Worst 'Before' Picture Ever

I'm having a lovely quiet Friday night at home all by myself (for the first time in ages), eating paddle pops and catching up on the TV shows in my planner. Then out of boredom I start looking through old photos on my computer and out of nowhere am faced with the most horrific photo of myself I have ever seen. It is so bad it almost took my breath away.

I don't think I knew this photo existed, otherwise I obviously would have deleted it a long time ago. Though I have to admit that it is a pretty accurate representation of how I looked at the time, as hard as it is to admit.

Brace yourself... If you click on it you get to see the large version with pimples and all.

  1. You are such a gorgeous girl!!

    They should put you on posters to promote lapband! :)

  2. Wow! I can barely tell you're the same person. You've come so far!

  3. Honestly, it doesn't even look like you! What a transformation -- you look amazing now!

  4. Tully I had a similar experience happen when I 'stumbled' across a photo of myself at my uni graduation. Dress in the regalia (that has no shape) I might have well have been a baby elephant wearing a black tent. I absolutely loathed the photo and the first time I saw it i actually cried. I couldn't believe I looked so horrendeous but for some reason I didn't delete it, and now I am SO glad I didn't, as its a forever reminder of where I was and how far I have come.

    I hope your photo serves to remind you of how far you have come too.

  5. You are now an absolute picture of health. Never stop feeling proud of yourself, you absolutely deserve too. Well done! :)

  6. You look amazing!!! You should be so proud of what you have achieved.

    I'm forever looking back at old photos of me and can't believe how big I am (I am big, but photos are different). Videos are worse. I hate being in front of the cameras for that reason.

  7. What an amazing job you have done!
    Don't worry about that 'old' picture. You will never be back there again.

    You should be very proud of what you have achieved!

  8. You loook stunning now! xx

  9. I think we all have these before photos :o)

  10. It is amazing!!! Even your skin has change a lot.You look so happy, beautiful and healthy now. Congratulations!!! Claudia.
