Allowing myself to be photographed!! Am I mad?

by PennyForthem on 11 Aug 2013, 10:01

I've now dropped to 11.9 and have 9 more to go to target! That should take me into the healthy BMI range.
But a strange thing has happened: I was sitting in the sun, waiting for hub, who is a keen photographer. I was down by the Menai Straight on Anglesey, admiring the view, when hub appears and starts photographing me. Normally, this makes me very shirty, but...... he took several photos and I just sat there smiling. Even for me, the results looked good!

Ok, I can see where I need to lose more weight, but I asked to come back to the same seat in October, when I'm hopefully at target (but still not 'slim') and repeat the experiment.

Am I going mad?

(One other thing; there's a fabulous pizzeria there, too, overlooking the water, so maybe we could pop along for a pizza too! Now, that would be a treat!)

Start weight: 210lbs, maintaining at 140/144lbs. And loving it

Put a smile on my face that did. Good on ya. And look forward to eating that pizza in October.
I will - and I'll blog about it, too! Thank you!
