Linda Shares How She Feels When Looking At Photos When She Was Obese (VIDEO)

Rate This

Linda describes the disbelief she feels when looking at old photographs of herself when she was obese.

When I look back at photos of myself at 100 pounds heavier, I do a double-take. I can’t believe that was me. I can’t believe that I hadn’t realized that I was that heavy, and I wonder why I hadn’t done anything sooner and why I actually hadn’t noticed sooner, and my first inclination is to either delete the photo, tear it up, or actually, what I have ended up doing, is blow one of them up and remind myself to be careful.

I have enlarged one of my photos from a week before I had surgery and we had all gone to Big Bear and we got into a canoe and decided to just goof around and take photos. And there’s a close-up of me in a bathing suit. I have enlarged it and it’s on my bedroom door; when you shut the door there it is. So, it’s just kind of a personal reminder of what I had become and hadn’t realized.
