Sometimes in baby pictures you can see what people will look like when they're old. :) Heheee. It's a fun game.
Most of the baby/childhood pictures I have are the ones that I've seen over and over again. However, in 2010 I visited my sister, who had all the pictures from my dad (he got different ones than are in the albums because he was stationed overseas) and more from my grandmothers (they were in Colorado and we were in California).
In an age before digital photography, if there were two pics snapped at the same time, one was mailed off to family.
For me, it's been a tumultuous year, and I haven't taken as many pictures of myself as I was used to. I don't see friends as often, I don't go to as many events (that I always used as an excuse to get the camera out). A side effect of fewer pictures is that I'm often more surprised when I see new ones of me. And that contributes to my sense of not feeling 100% comfortable with myself. I have a lot of questions about what I might look like at my goal weight, and I've been working through some insecurities and fears related to that.
Okay, enough of the pictures are like therapy business. Here's the point: the more I change the more I stay the same. ;) Really, I will always look like me. So I just need to focus on being okay with that.
