Friday Photo: I Used To Be Puffy

Posted Nov 23 2012 3:45pm

I have never been technically overweight.  I have small bones and was a very skinny kid – all which translated into incredibly poor eating habits as an adult.  Why shouldn’t I eat whatever I wanted if the weight ramifications weren’t severe?

Now that we are moving, we are cleaning out our apartment, selling things, and emptying our Tivo (on a side note, Tivo is one of the best things I’ve ever happened to me).  Today I came across something that startled me.

Some background info:  When Steve and I got engaged we sort of became the couple du jour for the Jdate billboard and press appearances (they’ve since moved on, *sniffle*).  While it lasted, we actually got to do some really cool things through them.

Like being on a billboard in Times Square:

The closest I will ever get to Corbin Bleu

Ringing the bell on the New York Stock Exchange:

We clapped and smiled for 60 seconds

And we were on the now cancelled Anderson daytime talk show to talk about marrying within race and faith:

The camera added 10 pounds to my face

This appearance was right after my first surgery , when I decided to treat myself all the time and indulge in unhealthy food everyday since I had eliminated my risk.  My daily consumption included bagels, pizza, burritos, and coffee – none of which are part of my current eating lifestyle .   Now granted, TV makes you look bigger than you are, but I couldn’t believe how puffy I used to look.  I was a walking allergic reaction to what I was eating.  It almost looks like I have fillers in my face (who knew you could eat pizza instead of getting botox).  Look at the difference.  The photo below was taken last month.  Much better.

Thank you green juice

Have a great weekend!
