You know that thing where you see a picture of yourself and can’t help but exclaim HOLY HELL, BATMAN, DO I LOOK FAT! Yeah. That happened to me this week. Same week, I also saw a photo that made me go “Yayes, I look awesomesauce.”
Oh, what a difference a) angles and b) a positive attitude can make! Let me share the TERRIFYING picture, taken in March, wherein I learn the lesson “srsly don’t bend over at an angle and take a photo”:
In my defense, it was FREEZING, and the three of us were attempting to pool body heat, but STILL. OMG FAT ROLLS. Also, because I am leaning into my lovely friend Emily, you can’t tell where my body starts/ends, plus I’m holding something in my hand which makes it even more confusing. I am nothing but AWKWARD SHAPES.
Here’s what’s nice, though. Because I am feeling confident that I am Doing What I Am Supposed To Be Doing, and that photo was taken 5 lbs ago, I can take an unflattering photo (neck down!) like this in stride. No fat person likes to see a picture of themselves where they look, well, fat.
So, yeah! I am actually sharing a TERRIBLE photo of me, and unlike in the past, I am totally ok with it! Progress
