Mini-Goals - Family Photos that I actually LIKE!

I absolutely hate my wedding pictures from five years ago because of my size. We've had several family photo shoots since our 2.5 year old was born (followed by his 9 month old sister) but I've never been able to bring myself to actually order prints and display them in our home. It's never helped that my husband is tall and actually UNDER weight... so standing next to him in photos always made me feel even bigger in comparison.

Well two weeks ago we had family photos taken at the beach and I'm actually HAPPY with how they turned out! I'm not to my goal weight yet, but it feels good to finally feel more comfortable in my skin and to FINALLY have photos that I'm proud to hang up!

Warning... photo overload. :carrot:

Oh and the jeans I'm wearing are size 4 Abercrombie jeans that I wore during a brief thin period of my life at age 19 when my husband and I first started dating (I'm now 27) so that made the shoot that much sweeter. :D

Thank you all! It feels great to finally feel comfortable (most of the time) in my own skin. I'm ready to lose these last few pounds though... I've been hanging at the same weight since the end of June!

you look absolutely wonderful!!! Way to go! :)

You're right...your husband is thin-- mine is the same way. He gained more weight than I did when I was pregnant (I got reeeeeeeally sick and actually lost close to 20lbs), but he lost about 20lbs in about 2 months just by not eating as much at lunch...grrr...

I LOVE that top!!! Where did you get it? It's so adorable :)

Thank you all! I've had a rough week and haven't been able to get back on track. Reading all of your comments make me feel so good and are motivating me to get with the program.

You're right...your husband is thin-- mine is the same way. He gained more weight than I did when I was pregnant (I got reeeeeeeally sick and actually lost close to 20lbs), but he lost about 20lbs in about 2 months just by not eating as much at lunch...grrr...

My husband can't gain weight... He's actually unintentionally lost weight in the last couple of months. He's almost 6ft tall and weighs 125! When I was pregnant with our babies, the two of us standing side by side was quite an odd sight! lol

My top is from New York and Company. It went on sale shortly after, so I'm not sure if it's still on the shelves (this was a couple of months ago). :)
