Before you begin, you should take pictures – trust me… this will give you a HUGE burst of motivation in the near future. You are going to make some HUGE changes in your body. The changes will be amazing.
Then, you will take pictures again after Week 4 and after Week 8. You’ll be able to compare your results from the beginning to midway to the end of the program. You will notice the HUGE changes, and you’ll be motivated to move onto the next program and continue with your new healthy lifestyle. You’ll be hooked after using the WLC System for only 8 weeks.
Here’s the guidelines to use when taking before, midway, and after pictures:
1. For men: Wear a small pair of shorts for your pictures… wear the same pair in all your pictures if at all possible. A pair of compression shorts works well, boxer shorts, swimming trunks, or anything like that will work. A smaller pair will allow you to see the changes in your legs. For women: You can follow the same guidelines as men or wear a 2-piece swim suit or bikini. Anything that allows you to see the most changes is the best. You can always keep the pictures private.
2. Stand against a bare wall. It’s best to take the picture against a solid-colored wall. You can hang a solid-colored sheet or blanket on the wall if needed. You want the background color to be the same in the before and after pictures.
3. Good lighting is a must. Lighting for the before and after pictures also needs to stay the same. So try to find a good spot in your home and use that spot for the before and after pictures. Use the flash on your camera if needed. Experiment to find the best conditions for your pictures.
4. Use a camera tripod if possible and know exactly how far you place the tripod so you can take the exact same pictures the next time around. A friend or family member can also take the pictures if you don’t have a tripod. A tripod allows you to take pictures under the exact same conditions, though, so one is highly recommended.
5. Take 4 different pictures:
One from the front
One from the back
One from the left side
One from the right side
6. Write down the exact conditions for taking your pictures so you don’t forget and so you can duplicate them exactly. Jotting the conditions down only takes a few minutes and it’s worth it. For example, write down the camera settings, distance from the camera, flash setting, etc. You can use tape on the floor to keep the exact positions.
7. Practice until you get them right. If you’ve never taken many pictures before, it may take a little while to get them right.
8. Work on getting a better tan from the beginning to the end of the program. Regular sunlight exposure is very good for you. Don’t overdo it, though, and get sunburn. Be careful in the sun. Sunlight has very many benefits but can harm you if you get burnt.
9. Save the digital pictures to your computer in the folder that you created for this program. Print the pictures out and put them in this binder. Over the next few pages, you will find a place holder for before, midway, and after pictures.
10. Use your pictures to see the progress you've made. It's very inspiring.
