Default Are you ever unhappy with your progress pics?

I've taken a progress picture last weekend, I could get comfortably in a skirt that was so tight I couldn't wear it, so I also took a picture and I was soooo happy!
But as soon as I saw the picture there was like a voice in my head saying '****, don't you see how fat you are?? You're really horrible!'
I don't have a starting picture to compare, but feel a little down that I was happy but then I hate my pictures.

Somehow I wonder one day I'll be 150-ish and still unhappy with myself.
It's sounds logically ridiculous, but that's it.

Rainy: pictures often don't do us justice. the lighting can make all the difference sometimes. Pictures also flatten everything out and distort the image to some degree.
Keep that pic you have and use it to compare your future progress.

It could be that the skirt is unflattering too? I know if i wear skinny jeans or tights, i look huge in the butt and hips, but boot leg, or straight leg, or just something that fits better to my shape makes me look proportioned better and sleeker.
my advise: buy a new skirt!!!!!

Don't stress yourself. Some people just aren't very photogenic. I am one of those people so I know how you feel. I know people that are gorgeous but you would never know by their pics. It's weird.

Yes I have photos from before I lost weight though I was always hiding behind my children on them. Now even though I've lost 51 pounds I just can't see enough difference in the before and after photos. I've got better photos now though to compare to later so hopefully I will see bigger changes soon.

I wish we weren't so hard on ourselves. I nitpick myself too and am trying hard to get out of that mode to some degree. I like to remember how far I have come and I like to look at cholesterol levels, blood pressure, etc. to feel good even on my worst days. I like to run to remind myself how good that feels too. I also keep my jeans I was wearing last spring and put them on for comparison.
