Bigger-than-we-should-be people seldom photograph well. I can look in the mirror at the right angle and convince myself I’m not in that bad of shape. Then somebody will snap a picture and I’ll go “Whoa. Who let Shamuu out of SeaWorld for the weekend?”
Cameras don’t lie, and seeing some recent photos was one of the reasons I got serious about this. I don’t look good, and I don’t look particularly happy… and somehow I think those two often go along side-by-side.
