Very Serious Question a.k.a. MOO! - UPDATED!!!!

Why is it that when I look at myself in the mirror, I see someone who is chunky. Someone who needs to lose 20'ish pounds...

But when I see a picture of me, I truly see a GIANT HUMONGOUS FAT COW that needs to lose 837.25 pounds?

Honest to betsy (who is betsy??), Mark was testing his new flash on Saturday and each picture of me was just GIANT HUMONGOUS FAT COW'ish and yet when I look in the mirror, I see someone not that moo-ish. LIterally every picture of me I made him delete. Forever. This was the ONLY pic at my family Christmas celebration that isn't forever vanished.

p.s. - thanks to lovely said flash, it appears my husband has a severe case of a mullet. He does NOT have a mullet. Thank you very much.

p.s.s.- Mmmmoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo......

p.s.s.- Dave? Ummmm??? Dave???? Honey, we need to chat...call me. Let's chat. Grizzly Adams was SUCH a last year look.

p.p.s.s.- Mmmmooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo......

Stop mooing! You are gorgeous just as you are! I like the pic... mullet and all. :o)
Mike said to tell you about the kids using my "granny panties" as a parachute while jumping off the bed. Don't feel too bad for me- he put them up to it! LOL!
Seriously. You look fabulous! Don't change a thing!

Personally, I think you are kinda hot.

I've become a big fan of the deep v neck shirt with a tank underneath, for some reason it helps me keep my own inner moo to a quieter rumble.

Because you're female and that's what we do:( Very sad but true. We don't see ourselves how others do.

You're beautiful! Deal with it:)

Oh and what is up with Dave???!!!
A mullet (even a pretend flash induced one) would be better!

Kathy Frederick said...

Oh, Margaret, stop it! It's all in your head. Feel awesome today because you look it!

As for Dave, is that picture for real? I didn't see the show, but I did hear something on the news this morning about him growing it, and that Conan O'Brien did the same? What's up with that? Is it part of an elaborate joke I missed? Geez. Oh wait, found something:
Chicago Sun Times story about beards

OH my God! Margaret, if you don't stop talking like that about one of my best bloggy friends, I'm gonna come over there and slap you. (Alright, I'll clean out your fridge while I'm there!)

Seriously girl, the cow is only in your head. You look great! We are all our own harshest critics. Now stop mooing at yourself, pretty girl, and tell us about the clothes your handsome mullet-head bought you for Christmas!

Badness Jones said...

OH my god! Was that David Letterman?! I just went back....I skipped by it at first because I thought it was some American politician I'd never seen before and didn't care about....Seriously, I have to stop going to bed with the kids!!!

Love the pic!!!!

We got a digital video camera for Christmas...guess who is going on a diet Monday...Seriously I have no neck in any of the video...it is just cheeks melting into shoulder...as an added bonus most of the video of me was taken while I was in the middle of an Electric shock duel so I am gasping and twitching like some giant blow fish.

You are not fat and I can say that honestly because I know you in real life.

You're hot. For real.

I'm the same way though. Hailey took a picture of me with her camera and I almost cried.

You're crackin' me up.


Stop mooing now.

You are so not a mooer.

You are beautiful. And mullet or no, you make a cute ass couple.

Heather said...

You are such a dork! Stop mooing.

You're beautiful, and you and Mark are SO cute together!

I know what you mean about the photos, I hate pics of me, but seriously you look great. You are way slimmer than me, so I can't be too sympathetic:)
My secret to good photos of myself is the self-portrait. Hold the camera above your head looking down at you and look up into it. Voila, no double chins, even cheek bones!
You look beautiful. Accept it!
