Pictures don’t lie y’all — August 4, 2009

Pictures don’t lie y’all

Oh crud. I make it a point to only have my picture taken when I look my absolute best and usually from the neck up. Yes, I’ve lost a lot of weight, but some recent pictures have made me realize that I still have a ways to go before reality catches up to my perception.  Oh, I think I should add that these photos came from my recent high school reunion.

Exhibit A

notice how my backside goes on and on...

Exhibit B

And finally Exhibit C

Look how far south the "girls" are hanging! That's pitiful!

So you might thinking, “well these pics don’t look so bad!” and you are right, they don’t. The thing that bothers me is that in my mirror (and in my head) I am two sizes smaller than this!  Seriously y’all, is there an opposite of anorexia?  Cause when I look in the mirror in the mornings, I’m thinking “how could I possibly get any smaller? I’m pretty smokin right now as it is!”  But seeing these pictures reminds me of my mom – my soft, rounded, 70 year old mother, which would be fine except that I’M NOT EVEN 40 YET!!!!! 

 

*sigh*

 

So I suppose I will keep plugging away with the cardio, but I’m also adding in some strength training and I am fo shizzle going to work on my posture (and I am upping my calcium intake because I see the first signs of osteoporosis in my rounded upper back).  Also I do believe a proper bra fitting is in order as well.  Gotta get those girls back up where they belong!

Okay, well I just needed to share that little freak out with all of you.  Thanks for listening.  Have a good day!  🙂
