No, not at all. It’s completely up to you. You can check in without photos if you’d prefer not to take them. The reason we suggest taking them is because they’re a useful way to see the progress you’ll make. Noticing changes in your own body isn’t easy. Taking photos to track how far you’ve come is often a much better measure than the scales.
If you're worried about privacy, any photo you upload to the app will only be seen by trusted members of The Body Coach team – and only if you give them permission to see them. You can manage your photo permissions in the settings area of your app.
Remember, this plan is about more than fat loss and transformation. It’s about feeling good and the changes it makes inside.
