A picture post * bit-o-skin * Mother's day gift?

For Mother's Day my daughter set me up in her studio and took some pictures.
Through the evening there were 277 pictures taken and about 7 keepers :)

Honestly, I was really afraid to see them as they popped up one by one on her HUGE flat screen (I do most of my stuff on a mini laptop.... for a good reason!)

Yes, there were plenty that I wanted to crop, delete, hold my hand over and scream Don't Look!!! but there were a few that I said - WTH? That is not as bad as I thought it would be!

It was a cool gift because for the first time since surgery I could see a difference. I mean, I notice stuff here and there...but when I look in the full length I still see the same person as 9 months ago when I was 79 f'ing lbs heavier...yes, that dang pound just won't take a hike so I can claim 80. In fact, every couple days for the past month I add 3, drop 2, add 1 BUT THE MATH NEVER = 80!
Oh well, it will happen, eventually, when I'm an old lady.

So, because I want to be brave like my hero Band-Babe... I am going to share these here... even with a little skin showing.

  8. I'm blushing! I'm trying to find just the right words here... you look really good. How about the ones for your other blog??? Oh, don't think I've forgotten about that! These would probably work well there... and you are so naturally photogenic. As much as fun as I think it would be, I wouldn't be able to pull anything like this off. Wow. Keep rocking it.

  10. You just gave me a new goal. When I lose all the weight I want to, I'm going to get professional pictures done like these. They are awesome. I just got 80 followers, so I am going to make a prediction that your 80 lbs will be coming soon.
