That Better Not Be a Double Chin I See in the Mirror

Reflecting on the comments my lovely peoples left yesterday about my photos, particular the one written by Becky, I came to the realization that lo, these many months of not exercising have made me a wee bit more, well, fleshy than I was back in January.  Witness the evidence:


Me in mid-January, following angst and drama and a few days in the hospital


Me in late August, following months of no exercising and summer foodiness

That and the firmness with which my work pants pressed upon my thighs this morning when I greased slid them on for the first time in months made me think that perhaps, unless I really want to spend a minor fortune replacing my wardrobe, I really should start exercising again. It also occurred to me that perhaps four pieces of toast with lovely smooth spicy apple butter slathered all over aren't the best late night snack.

Just a thought.

5 bits of love:

It was just the camera angle. More apple butter!

Oh but that apple butter sounds so good!

I can see the difference, but I don't think it's a bad one! In the first, your chin looks pointier and you have a generally more angular look-which some folks like.
In the second, newer photo, your face is more rounded and softer-looker, which might be the look some other people prefer. Up to you, really. Me? I think it gives you a sweeter and kinder look. JMHO.

At whatever weight, you are very, very lovely.
Also, apple butter is tasty and there's the fact that you can pick up nice work clothes at resale shops and thrift stores.
Just sayin...

Never tried apple butter, but love the new photos. The boys look so sweet! I liked the pink hair though... ;-)

I don't know about "fleshy," but I'd say you look healthier! In your "pink hair" days, you were on the brink of insanity and despair. You are now in the throws of finding your life, again, and I think that's what shows on your face. I think you look better, now!
