    Looking at old skinny photos of yourself - yay or nay?

    Does it serves as a motivation for you?

    I felt like I was really lacking some focus this eve, so I thought I would look at 'skinny' photos of me - about 8 years ago I was 13-14 stone.

    All it has done is mega depressed me! haha and looking at fatty photos does too!

    I think I may have to make myself google puppies to cheer me up!

    Hi,

    Skinny fotos? Well I was never skinny but did weight a lot less a few years ago. I did it with tons of exercise and calorie counting. When I think about how much I did and were I am now, it makes me want to get up and walk or at least take the stairs (just a little bit at a time). Don't stop!! For today I didn't go over my calorie (by much) so tomorrow I am going to try to be on target!!!

    I dont have a choice - my wedding pictures are hanging on my living room walls. I was much skinnier then, almost half the person I am now. I dont want to get that skinny again, i weighed and a half stone the day of my wedding!

    O in that case...painful.
    My pictures are hidden in a closet. I only accidentally saw some the other day.
    Well you could move the wedding pics to a less visited area of your house and put up new pics with you and the hubby (just a thought)

    Another wedding picture motivation person here. I was just above my goal weight on my wedding day and I did feel good to be honest. I'm not unhappy now but I do want to get back to that point again.
    Starting Weight = 10st 11lbs at 1/1/13
    Weight aim = 9st

    Wow feel your pain - constantly having to see them.

    That would kill me! I feel so angry and disappointed with myself when I look back

    It does both. I look back at pics of me in size 6 shorts and little tops and get seriously motivated to look like that again. I vow to not eat another bar of chocolate till I lose at least 4 stone and to go for a run every morning. Then, the more pics I look at, the worse I feel about myself, so I break out the biscuits. Vicious circle. I tend to avoid old pictures, especially old pics with the boyfriend, wherever possible. I just end up feeling sorry for myself!



    After two failed starts in 2012, with less than a 7lb loss in total, I'm ready to get my body back in 2013.

    Following the Secret Diet Drops plan since June 2013, and loving it!
    Took a 3 week break from dieting to go on holiday, ready to start losing again now

    March 25th 2013 - 13st 0lb
    June 2013 - 11st 9lb
    July 2013 - 11st 4lb
    August 2013 - 11st 3lb

    It does give me motivation but at the same time makes me feel quite depressed, mainly because I'm older now lol. I've wasted a lot of my late teens and mid 20's not being confident in my looks from being overweight. I've been overweight more during my 20's than I have slim.
