    Hey there neighbor! You look great! There is a huge difference in your two photos! You don't need to hide from the camera anymore. You really look AWESOME!

    I really see a difference. You are doing a great job! I hate getting pictures taken too, but what you said about memories makes a lot of sense.

    Friend- You are looking great! You've lost a lot of weight
    Me- Sigh... I'm still a fattie, I have a long way to go

    We can't see it when we're losing it, and we can't take compliments about it... it's as though if we acknowledge it, it will all go away, or we really have to acknowledge how big we were when we started. I wish I could deal with it better. I'm sure when I get close to my goal I'll be a diva about it though LOL!!!
    Yes...that is exactly how i feel. I do feel as if i will wake up and BAM the weight is back or the pills will just stop working. When I get compliments, I only think about how much more i need to lose. I am going to get away from this destructive way of thinking. It was really hard to post the picks of me but I think it is imperative for me to finally "show" what I have been hiding and I think this forum is such a safe and supportive place to share especially when it comes down to body image.

    It does stink when the person putting in the work is last on to see the fruits of their labor. Please change your perception to not look at you as you were, but see who you have become. You are beautiful!!!!!!!!!You may hate the camera, but the camera does not hate you. I can see the the difference in those pictures.

    I can totally tell. You lost the tire, that's why you aren't feeling it in your clothes as much because what you look like you lost the quickest is right above your waistline. Also, look at your arms, you can't measure that by clothing cuz us fat chicks don't wear long sleeves unless its 40 below!!

    Keep it up, you look amazing.
    Wearing these white jeans today...12/28/09..but man are they TIGHT!!

    PS ....get to exercising lady!!!!
    Maybe I should have taken my measurements when i first started, then maybe I could see it then. I guess I can't really tell because I am still wearing the same size; although it is getting looser. I know I am losing weight, I just thought at losing 30 pounds that i would be in need of buying smaller clothes. I'm not discouraged though.

    <sigh> I will get to exercising, at least I say that everynight, but i know if i don't i will really saggy....thank you for the encouragement....

    It is pretty freaking hilarious. You should see how quickly this big girl can move if someone other than myself pulls out a camera...I can move like superman without spilling my beer, lol

    Default I hate pictures

    I REALLY hate pictures. I will knock over small children and the elderly to get away from the line of fire. So most of the pictures of me have my hand in front of the lens or me in some twisted postion trying to get away. Last year, our family lost a very young member of the family and i was looking for pictures of her and I. Needless to say, there were none. For 6 years, I had not taken a single picture with her; although, I took hundreds of her.
    Recently, we have been traveling a lot and I don't want to only have memories in my head. I want to have pictures of me there, because sometimes the memories get lost in my head.
    Well, i decided to get over my hatred and my first step is to put my most recent and worst picture of me at my highest weight (250ish) out there for everyone to see. The first picture was taken at the Georgia Renaissance Festival in April. The second picture is me, today at 220, in my living room.
    I have lost 30 pounds but I can't see it. My clothes fit better....way better. My husband and family see it, but to me, the most important person that it should matter to, I can't see it. I have been low carbin it and I have been drinking oceans of water. However, i haven't started exercising...I do get exercise at work by moving boxes filled with textbooks and they are very heavy, probably around 40-50 lbs. a box.
    Also, I want to say that everyone here has been such a tremendous inspiration. I get motivated everytime is visit the forum. Thank you all....

    Oh well, I know am ramblin' on...here are the pictures:
