    hey everyone, i on day 3 and seen on other posts that ppl have taken photos of themselves to see there weigh loss as they go, i thought this was i good idea til i went and done it!

    I hate getting my pic taken anyway cos i not happy with the way i look in general. But i have been really positive and buzzing that i am doing this and changing my life finally, but now i just seen the pics i look alot bigger than i thought i did.

    My bf says i don't look that bad but this has just knocked me for six now i feeling really low and dissapointed with myself for getting this way.... I just want to eat something. I WONT THOUGH dont worry but now i just feel like crap.

    how can i snap out of this, i know it is going to happen i just wish it was done already.... :(:(

    dont be disheartened samantha.
    we are often shocked when we see pictures of ourselves. the camera is rarely flattering.
    take comfort and pride in the fact that u are no longer the woman in the photo even if u JUST took it, u are changing every minute of the day and night, an ounce here, a centimetre loss there, its all changing and that is the last time u will take a picture of u at that exact size and weight..... u can do this, the picture isnt there to punish u, use it as an inspirational tool.
    when u feel low and are struggling, look at it and imagine those lumps and bumps not being there. as time goes on (quicker than u think) take more pictures and feel ur pride soar as u see the comparisons.
    gl hun,
    u CAN do this.:)

    Ah I know just how you feel, photos are awful when you're unhappy with your size. You need to use the shock you felt when you saw it in a positive way, you want your next set of photos to be a pleasant experience, not a terrible reality check!
    I got my husband to take my 'before' photos when I was on Day 1 of LT, I am nearly halfway through my weight loss and I haven't even looked at them yet! Too much of a chicken lol.

    Don't worry, you'll be at target before you know it, then you will never fear a camera again, because you're going to look fantastic! :D

    My daughter and I took photos of each other the day before we started. Mine was horrible. I've always hated having my picture taken. I may take some "in-between" ones though, just - as Cheryl says - for inspiration.

    my OH took some before photos, and they don't look half as bad as the casual snap shots taken when I was smaller! LOL! The one I found yesterday was really mortifying cos I really didn't think I was that much bigger than my sil at that time. In fact she had complained that she had gained weight and nothing fit her. So in my oblivian I gave her a couple of pairs of my cropped trousers. They were too big for her.......

    I know exactly how you feel hun and it can be really distressing. I turned it on its head and rather than allowing it to make me feel down I used it to motivate myself to continue. Yes the picture was awful but I was in control and doing something about it, use it as tool to help you succeed!!
