Default OK folks you have 24 hours...........(gulp)

At 1:30am Wednesday morning the pic in my profile comes down.

This is not only as per B-Babes suggestion that we post a pic in our profiles that will make lurkers sign up out of curiosity - but this is a personal empowerment moment for me.

Wayne has spent the last 14 years telling me I am sexy and beautiful. He likes to experiment with taking pics of me. I have never ever shown any of these pics to anyone. I've still been too embarrassed about my body to do that. WEll, last year he snapped this pic. And I felt like all the things he had been saying I was for so long. I think this is the most beautiful pic I have ever taken. And I feel sexy and confident about it. Oh yeah I played with the color a bit so it looked more artsy. LOL

Posting this could be the biggest mistake of my life - considering how many people don't like me. LOL But this is my way of saying I believe I am a beautiful woman - and also giving the finger to a world who says I'm not.

24 hours - that's all folks.

Sandie Z

Hi Sandy

If I were you, I would leave that photo in your profile. From a woman who's body shape and size is similar to your own, it's a lovely shot. You should be proud of it and you most definately not be embarrassed to show it in this forum. As long as that is what YOU want?

It took me a very long time to accept my own shape. I am now, very proud to be me

Cheers

Joa

Sandie, I agree with the above poster!! Your beautiful and your husband did an excellent job on the photo! It has a mystic appeal to it.

I hope that you reconsider keeping the photo up and show our fellow posters here that beauty can come in all shapes! Kudos to your husband for being able to capture your alluring beauty!!

Sandie, it's a beautiful pic of a beautiful woman. The only reason I see to take it down is your personal desire to do so...if anyone has a problem with it, it is their problem and not your worry.

Sandie that's a beautiful picture, thank you for sharing!

Sometimes it takes just one special photo for us to start understanding just how beautiful we really are. I enjoy doing portraits of people who are ashamed to have pictures taken of them, then showing them that one picture that makes them smile, and then they want more!

All I can say is "listen to your husband more!"

Well, OK, I can say a little more than that. Listen to him not as in "that is what he thinks, or wants me to think that he thinks," but as in: "this man who I deeply trust believes this thing. I should listen carefully and try to imagine that it could be true!"

Oh, and one more thing: Thanks for sharing

Beautiful picture, Sandie, and gutsy of you to share it. As for the above statement, see, one of the things that makes us FAs sad and often frustrated is how so many of the fat women we admire hate their bodies and are ashamed of them. We then find ourselves in this weird position to be told that what we find indescribably beautiful, sexy, alluring and enticing is not only rejected by society at large, but even by the very women we admire. This is why it is a wonderful step that you are now able to see the beauty of who and what you are.

Yup Conrad - and at 45 I think it's about damn time I accepted who and what I am. Screw the rest of the world. And after all this time Wayne deserves a woman who is confident about the way she looks. After all - he's always known I was beautiful. It just took me a while to see it.

Thanks for the compliment. And thanks for the venue you have given us all where we can learn how to love ourselves.

Thank you everyone for the compliments - you have no idea how much it all means to me.

And especially Cat - your compliment meant the world considering how much I love your pics and your confidence! Thank you for that.

Looks like we still have a ton or lurkers tho. OH well - maybe I'll keep the picture in my profile anyway.

Would Rubens not have posed you against some luscious lemon sky, a spaniel at your feet, wreathed in naught but a slow smile?


Sandy - it's a gorgeous photo.
