A few commenters have asked me to post pictures of myself, and I always have the same response: I don’t want to post pictures of myself online; God knows what trolls could do to them! And while this is true, trolls CAN ruin one’s image with simple photo-manipulation, that’s not the main reason why I don’t post images of myself.
More than anything, I’m afraid of what people will think of me when they see me. My hands are a bit deformed. I’m visibly Jewish. I have red hair. I’m not obese. Basically, I worry that I will ruin whatever (better) conception people have of me by posting photos.
And it’s a shame, because I would have liked to have kept a photo diary of my changing weight. I’ve lost 11 pounds, and I can really start to see and feel my clothes fitting me better. So, I have a compromise: enter Weight Mirror.
Weight Mirror is a cool photo-manipulation tool that guesstimates how your weight will change your body. It seems pretty accurate, though I carry my weight a smidge heavier. Though this is their default model, as in it’s not me, it shows my weight fairly well.
Yeah… so there’s the weight(ish). The internet is full of craziness.
