Finally, the much anticipated progress photo is here! Sorry it took so many days to put together. There’s a long story behind the delay which involves a dirty pair of pants, a rusted pipe in the laundry room, a somewhat unreliable brother who works in the plumbing department of a local hardware store and conflicting definitions of the phrase “I’ll fix it tomorrow.” Why don’t we throw a baby panda in there while we’re at it? Baby pandas are cuteness on a stick (a butterstick)!
To sum up. Here is me fat (a year ago) and now not quite as fat (today). I look quite skinny standing next to my old fatter self. And my arms have gotten longer! Er, not. They’re just less at an angle now.
I once tried to use my photo manipulation skills to see what I would look like at my goal weight, but I just looked like an ironing board with a pony tail. Getting the curves right is hard. Props to all the artists who manipulate images for magazine covers because it’s harder than it looks. Not as hard as drawing an egg though. It’s easier to break eggs than to draw them.
