Hi All,:feedtroll:
well I have bit the bullet and posted photos of me in my album.
They really should come with a warning, the before don't make pretty viewing at all, really I look like a bouncer ready to thump someone. Remember these are of a woman who refused to be in any photos, if she could so help it, so no smiles, no poses, just 100% me as I was. There was no photo shop on these, it is all real stomach, all 59 inches of it.
It's a kind of therapy to post them, a showing yourself to the world, warts and all and a determination never to repeat them.
My 7 year old takes all my photos and he loves seeing the changes in them, children forget so quickly that he hardly recognises the bigger me anymore.
Let them be an incentive to anyone who is struggling and a deterrent to those who feel they can't continue and are hitting the biscuit barrel.
The positive is that although I am not yet at the weight and fitness level I wish to be, I am now able to post some photos I am not totally ashamed of.
Take care.
Doirin
Take care.

Wowowowowowow! Absolutely amazing Doirin! You look beautiful, sooooooo young and fresh! Your happiness and confidence in shining from within. It's so great to see.

I don't think your before pictures were horrible at all. I thought you were lovely but very sad and lost looking. It is amazing how weight can drag us down and make us look and feel old. The difference in you is outstanding.

Thank you so much for sharing. I got my Daughter to take my first picture. I am cameraphobic. I will get her to take one every month and then post when I reach goal. I have yet to look at the picture as it hurts too much. Like you I stood there as if it was a duty, not posing, not enjoying, cringing inside.

Gorgeous Doirin, you're a total and utter inspiration.

Noooooooooooo don't cry! You'll start me off and I put mascara on today as I was being weighed!

I hope they're tears of joy! Oops nose running, too late, I'm off!

I mean every single word and if anyone on this earth deserves happiness it is you. You're one of life's gems.

I know what it's liek to post your 'before' pictures- like you I waited til I got to near goal before I posted mine! It was far too scary to show my LT friends what I was like before, I was so ashamed of how big I'd let myself get. all the positive comments I received (from yourself as well!) made it worthwhile, and made me determined to get to my final target- however long it takes!
You look 10yrs younger, and your children are understandably proud- I'd love your man off RTE to do a life estimation guess for you then & now (can't remember the name of the programme- is it 'how long will you live' or something like that?)- I'd say you've added at LEAST 20yrs to your life now!!

Absolutely brilliant Doirin! You started a week on LT before I did, yet stuck to it all the way through, even through holidays. The Doirin in the photo is smiling and standing tall, as you should be- a role model for anyone who wants to change their life around. I wish you the bestest luck in the whole world for refeed and your new plan to reach your desired weight, and i think its fantastic you are now wanting to incorporate some exercise into your lifestyle. Thank you for all your kind comments on here, and dont be a stranger. xx
