I just hate to get my picture taken. I know I mentioned this not too awfully long ago. Not only is my body heavy, but my face seems to be one of the first places to show a gain! I have some heavy friends who still have a longer shaped face instead of my round shaped face, and they look awesome in their pictures! I'm not one of those people.
I know I posted a selfie of myself in my piled-up living room the other day. I wasn't ashamed to post that picture. Yes, I'm still heavy, but my face didn't have 5 chins hanging from it. LOL
My husband has been saying over the last little while, "You look like you're losing inches." Now lately, I haven't been very faithful to exercise. At least not for the last 3 weeks. But I have noticed a couple of my knit skirts keep having to be yanked up during the day because they start riding lower. When I get really confident, I'll wear button-up skirts again. Ha!
So I'm sitting here right now writing on pictures that I've had printed that range back to October of 2014. In November, my husband preached a revival. I made friends with a lady there, also named Staci but spelled differently. She wanted to take pics of us together and our kids together the last night. She is a breast cancer survivor, by the way, even at her young age!!! She used to be heavy herself, but she lost weight with WW several years back and has kept it off. I remember dreading to have my picture taken, but I smiled anyway.
This was the result, and I have LOATHED this picture. Oh, my face! The double chin is very obvious, and my poor eyes barely have room to open from the heaviness of my cheeks. This has been a most-hated picture!
While writing on it just now, I realized my face didn't look nearly that heavy in my selfie from the other day (thank heavens).
Who knows. Maybe it is just a difference in camera angle. I know that can definitely make a difference. Perhaps I am not smiling as big. Regardless, it gave me motivation to keep up with the exercise because maybe, just maybe, my body really is responding to it ever so slightly and will continue to do so!
