  • I find that I look bigger in pictures than I think I am. I'm ok with what I see in the mirror, but when it comes to picture----WOW--- is that really me and am I really that BIG.?? A picture says a thousand words.

  • It was a picture that made me diet and lose some of that weight.

  • Pictures do not lie my friends. But I agree - I look at least 20 lbs heavier in pictures than I feel IRL!!

  • Oh man... I look like a giant whale in pictures. Which is I'm sure exactly how I look in real life. Maybe my house has "skinny mirrors", heh.

  • Yes, sometimes I feel that way. I think it depends on the angle, lighting, etc. I happen to be on the smaller side, so I often feel like I can't complain for fear of someone getting grumpy at me.

  • I always look horrible in pictures. My driver's license picture looks like I should be shot and put out of my misery!
