A Picture Is Worth 100 Lbs.

September 18, 2009

Bunny will do just about anything to avoid a camera. This is because, invariably, she feels she looks terrible in pictures. She is always shocked by how horribly fat she looks in photos.

It’s an interesting phenomenon that she doesn’t feel this way when looking in the mirror. She’s usually OK with her reflection. Or at least not horrified.Mirror

Is this a trick her mind plays? If so, why doesn’t her mind play the same game with photos as it does with the mirror?

She has the same experience with other people. Someone will say, “Oh my God, look how much weight Jack has lost!” She has seen Jack, but really doesn’t see a difference. This is a curiosity that happens all the time to Bunny.

We’ve poked around the internet to see what we can find on this topic, but strangely, we haven’t found anything on point yet. We haven’t given up. If anyone has any thoughts on this, please share.

Of course, there’s an easy solution. Drop enough weight that Bunny looks good in photos as well as in the mirror. At that point, who cares what the reason is.

On that subject, Bunny, we haven’t seen you at the gym this week.


Excuse us.
