THOSE BANNER PHOTOS

Lots of people have told me it is time to have some new photos taken. OK I'll admit it those banner photos were taken in the middle of last year as a school fundraiser. I've used them quite a lot. We haven't had formal family photos taken since. In the meantime Darryn and I have both lost over 20 kgs and we are still working on it (20kg each more to go). So people say we need new thinner photos and I say - we do but there's a reason why I still like and use the old ones. I don't want to be judged by my size. Even at our heaviest Darryn and I adored one another. Being thinner makes us healthier, fitter and better role models for our kids but it doesn't change the way we feel for each other. These photos remind me that I'm not losing weight to be loved any more. I've always been loved.

Good on you for the non-judgement thing Mel!! Just me wanting to make sure I'll recognise you when we're both at CC2006!!! ... though I'm sure to know the smile.
Perhaps I should just say MORE photos ... even more of the favorites ...

Oh Mel what awesome thoughts.
Hey and congrats on the BG page - I love it.
BTW I really like your photo in the earlier post about photos pre scrapping. Have you scrapped it yet. I think it's a great photo - the kind of photo you try to capture but can't - not posed.

I'd give a million bucks to the person who could change the way I think about my weight Mel - Love your thoughts!
