Congratulations! What's your secret? I still am 20 pounds over my ideal body weight and it's such a pain to shed it.

Congrats!!! Losing weight feels AWESOME!!

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.

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.

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)

WOW Congratulations! 25 lbs is great! God really does want us to be healthy. You know, take care of the temple. My mom had alot of health issues and so have some of her family. I am hoping that in monitoring my wieight that I will stave off alot of those issues. So far so good. Thank you God!

I do have a digital camera. I just need to get more adept at using it. You have offered some great suggestions thanks. Unfortunately mine doesnt have a front view option but oh well, I will just roll with it...lol My photo surely does need to be updated to reflect the wonderful healthier looking me! I soooo deserve some newer pictures lol

Congratulations, Loretta!


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


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...

Victor you are handsome guy. Well at least I think so. Don't run yourself down. Thanks for the congrats. You obviously deserve congrats as well in your weight loss. Health is where its at isn't it? Darn cheese puffs or Mt Dew! Curses to them....lol Anyway, FB is just more of the great me that I am....little tidbits here and there. I'm sanguine... what can I say, I like to share...lol
