DO you know what I've noticed about the 'before' & 'after' pics on here...?

    IrishMum A little of everything!

    In the before ones- people are generally dressed baggily/frumpily, wearing little/no make-up with their hair fairly neglected. They are posed with their hands across their bodies, or behind 'props' (furniture/people etc.).

    In the after ones- people are groomed beautifully- dressed in fitted clothes, their make-up/hair done, and with their hands on their hips!

    It's amazing what losing weight has done for their self-confidence. That alone should be a motivating lesson!:D

    I do the same!!!! and I'm always telling people I don't like photos... yet I've a few hundreds from when I was slim... all of a sudden, the weight crept up and I just don't want a reminder of what I really look like...

    Me too! I love looking at my photo's from when I was slim and I have so many of them. Since I put weight on I don't like to be in photos and if I am I make sure it is neck upwards!!

    I always love how much people change in before and afters - some look like completely different people! They're so inspiring!

    I know what you mean

    I can relate to that although I don't have kids. I had terrible trouble trying to find some "before" pics.
    Had to ask a friend and she said " are you sure you want to see them?" now I know why and I'm enjoying having my picture taken again.
    I love looking at people's photos too.
    Good luck ladies.
