Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and wondered why you look so awful?  I do this ALL THE TIME.  I think I pick out cute clothes in good colors, then I put them on and wonder what I was thinking.  I wonder why I look so huge in them. I wonder why I don't look like my cute, small friends.  I get jealous of them often because I wish I knew their secret to being thin and happy.

I spent two weeks in Europe at the end of May.  We just got back and wow!  We took TONS of photos.  And honestly, there are only a couple that I look at and think, I look like crap.  I mean, at the time, I thought I looked like crap everyday.  Now that I look at the photos, I think, I didn't look as awful as I thought.  I am by no means thin, but the photos aren't as bad as I IMAGINED myself as looking.  Yes, there are a couple and honestly, I am in the same position in all of them, leaning backwards.  I look bad leaning backwards.  But, other than that, I think I look ok in the photos.

What do YOU think?


  1. I was honestly thinking, as I looked at those photos, that I would give my left arm to look as good as you do. I think we are our own worst critic. I look at a photo of myself and see a 300 pound woman, not what everyone else sees.

  2. I think you look great! Why is it that we are so critical of ourselves?

  3. I KNOW! That's what I don't get. In person, I felt like I looked like a whale. Then I see the photos and think, I don't look that bad. It makes no sense to me. Apparently, I need to remember these pictures and say, "when I thought I looked bad, I didn't. Remember that now."
