We took engagement pictures, but now I don’t like them…

Disclaimer, the pictures are beautiful!  I have no complaints with the photographer or the quality of the pictures.

Now that we got that out of the way…

Before Mr. BC left for Molokai, I asked a friend/co-worker if he would take some engagement pictures of us.  And he agreed!  The three of us met up after work one day and spent an hour taking pictures at Lake Merritt.   I love, love, love our photographer, so please let me know if you’re interested in booking him and I’ll put you in touch.  He lives in the Sacramento area and works in Oakland.  He doesn’t have a website, so unfortunately I can’t post where you can contact him.

All pictures taken by Eric V Santos.

Here are the highlights:

Beautiful pics, right?  Eric is awesome, and VERY easy to work with.  He’s great.  Now ask me why I don’t like them!

Well Hive, I’m glad you asked… it’s because I’ve lost almost 50 lbs since those pics were taken.  I think I look fat in them.    Here’s what I look like now (please excuse the crappy photo… I  took this in the bathroom at work):

bathroom photoI’ll tell you how I lost 45 lbs tomorrow (note: it wasn’t easy).  I am still not at my goal, BUT I went from being obese to overweight.  WOOHOO!  I still have 30 ish more lbs to lose which will put me smack in the middle of a healthy weight for my height (note: I am a shorty at 5’1″)

But now I have these great pictures… that I don’t like.  Although, I did put some up on our website.  I wonder if Eric would take some more?  hehe, just kidding.
