The Fat Lens

Monday, July 19, 2010

My older sister just returned back to her home from vacationing with us here in Fernley, and she was gracious enough to send me an e-mail attaching the pics she took on her visit here. I showed them to my husband, and his comment was that we sure did look bigger in the pics, than we actually "are". I just laughed and told him that "no" the pictures do not lie, and "yes" we are actually that big. When we view ourselves in the mirror, there is a certain amount of denial that is in play, but the reality of the photograph is all too real. He just shook his head and walked away while mumbling to himself that "Sis must've taken the pictures with the FAT LENS."

    OMG!! The fat lens...Now that's funny! I would return the camera! There has to be a camera with a skinny lens on it! I love it!

    It was pictures of me that motivated me to "lose the middle". I'm now down 20 pounds+/-, and just reurned from a trip with a group of friends. I can TELL I am down those 20 pounds in the new pictures. Still have 30 to go, but I'm looking much better. I guess that's why it's so important to get a "fat" picture, even if you don't want to face the camera. You need that as motivation.
