The mystery of "the camera adds ten pounds"

I'm joining in again with Brandy for Fat Ass Friday.

Just click on the button to visit her blog and hear all about her battles with Cheddar Biscuits and Zumba in the quest for a slimmer and more shapely ass!

I'm not fully on the weight-loss bandwagon yet, but I still enjoy playing along.

I'd like to pose an interesting question: Why is it that while the mirror can lie, the photograph never does?

Do you have this experience too?

I don't know about you, but I can easily look at myself in the mirror and be fooled that I look great - certainly not overweight at all! But when I look at photos of myself I see the awful truth - I am actually overweight after all. How does this happen?

Another mind-boggling mystery for us to all meditate upon...

I know exactly what you mean! I will think I'm not THAT bad and see a picture and yuck!

Thanks for linking up!

That happens to me ALL the time! I'll think I look great and feel good about myself...and then be horrified when I see the pictures! Makes me work harder to look a little better the next time though!

I wonder why that is. Maybe we can be in denial, until we see a photo. Then it's undeniable.

Same here! I can look in the mirror and think, "I look pretty darn cute!"... then look at a photo of me and want to hurl.

It must be a female thing, because my husband says he doesn't understand that at all.
