I Seriously Did A Double Take
When I uploaded my weekend pictures onto my computer tonight,
I seriously had to do a double take.
Is that me?
Maybe it was taken at a weird angle.
That can't be me . . . though it reminds me of the me from many years ago.
No. This is what I look like.
(taken in March)
I quickly looked at more pictures . . .
. . . looking for the
fat fluffy puffy plump face
and double chin that I know is "me".
(taken in April)
(taken in June)
But . . . in pictures from this weekend, I keep finding this face . . .
(next to the adorable little guy with the chubby cheeks)
. . . not this one.
(taken the end of June)
. . . or this one.
(taken in July)
Is that me?
Now . . .
please go back and look at all of the adorable pictures of Noah . . .
that is why these pictures were taken. (smile)
When we walked into Gregg & Kayla's on Saturday afternoon,
Kayla immediately mentioned that she noticed my weight loss,
and specifically mentioned "in the face".
She knows I'm trying to lose weight.
I thought she was "being nice",
but hoped that maybe there was a little difference.
I didn't realize that we haven't seen them in 6 weeks,
and I guess I have lost a bit of weight in that time.
Usually (as in when the earlier pictures were taken) I do my hair,
put on my makeup, and feel okay about how I look . . .
until I upload the pictures. In each of the pictures from the last 6 months,
when I put them on the computer, I thought, "Ugh. Do I really look that bad?"
So, I always feel like pictures make me look a lot more overweight
than I feel "in real life". Therefore, you can imagine my SHOCK
to upload pics and think they make me look skinnier than in real life
(especially since they were taken after a long, hot day at the fair,
when I had not just put on makeup or done my hair).
I definitely did a double take tonight.
I've got a lot left to lose, but these new pictures sure are a motivator.
