@dreamer1288:  You look great! I don’t see what you’re seeing about being overweight, but that is even in your before pictures. I’m not sure if the smaller pictures are supposed to be after? Because I can barely see them. But you look good.

I must not be seeing what you are seeing. You look beautiful.

@dreamer1288:  Although the bottom pics are really small so it is honestly hard to “tell”, I think you look great from what I can see. I don’t forsee you needing to lose any more weight unless you want to. We are our own worst critics. Did you try the dress on the second time when it was your time of the month? If so, that is probably what is causing you to look and say these things.

You look great, and I love the dress.

Um, you look great.

You look like a regular sized person in a gorgeous dress that shows off your curves.

My honest opinion is that you have a completely normal, healthy, average, non-fat/non-skinny figure (like me!). I worry about how you feel about yourself, though, and think that you should consult a therapist that specializes in eating disorders to help with the mental/emotional pressures you’re putting on yourself about your weight. You want to nip that in the bud just in case you ever develop habits that could hurt yourself. 🙁

I can’t see an after photo, but I think you look great “before” and it doesn’t look like you had 25-30 pounds to loose.

@dreamer1288:  Well, for what it is worth, if these are before photos and you have since lost some weight and tones up I bet you look terrific becuase you look terrific in these.

@dreamer1288:  You really look great, but I know that may sound hollow over the internet. Therapy doesn’t have to be taboo “THIS GIRL IS CRAY, TALK SOME SENSE INTO HER” – it’s great for learning simple tricks to teach yourself how to interepret situations like comments you take wrong, noticing an unflattering photo-tag on facebook, etc – just dealing with all the thoughts us girls tend to deal with 🙂

@dreamer1288:  You look great! Sometimes when we are used to seeing ourselves a certain way and feel negatively about self-image it is hard to change our mindset even when we change the way we look. You still see the person you were used to seeing for so long. That is completely normal. I would honestly suggest seeing a therapist. It’s not a bad thing, just a great way to help you change the way you see yourself and learn how to love yourself and your body.

OMG, you look fabulous (both before and after). I can totally understand how you’re feeling. You do look more toned in the after pic, but honestly, there was nothing wrong with you to begin with. Some brides would kill to look like you in your before pic!
