    We went to a wedding reception last night and photos have now been posted on facebook.

    I obviously know I carry weight (hence SW!) and I currenty weigh 17st 8lb, but never really see or think how big I am until I see it in photos, if that makes sense.

    I am absolutely mortified by what I looked like last night, I look hideous and just like my mother (have vowed never to look like my mom! - in a nice way.) and I look about 50 years of age (I am 37!)

    Anyone else ever feel like this in photos?

    Thats it, this weight is coming off!!

    Hi there

    To be honest, this is exactly the kind of thing that spurred me into joining SW... I saw some pictures of myself in work, and couldn't believe that the fat girl was me!

    Don't look at them - I bet everyone else in the photos only see their own flaws - we all do.

    Take care :)

    As I've got older and larger, I hate photos of myself, and sometimes I catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror, and think, s**t, is that really me?

    I hate looking at photos of myself, but stick one on the fridge and one on the inside of the cupboard door - makes me stop reaching for the extra syns! X

    I find all my fat photos inspire me when I feel bad or lazy. I have a horrible photo of my as my screensaver on my laptop. I have even put a photo on the fridge to stop my when I feel hungry!!

    Fingers crossed they inspire you like line did ;-)

    I'm the same - I absolutely hate seeing pictures of myself.
    I can't wait for the day that someone shows me a photo that they've taken of me that I'm proud of.

    I got my partner to take some pics of me a couple of weeks ago - I wanted a decent one for my linkedin page so I got all smartened up and was doing all sorts of smart and business-like poses.

    I look absolutely nothing like the way I imagined. Suddenly, I seem really old and fat (I always seem to have been able to take a decent photo by just going at a different angle or something). It's really spurred me on!

    It was the photos taken of me at Christmas last year that made me join SW in January. I knew I had got bigger but seeing those photos horrified me. 5 months later I'm nearly 2 stone lighter and so much happier, someone took a photo of me today when I did race for life, tagged me on FB and I'm actually quite proud of it! :D
