Not sure if this is the same for all of you, but my gosh, I feel like I'm in HS again when I'm in there. I get all insecure feeling when I see pics of myself. Even my mom tagged me in a photo the WEEK I had surgery (actually she didn't know and it was 5 days afterwards) and I was at my heaviest of all times. Understand my sisters and my mom are all of normal weight, so we when I'm next to them, I can't hide! LOL. Anyway, what pain in the butt to have to check facebook so I can untag my pictures.
On the flip side, it motivates me to want to lose weight. It makes me feel competitive in a bad sort of way. I don't even like to admit that it makes me feel that way b/c I'm not shallow nor insecure. Its got everything to do with my ex-boyfriends, friends from HS, and not wanting to look like I've totally let myself go, you know? I want to look like I've got it all together - and not failed at being healthy and fit. It also makes me glad to have this band and glad that I'm going down this path.
I always think its interesting too the pictures that people choose to make their facebook profile picture. Its like an insight into that person's mind's eye. Its the best version of themselves. Sometimes its people with their kids, some women I've seen have ridiculous pictures! Here's mine:
Its me and my boyfriend.....I pretended I was Jennifer Aniston. You know, the older woman. Everyone knows how much I joke about me and JM being a future couple. If you know me, you know how ridiculously appropriate this picture is. It was an awesome day! I don't think I look 'bad' - I think I look pretty good. Heck, I was BEAMING. And hey, my body is cut out of the shot! That's some insight into my mind's eye!
