A favorite photo of myself and why…
I am an extremely critical of myself. I know we all have issues with that, but I can’t even begin to tell you how critical of myself I am. It’s really sad too! I hate it and wish I wasn’t that way. I definitely don’t want Tbug to pick that habit up from anyone.
One good thing though is I never had an eating disorder because of it. In fact, in high school I was asked on more than one occasion if I was anorexic. When I told them no, they’d ask if I was sure so I’d name off everything I had eaten that day, or if it was early in the morning I’d name off everything I ate the day before.
Now that was a little over 10 years ago, however here’s kind of how I ate in high school…
Breakfast – I usually stopped at Hardee’s on my way to school as long as I wasn’t running late for school. I’d get a Bacon Egg & Cheese biscuit and a Coke.
Mid Morning – I’d eat those large chewy sweettarts and sometimes either a Mt. Dew or a Dr Pepper.
Lunch – either Wendy’s, McDonalds, Subway, Sonic… one of those because we had open campus lunch. Now I learned to eat cheap because my dad would give me $20/week to eat on. Anything left over was mine, but that still didn’t stop me from eating. I just ate off the dollar menu.
After School – I’d go home and either eat rice with butter or an entire box of Mac & Cheese
Dinner – Whatever my mom made or sometimes we’d go out to eat… whatever
How I didn’t weigh a ton, well I ran a mile every night with my Market Lambs (sheep) keeping them in shape, however I was lazy so they usually wound up dragging me. So after I ate all that, people would ask if I was bulimic so I’d ask them if they wanted to smell my breath. See, didn’t have an eating disorder. I was on the Seefood diet. I saw it, I ate it :).
But back to today’s topic. I love this picture of myself for many reasons. First off, very seldom will you see me/hear me say this, but my hair was perfect in this photo. I was having such a good hair day! One thing about myself I’ve always loved is my smile and my eyes. The outfit I had on made me feel like queen of the world and in this particular photo, I actually look like I have a tan.
All 4 of my grandparents either were darker complected or took on really nice tans, did I get any of that… NOPE! Even my dad gets a great tan. Did I get that…. NOPE!
But, this is a photo that I actually like the way I look in.
