I swear, every time I think I'm looking good, I see a recent picture of myself and get sooo discouraged. I was going through pics on Michael's phone last night and there was a bunch that he had taken of me from last weekend.
I was also looking at some pictures of me from past years and realized that even when before I had Logan, I've never looked toned. Not even a little bit. In fact, I don't think I looked a whole lot better at 125-135 lbs untoned than I do now at 145.
Anyways...that's my rant for the day. Feeling kind of put-off by my body today, I guess. Sorry for being so whiny.
I know what you mean...I've lost 10 lbs and that's got me feeling better about myself BUT...I think I'll stay out of pics for a while longer. I know that I still have a ways to go and a photo would really let me know that!
I totally understand. My SIL was in town and took some pics of me recently and I about PUKED! It sucks when you're feeling good about your weight loss and getting a new sense of self and then you see a picture and it knocks you right back down. I feel your pain girl!
Right there with ya babe... I dare not get my picture take for fear of looking disgusting... it's one thing me taking my weekly pics.. but it's another thing getting your picture taken when you least expect it.
I hide behind my children Or avoid the camera entirely.
Its sad because my children will not have many pictures of me. I try to but my vanity aside and get in pictures with them because they love me now matter what I look like and if something bad ever happened I would want them to have memories of me.

Nobody looks good when they get their pictures taken unexpected! Have you noticed that even the stars in Hollywood don't look good when they are walking around in sweats with starbucks cups in their hands with their hair in ponytails?
don't get sad about it, we all go thru it. Last night i am looking at myself like UGH, although i am smaller and clothes are gettin baggy. Just use it as motivation and fuel to continue going towards your goal. You are doing the right things and you will soon see a whole new you. Just remember we will never be perfect, so we have to be happy regardless. I think if we stray from the happiness we will never like what we see.
