Before my wedding, I was feeling fat, ugly, and generally horrible. I forgot all about it, though, in the rush to get things done and the enjoyment of the day and the honeymoon.
And then I saw the wedding photos.
And you know what? I look gorgeous! Not fat or ugly at all. Who would have thought that photos could boost your self-esteem like that? Turns out that when I looked in the mirror, I was focusing on my flaws and not seeing the whole picture. The photos really helped with that.
That said, I still want to lose weight. But now I'm not so hard on myself, and have positive rather than negative sources of motivation. Woo hoo!
