  • Pick up a 10 lb bag of flour or sugar and get a visual of that being fat. Now picture that all back on you. Now doesn't that make you feel good about what you have accomplished? Happiness does not come in any certain shape, weight, or package. It comes from within. Work on changing your mind set about your self image at any weight, style or make-up. I can guarantee you that even when you reach your goal weight there will be something you will not be happy with if you continue with a negative self image of your self. Be proud for what you have accomplished and don't have such a critical eye when it comes t yourself and remember pictures always make you look heavier.

  • Everyone looks heavier in photos. Be proud of your weight loss and continue with what you are doing to lose more. Pat yourself on the back for getting this far.

  • We are our own worst judge! Dont be so hard on yourself. Others will cherish those pics even if you dont care for them- b/c they are pics of YOU! Congrats on the weight loss & the new look.

  • Cameras suck. I could take 100 pictures of myself and like maybe 1 of them. You should be proud of yourself hun! If you like what you see in the mirror, that's all that matters - because that's what other people see too! Cameras distort things and are not an accurate representation of weight.

  • camera's can make you feel like you added weight.. and a shorter cut can do the same..

    Be sure to style it properly to give you a thinner look. (sometimes a little volume and shrink a figure).

    ANd well, make up can always be washed off and redone.

    dont let it discourage you though. you lost 10 lbs, so be proud :)
