Pictures can send powerful messages. You’ve probably seen your fair share of "Before” and “After” photos showcasing transformed physiques. I know I have seen plenty of them on television or in a magazine. These photos can be motivating. It’s pretty inspiring to see how someone turned themselves into a chiseled art form, and then proudly displays their progress saying, “Look at what I did! You can do it too!”
I’m not against taking “Before” and “After” photos. In fact I still use photos as a way to document progress when I don’t want to rely solely on the scale. But the problem is that we don’t get to live our lives in our “After” photo. Unlike a photo, we are not fixed objects. We are always changing.

I like to run, take pictures and write. I've combined all three in this blog.
