The Crazy Suburban Mom: Traumatized...

Thursday, August 13, 2009


Today is the last day to get a picture in for that thing. You know the thing?

Thing is here about 3/4 down the post

So today was put up or shut up day. My son liked the idea of the thing so this morning I was in the bathroom taking eleventy-jillion pictures so I could get one that I could stand. Also to have time to Photoshop the wrinkles out of it.

The whole picture thing is very traumatic for me. Pictures are the reason I started weight watchers in the first place (You can read about that here). I'm no where near comfy with the camera yet.

To keep it real...I sent a picture in before I posted here. I was afraid I would change my mind. I just dabbed out a wrinkle here and there and worked my double chin to within an inch of it's, Um, chinniess and hit send. I was making myself nuts.

And I'm gonna post one here that's a bit more,worked shall we say.


I like it even better cause I'm fairly sure it looks so much not like me my own father would say, Who the heck's that?

That's what I'm looking for in a self-portrait, anyway.

Not a shred of resemblance.

If it helps, if this picture wasn't on your blog...I'd say "Who the heck's that?".

You are a very pretty lady. I think if you still had your sno-cone machine on your hips, you would still be pretty.

I don't like photos of myself either. For some reason, I look like a middle aged woman in them:)

I hate all photos of me. I don't think I've ever taken one I liked :)

I bet you'd look great on a box, though ;)

I hate pictures of myself! That's why I love Creative Memories and cropping :)

Here, here! I'm with you on the no resemblance!

No matter if I think I'm looking decent when I look back on the picture in the camera, I was a hot mess.

Thanks everyone :) And I'd like to thank the folks at photoshop for allowing me to look completely different!

I'm really not comfortable with photos or videos of me. For some reason, I always get surprised at how I look at them. In a negative way.

I like photos of me when I was younger! LOL

Just found your blog through Helene's blog. It is awesome! I look forward to reading more from you. :)
