Project Ramona: The Science of Taking a Pic
Posted 9/18/2012 11:32:00 AM

Getting my picture taken has always been a scientific process .  I get technical!  You don't just SMILE when you're a big girl.  Angle the body away from the camera . Wear v-neck for publicity shots. NEVER allow anyone to photograph you with the camera pointing up.  Don't  EVER give the camera your full face.  Crane your neck to make the double chin go away. Suck in the stomach. Stand behind a skinny chick. I could go on for paragraphs   Sometimes I forget I don't have to do all that now that I've lost 60 pounds. 


Since I had gastric bypass at Catawba Valley Medical Center, I don't have to think so much when somebody pulls out a camera.  Untagging myself in Facebook pics is no longer my second job.  I used to untag myself in any picture that made me look too big or showed me eating.  I assumed people would see me stuffing my face and comment "now we know why you are so damn BIG!" 


There were so many things to be self conscious about:


talking about the fatty foods I like


crowding the passenger next to me on the plane


the elevator at church doing that little dip when I'd get on


being asked to model in charity fashion shows when I was sure NOTHING cute would fit AND people wowed by  the size of my thighs on the runway


living in fear of getting a stain on my shirt. 

( skinny chick with a stain just had a little mishap.  In my mind, a big girl with a stain gets judged as a gravy guzzler)


The truth is, no one is more aware of their size than someone who is super-sized.  Facebook pics were just the biggest reminder

    We often hear about HGH mentioned controversial in the media, hcg injections including TV, Web video or read about it on the Internet. Many professional athletes and A-list Hollywood actors are using HGH for everything from gaining Buy Anavar Online a competitive strength and endurance advantage or for simple anti-aging medical enhancement because of the positive effects HGH has on skin, brain, bone, muscle, joint and organ regeneration. GHRP-6 HGH is being labeled the “anti-aging HGH miracle” because of the numerous medical studies suggesting its ability to turn back the age clock, helping adults over 30 who are experiencing the premature symptoms of aging to look and feel younger internally and externally. cjc-1295

    The little indicator rod stands "erect' when the power reserve is full, and lowers when you need to give the watch more juice. Whether or not MB&F intended it as such, best replica watches  there is a sexual innuendo here. The manually-wound movement has a power reserve of 45 hours. The case design is interesting and I think will look great on the wrist. It is surprisingly held-back design wise. My feeling is that MB&F was going more for elegance versus turn of the century futurism. This fact is again seen in the LM1's most visible feature, the double white watch dials with blued steel hand and Roman numerals. This is about as "classic" as you can get with a watch face - exactly what Busser was going for. While the minute hand is on the shorter side, swiss replica watches MB&F does use a different style of hand for the hours - so legibility is fine. While the dials appear to be enamel, they are done in a fancy type of lacquer chosen for its quality appearance, and the fact that it will not crack over time like enamel replica watches swiss .
