    Hello,

    You may look at this thread.

      That thread has a few but I'm afraid darebee just isn't that kind of website.

      How your body reacts depends so heavily on your trainig level, genetics, body, habits and diet that comparisons are very useless. I did Cardio Trim and didn't lose a single gram, others will do it and lose 2kg.
      One person will do Gravity and get impeccable pecs out of it, another may get good at push ups but not see any difference in the chest area.

      When I was on fitocracy a lot of people were so into presenting themselves that they posted pictures of them every day in different groups. Sometimes in nonsensical contexts (like posting in the "after squat challenge" group before doing the squat challenge and with no intention of doing so). The membership is free so if images like that motivate you I would suggest you give it a whirl.

        I could do a picture from now and one for 1.5 years ago and there would be 30 lbs difference but I don't attribute that to any one program (or to exercising really). Cleaning up my diet and tracking my intake is what allowed me to lose the weight. Darebee (and a few other programs) and a ton of running allowed me to look really good as the weight came off but this is a journey so things happen slowly and as I look back I can see the change but if I just look from the beginning of one program to the end I may not notice a thing.

        I also think the biggest take away I have from all the Darebee work is the mobility in my back. I used to worry about my back slipping out of alignment about twice a year and I would be stuck in bed for a few days. I haven't had an issue since I started Darebee. Partly because in the beginning I was careful but now because my back is 3-4 times more flexible and twice as strong.

        Pictures may be nice but I think a lot of people are more here for the long term healthy changes and just never stop to take a picture. There are a few pictures mixed in with people's check in threads but very few before and afters.

          acarpenter89 ... while pictures can reveal more about your progress than a bunch of numbers on a scale, measurements from a tape measure are even more telling. We, here, are typically more interested in progress than in appearance. Some of us are very concerned about how we look. Most are not. Sure ... I want to "look good" - allow me my conceit - but I'm not going for showing a 6-pack or massive pecs, or any other muscle group that requires massive and continuous upkeep.
          I'm 71 .... NOBODY CARES any more.
          But ... "looking good"? I can do that.

            Though I believe I am fit, and get some positive attention, I wouldn't traumatize you all with pictures of me .

            Even if I looked like some kind of fitness model, I think it would just make me laugh to see myself posed in some way . I simply can't do it without cracking up.

            So many fitness sites are discouraging simply because every Adonais and ultra-ripped Valkyrie is already up there. It's disheartening if you are just beginning or resuming the fitness journey. I'd rather just post silly pictures of my cat.

              Pics of cats are always welcome. And dogs. And racoons And and ... well, you get my meaning!

                When I joined initially, I was taking pictures before and after each program to try and "track" my progress... but it didn't last very long. To really accurately do it is very tedious - you want to try and recreate the lighting and posing as closely as possible, you should be eating as similarly as possible, etc. Plus, as others have mentioned, there are too many variables to say definitively "Oh, THIS program definitely resulted in THIS change."

                I just look at the cumulative effect... I feel better, look better, move more efficiently, my weight is where I want it to be... so all the changes are there that I'm looking for, and I'm just not a skilled enough photographer to capture all that in a before-and-after comparison.

                  Since you've done all of them, I bet the results are good!

                    I need to have the right lighting, clean up the bathroom, just finish a workout, probably an arms workout, and feel good. Too much to have go right to make that a possibility.
