    You need to look at the bright side. You have taken the first step to changing your life! I was the same way when I first saw myself in photos and realize that I was overweight. I lived in denial for 2 years. Once I finally got past that point I was convinced to make a change. You can do this! You WILL do this! You are going to be so proud of yourself!! ((((((HUGS))))))

That takes courage!

    I can honestly tell you when I showed my friends and co-workers before/after pics of me when I lost the 110 pounds ALL of them told me, "I swear I don't ever remember you looking like that." As has already been said, your body is a vessel. Even this time around losing the weight, my best friend is a guy and when I showed him the pics of me from st. patty's day, because he was asking me why I felt the need to lose weight. He said, "I swear I never viewed you as that heavy, I guess when I see you I've always seen the personality."

    So why do I tell you this? Because that pic is just one part of what makes you you. Don't worry that when people see you, that's what they see. When people see you, they see your warmth, your humor, how your care for your children, and it's a total package. Let's be honest we've all seen some skinny b i t c h es who are just plain ugly on the inside. No amount of diet can change that! Just keep that in mind.
    Ya I can relate there. Me and husband were talking about my weight the other day. I told him I wanted to lose 80 pounds, and he thought I would be to small if I lost that much. I said Ryan, how much do you think I weigh. He said 215. I was like, I wish, try way higher. So we battled back and fourth, and when I finally gave up and told him 260, he was shocked. He said he never would have thought I weighed that much. Minus the gut, I havent really gained anywhere else. My legs are still about the same, my arms still the same, maybe a lil more flabby, but not to much.lol. So I know what you mean, and LMAO I have seen plenty of skinny bitc**s like that. LOL

    Thanks so much guys. I do feel better. I mean, I should, I am trying, so thats what really counts. I do hope in a month, I will be able to post another pic and not be as ashamed. LOL. Im sure it still wont look pretty, but should look better and that will make me happier. But I am trying, so I am gonna just keep doing what I am doing. And when ever I feel a bad day coming I am gonna pull that pic up and look at it. lol.
    Im am glad to hear all of your stories as well though. lol. Makes me feel like I can do this with all of you behind me. lol. To bad someone didnt live near me, I would kill for a work out buddy. i go to the local gym, and its a bunch of skinny girls there. UGH. Not that they are mean or anything like that, just not someone I want to work out with. LOL.

    Yes we have all been there. I stopped looking in the mirror for a good while and I continued to wear my maternity clothes after my daughter was born, so I had no idea how HUGE I was. It was not until I was downtown one day and passed by a mirrored window that I realized how much weight I had actually gained. To make matters worse on the train ride home, I was spilling over into the seat beside. I cried that day, and I have cried many days since. But I am not giving up.

    You can do this. I am here for you. We all are.

    BTW.... you really had me going UNTIL you posted that pic. I would give my first born and the baby too, for thighs like yours.

Trust me, my pics look alot like yours! I haven't gotten them on here yet but dang they are scary. I know how you feel when it comes to not taking pics or looking at pics. I am the same way.

    Well, we've all been there. All I can say is...use it to your advantage. A lot of people use their "before" pics to help keep them motivated. Good luck to you and don't be too hard on yourself.

    Don't beat yourself up. By next month when you take another pic, you'll be able to see the difference. I know how you feel about the pics though, I only leave mine on here for so long then I can't stand to look at them anymore. You're on your way to a brand new you!!

    Hi Cash!

    Turn that frown upside down! You are taking control of your life one pound at a time. You want to change for the better and you are. So applaud yourself for that. I've learned that the caring people on this forum don't judge. Everyone is comfortable enough to share simply because we all have the same goals in mind. On my wedding day I was 125lbs and at my highest I was 215lbs! If you look closely at the numbers, I swear at some point in my life I became severely dyslexic! LOL! This is your grey shorts & shirt before pic. Keep in mind that you are working towards that sexy grey 2-piece bikini after pic!! Kisses & Hugs!

    Hey, bite that cute little boy sitting on the bed for me! I just wanna nibble on those juicy infant legs of he's!! My son is 6months and just as juicy. We should schedule a wrestling match for them. Ha! Ha!

    Keep your head up!

    Oh Honey, this is just the beginning. This is as bad as it gets....really....look at you, you have already lost 6 pounds!!! That is awesome. I started Phen on the 10th, a day before you, and I have only lost 2 pounds
    I was down and sad this morning.....but then I was thinking.... What am I sad about?! I am doing something about this huge thing that I call my body, I am working towards being comfortable in my own skin. So I am okay. And you should be too!

    I am not going to sit here and say "oh, it is okay..." cause I have that feeling too. But you my dear, ARE BRAVE, I haven't been able to get infront of the camera yet. I am scared of what I will see on that picture.

    So, remember, you are doing something about this feeling that you hae right now....in a few weeks...they will be gone! You should look at that picture and go....NEVER AGAIN! I hope that you will be okay and that you are over those sad feelings. Have a great day!

    Oh Hun! That's not so bad!
    *Throws tissues at you*
    You just quit crying! Your fine. Tummy said the right thing, don't get to hung up on pics. Although I understand completely, I HATE pictures. But just think, you're on your way! You know, one step at a time and all. ^__~
    First, love and accept, then change.

    Keep that picture around to motivate yourself to lose the weight!! In a couple weeks, take another one. It's what a lot of us have been doing to stay on track. Don't fret!!
