We all change as the years go by… too often we become obsessed with our appearance, and looking a certain way to appease others. When I started my personal fitness program over 25 years ago, I made a promise to not be in competition with anyone… but myself. Eventually I realized that taking pictures of yourself isn’t just for selfies, it’s a great way of documenting progress in the gym, seeing what you’re capable of, and also accepting that you can’t always look a certain way all the time. Life happens, and sometimes it’s major. It’s only human nature to have ups and downs, to gain and lose weight… to not feel so great about yourself. Just always remember you were there once, and you can get there again. So here’s my gallery of me. Just me being me, and competing…. with myself.
