Born Squishy - Photo's

"A photograph is usually looked at - seldom looked into." ~ Ansel Adams

I found this quote and it immediately resonated with me. I've never enjoyed having my picture taken.... primarily because I've never felt comfortable in my own skin, and I didn't like the idea of pictures floating around that reminded myself & others of that fact. When viewing photo's of myself I tend to look beyond the photo to the emotion that lies behind the photo...... which is seldom a positive experience for me.

Here's a few pictures I've managed to dig up & finally found the courage to share:

The amount of times you appear in a High School Year Book is directly relative to two factors; how involved you are in extra curricular activities & how popular you are. Well in 1988 I started grade 9, my first year of High School in Bradford, Ontario. Beyond the mandatory portrait photo, I appeared only one other time; which was in a music class photo. The sad part is that I wasn't even supposed to be in music, but due to my late registration I had to choose between Music and some other class..... which I can't even remember.... which means it had to be worse than music.

Grade 9, Age 14, I was around 5' even @ +150 lbs

Jan.1st, 2010 - 254.1 lbs @ 43.1% Body Fat.

In this next series of pictures, I'm wearing a T-shirt that was bought for me back when I weighed around 210 lbs..... which I never wore because I didn't like the way I looked in it. It's still way too tight (I'm 22 lbs heavier than when it was purchased for me), but I'm going to keep using this T-shirt to show my progress in later pictures.

Feb.28th, 2010 - 237.1 lbs @ 37.2% Body Fat.

Feb.28th, 2010 - 237.1 lbs @ 37.2% Body Fat.

I will be adding more pictures in the future.

Dude you are looking awesome! What a HUGE difference. I am betting you kept that NIN shirt. My husband is in love with them and would never get rid of their things.

Keep up the great work!

Thx LTBL. Yeah I'm keeping the NIN shirt for now..... but it's gonna be stupid looking -20 lbs from now.

I actually have a nephew on Sherri's side that should be able to put it to good use..... the only difference is where I filled it out with fat, he'll fill it out with brawn.
