Like so many of you, I have always hated having my picture taken. For YEARS I avoided cameras or always hid behind everybody else in them. I always offered to be the one TAKING the picture to avoid being in them. So now I regret I have very few pictures of me. I have realized that even when I was slimmer I thought I was fat.
I decided a few years ago to go ahead and be in photos "warts" and all! Now I can look back and see the changes that have taken place since I have lost weight. Even though I cringe at most of these, I do see all the progress I have made. I will never be a "camera ham" LOL but I can at least smile and try my best to look good in them.
I realize that I will probably never see myself in the pictures the same as my friends and family sees me in them. To deny my family, who love and accept me as I am NOW, to have pictures of me is selfish.
A friend had this link on her Face Book page and I really enjoyed reading it. Life is too short, as this girl found out, to sweat the small stuff like getting your picture taken.
You are BEAUTIFUL just the way you are RIGHT NOW! So go find a camera and SMILE!!
