Oh for heavens sake! Look at that bum! Nice and plump. Just how we like em. What's the problem? Splat!
Hahahaha! Yup! We splat!
Then you need glasses!
:) You and The SM would agree with each other and I would tell you both that you love me so you see me skewed. :D
This is an actual thing, you know - not seeing faces right. Not recognizing yourself. I had to back up ten feet, looking at that image - I thought, "Who the heck is that??? Trying to figure out who, walking down the street, you'd have been taking a picture of - that I wouldn't recognize? B and I need to beat you up.
Wait until I get there so I can help. I'm already feeling a little anxious about being the chubby friend! I just keep trying to tell myself to smile and keep it all covered up fashionably....Rachel, no more picture editing for you!
I do that every time I look in the mirror! I back up ten feet and wonder who that is!
Don't feel anxious Donna. Once you get here and meet us you'll realize you're the only sane one in the group. :D
Only sane(?) one...now I AM scared!
Did you know that some people actually don't see themselves at all in a mirror? They'll see everthing else reflecting in the mirror, but not their own image. Body dysmorphia. Like Kristen said, it's real. In the extreme, it's diagnosed as body dysmorphic disorder. Ugh, here I am getting all pedantic. What am I trying to say? I guess just that it really is no joke. But sometimes we do have to laugh at ourselves - a reminder that at least we know on some level that our perception of our image *is* distorted. Which is better than NOT recognizing it as distortion, you know?
That is actually fascinating. I had no idea. I mean, I knew that people saw themselves differently but..... to not see themselves at all. I didn't know that! Hmmmmmm. I wonder which is worse. Seeing yourself hugely distorted or not seeing yourself at all...........You're right. Recognizing the distortion. That's somewhat healthier I hope!
Go ahead..you know ya wanna comment!
