SELF-PORTRAIT TUESDAY


Today is Tuesday which means it's time to post another portrait of myself. Actually, I didn't take this one (as it's meant to be a 'self'portrait' does that mean I should take the photo? I'm still struggling with that one). Anyway... it's a shot that's a bit out of my comfort zone - taken by Elliot (age 5) while we were out fishing on Saturday. Why did I chose this picture? Well I've been quite smug with myself for losing 20 kgs but then I see this photo and I think 'Yup, gotta lose that next 20!" - it's falls into to 'motivational' category (for all the wrong reasons!).

Mel, be SO proud of what you've achieved ... and you know what, if your five-year-old thinks you look like a poster girl - believe him!!
Nice picture by the way; I like your floatie fringe and I like the empty sky (and I think it's okay for someone else to take the photo; it's simply important that it's about You).

Lol @ Ali but shes right...wtg! you look fab and we are all proud of you! I love your dress too as well. As for others taking the photo...Id think that will have to be the norm for me as I am useless at taking my own photo...but I can do my own blood test ...howabout that!

I agree - be proud...that is certainly something to be celebrating EVERY day with. And I bet you will look back at this photo and appreciate it for what it is - YOU NOW and TODAY... happy and enjoying life with your family. Celebrate life for what it is, not what it should be. TFS

OK that 'dress' is a wrpa around skirt I've had forever but I love the Maori koru design on it. And it's one of only 2 skirts I own that still fit me, which is good, as the others are too big. Thanks for all your kind comments. They're a buzz!

Cool photo Mel. Loved the angle of it and then you said your son took it - it's great. You've done great too with your weight loss. Good on you. You look happy.

great Mel! This portrait Tuesday thing is a good idea. I might have to give it a go when live gets a bit more routine i.e. end of the holidays.

Hey, no pressure Mel(!!) but since I see you've been on-line today at Kiwiscraps (you weren't stocking up on old stock Heidi Swapp were you??? LOL), I want to point out that it's time you updated your blog. What've you been doing lately??? Anything you can tell us about?
