Why You Shouldn’t Avoid the Camera

ar-and-ethan-blacks-beachI recently interviewd Chelle Stafford in a Losing Weight After Baby podcast where she shared that one of her biggest regrets was not taking anypictures of herself with the kids.  (That podcast is titled “How One Mom Lost 50 Pounds.”)  Since she was overweight, she didn’t want to see herself in pictures.  She wouldn’t let anyone take a picture of her.  Does that sound familiar?  Yet now, she wishes she had pictures with her kids so they would those concrete memories together.

So moms, it doesn’t matter if you are 100% happy with your body right now.  Take pictures with your kids and make sure you are in them too!

Here’s a photo tip if you feel camera shy:  put your kids in front of you, like you see me here with my son.  Kids can shield the areas we want to hide from the camera – ha! 

And remember, if you’re not happy with what you see, do something about it!  You can lose the weight just like Chelle Stafford did, and you’ll have the pictures to prove it!
