Obviously, I have lost a lot of weight over the past few months and I can really see and feel a physical change. But over the past week, I have noticed something that has been puzzling me. During each event I ran ,this last week, there were a ton of pictures taken with me in them. When I go back and review the pictures, why does it always seem, at least to me, that I look just as big as I did a few months ago in the mid section region? I know I have lost weight and I know my body has changed for the better, but why when I look at my picture do I feel like I still look heavy? I guess the camera really does add 10 pounds, which I don't really understand the science behind that. Do I sound crazy or does anyone else feel the same way?
Regardless of how I think I look in photographs, I know I am still losing weight and becoming healthier in the process. I might just have to destroy every picture I have ever been in and trust I will look better in the future. Tomorrow is another day and I am looking forward to what it may bring my way.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
