So I was searching my computer for an old photo to share w/ someone and I happened across one of me and my bestfriend from the old days where we were going out clubbing every weekend. I could not believe I was looking at the same person. Literally, I feel like a completely different person than the woman shown in that photo.

Maybe there's another thread around here like this...if so, mods please feel free to merge. But I'm going to share my embarrassing photo and hope that it will encourage others to post theirs up as a reminder of how far they've come.

So without further ado...

That's some amazing transformation, Natasha! :bravo:

I'd carry that picture with me and look at it every time I needed a good dose of motivation! ;)

Natasha, congrats! You've come a long way :)

Here's my fat girl pic. It's my reminder of why I shouldn't eat donuts and hash browns for breakfast...LOL. I am on the left.

This is great!!! I'm really looking at the pictures and am like well where are they? I seriously can't tell, it's like different people!
I on the other hand could never participate in such things because all of my pics are literally from the neck up LOL.
You guys look great, keep up the great work.

Amazing, Natasha and grneyedmustang! Yep, it's a definite reason not to eat hash browns and donuts for breakfast!

Here are my Driver's License mugshots-from 2007 and 2010.

I've lost at least 15 more pounds since my latest DL. It's funny, I don't ever wear makeup other than lipstick and my complexion is so different now.

Wow, InsideMe, you look amazing!!! I tell ya, looking at the picture I posted I just can't believe I ever thought "oh, I'm not THAT fat"...but, like you said, I'm using this picture for motivation to NEVER go back to that.

OMG I swear I suffered from Fatorexia. When that pic was taken I was at a dance with some friends and thought I looked super hot until I saw the pictures. They tagged me on FB and I was TOTALLY MORTIFIED!!!! At first I was like "Oh who's the fat chick.....OMG THAT'S ME! LOL"

I'm trying to see the "truth" now and still not get caught up in my fatorexia which is why I'm taking tons of pics to see the real me, naked and all....cause the rolls on the camera don't lie girl! LOL It's easy for me to say....wheww ok I'm not like that anymore I'm so much better, yeah true but I can still do better you know?

Usually, I can figure out this technology stuff. Today? Epic fail.

I decided to resurrect this thread with the subtitle - why I stay mostly on plan even through holidays.
I have pictures like this all over the place to remind me what happens when I stop making good food choices :eek:
