Before Pictures TAKE 2!!

After seeing your concerns and excitement over the idea of requiring pictures, I've decided to outline it better and start the poll over. I want to make sure that EVERYONE understands what this rule would entail BEFORE they vote!
If the rule were to go into effect this is what the requirements would be.
* A before picture is to be taken at the beginning of the competition (or in this case ASAP). These pictures should be emailed to biglosers2009@yahoo.com where they will NOT be published, just stored!
* The before picture must be a full body picture. If you have a picture with your full body that you would like to use, you are welcome to do that.
* At the end of each month the winners would be required to take an "After Pic" in the same outfit as whatever they were wearing in their before pic. (This could be jeans and a t-shirt but preferably something that is semi-form fitting. Like jeans and a shirt that is tighter....) THERE IS NO NEED TO TAKE BIKINI OR SKIMPY CLOTHING PICS!! TAKE YOUR PICS IN SOMETHING YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH!
* If a person wins who is not comfortable posting their pictures on the internet, they may EMAIL the picture to biglosers2009@yahoo.com for verification. (Know that if you choose to not post them, the pics will be seen by Tammy, Melissa and Karilynn. BUT no one else HAS to see them!!)
* If a person is willing to post them on their blog they are welcome and ENCOURAGED to do it.
SO.. now that you understand what it would mean... let's try the poll thing again.
THANKS GIRLS!!

Im fine with the before and after photos. Id like to do that anyway. Will it be an each month thing?

I sort of feel like if someone is determined to cheat, that the photos won't stop them... But I do agree that the broken scale thing was ridiculous.... so I am sort of on the fence. I would be fine with either...

I'm not a fan of changing the rules after something has started, if a picture was a monthly requirement. Then it should've been from the beginning.

I also think if someone is going to cheat they will find a way to do it regarless of what the requirement is (photoshop). It all comes down to honesty...

I'm in the contest to help kick me in the right direction. If I win something along the way great! if not then I would hope it goes to the person who has honestly done their best to win.

I sent the photos and to be honest it was humbling. I look at my self in the mirror all the time, but I have never viewer my self through someone elses eyes.

I don't like the rules changing after the competition started. If we allow this change, will we nitpick and find something else to require? I agree that if someone is going to try and cheat they will do it anyways.
