Camera weight and rationalizations

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

They say that the camera adds 10 pounds...I want to know who added soooo many cameras to me when pictures are taken. I look in the mirror and know that I am heavy - but I swear - the mirror does not look anything like the woman in the photographs. I don't know who is to blame...the mirror company, Kodak, the camera manufacturer.....or perhaps is it just my rationalization?

Could that very same rationalization be responsible for my faulty thinking of " I didn't eat THAT much" but when I log my food I am forced to admit that not only was it THAT much but more.

Could that very same rationalization be responsible for the "its not my fault I am so big because of fill in the blank". At what point do I say enough is enough and I am going to be responsible for me and all that it entails?

The last few weeks I was very sick with pneumonia and was more interested in feeling better than making the better choices. I quit making better food choices and headed straight for the comfort foods. The scale reflects my lack of control and lack of activity...back up to 248. Today, feeling better, starting to make the healthy choices again. Still training for the 12K walk. Still working on the rationalizations. Still working on me and all that it entails.

    If there is a camera in the room I am blazing a trail out of it. There are more pictures of bigfoot in the world then of me. LOL When your sick it is hard to follow the healthy path. Glad your are on the mend! You can do this! Don't give up!

    That's why I'm usually the one taking photos. It is hard to believe sometimes that "I look like that?". I've just reconciled myself to the fact that I'm too old for a two piece swim suit any more after realizining that the mirror and the camera don't see the same thing! I'm kinda guessing the camera doesn't lie since pretty much everyone else's photos look like them. emoticon
