Remember that dumb photo from the past that you put away in a dusty attic, and swore to never show to anyone? It's time to get it out. The hashtag #2012vs2018 is going viral, and it has people comparing the way they looked 6 years ago to their current self. Bored Panda has compiled weight loss and haircut, even "ugly duckling" and a few other transformations so unbelievable, it's hard to believe they feature the same people. Scroll down to check out the makeovers, vote for your favorites and to add photos of your own 6-year changes as well!

Jesus people. Do you guys understand how "posing" works? Because she was laughing in that one picture doesn't define her entire existence at that time as bubbly and happy and fun loving. And just because she is simmering and done up in the second one she isn't a psychopathic Russian spy. Just take it easy and commend the transformation the person chose for themselves for whatever reason they thought it needed to be done!

It looks like you didn't have a care in the world when you were younger, so maybe grab back some of that carefree attitude, and you'll lose some of the body issues. I know personally that you can never get rid of all that self-consciousness that followed you from your younger years.

I'm going to make a suggestion. If you get a layered haircut I think it would make an even bigger difference. I think you might like it. I don't know, maybe you're growing it out for something but I am feeling like if you have your brows shaped and get your hair layered and cut then you're going to have a third photo for us. You're looking good though Kaylee.
