Ok, so I've lost thirty pounds. I had a friend help me take some newer pictures bit I still dont like the pictures. Dagnabbit! Some of them are blury. A couple of them were outside and my hair is blowing in funny ways.... and NO! I dont look like a super model with the fans blowing my hair in all the fun exciting ways either ha ha ha It is hard to take pictures of yourself. I have been trying to get help from my daughter but my kids schedules seem to be all over the map. Oh well, you will all have to just suffer for nmow with my picture as is. laughing laughing laughing Anybody have picture issues that they would like to share?

Thanks for the thumbs up folks but I was hoping to generate some discussion about loosing weight or pictures before and after... Anyone have anything they would like to share?

Congrats!!! Losing weight feels AWESOME!! lovestruck! hug biggrin

I lost about 25 pounds in '11 and have been pretty good at keeping it off. It showed in my pictures, maybe some of my CM picture will show it, not sure. (my newest is my profile picture) I'm aiming to lose 10 more pounds by New Years as my Pre-New Years Resolution, and hopefully 15-20 more after that. cool

BTW: Some camera tricks. If you use a digital camera, most have a self timer. When I take my pictures I like to use that option. I'll sit the camera on a desk, dresser, or something that'll be high enough, and then I sit or stand to take the pic. I'm a perfectionist so I end up taking about 20 (litterally) before I find 1 or 2 I'm happy with. laughing

Another trick is instead of the dreaded 'mirror shot' where you aim the camera at the mirror and take a snap, have a cute set-up behind you, or something bland (nothing that screams and takes the attention away from you) and just hold the camera at arms length to take a few pictures. That's how I did my profile picture. (I do have an advantage though, my camera has a front view option) rolling eyes

Congratulations, Loretta! hug


I don't have any picture issues, per se, except for the fact that I'm in them! boggled


In all seriousness, anyone who has known me since I first joined this site 3 years ago would be able to testify just how greatly my look has changed throughout the course of my weight loss.


Great job, Loretta! Now... if we could just get you to share a FB story or two... mischievous laughing

Thank You! biggrin hug

That is so awesome. I congratulate all of you for your efforts. I have struggled with my weight since the 4th grade. Up, down, up again. NOW menopause is here and it is kicking my body in all different directions. I used to get upset about it and it had kept my self esteem pretty low sometimes but I am working on not letting it define who I am. Besides, with a heart as big as mine it needs a bigger vessel. laughing I do have thyroid issues but the meds are supposed to take care of that. I do my best to eat right and I go to Curves so I don't know what else to do except accept that this is the way the good Lord made me and take comfort in knowing that He is preparing someone, somewhere who will love me regardless. Until then I really do appreciate knowing I am not alone and would welcome any encouragement for anyone who knows what it's like to struggle, and I can offer the same in return. hug

That's pretty good. Do you want to share how you did it? Did you have to give up chocolate, pizza and ice cream?
