    Look, girls. Im being serious now. You know Ive done a photo diary, yeah? Well we all like to see before and afters and even though we may hate ourselves now, we can look forward to loving ourselves in the coming weeks by enjoying seeing pictures of that fat dripping away.

    I encourage you to take weekly pics. It might not seem like a glam fashion shoot but believe me, when I look back at what I have done in three weeks, it really does create a rewarding feeling. I emailed my mum my latest pictures and she was like "whoa"! Next time I see her will be xmas eve and ill be a lot slimmer then as well.

    If you need me to crop and make you a picture board like the one I use, you can email me your pics and Ill do it for you. I will chop your head off in the picture (I do it for me, it HELPS!).

    Im discreet and im serious when I say "It really does make you feel good".

    hmm I have never done the pic thing specifically for weightloss cos there are always photos being taken with friends etc but I like the idea of taking a pic of something I want to be able to wear but which is ridiculously tight at the moment and then seeing the progress as I slim down... however, as I have just moved house, finding the dress in question may take time! Tonight's mission - dress hunt!

    Oh God! Well that's a horrible experience seeing those pics! No "hiding" from yourself or fooling yourself with that staring you in the face! Talk about remotivating me!!! My ass will be in that gym for 2 hours a day minimum from now on!

    Hi Rumbly, oh my goodness! I absolutely love your profile picture! :D

    If you don't mind, I will send you a few photos in a couple of weeks, as I haven't actually taken any recently. That will definitley motivate me to get my butt in gear.
    How are you doing otherwise, Hon?
    Sorry I haven't been around for a while, but work has been horrendous. Will catch up with your diary soon. Gotta get back to work. Chat later. x:)

    I couldn't agree more with you Kirsty. I have been taking my photographs every four weeks (now monthly) since week 4. I really wish I had taken then at day 1 but the difference from week 4 until now is :eek:. They really do give you a boost in those low moments and are such a great way of showing what you have achieved. I think the longer you are on the diet you can sometimes forget what you used to look like and the pics are a reminder of how far you have come. It's my 7 month anniversary on Monday so I'll get my Daughter to take my pics again, and inspired by you I'll be brave and post them when I weigh in next week.

    Would it be an idea to keep them in this thread and we can just repost each time? Save the signatures getting huge?

    OK I found the dress I want to wear - I won't get into it for xmas but by the summer I should. I will take pics every month. The dress looks awful at the moment. It's stretchy and as I am so wide, it has stretched out but shrunk up, if you know what I mean so what should be below the knee is well above it.
    ho hum.... perseverance!
