The Girl in the Mirror

31 August 2009
When I look in the mirror I am pleased with what I see. When I see a photograph of myself I am horrified. It's not because I'm not photogenic or anything like that. It's because I have gotten quite fat. For whatever reason I see an altered view of me in the mirror. I see me way back when, young and thin... Now, three kids later I more resemble Jane than Deb in "Drop Dead Diva," at least in photos. It's like I have an image cached in my head or have some strange twist on body dysmorphic disorder. Ugh. I'm a realist, why didn't I get the message on that?
