Self Portrait Sunday 8/19/07  

Now, I totally don't want to do this BUT I am going to do it because I am trying to get over the whole pictures of me phobia. As I have said before, most fat girls don't like to have their photo taken, especially when the camera needs to be on landscape mode, and I'm at the top of that list but I WILL DO IT.

If you want to join in this weekly meme, you can do so by participating in the Self Portrait Sunday over at Digi-Cass.

I noticed everyone using their own hand to take the picture of themselves, but since that would mean even a more close up of my fat face, I decided to use my timer on my camera!! AND...I didn't even put my make up on! Sorry ya'll had to see me like that:( Well, I guess I've delayed long enough. DrumRoll please~~~~~~~~~~~~

    This is a terrific photo. You look so relaxed for a gal who is scared out of her wits.

    Great picture :)

    Having a pet or a kid in our arms seems to help us relax our faces for these things.

    I think you look great! Love the doggie too! I tried to include one of my dogs, Beans, but she was just too wriggly and I kept shaking the camera. My picture only took 97 tries! I must learn to do that photo shop stuff...

    Hey Jo...thanks for the visit and the nice words. Yeah, I wanted a bigger dog to "hide" me but they were all out prowling;)

    And I took quite a few shots before picking this one. I think a timer and a tripod works much better than holding the camera yourself!

    Great first picture.
    I do the kid-cheat quite a bit myself because I usually take a billion tries myself otherwise.
    Welcome to the meme!

    You are NOT fat at all! You look adorable and your dog is precious!!! It is a GREAT picture!! I'm going to have to try this meme soon! :)

    Jackie~~Aw..you're too kind. I am definately a fatty, you just can't see it all;)

    I'm so happy I won your contest!! You can be brutally honest about my site.

    And you should join the meme, it's been fun and I've had lots of traffic which is a bonus!

    Aww, you're too hard on yourself! This is a great picture, and you look wonderful :) I've taken plenty of pictures with the timer too (smaller double chin that way lol), so no worries there! Hope to see you become a regular on SPS!

    Jennifer~~Yeah, I am a little hard on myself but it's because I know it's the truth.
    And I know exactly what you mean about the double chin or triple in my case..lol.
    I plan to do the meme on a regular basis. I'm having fun as long as I don't look at my own picture:)

    I agree with everybody else. It's a great picture of you. And you have beautiful hair! I miss the days when I had long hair.

    Okay, I'm not original ;) but that's a beautiful picture.

    I know, getting over a picture phobia isn't easy... I still don't like pictures of myself much... but the more you take the more yoy get used to it. It's like hearing your voice on the first on radio !

    Anyway, you look beautiful. Do I need to mention the hair I'm so jealous of again ???

    hey join the club with the phobia. I am the same way. That is a great picture by the way. I think you already know my opinion on the pictures you post on your site (well other than the "bobbit" ones :0 )

    Hola Chica! I think people are just "being polite" when they say it's a pretty picture. I know dang well it's not a good picture. Nevertheless, I appreciate the kind words.

    My hair was washed today..lol. It don't happen EVERY day unfortunately.
