Last year my work started having us wear mandatory picture ID's every day. I already don't like my pictures as it is, but being overweight makes me hate my pictures taken even more. I thought last year was bad. This year's picture is ten times worse. I thought I would look better since I lost 17 pounds, but I look awful. For one thing the photographer took the picture way too close up. You can see every single flaw in my skin. For another my face looks super fat, even worse than last year. And I have this horrible double chin. The pics we just got today are actually for next year's badges and they are going to be used in this year's yearbook. By this time next year I will have hopefully lost this extra 29 pounds and I'll be skinny again. But I will have to wear this horrible ID badge every single day for the entire year. Somebody at work gave me a compliment yesterday that she can't believe how thin I'm getting. I was feeling so good till I saw today's picture. I still have a bunch more weight to lose till you can actually notice and now my self esteem is shot. I am going to try not to get discouraged and still carry on with my weight loss. I am just upset I am going to constantly be reminded of how disgusting I look for the next two years!
