nobody has to know that those aren't your eyes.
i agree, take that picture as a step in the right direction. it definitely seems like you already are (-25 pounds!!!!!), but just keep that as motivation that at one time that was you, and you never want to look like that again.
my brother's roommate (who is quite fit now), has a picture on his fridge of him and his brother. i asked my brother who those guys were and he said that is his roommate. i was shocked that that 250-300 lb person was my brother's roommate at one time.
maybe put that picture up and eventually, you'll have people guessing who that person on the fridge is (you're already on your way).
