Hi guys.

Feel free to join in. Iv found a photo that i LOVE of myself, and i want to get back there. So im posting it here, so that its out in the open.. for everyone to see.. Makes it feel more real. Iv never had a photo that inspired me too keep going, not really.. but then i found this one, its nothing special.. but i can see the difference between me now, and the 8lbs i have to get back to the weight i was in this photo.. and its whats keeping me going everytime i think 'im quite happy the way i am, i dont think i'l bother' Because the fact is, whilst im okay with how i look now, i am far happy with myself with that extra 8lbs off.


so here are my photos
me and joe.jpg

My first and only size 8 LBD
I want to be back there by Xmas, I know its dooable.. but i just have to DO IT.

So im gunna (in the words of ellebear) POW POW POW those lbs.


So get em out. I wanna see your motivation. I dont care whether the picture was 20 years ago, or 2 months ago. Im sure we all have a photo that we quite like of ourselves.. and if we dont, maybe you might find one to help you along alittle x

WOW. You look really goodxx

I really want to feel as though i am not the biggest person everywhere that i go.. Simple.
Of course i want nice clothes and to be fitter etc. but i really hate being the fattest person out of my friends, my job, my family - everywhere x

You just motivated me Fern :) defo need to POW POW POW - Ellebear, I will be using your phrase from now on to keep me upbeat and motivated!

There's two photos I look at when I'm feeling down. One pre-SW and one during SW. Not fantastic photos of me so hide your eyes, but that's what I use to motivate myself :)

The first one is when I was on holiday with the girls in Zante in 2007. I was the biggest one there and looking back it makes me shudder. I even met my now ex bf there...can you believe he found THAT attractive?!

The second one was taken on a night out this year. I look horrendous but I looked quite skinny that night and felt great :) and it was the first time my friends commented on my weight loss :)

Great thread Fern :) I'm now sitting here smiling feeling the best I have felt all night. Thanks. And good luck losing that pesky extra 8lbs, you can defo do it :) xx

Brilliant photos girls!!
Georgiegirl.. i cant believe the change in you. you look beautiful.. and you sarah!

Northan lass, you can do it!!! ((hugs))

After being at T for so long it feels very difficult continueing to feel motiavted and keep going, esp as i am at my orginal target weight, and i keep using it as an excuse not to get back down to the revised target i gave myself.. even though i know im far happier that little bit lighter.

I want to do this, so i just have to keep reminding myself why.. and i figure, if i put it out there in the open.. itl continue to remind me.

Thanks for joining in girls.x
