I absolutely hate having my picture taken! I know I am fat I don't need to be reminded in pictures! Then to have a coworker post it on face book for the world to see is humiliating.

I feel your pain. I mean I hate them. And guess what? I won an award related to my job and people are coming to take my picture at work tomorrow and it is going to be published in the newspaper and I am cringing just thinking about it.And there is really no way to get out of it. I don't know what I'm going to do.....the timing is horrible.

I abhor it, as well. I actually get angry when my peers attempt to make me take photos with them.

I prefer to take the pictures myself, though I do think I'll be much more content to be photographed when I believe I'll actually look good in one.

In this one that was taken of me I am sitting down with a coworker and I can see a BACK FAT ROLL how humiliating. I know I have lost 30 pounds but I am still huge!

I know how you feel, the only thing that keeps me sane is telling myself that it is just temporary and if I keep working hard, I will never be fat again. We will get there!

I can't stand pictures either!! I only want them taken with my camera so I can delete the bad ones- which are usually all including me.
