Lost Weight with Gastric Bypass? Hints for Great After Pictures



I clearly remember how much I loathed having my picture taken when I was morbidly obese. Actually, I didn't mind having the picture taken, it was seeing the picture of the sad fat lady that bothered me. I suppose most of us are that way.

After experiencing massive weight loss with gastric bypass surgery many patients embrace having their picture taken because we see a person we've only dreamt about being in the photo. Here are some hints for looking gorgeous in "after" photographs.

The best advice for a great "after" photo - wear form-fitting clothes instead of blousy ones. Form-fitting clothes show off your new shape where blousy clothes make you look bigger. Didn't we spend enough time looking bigger - and we all know the camera adds 10 pounds. Next, select a flattering neckline whether it's a V-neck, scoop neck, or boatneck. And stick to darker shades; they tend to recede in photos, having a slimming effect. What to avoid: Bold, bright prints.

Next let your happiness show with a genuine smile. Rather than focusing on posing the perfect smile think about all the good things in your new life. Appreciate and glorify in how far you've come. Let your eyes sparkle and your happiness radiate naturally and unrehearsed.

Finally - check your posture. Avoid facing the camera straight on - this can be unflattering. Position yourself in a ¾ pose so you're facing the camera at an angle. This pose will show off your new waistline and healthy body and make you look sexy and svelt!
