Before and after photos are effective ways to advertise weight loss methods.
I am not taking anything away from the achievements of these women. In viewing these three photos, though, it occurred to me that I could probably do both the before and the after photo in a 3 hour period.
For the before:
1. Pull your hair up into a do like you just woke up;
2. Wear an ugly unflattering bikini;
3. Stick your belly out as far as you can; and
4. Slump a bit.
Now scowl into the camera.
For the after:
1. Get your hair professionally styled and coloured;
2. Spray on your tan;
3. Find a beautiful bikini;
4. Suck your belly in;
5. Don't breathe; and
6. Stand up as straight as you are capable of standing.
