fear of posting my picture

Thursday, May 12, 2011

I have enlisted the help of a co- worker to take a digital photo of me so it can be posted. I guess i am afraid of how horrendous I will find myself.The only thing that is motivating me to post a pic is the belief that I am moving away from the lifestyle that contributed to how I look.I keep envisioning the pictures that will follow as I reach my goals and then how fantastic i will feel when I know I will never be a yo yo dieter again!

    I had the same problem but I convinced myself that everyone here is in the same boat. They either aren't happy with the appearance or their lifestyle for that matter both. When I see my picture I barely recognize myself. But then I realized that I could use that for motivation.
    I told my hubby I wanted a bunch of pictures of myself everywhere on the fridge, on the doors as I walk out, on the mirrors(that only reflect my top half) having to face and see what I have done to myself I think will help keep me in line.

    A lot of people don't have a picture of themselves maybe put up a motivational picture such as a place you want to go when you succeed in your goals. It's ok not to put up a picture. When you are ready and comfortable with it you will. I think people will understand and respect your choice. I know I do, and it makes no difference to me either way. You are still you, picture or not.
