anytime i take pics of women, they invariably ask 2 things:

if they are thin, they ask if i can photoshop wrinkles.

if they are heavy, they ask if i can hide double chins or wide hips.

when i take their photos, i just see beautiful, real women.  

so the other day i took a photo of myself, full body.  not something i've ever done.

when i saw the photo, i was not traumatized.  i know i'm overweight, but i'm more than that.

and maybe it's because of these women that i can now look at myself and feel ok.

1. I think it's a sign of maturity to see past any image that is dictated as "correct" or "beautiful". you ARE beautiful. I saw it the very first day we met and still see it today.

2. I wish you weren't a liar. I took that picture, not you.
