Confession time. Two days ago, in my "The Perfect Place for a Fall Picnic" post, I didn't post a photo of us eating at the picnic table because I was mad that I looked fat in the photo. I mean, I know I'm still overweight, but darn it, I've lost 45 plus pounds now and I should start looking a little LESS fat, right?!
Then I remembered THE PHOTO. The photo that spurred me into taking action about my weight. It was taken on Mother's Day. Usually on Mother's Day, I have Jay take a few photos of me and the kids in a nice setting, for posterity's sake. But this last Mother's Day, I just felt too ugly to be a part of those kind of pictures. I didn't tell my kids or Jay that I was feeling that way, I just had Jay take a photo of us at the dinner table with the beautiful dinner they had made me.
BIG MISTAKE! It was a terrible angle! A side shot of me sitting down...ugh! It's the exact same angle that is in the picnic photo. Which got me thinking. Would I be able to tell a difference in my weights between the two photos? I compared the two, and felt better...and worse. I felt better because I could definitely tell a difference. I felt worse because I couldn't believe how big I had let myself become.
It is with extreme embarrassment that I'm posting these photos today. Maybe it will help someone who is struggling with THEIR weight.

I started my quest on May 30th. It is now October 31st. Please tell me you can see a difference!
