It’s a funny question, but a legitimate one. Being in the weight loss process myself at the moment (20 pounds so far), I can definitely relate.
The sad reality is that prejudice against overweight people – “weightism” – not only exists, it’s widespread and, perhaps worst of all, it’s considered at least somewhat socially acceptable. In fact… it’s not even prohibited by law!
So yes, if you’ve lost weight, an updated photo of the thinner you may help you get in the door… but don’t update your photo just for that. Update your photo because YOU feel good about the new you and want to present yourself online at your best… as you are now, not the old you. Don’t do it for other people — do it for own sake!
