Family Pictures

We got a new family portrait done today.

Don't we look cute? I super love this new family portrait way more than our old one. Can you guess why?

Duh you say, the reason is that I look a TON better in the new one since I've lost 70lbs since May 2010. However, in this picture I'm at my heaviest so I'd say the weight difference between the two pictures is around 125lbs.

In all the poses we took to get the old family photo the photographer always put me in back. I didn't mind, I didn't want to be in the front. In all the poses we sat for today, I was always in the front, surrounded by my boys. I don't know for sure if it the weight made the difference on my placement or my attitude and how I projected myself did it. I know I was miserable 125lbs ago as you can tell by my half-assed smile and I'm a happy girl now as you can tell by my big teeth-baring grin. Don' we all look much happier? I wonder if the old adage is true: "If Mom ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!"

I love your pictures - they look so nice. Even Grumpybutt looks happy! I think you also have a great point about attitude and how you project yourself. You have done an excellent job! Keep it up.

Plus, I'm very impressed with your weight loss throughout this season and especially because you make the yummiest-sounding things.

Like Becky said, it's so telling about how miserable you were before. You all look so happy now!
