The timing of this could not be more right! I was doing really well until my mom had serious health issues. Much time in hospital with stress and take out added up. I finally was getting back on track when my rotator cuff blew while doing a plank and a very close friend passed. I have spent the last couple of months doing nothing and eating ALL the carbs.
I'm not posting weight but rather progress (seeing that number will pull my head out of the zone).

In 2018 I was in fairly good shape. I got lazy, broke my shoulder, was drinking more, etc... I slowly gained 38 lbs. I saw Christmas pictures of myself and decided to get into the best shape of my life.

Most of the time it happens by accident. A camera comes out at a party or family event and starts snapping away. Later, you see the photos and wonder who that fat guy is in the tight shirt.
About .08 seconds later you realize that fat person is you.
The human mind has a large capacity for self-deception and ego-protection. Cameras don't. And while you often hear "the mirror is the best physique evaluation tool," the camera is even better... and more unforgiving.
If you're serious about this physique augmentation thing, you're going to have to do the dirty deed: get a camera, don't flex or pose, and take a few pics from the front, side and back, maybe a couple while training.
This could very well be a painful experience, which is exactly why you need to do it. Nothing gets you back on task like the unsuspecting uppercut of reality.
Most weight trainers see what they want to see in the mirror, whether they're aware of it or not. Beware the mirror of the mind. Take the psychological blinders off and really evaluate yourself, both physically and mentally. Photos accomplish both tasks nicely.
So ask yourself, "Am I just dicking around with my goal of having a muscular, hard body or am I serious?" If you're serious, you'll get out the digital cameral, web cam, or 35mm and start taking pics. You'll do it shamelessly and you won't try to manipulate the lighting or posing to comfort your poor wittle ego.
Don't wait unit your cousin shows you the pics he took at Christmas, the ones that make you wonder who that fat (or puny or skinny-fat or whatever) guy or gal is. Conduct your own reality check. You may be a "before" even if your mind tells you you're an "after."
Don't sweat it too much though. This photo record may be initially painful but it can also be hugely rewarding. Since we look at ourselves daily in the mirror, it's often tough to note slow and steady progress, especially for experienced lifters who are long over their rapid "newbie gains." The photos will light your way, and you'll likely be very pleased when you look back at last year's pics.The camera — cruel, horrible, relentless *kitten* that it is — will set things straight. Do it.
