The pictures that pushed me over the edge.

We had a little family photo shoot over the holidays
with my family, my parents, my big brother, and his kids.

These will forever be known as the "before photos"
I'm not kidding, Roger and I both decided
to join Weight Watchers
after seeing these photos.
As soon as payday rolls around,
I'll be on their scale crying my eyeballs out
and forking over the registration fee.

At least the kids look cute. Yeah...just look at the kids!

I especially love the ones of Griffin pretending to be a rockstar.

Cute pix! I had a moment like you just a few days ago when I saw a photo of myself. (What happened to my neck? Where is it? All I see is chin! EEEK!) WW is a really good program, I'd say the best around. Good luck! - G

Every Christmas Eve we take a big family pic too. When I looked at myself, I had that same moment!! I told hubby "I'm fat and I just gotta do something!". So I too will be joining WW.

Excellent pictures! I love the rock star poses. Just remember that we are our own worst critics. Be happy.

Those are great pictures - the unusual lighting makes them much more interesting than the standard family portrait.

Don't be so hard on yourself - I thought you looked great! Happy new year!

Mad Woman said...

What a cute family you have!! I had the same kind of epiphany as you not so long ago and WW is working for me (you can how well at my other blog http://lookingforfeet.blogspot.com )

Good luck! You can do it :)

Oh my gosh I love them all! And you look beautiful love, don't let the numbers on the scale make you think otherwise. :)

Amie said...

These are really wonderful photos and I think you all look great. But I do understand seeing a pic of yourself and feeling like things need to change. I have been avoiding the camera myself these days.

Candice said...

Aww, I think those are great photos!

I think you are a cute little family. We're often our own worst critics.

PS I don't allow my photo to be taken. I tell everyone I'm Amish.

Danielle said...

Great pictures!!
I did the same thing this week. I walked by a mirror and was like, who the hell was that? Backed up and about shit myself.
