    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! :sigh:

    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.

    It wouldnt be healthy for me to being my wedding weight again. I'm just looking to get into the healthy range to begin with.

    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!

    My smallest size as an adult was size 14/12 at 12-11.5 stone. I'm aiming for 10.10lbs as I would love to be a 12 :) x

    Currently 14st 13.7lbs

    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.
