    ....I decided to go for a new shorter cut! I've always wanted my hair shorter, but wouldn't have the sides cut up from chin level whilst I had a huge double chin and you couldn't actually see my jawline for the fat! But I've been thinking about chopping it all week and made an appointment for today before I bottled out!

    Photos in my album if you are interested in having a peek! :)

    Thanks Em and Ella! It's funny, I would never even look at a pic of myself pre LL, never mind post them on a forum! Still not happy and still feel uneasy looking at pics of me, but know that it will get better over the next few months!

    Can't believe I was brave enough to go for the chop still! ;-)

    Hi Poppy,
    You look great, lovely haircut, happy face and nice chin too.

    Thanks Poppy

    My OH took the photos tonight.
    I was clearing out my wardrobe and found the 1 pair of trousers and tried them on for a laugh, but actually felt like crying. I can't believe I was ever that size.Thank God it didn't feel so bad at the time.
    It was that type of photo that inspired me when I started.

    Yikes, sorry for finding it hilarious - never even occured to me that it could have been a difficult moment!

    All I can say is that you have done fabulously, fabulously well! What an inspiration to people coming here and wondering if LL will work for them - going by your example, then the answer is a big, fat YES!

    Loving the new 'do Poppy, really suits you! :)

    SB, wow, your avatar picture is so amazing!
    I can understand why that could have been a hard moment, but I really hope you were able to come away from trying them on feeling immensely proud of what you have achieved, you certainly deserve to :)

    Thanks so much for the lovely compliments and rep comments everyone and for taking the time to post! I have to say that it doesn't actually look quite like that this morning and was sticking up all over the place this morning!! I looked like something in that film - is it Something About Mary?!

    BL, I had long hair like yours until about two years' ago, then had a bob cut. I'd panic in the hairdressers every time in case she cut it up to short at the sides as I had the most horrendous double chin, but I was definitely fooling myself as it wasn't actually hiding anything anyway!

    I've just got to try and do it myself for work tomorrow and hoping it won't just stick up at all angles, or I'm calling in sick!! ;-)

    Thanks H! I still can't work out from looking at your avatar where you've got weight to lose - you must just have a huge bum as there's no fat on your face!! ;-) LMAO
