I was there.  I know what it is like to want to hide from a camera.  I really like seeing the before photos.  That gives us a reason to watch your profile and see you change.  It is like watching a baby grow.  I want to see the baby and the beautiful person you become.  You will be shocked.  I thought weight loss wouldn't make hardly a difference.  People didn't even know me after 6 months.  I had to say.  Hey its me... :)

Many do not want their photos all over the interwebz...and this is a public/open site. Anyone can read. It's not a case of hiding from the camera, it's a case of protecting your privacy.

Thank you.  The fact that anyone in the world can copy and paste a photo of anyone and put it on a very bad site is enough to make me very uncomfortable.  People will do what they are comfortable with and shouldn't feel the need to be there for someone else's needs.  I too love to watch the progression and am happy that not everyone is as suspicious as me.  But I am just grateful to those who post pics and don't ask for more.  these pics give me a sense of what I can look like after a successful WLS.

Sorry Karen it wasn't for my needs.  It was so I could encourage them.

Oh I understand that.  That is why I did not use my real name.  If you feel like that and want to protect your privacy I agree. Wasn't giving people a hard time.  Just wanted to cheer those who were embarressed.  Thanks for showing me the other side.  I never say anything I wouldn't shout from the mountain top on the internet.  I don't use my real name.  Real first name tho.  That is it.  Don't need any creepers.
