I haven't wanted my picture taken the last few years either! I saw a picture of myself at my oldest granddaughter's high school graduation the other day. That was 2 years ago & I couldn't believe I was THAT big!! I tried to ignore it for along time. Then, about a year ago, I decided to do something about it after christmas. I am curious about what pictures of me will look like this year. I'll try not to hide this year!

Yam-Yam, I've always looked like my rear end moved out of my pants....no matter what size. But, before I bought smaller pants, I got a look of my back side and oh brother!! Baggy is right! I like my new pants much better!

I can relate to this post right now. Well, and I've been able to relate to it for all my life. I never allow anyone to take my picture anymore. I just hate seeing myself. My husband and I are taking a road trip tomorrow to a very scenic area, and I'm planning to take pictures of the scenery and not much else. I just don't want to be in those pictures.

Oh my. At my grand daughter's graduation I saw a picture of me wearing them and those baggy white pants made me look like I have huge hips (and kind of like someone wearing a big diaper under her pants!) Needless to say I gave them away immediately after seeing that picture.



I am actually crying after reading this...

You should send that in to Reader's Digest or something like that...word for word... really funny...

Sorry Yam-Yam I can't stop..

OMGosh! I never, ever want to look at that photo again! I seriously deleted it from the album DD sent me. I know she has it somewhere, but hopefully she will always be too busy to ever look at it again.

I know what you mean! After years of draping myself in lots of fabric to "hide" I almost don't know what to put on anymore. I always had a shape, pretty hourglass (but more like 90 minutes-LOL) but it really depends where fabric ends, types, flow, quality, patterns.... I have a girlfriend from high school whose daughter has a high quality consignment shop with upscale lightly worn clothing and I usually have her tell me what she thinks. So far since losing weight that's about the only place I have bought clothes! SKEERED!!!!! That and my DD saying, "just put it down and walk away, momma!" LOL cuz I always try to dress like an old lady!

I think I try to dress too young, lol! I don't care. When I get small enough to wear some cute little jeans with the pockets on back with the flaps that button, I'm going to wear the hell out of them!

I dress totally inappropriately and I intend to continue that way. I like bling and short skirts and low necklines and I like how they make me feel. Move over Dolly Parton.

I KNOW, I KNOW...C'Marie...Before losing my weight I was getting a little too "comfy" in my dressing, and my youngest son was telling me some of my things looked "like an old woman."

Now I worry I have gone too far the other way with skinny jeans and HIGH heels....4" and even a pair of 5"!!!

Kissa, they do make me feel awesome though! I really thought my high-heel-wearing-days were over!!! How I love getting all gussied up now!!!...AND....my hubby...he do love me high-heels!!!

Librarygirl, I could use some of the jeans with the flaps on back with buttons...cause I don't have much left back there. (wish I had that prob on the front!)

They would look cute as hell on you then! My 63 yo sister looks like a teenager in them, haha. That's why I need to lose quite a bit before I add pockets to my badonkadonk!

How do I view them Carly? I clicked on your 'gallery' link and it said there were no images in there. I am new on this board and still figuring things out. (And looking for a thread I can join in on without feeling like an interloper!)

this year has not been a good year for losing weight. I have been stuck at the same place for so long that I don't know if anything will budge it passed this set point. But I decided I had to get a grasp on how far I had come and celebrate keeping it off for what has been nearly two years. So I looked up a picture of my highest weight and where I am now and have posted them in my gallery if you are interested. I was stunned at the before picture as not only was I obese, but my hair, skin, everything was deplorable. It was taken at an importanat event and I thought I looked the best I could for the day. So sad.

I think I am close to being keto adapted now and look forward to trying some rotations soon. Thought I would never do anything this drastic again, but am past the LC flu and have good appetite suppression. Maybe. 2013 will be my year to finish the journey.

The two pics I see of you Cici are the one in the green blouse, and the one with you on the sofa. I can see a remarkable difference!!! You look fantastic! Are there other pictures too?

No other pictures. The green blouse is 2007 253#. The other is Christmas 2010. I was right around 200 give or take 5 pounds.

You look much younger in the 2010 picture! It's amazing how fat ages us, and how we look younger, older lol! I hope to see some big differences in how I looked when I started and closer to goal.

Thank you for sharing! I love to see before/after pictures!

Oh yes, Cici, big difference! You really do look younger now. It's hard to say from a picture, but in your more recent pics your skin looks so smooth and clear! I think our skin tells a tale about our overall health, so good for you! Glad you're taking stock of your accomplishments instead of getting too frustrated. And congrats on the appetite suppression!
