C is for...

Fat Chick version

C is for Camera - As a fat girl I avoided cameras like the plague. I am noticeably missing from an entire decade of family photos. Seriously there are few pictures of me from age 18 to 35 floating around. How did I manage this? Well by always volunteering to be the photographer. On rare occasions the camera caught me and here is some of the photographic evidence:

Above: At my highest 3 days before surgery. I just got through making scrambled eggs for 400 Dad's (Father's Day Breakfast) at my school.

Above: I'm telling everyone this is my Aunt Carmella now. This lady wasn't going to live to long.

Post Gastric Bypass version

C is for Camera - Post-op snap away. I don't mind having my picture taken and I'm looking forward to being in family photos now. After plastics I'm treating my Mom and I to a portrait together. I don't cringe when someone gets out a camera now. What a difference a year makes!

Above: With my co-workers and pals Dame Tooter and Amy Williams.

Above: Modeling a great sweater find from TJ Maxx. I love that store.

Above: Mmmm Protein Popsicles are gooooood!
