i've been both.
I was an adorable little baby.
But growing up I was always a fat little girl, then a fat big girl...
In college, I slowly lost weight, then I had a major drive and I got down to 130 pounds. I was skinnier then my sister Bethany! This is a picture of me when I worked at the College Bookstore.
I met Chase when I was very thin. This is the night we met.One time when he was over, he saw a sibling picture of me at my sister's wedding. He asked why I wasn't in it. Mind you, he hadn't met all my siblings yet, but still. I told him I was & pointed to me. He just laughed and thought I was kidding... nope.
Well since I got married, I didn't stay that thin. At all. This is us at New Years.
Last week I found a really pretty picture of me. I was tan and thin and just looked my best. I brought it to him and said, "Don't you love this picture?" His reply, "Who is it?"... I guess now he's forgotten what I looked like when we met, because he couldn't even tell it was me. (If I had a scanner, I'd show you the exact picture, but I don't, so you'll just have to know it was around the same time as this picture below.)
Do I really change THAT much that I am not recognizable? Is that normal? Does anyone else change so much?!
ps: this post is supposed to be a funny post about how my looks change so much. it's not a negative blog about my weight. i like my weight and thank you for the compliments on my looks. i am pretty hot, aren't i?
