Someone Hit Me with the Ugly Stick

Well, my Hubby got a new camera last night - an early X-Mas present that he will be using to take Thanksgiving pictures today.  We were testing it out last night - I was sitting on the couch studying in one of my new pink sweaters (that I thought looked GOOD on me).  OMG - I looked absolutely HORRIBLE in all three pictures he took.  Yes, my hair was a little frazzled and my make-up was worn off from the day, but that wasn't the worst part.  The couch curls you in a way that makes you slouch a bit and the sweater was unflattering (I honestly didn't know) - and the overall effect was that I ended up looking like Jabba the Freaking Hutt!  OMG - a real eye-opener.  I know I have about 100 pounds left to lose, but those pix really put it into perspective for me.  Damn!  I really do have a long way to go.  So depressed.  I'm not likely to indulge at ALL today.  Not that I was really planning to - I LOATHE the food for this holiday.  But now I'm going to be nervous about any pictures taken.  I used to be so photogenic - what happened?

I feel for you, I HATE having my photo taken. I think if you focus on that great loss you have had and just think you have done that you can do more! I had been feeling quite positive about my 17lb weight loss, couple people mentioned they could see I have lost and when I was at work I saw in the mirror how big I still am.
It got me down. However, I plan to do my best to have a good week.
I hope you manage to have a really good week as well. I will be checking up and seeing how you are doing. I am rooting for you!
