shocked after seeing myself in a photo

Here I go. Today was the day I went to my nieces birthday party and uploaded the pics from the day when I stopped dead in my tracks after seeing a picture of myself. I felt things: disbelief, shock, shame, embarrassment, denial, and self pity. Right now I am 5'3 and I weigh 242 lbs. I have Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome which is not my friend in that it makes me gain weight fast. I have done WW before and JM. Is a weight loss camp my solution? I need help.

I don't know if a weight loss camp will help, but I wish you good luck in finding your way to reducing weight. PCOS is no fun.

Thanks for the encouragement. It actually gave me a little hope.

I've had that moment...seeing a picture of myself and staring in disbelief! I turned that shock into action. I kept that picture of myself on a spiral notebook and I kept a food journal. That picture kept my goals front and center every single day. It lit a fire under me and I didn't stop losing weight until I got to my goal.

Ditto on finding your way to a healthier weight. Research your condition and find out how to maximize your efforts - don't let it be your reason for status quo!

Good luck!

Let me just say, I am so incredibly happy I found a place where I post and other people I have never met reads it, and comments so positively. It is so helpful for me mentally.
I really like the idea of keeping the photo with a food journal. I think it will just be the kick in the pants that I need.

You're welcome! And I will say at some point I had my picture taken again and thought, "Damn! I look good!" and I switched out my pics and was motivated by my "After" vs. my "Before" :)

I know the feeling...

Saw a photo of myself turned sideways and it was shock and horror. I looked like my dad in a wig. I made myself feel better by going vegan and reminding myself that it is all malleable and changeable, you just have to work a little harder if you have health problems.

I know what you mean!


I find photos absolutely shocking. I look in the mirror every day but don't see the woman that photos reveal.
I agree that there are diseases that make losing weight harder-I have an underactive thyroid (on medication) but maybe it just means we have to work that much harder.
I recently read an article that said to maintain the same weight next year as we are today, we need an hour of exercise per day. TO MAINTAIN! It's mind blowing. Still, it's the basic math of calories in, and calories out.

June 11 and 15

Why do photos of yourself and how you feel not match? To be reminded about just to maintain your weight- is just what I needed to hear today. It has been raining for days where I am which killed any motivation except for today which is sunny. So this means I will- go for a walk today. Calories in and out is what it boils down to. Thats right. Sometimes you get to an "AHA" moment. Thank you all! I have not weighed myself in days and I am OK with that.

An hour a day to maintain?! I don't exercise an hour a day now and I could easily lose weight if I just watch my food. I know people who have lost 60 pounds and never exercised! Now, is that the best idea in the world? Probably not, since exercise usually predicts how successful people are at maintaining weight loss, but an hour a day just to maintain? Crazy.

I see those same people at the gym hit the smoothie bar and get a 600 cal smoothie after their 130 cal workout! Sometimes, I'm one of them, except mine is the burger and fries after running for 2 hours! :)

Ultimately, the key is intake. A person can workout intensely and burn 600 cals in an hour and then negate all of that with high calorie, overconsumption. I burned thousands of calories a week marathon training and still overate - didn't lose a pound!

To the OP, glad you had your AHA moment! Stay strong!

I respectfully disagree that intensity is more important than duration. I used to burn myself out running as far as I could or do intense exercise classes (including spin classes) and didn't lose any weight. The last few months I have been walking - just walking - anywhere from 1/2 and hour a day up to a few hours a day. I've lost 20 lbs.

I'm not saying intense workouts aren't good - because they are. But this way works too. And is much more enjoyable and much less frustrating for me, personally.
