Time Warp Tuesday was Jenn's idea - post pictures we keep around the house and tell the stories behind them - come play with us!
Truth be told, this photo is not up on the wall. I keep it under the bed.
Tom had this photo of me (taken when I was 25 a couple of years before we met), made into one of those big canvas portraits and surprised me with it when we moved into a new house. As I was 20 years older and maybe 80 pounds heavier - I did not take it well. I took it as his indictment of my failing to maintain my looks.
He didn't mean it that way, but I was never able to put the picture up in the house.
Now I look at it to see what I once was as I am preparing to undergo weight loss surgery today. I hope that a year from now I will be able to see a picture of myself on the wall and recognise that young woman in myself again.
