The Missouri 60

I haven't participated in any of the challenges going around the blogsphere but I think I'm going to bite the bullet and join the Missouri 60. You can check out the details over at The Anti Jared.

Tony "the AntiJared" tells it like it is and doesn't hold anything back. He is brutally honest, gets up at an ungodly hour, works around food all day, doesn't cut himself any slack and doesn't make any excuses. I don't know if I'll ever be as disciplined as he is but I guess that is why he has been successful with weight loss and I'm still floundering. I want to be that dedicated to my health so let's see what I can do.

The basic rules of the Missouri 60 are:

1. Take a picture of yourself between now and June 30th
2. Take a picture of yourself 60 days after
3. Show yourself how great you can be!

There will be prizes but that's not what this is about. The real prize is feeling better about myself and getting healthy. I need to SHOW ME that I can do this.
I'm a photographer so I'm always behind the camera lens and run away when one gets pointed in my direction but pictures don't lie. I'm always shocked when I see a picture of myself. I can't believe I look THAT fat. I don't look that fat in the mirror, do I? It must be a bad angle, bad lighting, bad outfit, just bad, bad, bad. Am I really that fat? YES I AM. Pictures don't lie.
Let's see if I can live up to the challenge and SHOW ME what I can do in 60 days. Anyone want to do the Missouri 60 with me?
