I feel so depressed this morning, lol.



I've been losing weight. I've lost about 20lbs or so and really changed how I eat. I know I'm doing well, and I've been feeling pretty good about myself. That is until I saw the pictures we took Sunday with a photographer. I want to cry. I must have just picked a horrible shirt/pants combo because I have rolls that the light catches and muffin top.



And I thought I looked SO good that day! My husband told me the pictures were just bad, that he really didn't think I looked like that normally. He might be just trying to make me feel better, haha.



So now I'm having trouble being motivated today because I feel like I've done a lot of work and I can't believe I looked so bad in the pictures!



How do you get yourself re-motivated? haha

Probably just bad photos. I look about 500 lbs in my wedding pics.

I'm hoping that's all it is. I just feel like eating a whole cake. With gluten, haha.



I was so excited to do the picture too. It was the first time with like, a real photographer. And I'd been so happy to actually look pretty good in pictures, and then I saw them this morning and seriously wanted to cry. haha

Well just know that the more you exercise and diet, that more pounds you will keep on losing. You might not be there now, but you will get there eventually. Don't feel discouraged. I take pics sometimes and look soooooooo fat, and then others that I see I don't look bad at all. It happens.

Thanks ladies. I feel a little better. I looked at them again and when they aren't as large it's not as bad as I first thought. Here's some. I'm in the black shirt not holding the baby: I think I was just really over critical, you know? I still have a ways to go and I think I was just hoping to look better. Deep breaths, haha. They aren't as bad as I first thought.
