing all of your progress because it encourages others, but we also are mindful that some aren’t comfortable sharing and totally respect that! So, if you’re up for it and willing to share, go for it, but if not I would encourage still taking them just for your own motivation!

    I plan on taking progress photos Sunday. Is this a safe/appropriate place to post them?

      Latasha, you can post them here if you wish and that would be fine, but also e-mailing them to [email protected] would be ideal as well!
